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.

... both a cheerful and a gritty atmosphere at the same time, with people relaxing and interacting in the main plaza. But this is still San Juan, so I’ve got to continue on up the road a little ways to my next suburb. As soon as I reach it, I take a generic little video clip before darkness sets in completely… Now I can relax and take my time explore the town. This suburb is more middle/upper class with rows of identical villas and tree lined boulevards. Up ...
... is a cook who makes amazing crepes and waffles if you want them. He also does a three course meal in the evening with beer, wine, sangria or soft drink included for 10 euro! It smelled fantastic yesterday but I haven't tried it yet as too busy sampling tapas. In the small square (Plaza du Alfalfa, no joke haha) at the end of the street is one of the most popular tapas places in Seville. Filled mainly with locals and always a wait for ...
... I laugh, I lived on 30th and Alberta!I asked what he did for work. He said he worked for a firm; I didn't recognize the name. He said he most recently worked at Regence.
Me: No way! I worked there for 7.5 years!
We both worked at Regence at the same time (him for 1.5 years). For those of you who knew Kole Krieger, it was him!
Now, just today, I was on ...
... a note to come back to source food for our meals.
Meandering through the laneways and streets we came across a cool little place offering some vegetarian options for lunch! Amazing how simple salads become so incredibly appealing whilst traveling; this one went beyond your typical lettuce, tomato and onion of Spain. The aubergines in mint, vinegar, garlic and balsamic were an interesting side.
We spent some time weaving through the Barrio de Santa Cruz, the old ...
