“Great location, spacious rooms and well priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2011

We stayed at the hotel for three nights. The rooms were clean and spacious, particularly the bathroooms and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The location is great and the breakfast is very good value for money. A great place to stay.

Slick modern boutique hotel in great location. We had a comfortable room that was very quiet on the interior courtyard. The room was very clean, beds comfortable and a nice modern bathroom. The desk staff were very helpful. The hotel was well located to accessmain sights in Seville. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Interior courtyard room.

This was a two night stay during Holy Week. Seville was packed, and this hotel proved to be a great respite. Nice lobby with coffee maker, quiet patio, helpful staff. Bonus: the best Flamenco (traditional) place is right next door. Not good if you have a car.

Hotel Alcantara is the perfect choice for a well priced hotel in Seville, and it was a struggle to find something inexpensive even in March. The rooms are clean, simple and nicely decorated, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the location is spot on bang in the centre of the Barrio Sta Cruz and just a few minutes walk from the main site. Nothing glamourous but we didn't need anymore than it offered.

We chose Hotel Alcantara after reading reviews on several Seville hotels because comments on it were mostly positive and favourable. And a good choice it turned out to be.

Our room on the second floor was spacious, clean, well appointed, quiet and overlooked the internal quadrangle of this refurbished old Spanish style building. The location is brilliant with monuments of the old town within easy 5 to 10 minutes walking distance away - the Alcazar, Cathedral, Giralda, Bull Ring, Torre del Oro, University, India Museum, etc.

The airport bus (EA - fare 2.40€ each way) stop is 10 to 15 minutes walk from the hotel. And the Santa Justa railway station is 20 to 25 minutes walk via Santa Maria La Blanca street, etc.

We found a good fish & chips shop, without chips but with a variety of battered sea food (sold by weight - average price 22€ per kilo). There are tables outside the shop to order drinks and eat your purchase. Its location - right out of the front door, keep on the right pavement and it is on the right past the restaurant and magazine stall; a 5 minute walk,

Benny and Christian at the hotel reception were cheerful, helpful and friendly. They chilled our supermarket purchased wine and beer, supplied wine glasses and took the cork out of the wine bottle for us. We did not have a cork screw. One evening we put up our tired sightseeing feet up, chilled out with good Spanish wine and watched Egyptians running riot in Cairo on our the flat panel TV which had CNN.

Breakfast was good value too but no fruits. A shame considering so much produce is grown in the area. Marmalade orange and lemon trees are everywhere! The coffee, although machine made, provided a choice of Expresso, Latte, Cappucino, Mochiato, etc, and tasted great as it was made from freshly ground beans.

The only shortfall, if really a shortfall, was lack of ventillation in the adequate bathroom. Hot shower with door shut and it steams up.

We recommend this hotel. The location justifies the choice.

Situated in the heart of the historic and picturesque Santa Cruz area, close to the Cathedral and surrounded by numerous traditional Andalusian restaurants and authentic tapas bars, the Hotel Alcántara is located in a very quiet and narrow pedestrian-only street. The comfortable and spacious twin-bedded room - a doble superior - had a three-window view overlooking the internal courtyard, and the well-appointed bathroom comprised a pair of washbasins with a separate wc room. The staff at reception were attentive, helpful and very friendly. The optional cold buffet breakfast (5€) was more than adequate with a good choice. A perfect base for a sight-seeing visit and very competitively priced; its two-star rating simply means no frills but worth noting is the free wifi provision.

this hotel/hostel is in a great location, it is clean friendly and very guest helpful.
go to the "flamenco show" IN the hotel, It is authentic no matter what the locals say.

internet is available in the rooms, and you can take a bus from the train station, to walking distance, BUT if I did it again I would hail a cab at the train station, probably 10 euros or less, maybe 6. I paid 6 From the hotel to the train station.

Again, this is a great place to stay.
