“Perfect City Escape”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We thouroughly enjoyed our time at Hotel Holos. Favorite aspects include the knowledgable and attentive owner, lovely staff, and immaculate attention to detail. Perfect advice on the 'musts' in Seville, from food to culture. We will be back, most definitely, to visit and experience again.

Praises up and down!

Room Tip: Ask for room #7!

You will see from other reviews that this small hotel is a converted large home in a good, quiet residential area about 10-15 minutes drive out of the central city. There is a large sports stadium nearby, but really you ned to travel into town to see or do things. We took the option of going in by bus, which was convenient and cheap, running very regularly through the day and well into the night. The hospitality of Carmen and her staff more than made up for any inconvenience of the daily travel into the central city. They were extremely helpful with recommendations, maps and reservations. The rooms themselves weren't huge but very tidy. The bathroom was good and the air conditioning worked well. We stayed on the third floor and there was no lift, but this wasn't any problem for us.Probably the best endorsement was that we wound up staying twice as long as we had initially intended.

We recently spent 5 nights at Hotel Holos while we explored Seville.Our room was immaculate and comfortable with a balcony, the bathroom fully equipped and the shower powerful with constant hot water..
Carmen and her lovely staff could not have been more helpful with maps, bus cards, advice on where to go and reservations. I would thoroughly recommend this small friendly hotel to anyone visiting Seville

We stayed at Hotel Holos for four nights and were glad we did. We were initially welcomed warmly by Doña Carmen at our arrival and she and her staff did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. They explained potential spots to visit as well as making reservations for us. They were always very pleasant.

The hotel is located away from the downtown area of Seville in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The soccer stadium is a couple blocks away but we cannot comment on game days. Downtown is easily accessible by buses 3 and 34; once on the bus, it is perhaps 10-15 minutes, depending on traffic, to the downtown area. Carmen provided us with a bus card for our use which we ultimately needed to refill. If you wish to spend an evening in the area, about two blocks away are a couple restaurants for tapas or a full dinner. We visited the "Rincon de Monolo" and had excellent tapas and salads. Irene or Carmen can recommend some restaurants.

The hotel itself has rooms on three floors though it is considered a two story one because the ground floor is "0". We had a room on the top floor. There is no elevator but they take up your luggage. A person with limited mobility would have difficulty going to any of the upper rooms. There is one room on floor "0" . The stairway is a touch narrow but well lit if you use the light switch. (On Friday night, each step had a lit votive candle in a safe receptacle going up the stairs. Nice effect.) The room was air conditioned but we really had no need for it. There is no safe in the room but they take good care in knowing their guests. The bed was comfortable and each night a little origami work was left on your bed. The bathroom in our room was quite generous and they provided complementary bathrobes. We were impressed by the Venetian plaster in the bathroom. Our room also had a small loft accessible by a ladder. The breakfast is included in the price and it consists of some organic bread, juice, coffee, olive oil and a selection of jams and jellies. It was more than sufficient. They do not serve any other meals. However, if you desire fruit or wine or beer, etc., after you return from the sites, all you need to do is ask. If you need to leave early, they will have a breakfast ready for you before you go. Laundry and folding are available on a per washing machine load basis and is ready the same day. In addition, there is a sitting area on the roof as well as an outdoor shower for I imagine hot days.

The decor is minimalist. We completely recommend this small hotel. If you want to enjoy a place away from the hustle and noise of downtown Seville, but still convenient enough to get there quickly, this is your place.

We received a very warm welcome from Carmen and her staff. Since it was our honeymoon, we were given the best room, champagne and tasty fruit, which was served on the terrace of the hotel overlooking similar rustic and charming balconies of Spanish houses, like our own hotel. We felt very much at home with Carmen's warmth and care for us, even going so far as to personally find a way to book a tour for us of the Alhambra in Granada, even though on all official websites it was book out.

We enjoyed a typical Andalusian homemade breakfast everyday after which Carmen or Amaya gave us a map of the city, information on what to see as well as directions to and from the city. Even though the hotel was in a quiet residential area, it was very easy to get to the city by bus and for late evenings, we frequented a tapas bar in the neighborhood which had a variety of dishes, quick service and good prices. The hotel also had bikes available that we could use to get into the city.

At night, we also returned to our rooms to see a sweet quote and an origami animal, which was there to see us off to dreamland. We really felt cared for and are so glad we picked this place as our first hotel in Spain. We highly highly recommend it. Thank you Carmen and Amaya!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Holos - it was nice to be only a short bus ride away from the centre of Sevilla and it really wasnt an inconvenience as they are very regular and cheap too. Although we have visited Sevilla many times Carmen was very helpful in recommending some places we hadn't been to including an excellent but ridiculously cheap tapas bar.
The breakfast was very simple but the hotel was very clean , staff very pleasant and I would certainly recommend this hotel.

We visited Seville for 1.5 days and received excellent help from Irene at the Holos office. Restaurants were recommended, train and bus instructions were given, and special assistance with rental car and other hotel reservations made our visit very easy and efficient. The hotel is very small, only 7 rooms, It is located in a quiet, charming and convenient neighborhood away from the city center. The hotel is a renovated modern simple uncluttered decor that has a Danish look and feel. It is a delightful contrast to the Spanish architecture surrounding the city. I rate this boutique hotel because the rooms are so conservatively small. But everything you need is here! I would come again.
