“Excellent place for a night or 2”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I really loved this hotel. The room size and staff were wonderful. The down side is the supermarket across the street has very noisy deliveries in the morning so please bring ear plugs as I did. This was my favorite place I stayed in all of Spain. I wish they has wifi I. Rooms and not in the hallway. It didn't work with my iPad either but the girl at reception allowed me to use their computer for free since it was not working with my device. The coffee shop is an auto espresso machine which whips up hot water, espresso, steamed milk and hot chocolate. They also have free orange wine tastings and free cookies after 11 am.

Room Tip: No room facing the supermarket

This is a charming hotel located right in the centre of Seville. The hotel is brimming with character and offers excellent-value accommodation in the heart of this beautiful city.

My room overlooked the inner-courtyard, which although not much of a view, let lots of natural light. The room itself was spacious and charming and offered everything you'd expect. Additionally, the bathroom was also a good size and was very clean too.

I particularly liked the breakfast area where you could help yourself to refreshments throughout the day. They even have a library with books (in several languages) and some useful tourist guides to help make the most of this wonderful city.

As previously mentioned, the hotel is very clean throughout and the staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending it to any other traveller.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the inner courtyard are quieter but have no view.

Friendly and helpful staff. Free coffee and biscuits after noon. Walking distance to cathedral is 10 min. Nice bars and restaurants in direct neighborhood. If you are traveling by car, then public parking (20€/day) is available just 5 min walking distance from the hostel . We stayed in Abril B&B for two nights. One guy from reception told me that there is a free Flamenco session tonight in one of the bars in the neighborhood. If you're looking for Tapas and drinks, then you will find a plenty of excellent bars and restaurants within 15 min walking distance. The only deficit was (in our case) the slow WIFI connection on the room.

We've stayed here for a week. The room was spic and span and suprisingly spacious, the beds were excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpfull and spoke Englisch.
Abril is located in the historical center and the places of interest are on walking distance.
Because of our arrival in the middle of the night, we took a cab to get here from the airport. Took about 20 minutes; € 30,--
Wifi was poor.
We had breakfast outside the hotel, the deposit for the remote (tv and airco) was charged on our creditcard.
For those with sensible ears; it is a bit noisy, but for us it was not a problem.
We enjoyed our stay!

Semana Santa; we had the pleasure to enjoy the start of it. It was a great experience. But after the first two and half days of the Holy Week, we did not mind leaving Sevilla; during these processions, the city was completely 'out of order' and so was public life. ( not to mention the huge crowds in the small and narrow streets.)
But for those who are less shy ;-), it is an experience of a life time! My advice; make sure you leave halfway for quieter resorts, even if that means your going home........

We stayed here for Two nights in December and found the place to be good value for money.
The hotel is a short walk from the centre of town. Staff were excellent and spoke good English.
We had issues connecting to the WIFI in our room but worked ok in the common areas.
The room itself was clean and had air con.

I stayed here last year and it was an ideal space to stay as I walked to every place of interest from here. The staff were helpful and happy to wait while I spoke in my halting spanish - there english was perfectly adequate, but seemed to like the fact that I tried! The breakfast selection was good, the room, a single, was good, It was clean and tidy. In short very good value for money.

This hotel is in a good walkable location, across from a grocery store and around plenty reasonable priced bars/cafes/restaurants. It's clean and the room was nicely decorated. The promised perks were a little disappointing... the free wifi had a poor signal and often cut out. In order to get a remote for the TV and the AC you need to put down a 30 euro deposit (which of course wasn't told to me while I was checking in only after getting to my room and doing a thorough search did I realize they were missing) free coffee shop is a cool concept but less than useful as the offer is not on the table in the morning. A decent place, not the best.
