Simon Hotel
Ranked #47 of 177 Hotels in Seville
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We enjoyed our stay, and found it to be a good value. The hotel has one of the best locations for walking and exploring the Cathedral area. The little side street is a busy during the day, but quite at night. The beds were fairly recent and of good quality. The floors tiles were from the 1920's and interesting, as well as some historic fixtures of the hotel. Bathroom basic. Expect a rustic and original décor. Many years ago, this may have been the most luxurious hotels in Seville. It still has character, but is original and has probably never undergone a full restoration. The rooms were clean, the furniture a little worn and the A/C weak, but sufficient. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We loved the charming historical lobby with its beautiful light. The fantastic central location meant that we could retreat to the lobby and read or write when we wanted a quiet moment. Our first floor room was perfect for a family, full of Andalusian character. We ate breakfast outside of the hotel at the corner coffee shop. Because of the central location I thought the hotel would be a bit touristy, but instead it was lovely and unique.

Stayed there for 3 nights. Excellent location, charming rooms, needs a little renovation but still a lovely and comfortable stay. Breakfast is ok but there are many places around that are worth it. Cathedral and bullring very close and lovely restaurants around the hotel. Great location and charming rooms !

We've stayed at this hotel three times over a number of years and have always thought it a lovely hotel and a fantastic location. It's best to ask for a room with a balcony on the upper floors. The ground floor room we had was a bit small and it took about 20 minutes before we could get hot water in the shower. It was on the street level as well but luckily we weren't disturbed by a lot of noise at the time.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony on the upper floors.

Location: Seville Cathedral just around the corner. Style and decorations of the hotel is also quite nice, lobby reminds museum. Cleaning every day. Friendly, helpful and English-speaking staff.
As mentioned in the hotel description WiFi is indeed available only in the lobby, and free of charge.

Great location and only five minutes walk to most of the historical places in Sevilla. The room is clean and tidy and the bathroom is very nice. The staff is very helpful and speaks good English. The only problem is that Wifi is only available in the lobby, which is a very nice place to stay as well. But be careful of mosquitoes if you want to use Wifi for longer time during the night.

This hotel, built in an 18th century town house, is a piece of art and history. The rooms have amazing tiled walls. The very helpful staff is fluent in English and French. The only problem was that there was no exhaust for the bathroom. Otherwise the bathroom was very well equipped.

The location was so central that we hardly used the public transport during our stay. We arrived and departed on taxis and visited all the sights on foot. The Cathedral was a 3 minutes walk away, so were the taxi stand, eating and shopping areas.

We did not give it a try, but the hotel had a wonderful dining room for breakfast. It truly was a hotel with a lot of character and charm.
