“A Piece of Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

I really love this hotel and would highly recommend it for anyone who is thinking of visiting Seville and with time to spare. It is located about half an hour drive away from Seville and the town provide a shuttle bus service to it.

The Parador Carmona is situated in a little town in Carmona and it's lovely to spend a quiet day in the charming town.

The Parador is actually a state owned restored castle and I really have a memorable time there with my boyfriend. It was romantic and the bedroom had a spectacular view!! Read my blog for more pictures: http://life-bite.blogspot.sg/2013/01/parador-de-carmona-carmona-town-in.html

Room Tip: Ask for the room that overlook the Andulusian plains.

I have yet to be disappointet with Spanish paradores, and Carmona is no exception. The Parador is in an old palace/fortress, very respectfully modernized, and with a style and flair that makes your stay special. In additon you have the lovely historical town of Carmona just outside the walls of the Parador and a fantastic view of the plain to the east and south of the Parador. It is also a good base for day trips to Seville and Cordoba.

We spent a very pleasant new year eve here, with good food and service from a friendly staff.

Room Tip: We had a great room, quiet and comfortable on the ground floor facing the plain to the south.

The Parador itself is lovely. Free parking right in front. Wonderful views, and friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast, not inexpensive, is one of the better ones that you get at a Parador. The sitting area overlooking a lovely patio area, as well as a terrace, are both pleasant. Access to a lovely plaza, as well as to the downtown area of the city, is easy. A 10 minute walk. Don´t miss the Puerta de Sevilla.

Enough has been said here about the wonderful hilltop location, the beautiful garden, the wide view across the plains, the stern castle-like building, and the charming historic towncentre of Carmona itself. But....the hotel itself oozes a certain middle-class atmosphere. Is it the fact that the hotel is apparently in use by travelling parties and company-meetings? Is it that the staff at breakfast, dinner and bar seems a bit uninterested and tired? Is it the smallish rooms, with bathrooms that need a spot of modernising, and the tired furniture? Is it the fact that you indeed do hear a lot of the doings of your neigbours. Is it the narrowish beds?
Being a Parador means that standards of upkeep, food and the like are good. Being a Parador in Carmona also means a stay in style, with a Moorish patio plus fountain, with huge dining and sitting rooms and high ceilings, and an atmosphere of good old chivalric times. But....as a hotel it could be even better.

The building, lounges, courtyard, views & grounds are amazing. The room was comfortable although soundproofing seemed to be an issue, we think from someone walking in heels upstairs! There also seemed to be an issue with flies and local dogs barking. We chose not to eat at the restaurant but tried to find somewhere in town.. which proved fruitless after 9.30pm and so we ended up with peanuts for dinner! Glad we were only here a night and if you are considering it as an alternative to staying in Seville, I would seriously think again.

Wow! Wow!Wow!. The Parador at Carmona is a Palace and the word Grand does not do it justice. It's magnificent. It's perched on top of hill but think small mountain with breathtaking views across the plains. Just imagine sitting on the terrace, the top of the world, enjoying a cold Cava, and soaking up the sun. Wander around the cool interiors. Wonder at the magic of the moorish courtyard with a fountain gently setting the mood. Enjoy dinner in the wonderful restaurant with stunning views. We had a magnificent room on the same floor as reception. Absolutely brilliant, and again, those fantastic views. Lovely staff, super welcome. It was wonderful.

Room Tip: We took dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Both excellent.
