“Great hotel in the Barrio of Santa Cruz”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

The Hotel Murillo is located in the Barrio of Santa Cruz in the city of Sevilla, Spain. The large cathedral and Giralda Tower are less than 5 minutes from the hotel, walking. The rooms are good sized with all of today's modern conveniences including air conditioning. Breakfast is included and is delightfully well stocked. There is a roof-top terrace as well where one can order both food and drinks. From there one can see the Giralda Tower which is well-lit at night. The Management is friendly and very helpful. There are no cars or other types of transportation in the Barrio, including taxis, however taxis stop on the edges of this location which makes dropping off and picking up passengers very easy. Staying in this location is an adventure!

Fabulous position in the Santa Cruz Barrio, 5 minutes to the Cathedral and main street. Good breakfast, great staff. Our room was quite small and a bit noisy, but just ask for a room change. Roof top terrace bar and also a restaurant just out side the entrance to the hotel if you were too tired to walk another 300 metres to the next restaurant!

Room Tip: Make sure your room is not on the ground floor numbered 100-110

If you're looking for the best of Seville's historic Santa Cruz area, the Hotel Murillo is the place. There are more luxurious modern hotels not that far away, but there's nothing like being in the maze-like district itself, just five minutes away from the historic cathedral and Alcazar. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff was excellent and very helpful. It's very close to nightlife and some great restaurants (though not the one right outside its front door; we tried it and were disappointed before asking for suggestions from the staff and noticing that none of those suggestions included their neighbor). It's a nice morning or evening walk to the amazing Plaza de Espana (go when the lighting is most dramatic). You'll have to be OK with a public parking garage just outside Santa Cruz and walking to the hotel. Entering the maze for the first time armed only with a Google Maps app, it took us 25 minutes to get to the hotel. Once we had our bearings, it took us 10 minutes to get back to the car. Go around Santa Cruz on the main street and enter through the other end at the park and you'll find the hotel much more quickly. When leaving, go out the same way you came in and walk around to the garage. But we love Santa Cruz, Seville, and the Hotel Murillo.

This hotel was well above the other 2-star hotels we stayed in. It was a huge plus to have public spaces like the roof-top terrace and, near the lobby, the lounge. Breakfast was very good, and service was friendly and helpful. Rooms matter though. We changed from our balcony rooms overlooking the street - and the night noise - to quieter rooms which also happened to be larger. Our first rooms were single occupancy and were very cramped. So that and the night noise was off-putting. Location was very good. I'd stay there again, but only in a double room not facing the street.

Room Tip: As mentioned, ask for a room not overlooking the street. And if you're travelling solo, the doub...

The hotel Murillo is in a perfect position in the Santa Cruz area, just a 5 minute walk to the Cathedral and with lots of bars and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk but still very quiet overnight.

Our room had a balcony at the front of the hotel overlooking the bar opposite which was pleasant to use in the early evening. The room had twin beds pushed together and good air conditioning. It wasn't huge but we didn't spend a lot of time there.

The hotel reception staff are very friendly and helpful. Our flight was cancelled because of an air traffic controllers strike and we managed to get back to the hotel for one night and the staff helped with printing off new boarding cards etc. We used the terrace bar for one evening which was at a very reasonable price and the bar opposite, just two steps from the front entrance did great tapas and was very friendly.

The breakfast was good with a wide range of items to choose from.

I would recommend this hotel.
