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 …
The bus ride from Faro to Seville was very scenic, passing through olive and orange groves along the way. The guy at the bus station when I arrived said I could walk to my accommodation, no problemo.....well what a delusion that turned out to be! Eventually gave in and caught a taxi and 15 minutes an 5 euros later he eventually found the street which was so tiny he couldn't drive down it. I NEVER in a million years would have found it ...
... we head home. I just hate these short holidays. The Eurodam has been a great hotel for us – it’s got everything we need to be comfortable and the balcony makes it a great spot in the afternoon to put your feet up and watch the world go by.
Seville – you’ll just have to wait for another time to be explored – sorry we missed you! Next stop Lisbon and a one-hour time change.
Headed next door to the Alcazar palace. Wow! The tile in this building was incredible! The place is completely open - no furniture or artifacts. It felt like walking around a castle in Zelda. The gardens were beautifully manicured with peacocks freely roaming and pecking around. Got lost in the garden labyrinth for a little while and then headed out.

I'm up at sunrise and I sneak out with my camera and, for only the third time, my tripod to get a few shots of Arcos in the early morning light.
Short digression on photography. I don't shoot much with a tripod, even when I'm home and have my nice sturdy one handy. I use it for portrait sessions when I have the studio lighting set up, but mostly I find I prefer shooting hand held. The Canon glass with Image Stabilization certainly helps, and on that system I ...
