We have just left Carmens' Hotel Holos and are missing her and her teams personnel, informed and welcoming approach. The hotel is approx 5kms from the center of town. Situated in a renovated early 1900's 'expo' villa with seven rooms over three floors. Our room (6), was adjacent to a outdoor terrace and was compact, but modern and functional; with large windows opening to view across the rooftops of the neighbouring villas. We had some concerns about the location as we are not used to public transport, (NZ is just starting to sort that out), but Carmen sorted us out with a local bus/swipe card and off we went, the bus stop is 2 minutes from the hotel and drops you right into town (5minutes) and visa versa... easy as. The hotel is adjacent to the University of Sevilla, safe, friendly folk who are only too happy to help and practice their english. But back to Carmen and her crew who all seemed sincerely concerned that we enjoyed our time in their fine city, which isn't hard, as Sevilla is great, but they make bookings, give a guide and list of great bars and restaurants to try, we almost knocked the list of over 3 days, and don't mind or at least seem to mind the odd dumb question that we seem unable to keep bottled up; these seem to come up over breakfast, (which was simple, fresh squeezed juice, espresso coffee, toasted breads and homemade toppings) when Carmen helps plan your day.
Hotel Holos is a small hotel away from the tourist throng, which provides a calm welcoming retreat, and a taste of 'local colour', we would recommend Hotel Holos without reservation.
