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.

Travel Blogs from Seville
Neither of us knew much about Seville or what we should see here apart from the Catherdral and the Alcazar, so thought the hop-on/hop-off bus would be a good option. We did a full lap of the circuit to get a decent overview before deciding what to do. We jumped off and walked though the ................ gardens to the Plaza de Espana, and amazing …

Throughout the gardens, most of the plants are very familiar, most of which we grow but it is the simplicity and repetition of plantings in courtyards that make them so appealing, necessary in this hot climate.

This has happened often throughout Spain where the Christians have come and imposed ...

Our hotel in Seville is not as advertised, but we will have to make do. We are here for two nights. Last night we wondered around the area looking for drinks and a bite. The streets are narrow and the buildings are several ...
