“Worst Hotel I have stayed in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2007

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Could not wait to get
out in the morning. Did not unpack or used the toilet only. I have no
idea where the 4 stars come from. It was not any better than Motel. In a city as beautiful as seville, its a shame to spoil the stay there. Tiles broken and Missing in bathroom, lights did not work. No windows as metal shutters had to be closed as room on pathway. Difficult to find and right out of the way

Bottom line is...it is not near the airport. We viewed their website and stayed there to be near the airport, so from the moment we arrived we felt cheated. Everything else was fine. The staff were friendly, the rooms were fine, there were good shops nearby...but in the end, we'd prefer to stay with people who haven't misled us.

My family stayed here either end of a family holiday to the Costa De la Luz. Would I stay here again probably not.

The hotel although easy to find if you do your research properly is about 30 minutes from the airport when its quiet and 45 minutes when its busy. We stayed in a junior suite. The room was clean but the beds were uncomfortable, especially on the return leg. As previous reviews have mentioned their are no dining facilities at the hotel, the bar is quiet although reasonably priced. Breakfast was very average and compared to the 4 star hotel we stayed at on the coast was poor.

In my opinion I cannot see why this hotel rates 4 stars and feel that 3 would be more appropriate. We did venture into Seville on our return leg and found the information given by the hotel as useful and easy to follow.

In summary would I stay here whilst exploring Seville, no its to far out so you would need a car. As somewhere to sleep whilst passing through Seville, perhaps but do note the distances to the airport.

I stayed in this hotel to be close to the airport for an early morning flight. The hotel I had stayed in the nights before which was in the center of town was equally as close!
This hotel's lobby looks great, but everything is in it! The computer with internet access, the "restaurant", the reception. This means that it was very noisy and public, like lounging in an american mall.
The "restaurant" didn't exist, but is actually a bunch of plastic tables with a wide screen tv blaring spanish tv at you, while the barman serves you your choice of omelette or frozen pizza.
I wouldn't care too much about the lack of eating if there were anywhere else to go, but there is NOTHING in at least a 1/2 hour's walk in any direction. No shopping, no sites, no dining. Just an "exclusive" neighbourhood with nothing to see but their gates.
The room was a good size and looks alright, but the bathtub was mildewy in both of the rooms I stayed in (having asked to switch because of noise). The floors are marble which made them extremely cold, but maybe that's nice in the hotter months.
On top of all of this, the pool was closed.

No reason to stay at this remote hotel in a residential neighborhood with nothing to visit around it. There is no restaurant (just a "cafeteria" with frozen pizza), pool closed except for a few months mid-summer, noisy and the staff is not helpful. This is NOT an airport hotel as advertised. It is as far from the airport as a downtown Seville hotel, and much less interesting.

Choose this hotel because all internet hotel booking sites stated that it has "direct access to airport" and I had an early start for flight. The hotel web site also states this. It is, in fact, on the opposite site of the city to the airport. A taxi from hotel to airport cost €35.00 which is approx. €15.00 more expensive than a taxi from the city to the airport. It was also expensive for a taxi from the city to the Hotel and took the driver some time to find the Hotel.

I chose this hotel based on positive feedback at Trip Advisor. Sadly I regretted my decision to book us into a hotel that wasn't in the city, since, after arriving in Seville, it took an additional 90 minutes to find the hotel, inspite of stopping to ask for directions. There is also very limited access to restaurants in the neighborhood (nothing within walking distance).

We stayed there for 2 nights and had three rooms in that time. Another friend travelling with with us had 2 different rooms. The principal problem was airconditioning that either didn't work or the A/C unit, in the ceiling space of the bathroom, leaked so badly there was a contstant drip from the ceiling.

The upside is that the staff was very apologetic about the A/C problems and very accommodating about moving us.
