... 8230; free sangria is the best
sangria. We decided that after the flamenco we wanted to go to a disco, so we
googled it on Sebs phone and went on a quest to find ‘discoteca boss’. It was
great because it was in the direction of our apartment. We walked along the
river and in the process of finding the disco we bar hopped to all these small
bars that offered cheap chupitos and a lively atmosphere. After bar hopping for
a few hours we figured out ...
... we went to this little cafe that served sandwiches where we could basically put whatever we wanted on them. Also, they had freshly squeezed orange juice, with, of course, delicious Spanish oranges. The waitress at the restaurant thought I was Australian because of the accent I had when I was speaking Spanish with her, which I thought was hilarious.
Thankfully we got to the bus station when we did because the bus we had planned on taking was sold out ...
Seville, a Wonderful Surprise
Dianne and I had not considered Sevilla a “must-see” place. It was, after all, a large city across the border from Portugal in Espana. Some large cities, like Lisbon, however, were directly on our itinerary, and we needed some time there--we said--to recover from jet lag. (It did not work out quite that way as you can read from our Lisbon blog post) We spent four days there, nevertheless, even though seeing big cities was ...
... only charged us one days breakfast!......
The bus leaves for Seville at 11 am. At the bus terminals in Morocco, our bags were weighed, tagged and put on the bus. Here in La Linea, you just throw them in the compartment yourself. Seville, here we come!
Interestingly , we note two young boys who also board the bus who look a little 'dodgy'. Are we just paranoid, given our pick pocket experience?...
All the buses we have travelled on have been of a ...
... morning - again along the river and across the Roman bridge. We made a tactical error though by sightseeing on the Saturday and planning to shop on the Sunday - only to find no shops open!! This resulted in more pool time which was very pleasant and less expensive too.We happily headed off on the train to Barcelona on the Monday and had a hotel bang smack in the middle of everything. We shopped a bit, we queued to get into the Gaudi Cathedral and were blown away by it, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Inglaterra Seville
Stayed at the Inglaterra over New Year 2003. The hotel is in a great central location, the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was facing the Plaza Nueva (noisy, but colourful) but was not 4 star standard. It was certainly in need of a re-furb, very tired furniture and carpets. However, the bathroom was fine. This did not put us off too much as we got a good deal on B&B. Seville is a great place so you need not spend too much time in the hotel.
Not to be recommended
Stayed for four nights over the New Year 2003/4.
Although an extremely convenient location there are inherent problems at this hotel - rooms that have bad sewage smells, no room service, no lounge service, receptionists not helpful and rooms in need of a refurb.
Definately not worthy of f stars!
Christmas at Inglaterra
Just got back from a romp through Granada, Seville and Madrid. Hotel Inglaterra is great. Very helpful staff, even over Christmas! Rooms were very nice and have an old world feel/charm to them. Travelled with my Mom and pregnant wife and we left another hotel to stay at Inglaterra. Glad we did! I'd go back. Location is great!
Yes....a fine place to stay!!
really enjoyed my stay here...location was excellent....great cvigar humidor....very clean..staff was formal, efficient, slightly aloof, but very professional.loved the antique book sale on plaza nueva, and the shopping closeby was outstanding!!!this place actually felt like home to me during my stay in sevilla...food was very good for a restaurant hotel.i'd stay here again.
Don't stay here
We were checked in by the unfriendliest, unhelpful, rudeness receptionist we have ever come across. The main reason for NOT staying at this hotel is the extremely foul smelling bathroom,which is due to an internal drainage problem it is indescribable. The rooms are comfortable enough if a little shabby, although the air conditioning is controlled by the hotel by date rather than temperature, so a very hot sleepless night occurred despite it being early November. That said the location of the hotel is excellent, a few minutes walk away from the cathedral. In general it is not worthy of 4 star status.
Stately and traditional
A wonderfully located, older, wood paneled hotel where we were given a spacious suite overlooking the Plaza Neuva, which was quiet to boot. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Only drawback was that the rooms were a bit on the worn side, as if they hadn't had a renovation for quite a while.
VERY RUDE STAFF !
Be warned, a double room at this hotel is what everywhere else refers to as a twin room. We found the staff very rude and quite willing to have an argument. There are plenty of hotels in Seville, dont bother with this one, they have no idea of service!!
Good stay at Inglaterra
We only stayed at Inglaterra Hotel for one evening in April 2003 as we were traveling to Madrid the next day. The hotel is in a great location within walking distance to the cathedral, shopping, and restaurants.
Our room was good and the staff was friendly and helpful.
Great to place during the Holy Week processions (Semana Santa). Only two short blocks from the cathedral, near lots of shopping and within walking distance of everything in the city.
Highly recommended and reasonably priced.
One of the greatest hotels in Spain that we stayed at by far. Wonderful hospitality and a great general feel to the hotel. Very regal with the marbal staircases and puffy leather chairs. A number one choice of ours in Sevilla
