We loved the Abanico. It is totally charming , convenient walking to all historical sights, and filled with tile, art, wood floors, intimate details that make you feel like you Arron the home of an important family from early Sevilla!

Great location, but really noisy roomsPosted May 23, 2014
Pros: Great location, nice rooms, free tea and coffee available all day.
Cons: The absolute lack of any sound proofing - we slept really badly every night.
Location: The hotel is in a great location - on the edge of the city centre, everything in easy walking distance and a great supermarket down the road.
The hotel is lovely and a great location, but the room doors are really thin and it's arranged around a central courtyard, so everytime someone rings the buzzer to come in during the night or chats to their friends on the way to their room, you hear everything. The walls are also really thin - on our last night, my boyfriend had to go and ask the people next door to keep the noise down as they were talking loudly. If they could sort out the soundproofing, I would highly recommend this hotel, but at the moment, I can't, as I came back from holiday more tired than when I went.

Fun location, nice hotelPosted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Just as the pictures show, it feels very Spanish on the inside, which I enjoyed. The location is close to a lot of sights and even closer to excellent tapas bars. The room was fairly comfortable, breakfast was perfect, and staff were extremely helpful.

A real winnerPosted May 14, 2014
Pros: Charm, location, price, freebies.
Cons: More a/o larger bars of soap.
Location: See above.
Abanico (a-ba-NI-co) was a default choice when the hotel we'd booked in the heart of the Santa Cruz barrio suddenly closed down. It's on the edge of the barrio, which makes it a 15 minutes (more-or-less) walk to the cathedral but it's also then a 15 minutes (more-or-less) walk to attractions outside the barrio (Belle Artes, the Macarena barrio, El Divina Salvador, Plaza del Duque de Victoria) and only 100 yards away from Casa de Pilates. There are well-respected restaurants nearby, and also neighborhood squares, grocery stores, and cafe-bars (although the hotel provides, gratis, coffee, tea, soup, hot chocolate, cookies and vino de naranja, along with a pleasant atrium in which to partake. And it also provides breakfast for 6 to 10 euros, depending on your choice). The air-conditioning and the shower worked, the toilet flushed, the windows opened. I wish we were someday returning to Seville, so that we could stay there again.

Picture was good but...Posted Apr 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
According to room charge, I thought the hotel is good enough, but not at all..... disappointed. Facilities and everything is old!!

Convenient hotel for sightsPosted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: Close to sights
Cons: Décor looks tired. On outside rooms need to keep windows closed because of street noise. Need to have aircon on.
Location: 10 minutes walk for Alcazar and calhedral
The room we were offered had a window onto a covered well and no fresh air. Breakfast coffee was poor and in general uninspiring

Nice hotel, great for short stayPosted Apr 5, 2014
Cons: Beds not the most comfortable
Traveling w/ family, hotel had room with 3 beds (hard to find) that was spacious. Very clean, good wifi, lobby provided daily, free coffee and hot drinks. Staff very helpful, arranged reservations and picked up tickets for local performance. Location is easy walk from train station @ 15-20 min and just minutes from many restaurants/stores. Hotel is on a very narrow street, heavily trafficked with no side walk (a little scary).
