2 Nights in Sevilla
Posted Oct 4, 2016
We chose this hotel for its location and easy walking access for sightseeing, eating and shopping. In this instance mission accomplished as any traveller would be spoiled for choice regardless of what they wish to do. The downside to this hotel's location is that its proximity to the Cathedral means that the sounds of the bells ringing, including during on the hour very hour throughout the night and early morning, disturbs a decent nights rest. On arrival the woman at reception was abrupt and far from welcoming. In fact it seemed that our presence was almost an inconvenience to her. After the customary registration we were allocated our room. This 'Superior Double' room was disappointing in that there was far from anything that was superior about it. The decor, as is the case throughout the hotel building interior, was dated and the bed uncomfortable. The only positive element for this hotel was the sun deck, which also has a swimming pool area for residents which partially overlooks the square in front of the cathedral. The cost of anything while using the sun deck is too high. Best to got outside and visit the many nearby places which are cheaper and provide great service and food/drink. Breakfast choice was okay but the proceedings seemed chaotic with no staff directing residents where to sit etc. Sevilla is fantastic, unfortunately this hotel did not enhance the experience.
