    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.

    ... all Moorish palaces are actually created using plaster moulds.

    As with the Alhambra there is lots of water used in the patio and garden areas, numerous garden and patio areas, lots of decoration (and colour which was faded or gone) and lots of rooms.

    After visiting the palace we wandered around the Jewish quarter. Basically we got lost in the narrow, but cool (in both meanings of the word), streets. It was a great area to get ...

I should have paid for a bit more expensive, more experienced show with matadores en un corrida. Though I can say the experience was inolvidable, or unforgettable. And the novilleros were pretty good looking, actually, all Spanish people are really beautiful, ...

    ... of Sevilla as well as the makings of the structure itself. Made of wooden pieces arranged in a grid formation with organic, smooth, rounded edges, it is definitely something to marvel about. Walking around the top of the structure on a weaving staircase, I was able to get some great shots of both the structures unique patterns as well as the cityscape in the distance.

    ... big cameras in their hands). Finally understood the concept of Siesta. As I found out later I actually missed Seville's hottest days, when there is 50 degrees or more in the sun. I was lucky and had only 43 that day. After impressing the owner of the hoestel by easily beating out her Tortilla (in this case Tortilla is scrambled eggs with potatoes, veggies and maybe some meat) for late lunch, I saw Josh again, a photographer from England, who ...
