“Adequate”
Reviewed October 24, 2008

Stayed here for 2 nights in October. Can be a little difficult to find if your driving. But, I'd say that applies to most places in central Seville. Situated on a quite street within easy walking access to the centre. Plenty of bars, restaurants shops close by. Between 2 couples we stayed in rooms 1 and 2 on the ground floor, spotless clean, bring a bar of soap, was none there. If you're in room 1, you will diffinitely be woken up by the occasional car passing by in the early hours. So, if you can get a room upstairs. When you come out of the doorway turn left and then the first right you'll be on a quite enough street with some cheap cafes and restaurants. We used these as our last stop on the way back from the centre. When you come out of the doorway turn right and then left walk straight ahead you'll end up in the centre a few short minutes. Seville is a walking city so forget about cars, maybe a small moped if you wanted to. It's great fun just strolling around and getting lost in the maze of streets, you'll discover some great little places on your adventures. If you are driving you'll be parking in the plaza de aramas hotel car park. To get there the hostal is a one way street, continue to the end take a right and continue straight about 2 to 3 hundred yards. It's a big underground car park. Collect your ticket and get in guy at reception of the hostal to stamp it you'll get a small discount. English is limited in the hostal so maybe bring a few words with you or do as I do, hand waving and chicken noises you'll get your message accross. For eating your spoiled, just be wary of places near major sights, I find you can pay way over the odds for sub standard food in big cities. Just go where the locals go, and if something looks expensive just go around the corner or down that little lane that looks like nothing you'll find some great places. For restaurants I went to the tourist info near the main Cathedral and I asked for recommendations, she said she wasn't allowed to give recommendations and handed me a book of restaurants, I was not very please about this. I'm in a new city, I want to find where it's happening for food or entertainment. Anyway so we picked a restaurant from the book she gave to us, although the food was okay. It was way over-priced for what we got. We left the restaurant hungry and found another place down a tiny sidestreet, great food for a quarter of the price. Oh yeah I like food.

The hostal is really in the city center: 2 mins from restaurants, and shops/malls, and 10 mins from the touristic places to visit.
It is situated in a really small street, that seems calm.
We asked for a double room with one single bed , and therefore were on the ground floor (only 2 rooms with single bed, and both of them are on the ground floor). As it is was really in the entrance of the hostal and quite noisy ( directly on the street) we asked to change room. Hopefully there were no pbl to change. Much better we finally stayed in a quiet room ( in a patio) at the first floor.
Our stay was perfect, no noise before at least 9 am , and the people were nice. The room was very clean.

The room was not ready when we showed up. It wasn't as centered as I thought it would to the main touristic attractions. It was my 3rd trip in Europe and I must have stayed in more than 30 hostals total. I have never had such a bad experience. It was very noisy at night. The room was clean and had air conditioning as it was supposed to. The staff didn't speak a word of French nor English so it was extremely difficult to communicate evenwith my translating dictionary. The guy working at night was very rude with us, and even though we were always king and polite when asking for information of help, he kept yelling at us. He even refused to call us a taxi while our train was leaving at 6h00 AM on a Sunday and no bus was running. We had to ask the help of someone on the street and walk 5 minutes at dark to a public phone to call the taxi ourselves. Fortunaltely enough, except for this bad experience in the hostal, Seville is a very nice city to visit. I just recommend you to pay a few extra euros and go somewhere elseto stay.

I stayed there for a week. Clean and confortable rooms (but not to big) with air conditioning. Friendly staff. I travelled alone and felt safe there. I would stay there again definitely.

Stayed here for Semana Santa 08, mainly because no other options available but it turned out to be an excellent location. room was small but clean and comfortable. staff were friendly. location was safe and crucially during semana santa, it was quiet. It's 2 minutes from the main shopping streets and about 10 or so minutes from the cathedral. There are plenty of local coffee shops and bars nearby which are not overrun with tourists or have tourist prices! Various processions come within quite close proximity if that is what you are after. It's also very close to the bus station - plaza de armas.

Great location, very reasonably priced and good value for money, despite the unfavourable exchange rate! Rooms basic but comfortable and clean. Our Spanish came on in leaps and bounds as the staff, generally very helpful, friendly and elderly ,don't speak any English. Street noise can be a bit of a problem if you're a light sleeper so invest in some ear plugs. Sevillia is fantastico.

The staff at Hostal Museo speak very little/no English but are very friendly. The room we stayed in was small but immaculate and had a TV and air conditioning. The beds were very comfortable but the shower was tiny! It's about a 10 minute walk to the cathedral and about 5 minutes to the main bus station.
