Mai_guchi stayed here on Jan 18, 2014 during their trip titled: Mai_guchi's Great Adventure.
This past weekend my program took us to Seville and Cordoba. It was hot: 100 degrees both days, and humid. We were accompanied by Jose, our tour guide from Granada, of "Sexy Sexy Boom." We saw lots of interesting things, but we walked way too much and I was happy to get back to Granada, with narrow, shady streets and lots of wind.< …
Last stop in Spain before we head to Portugal is Seville. We had 2 nights here staying in the city to enjoy the atmosphere and more sangria and tapas!
Today is incredibly hot – about 37 degrees. We headed off to look a the cathedral - the 3rd largest cathedral in the world – and Alcazar (the royal palace). …
Hey all, We arrived in Sevilla a few days ago. I havent been feeling well, but I managed to get a good look at the city the first day. We went to the Alcazar, an old mosque that was turned into a palace for the royal family of spain. We also went to the bullring. No more bullfights this year, but we may get to see one in Madrid...cant wait! We go …
... restaurant for dinner and then the flamenco place and then the bar and then finally the club. Seville is a town too small with a lot of narrow streets which makes using public transportation very difficult. At the same time it is big enough that walking everywhere can be a burden at times. While it may sound strange I missed Madrid and I appreciated it more while I was in Seville. In a way, Madrid has become another of my many homes.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Don Paco Seville
Convenient hotel, shame about the food
Busy hotel taking in coach tours, rooms on the small side, good though small pool on the roof and sunbathing area with views of Seville through a forest of TV aerials. 15 to 20 mins walk through narrow alleys to the centre, depending on whether you get lost. The singing bartender next door was AWOL during our stay. The food was a big disappointment. Large buffet dining room, the vegetables and potatoes for the main course were tinned and stewed, the dessert tinned pineapple and tinned mandarin oranges. Pathetic! There's a big supermarket almost next door - go there if you want anything containing vitamins, or dine out.
Some of our group had their sleep wrecked by some very noisy, selfish US teenagers in the same corridor.
Roof pool and terrace
A perfectly good comfortable modern hotel. Much used by large tourist groups so can be a bit of a scrum. Don't expect to be cosetted or much waited on. The roof-top terrace with a fair-sized pool and super views is a real plus and is in the process of being extended.
Good, comfortable and well situated city hotel.
Comfortable, good service and well situated 15 mins from Cathederal. Breakfast good and plentiful, didn't dine in as many good restaurants near by, must try San Marco restaurant on Cuna. Views over city from roof terrace which was ideal for pool or sun loungers or just sitting at tables in shade. Front rooms overlook busy local little "square" with play area ideal for people watching and not too noisy at night.
Pillows hard as with most hotels -I pack my own, well worth it.
Unexciting but good value
The Don Paco is certainly not a sexy hotel. But it is clean, within easy walking distance to major sights and -- as a single woman traveller -- I always felt safe both in the hotel and its neighbourhood.
When I arrived in my room, there was water all over the bathroom floor. Called down to the front desk and the matter was resolved within 15 minutes: a handy man came to my room and fixed the leak. During Santa Semana the room cost 150 Euros/night, and a week later it cost 70 Euros. The rooms are unexciting and fairly small, but I used the hotel to sleep and wash; if that's what you're looking for, this hotel is good value.
The Don Paco was a very nice surprise. I traveled there with my students. their parents and my husband. The location was very nice. We could walk throught the barrio de Santa Cruz or cut along Calle Sierpes to get to the heart of the city. Our room was very clean and everything was in good shape. There was a comfortable lobby where we often sat and had drinks and snacks. It seemed that other hotel guests enjoyed the lobby also.
The Hotel Don Paco located near a small park, is close to the historic sttreets of Seville. It has been newly decorated and the rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a beautiful pool and patio on the roof . Food is served buffet style, with a large variety to choose from.
The building was good but we were less sure about the food. We stayed at Don Paco in March 2003. Check-in staff were very good, as were most of the people we met during our stay. The building was generally fine and spacious, particularly the bar -lounge area - but the food seemed tuned to the coach tours that often stayed for one or two nights.
Basic but clean
Stayed here for a few nights in June 2003. It's a fairly basic hotel which is reasonably located (about 15 minutes walk from the cathedral) and has a nice, spacious lounge/bar area. Rooms are clean but not very large. My room had no light near the bath which made taking a bath an interesting experience! The restaurant is reasonable with a good choice for breakfast (one tip - don't use the coffee machine nearest the entrance to the restaurant - it's undrinkable)
Simple yet functional; very clean; friendly and very helpful staff- overall, a pleasant stay for not a lot of money (or euros)!
