“Location is perfect!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

We live a couple hours from Sevilla and go there fairly regularly. This is the fourth hotel we have stayed at in the area, and because of the amazing location and very friendly staff, it is my new favorite. As others have mentioned, parking is a challenge (as it is for most of the hotels in the historic center of the city) and it is a little dated, but it is very clean and comfortable and you are right in the middle of everything. I was not disturbed by any street noise, but the sound of the cathedral bells in the morning is charming.

We did not eat breakfast at the hotel, but there is a Starbucks less than two blocks away and numerous little cafes just steps outside the door. There is also a lovely rooftop pool and bar. It was a bit cold and rainy when we were there, so we were not able to really experience that area, but we have already made a reservation for another weekend there when we have friends visiting.

If you want a five-star modern hotel, this is not it, but if you want a clean and charming hotel in the center of the historic district, with easy access to everything (other than parking, which you will have to walk to) then this is a great little find!

Unbalanced price/qulity. Location is top , with a view on the cathedral. Unfortunately hotel was seriously overpriced. Rooms are noisy , small, with old beds and matrasses, simple bathroom, toilet kept flushing.
Breakfast too plain and simple for the price.

Located in the heart of Seville old town, Dona Maria is within walking distance to all important sights of Seville. The Cathedral, The Alcazar and Torre del Oro. Getting to the hotel by car, quite difficult and private parking very pricey. Our Superior room was bright and spacious, with two comfy beds, nice wall décor, A/C, flat screen TV and large bathroom.
The rooftop terrace had great views of the Cathedral and Giralda Bell Tower. Breakfast, just so-so, nothing special. Staff, ok.
If you are a light sleeper, the noise from the street below will keep you awake. Cathedral bells ringing in the morning add this certain charm to the place.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floor.

We stayed in Dona Maria with a group of friends, 3 a room. The rooms were a little bit dated, but clean. The 3rd bed was not suitable for a large person (> 1m85cm).
The location is fantastic and right in the middle of the city, but without noises! The roof top terrace is marvelous. Would stay here again.

Great hotel, at the centre of everything, rooms were very clean and modern, concierge gave a great recommendation on a restaurant for lunch and dinner and he was bang on each time. Bell boys very friendly and accommodating. Only draw backs are parking, and no offer of breakfast. Had to use underground parking three blocks away.

I agree with all the good comments about this hotel which is full of character.
We have stayed here twice in February and been lucky to get a good package with breakfast and a bottle of Champagne included. Our room 208 was very pleasant. It had good lighting and an up to date bathroom.
We liked the breakfast room and thought the choice of food was adequate.
The only drawback for us is the lack of bookable car parking. On both visits we parked at Imagen and walked the 10 - 15 minutes to the Hotel. As the carpark charge for 48 hours was 43Euros we may have to rethink that for any future visit but we will still want to stay at Dona Maria.

This hotel has an excellent location right next to the cathedral. It made exploring the old town and stumbling in after a few drinks in the evening very convenient.
They have a fantastic looking rooftop bar and pool as well as a brand new bar next to the lobby. The rooms were very clean and the maids visited every day but the rooms were very dated. We had an internal facing room with no access to fresh air, it was like a sauna!! It made for a very uncomfortable nights sleep. Considering it was only 16-17 degrees outside and raining most the time this temperature was just crazy. It looked like the room had air con but we later discovered after speaking to reception that this was heating. They only had one central system and they didn't have it switched to air con at this time of year. We asked to be moved rooms but instead they provided us with a fan which made the experience slightly more bearable. A couple of other irritating factors were the lack of electrical plug sockets and no ironing boards. On a more positive note they did provide shower gel, shampoo etc... , a hair dryer, a mini bar, a TV and a safety deposit box.
We loved Seville and are quite likely to visit again but wouldn't stay at this hotel and wouldn't recommend to friends.
