Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alcantara Seville
Hotel Alcantara is a steal at 70 euros per night. My husband and I stayed here for one night in January and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is basic, but clean. Great for the tourists who only sleep in their rooms. Centrally located and the staff was very friendly and spoke English. We would definately stay here again.
Excellent location, clean and spacious
I stayed here for 3 nights in late November 2004. My preferences are clean, safe, central, simple (tv & en suite not required) & quiet accommodations. The location was EXCELLENT - on a pedestrian street in the heart of the Santa Cruz area - a short walk to the Cathedral, Palace and many reasonably priced restaurants.
The room was very clean, the beds were made up daily and towels (both hand and American sized & thickness bath) were changed daily.
The room was spacious for Europe - equal to the size of an American hotel/motel room. There was a closet, 2 nightstands and desk included. The en suite had ample hot water at all times and great water pressure in the shower (full sized/length American shower).
The room was on the 3rd floor and interior of the building overlooking the courtyard with double glazed windows. There was absolutely no street noise. There was noise from within the hotel as I could hear noise from the adjoining rooms...doors being unlocked, the phone ring and (moderate/loud) conversations.
The lobby and courtyard had a few tables with chairs to comfortably lounge. There was even a bookshelf with travel guides and books in English.
The desk staff spoke little to no English (I speak some Spanish) and were friendly and helpful. Even offered to ring a cab for our departure. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Excellent Value & Location
For 78 EUR (admittedly off-peak season) in the winding maze of Seville's intensely charming Barrio Santa Cruz, just a few blocks away from the Cathedral & Alcazar, you can't go wrong with this place. The hotel is relatively new and quite clean, the staff was very friendly, the rooms, though simply furnished, were comfortable and sufficiently spacious in my opinion. Bathroom was nice, and A/C worked great (a blessing in Seville in August, trust me)! As others have mentioned, you can roll out of bed from after your siesta to check out a Flamenco show at Casa de la Memoria next door. Highly recommended.
Simply furnished , friendly and great location
We stayed here in late March 2003. Tucked away in the Barrio Santa Cruz, next to a small flamenco joint, the location is fantastic. The rooms are moderately large, bringht and clean, with a simple, modern touch. The staff were extremely helful and spoke English well. Breakfast was not included, but there were plenty of cafes around.
Excellent location, Clean room
We stayed here two nights in April 2004. The room was clean; the bathroom was clean and a bit small. Location is excellent, short walk to the Cathedral.
5 Star Location
A quiet oasis within the Barrio Santa Cruz, located on a walking street about 5-10 minutes from the Cathedral and Alcazar. Simple, clean and modern rooms.

... time together. We went out to meals (she
showed me all of the great local spots) and she even let me stay with
her after I checked out of the hostel. I have stayed longer than
planned in almost every city I've visited :) We cooked dinner together
last night; it was so much fun!! Besides the Thanksgiving dinner I
cooked, I haven't cooked a full meal in weeks! It was so wonderful being
in a warm, cozy home. Michelle and I had so much in common ...
... so that we’d be able to find our way back to the hotel after our tour of the Cathedral. I had forgotten my GPS but decided to be “safe” by using the Find My Car app in my iPhone, setting the hotel as the location of my “car”.
When we arrived at the Cathedral, I bought a ticket and went inside to have a look. This is the largest Gothic and third largest Cathedral in in the world, second only to St. ...
... 2, no acceptations. So with that we went out into what was surprising freeing, rainy weather, and lugged our backpacks to some random café where we sat with no energy for several hours until our room was available. Dirty, tired, and tinged with bad news from a friend from home, none of us wanted any of it. I was ready to hop and form of transport back to Seville and almost wrote off Barcelona based on Friday alone. But after some rest and a shower we made our way ...
... the summer, I'd say this place would cost a small fortune! The shower here Paul reckons is bigger than some of the rooms we have stayed in! Undeterred by the weather, we head out into Seville. Here we are again, another foreign town, catching buses and wandering around! We find the old part of town and it is lovely despite the rain. There are still quite a lot of people out and about even though the rain hasn't really stopped, they just all have ...
5th July Seville is living up to its hot weather and we continue to see the sites. First up today was the Plaza de Torres (Bull Ring) which is just around the corner from where we are staying. They run 40 minute tours of the place including the museum. The ring itself isn't that interesting – there are 5 gates, in sequence for (a) Toreador and team (b) Bull In (alive), (c) Hospital, (d) McDonalds – at least, that’s where ...
