A bit of excitement on the train from Granada to Sevilla. The train was chugging along and then it came to stop, to the riders, for no apparent reason. Passengers started craning their necks and out towards the back of the train, there was a car, that had been struck by the train. We could see this pretty well because we were rounding a bend and …
From Lisbon to Seville we took a rather unpleasant trip via overnight bus. The bus was not the newest and seemed to stop about every hour in order to horde more and more people onto it, until it was jam packed, even thinking about sleep for the 7 hour trip from 9 pm to 5 am in the morning (Spanish time) would not work. In early morning hours still …
Operation: See as much of Spain as you can in 1 week began Saturday with Mom. Turns out you can cover a lot more ground once you've dumped your two large suitcases and downsized to a simple backpack. After a flight from Vigo to Madrid, two metro lines from the airport to the train station, and a 4 hour train ride, we arrived in Seville. It’s …
... try some. It was good.
On Sunday morning we had a leisurely breakfast and enjoyed fresh milk in our coffees for the first time in weeks (but it felt like months!). We then headed back into central Seville to do some sightseeing during the daylight. First we walked along the riverfront to the Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold) built by the Moors as a defensive lookout in 1220. Slightly further along the river was ...
... production. The oil we have had has been delicious, very green. In the more fertile parts wheat and sunflowers are growing. Most of the country is wall to wall farming with no fences or trees growing anywhere in paddocks. Any trees that are growing are usually along the roadside and are usually eucalypts, which are better specimens than many of ours. Oleanders must be a weed too, they are often planted on freeways but appear in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alminar Hotel Seville
Great little hotel
I stayed at this hotel 2 nights with my husband. We really liked this small boutique hotel with a central location on a quiet pedestrian street. The room and bathroom were very nicely decorated and very clean. The staff was very friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel.
This little hotel offers fabulous bang for the buck. Great location: it's a few steps away from the Cathedral on a charming pedestrian-only street. The staff are warm, friendly, and professional.
Room 32 was definitely the best. The terrace was lovely and caught the sun- even in February. The hotel is clean and well presented and staff were friendly and helpful. It was great having tea and coffee available all day. English daily newspapers were also available in the breakfast area. Position was very good with easy access to the main areas and to restaurants etc. Would recommend.
We've just returned from a weekend in Seville, where we used the Alminar as our base. What a lovely little place to stay - not grand, but cosy and charming. Our room (No. 23 - the two largest ones, 31 & 32, were already booked) was bigger than expected & had a dual outlook over the pedestrian street on which the hotel is located, and the rooftops towards the Giralda. The room itself was comfortable, modern and spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom. And the hotel's location was fantastic (we felt the medieval alleyway it was on added to the atmosphere, rather than detracted from it - but then we didn't have a car). But what made the Alminar special was the great service from the two receptionists, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Ask them for their restaurant recommendations and you will get anything from a special dinner idea, to a tiny tapas bar which no-one but locals might stumble upon (a challenge for the rusty school Spanish!). Two words of caution: the included breakfast wasn't great, but there are so many cafes within a stone's throw from which to choose that perhaps it doesn't matter, and I would try to book one of the larger rooms away from the ground floor, which may get noisy on weekend evenings. Enjoy your stay in gorgeous Sevilla!
Lovely intimate hotel on superb location.
We stayed twice at the Alminar for a total of 3 nights. The last night at room #32 on the rooftop. Excellent view of the cathedral and semi-private terrace. Even mid-january warm enough to sit outside and enjoy a drink :-)
Hotel Alminar is small and cozy with new and clean rooms and wi-fi internet access in the entire hotel. The staff are very friendly and everything is in walking distance from the hotel. The cathedral is literally only a 100 meters away. The hotel is situated in a tiny street off Calle Alemanes and cannot be reached by car (you won't need one anyway). Plaza Alfalfa and Calle Sierpes and the main monuments are all within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay there very much and would definitely recommend Hotel Alminar.
For the business or tourist traveler, this is a perfect place to stay. This was the second time I have stayed in Sevilla.
My partner and I stayed in the Hotel Alminar for four nights in May and had a wonderful time. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. We stayed in the terraced bedrooms on the top floor and could see the Cathedral from our room. For location this hotel was superb, we were right beside the main tourist sights and just down the road from the shopping streets. Breakfast was simple but ample and we could take it upstairs every morning to eat on the terrace. I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody going to Seville and would definitely go back.
Great Location, Incredible Service
I very much liked the hotel. The attendants were a lot of fun, very helpful, and added to the experience. There was much construction around the hotel and was a bit noisey. The rooms were very beautifully appointed and modern. Great stay.
Liked this Hotel
This hotel is new, clean and spiffy. The location is excellent--a short walk from the Cathedral, restaurants and shops on a quiet street. Our room had a patio which was quite enjoyable, and the room size was good for Europe. Room equipped with a TV and a little stero. Plenty of room for suitcases, etc. English speaking staff very helpful. Breakfast is limited to juice, coffe and croissants. The cab driver found the street; however, you can't drive down the street (walking only). Very short distance to walk though and not a problem for us.
Very Nice Hotel - Helpful Staff
My wife and myself were very pleased with our stay at the Hotel Alimar. The English speaking staff was extremely helpful in giving advice, and making reservations to a local Flamenco show. The hotel is located on a pedestrian walk a few store fronts away from the road, so if you have a car it may be a bit of a nuisance. The room rate was good for this class of hotel in Seville. The room was very nice - clean, modern shower/bath and air conditoned. It was a nice touch that the initial water and soda supply provided in the mini bar were free. The breakfast was included but was pretty basic.
The hotel is in an excellent location for sightseeing. It is just a 2 minute walk to the Cathedral. It costs about 7 Euro's for a taxi to the train station.
