Very satisfied with our stay here. Pros: central location, 5 min taxi ride or 20 min walk from Santa Justa train station; 15 min walk to the Cathedral and city centre; the walk towards the city centre is interesting and there are many restaurants on the way; pleasant and helpful staff; clean and lovely interior. Cons: if English is important for you, beware. The staff didn't speak English at all, so we used about 10 words of Spanish that we knew and some gestures (which was sufficient, though). The TV in the room requires using a combination of 2 remote controls, and we had to ask how to use them. We didn't find any English-speaking TV channels (not a big deal but worth mentioning). Also, the place was very hard to find at first, since no taxi drivers knew the address. In fact the first taxi took us to a completely different _Hotel_ (not Hostel) San Francisco elsewhere. So make sure to tell the taxi driver the main street intersection (look it up on Google), not just the tiny Gonzalez Leon street that no one has ever heard of, and/or bring a map with exact location. Also keep in mind, that this is close to a landmark called Puerta De La Carne, which is just 2 short blocks away (and is also the name of the city bus stop a block away) and that everyone knows. Overall: it's a lovely and very convenient place and I will definitely stay there again if I'm ever back to Seville.
