Travel Blogs from Seville
I was not expecting the South of Spain to be as beautiful as my friends from Spain had previously told me. I said oh I love Madrid! It's amazing! That may be true but once I explored a few cities in Andulusia, it was my new favorite region in Spain.
On the first day of exploring, I remember seeing Plaza de Espaņa and the Golden Tower. On …
Our tour guide meets us in the lobby and off we go for a tour of the city. Specifically the Cathedral and the Alcazar. Now you always roll the dice with guides. The one we had at the Alhambra was very knowledgeable and teacher-like. So much so that he was scolding people that were touching the mosaics on the wall. This guy knew what he was talking …
A mid-day train ride brings us to Seville. This means we have time for a leisurely breakfast and some early morning souvenir shopping.First order of business is to ask about laundry. Great, there is a self serve place not to far from the hotel. Not so great, we got there at 2:05 and they are closed from 2pm until 4pm. (Is it any wonder there …
... hotel so a couple of us decided to go out for a drink. We asked Miguel (our tour guide) if he wanted to come, which he did so he was able to take to a local bar. There is no way we would have found it on our own with these streets – we would have got lost for sure. Even if we had managed to find it, we wouldn’t have gone it because it sure didn’t look like a bar. It resembled a shrine or something with statues and pictures of Jesus and Mary ...
... old, it has wooden floors (where most are marble or ceramic in other households), which does keep the house a little warmer, and we also have heated showers and heaters in each separate room of the house (which is most likely a luxury to be thankful for).
Today we went on a tour of the city with people from our program. In groups of ten we spread out to gain a little bit more bearings of the area as well as to know some of the more popular areas. We walked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Becquer Seville
Average for a 4* hotel.Staff was very friendly. Room was average sized, with a nice marble bathroom. Location was great, close to the cathedral, alcazaba, and barrio Santa Cruz.My only complaint was that the air freshner used by the cleaning crew smelled like cheap perfume and it got annoying after a while.
I selected this hotel based on the reviews and comments from others and I was not disappointed. It is a nice hotel with a great location. The only problems were (1) room was very small and (2) never did figure out when the restaurant next door actually served the tapas which they advertised. I'm not sure if the other reviewers had problems with how to pronounce this hotel but my taxi driver was very clear that the correct pronunciation was the Bec-key. Even though I was able to find someone who understood English, I was definitely glad that I had brushed up on my Spanish (especially, true when you go outside of the hotel and wonder around Seville itself).
Good location hotel was good
Excellent location and staff was friendly. Parking available at 10Euros a night, which you can't avoid. No breakfast. We had 2 single beds which were about 5 feet apart from each other. We had a garden view with no balcony, which was not nice.
Excellent hotel in an excellent location! I chose this hotel from the reviews on tripadvisor and I must say this was a great experience. Ask for a new room to stay in. They remodeled not too long ago. Our room had 3 balconies, a sitting area, and an amazing bathroom with a jacuzzi and all for 124 Euros per night.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. If you stay here or even decide not too, you must go to the restaurant right next door to the hotel. The tapas were amazing! They were not your typical tapas. They had an upscale eclectic twist on all of the basics. It is a must!
We just loved this hotel and it's location. The rooms which had been remodeled were lovely and spacious and had everything you could ask for. The front staff were great and anticipated our every need. We had encountered a large group of teenagers on our floor, when asked to move to a quieter floor, they changed our room without question or hesitation. They were very knowledgeable with the local interests of the city and can direct you or help with reservations without any problems.
The restaurant food was very good but a little expensive. The bar/cafe next door which is affiliated with the hotel is wonderful. They serve anything from coffee and pastry to drinks and tapas. Very good and nice price.
We would definitely return to this hotel and give it a four star rating.
We stayed in Hotel Becquer from April 20-25, 2003 and were very pleased. The hotel is in a great location. Within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and Corte Ingles. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Very nice hotel. Stayed there in September 2002. The location was very central and I found the staff to go extremely helpful in getting around the city and with my travel needs. I would try to learn some Spanish as English was not spoken very much by the hotel, however they were very patient as I fumbled through my limited Spanish.
I booked this Hotel on the strength of reviews on this web-site! I was not disappointed! Great location, within walking distance of all the sites; very good rooms and excellent breakfast!
The reception staff could not have been more helpful in assisting me in pre-arranging a transfer from the airport to the Hotel. Worked brilliantly.
I would happily return to this Hotel if visiting Seville again.
Great Overall Hotel
Good location which is easily accessable if driving. They also have small garage to park your car but you need to make "garage reservations" in advance. New section is wonderful! Very modern, rooms with hard wood floors and new marble bathroom with nice amenties. Rooms have large wooden shutters to block out the light & some have little balconies to enjoy the breeze & sun. Shops and restaurants as soon as you step out of the lobby and the upscale shopping district is 10 min. walk. Lovely pastry shops & Corte Ingels dept. store on the walk to Plaza Nueva which is central place for taking the bus to Santa Cruz, Alcazar or Plaza Espana. Staff is very friendly & accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.
Good Deal and Great Location
The Becquer is a good choice if you're looking for moderately-priced lodging in Seville. We stayed here in August 2002 while traveling throughout Andalucia. It's clean, the rooms are a decent size, and the location puts you close to both the nightlife of Calle Betis as well as the Cathedral and other major tourist sites. The hotel staff spoke good English, although we made them endure our Spanish for most of our stay. Amenities are limited, so if you're planning to spend a lot of time at your hotel or in your room, this may not be the place for you, but if you need basic lodging that's not too expensive, I'd consider this one.
