My wife being both the planner of this holiday and the driver of our rented vehicle decided to heed the urgent advice of tourist guides not to enter Sevilla by car, and chose this hotel in near-by Carmona as a point of departure for our expedition to Sevilla by taking a bus (yes, this is a long sentence).
Carmona is a pleasant little town worth a one-day stopover, and the Rincon de las Descalzas hotel is a highly recommended choice to spend the night. It has only a handful of rooms, "12+1" as the young woman at the reception told us, and they trust you with the front door key since after 22.00 hrs the door is locked. We stayed in the room called "Sexta," which overlooks no less than two miniature patios and combines a bedroom with a semi-separate little living with a bench and a desk. Everything is small and romantic in this friendly hotel, which has an elevator.
We left our car on the street (free of charge) close to the Puerta Cordoba, hoped for the best, and took a bus which runs almost hourly, takes about 50 minutes, and costs a few euros to arrive at San Bernardo bus station in Sevilla (from there, take a tram further into the centre; tickets can be bought from coin-operated machines on the platform). Two days later we returned to Carmona to pick up an intact car and continue our journey.
