I sometimes feel that TripAdviser becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy when it comes to recommending restaurants, but works really well with hotels. Hotel Holos is one such gem.
We stayed in room 7, in the pent of the hotel; it is architecturally interesting, quiet, and clean plus there is a small terrace off the landing to catch some sun. We were also able to enjoy cold lemonade that had resulted from a tree being recently cut-down. Carmen also got us some local Olive oils, to take home.
We generally agree with the points already identified in other reviews, but a few points that we will add is that if you have a car, that you value, then parking in the allocated garage space 300m away is well worth the additional €15 per night. It offers a high level of security and avoids your car being used for bump parking. The walk (4.5km) from the hotel into Seville centre is superb, if the weather is OK. Walking into Maria Lucia Park where the 1929 exhibition was based is a real joy and seeing the Plaza de Espana (for free) one of the best things in the city. We found the No 3 bus from Puerta de Jerez back to the Stadium, very convenient to use. There are restaurants near to the hotel, so you do not have to go back into the city-centre at night.
A minor point of criticism is that Carmen is not taking notice of these reviews. We booked directly with the hotel and again, were not offered the chance to pay in Euros. If the price is quoted in Euros, then it is reasonable to expect to pay in Euros.
Carmen is extremely knowledgeable but offering just too-much information, all at once, takes up time and inevitably can become just a confused blur. “Can I help you with eating out, or sightseeing information?” would perhaps be an appropriate starting point.
That said I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel and will be doing so to friends.
