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.

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 …
... found on the internet. Best ever!!! The female dancer was incredible. She danced with so much emotion she brought tears to the eye. The guitar was played with pure raw passion for the art and the singer portrayed a message of great anguish and pain that he needed to overcome. We only got a few words here and there but it didn't matter. The show was great. It was in a small room with two rows of seat surrounding a small stage. We were in the front just left of centre. ...
... I went to a flamenco show and absolutely loved it. We were lead into a dimly lit room and sat around a small stage with four painted chairs placed on it. We could hear the strumming of a guitar and the rythmic foot stamping of the performers practising in the next room. They finally walked onto the stage: a singer, a guitar player, and two dancers. The woman's black hair was slicked back and she wore beautiful ruffled dresses. The man reminded me a bit of ...
... become. Seville failed to deny this logic as the forecast for today is for sunny skies and a top temperature of 28 degrees Celsius.
I woke at approximately 8AM after rather a poor night’s sleep. We then proceeded to breakfast at our local café which was awful and rather expensive for burnt bread and ham. I clumsily tripped over a step, before we checked out of the hotel and set the GPS for a shortish drive to Seville.
... It was time to recover.
Nevertheless, I was still determined to make the very most out of my last day here in Sevilla. I woke up a bit earlier than usual so that I could get to my classroom to review right before the exam. It began on the dot at 9am. It was five pages long and took a little less than two hours to complete. Afterwards, students were gathering in the main lobby of the center making plans to have a small lunch as a celebration. Janae, ...
