      Historical Traveler Reviews Vincci La Rabida Hotel Seville



      Booked a standard room based on this web site reviews. The reception desk staff we first dealt with was aloof and unfriendly.We were given a basement room. Musty and very cold looking out on to a wall. We went back and complained and they asked us to take a seat while they sorted another room out. Told it would take 30 minutes and they would send us a waitress for drinks. The waitress turned up 30 minutes later. The room was ready about 10 minutes after this.

      The room was very nice though the bed covers had stains on them. The beds were comfortable and in general very clean rooms. Had breakfast at the hotel which was very pleasant though 29 EUR for two of us. But worth it for the environment.

      Overall not happy with the way we were treated by some of the staff though some were excellent.

      Great location for seeing the sights.

      Vincci La Rabida was fabulous


      The Vincci La Rabida was a fantastic hotel. My wife and I spent two nights there at the end of February 2005. The hotel is on a quiet side street, less than three blocks from the Giralda & Cathedral in one direction, and the Maestranza bullring and museum in the other. The lobby is gorgeous, and the rooms were clean, modern and spacious. We were on the 3d floor with a view of the Giralda. The only drawback was that the shower only had a 1/2 door, so it was a little diffcult to keep the rest of the bathroom dry when showering. However, the hotel was simply fantastic. The 5th floor roof deck is beautiful, with an even more commanding view of the Giralda (again, the City's preeminent landmark), and a hot tub as well as bar and food service. The room was $125 USD per night through Expedia. I will definitiely stay here again upon return.

      Great stay at Vincci La Rabida


      We stayed at this hotel for a week-end for a first visit of this beautiful city,

      First of all, you can't find better location : close to the main attractions of the city but in a very quiet street that allows you to rest.

      We enjoyed our stay from start to the end.

      We received a room with a bathroom (huge bathtub) and big terrace with view on the Cathedral.

      We had our breakfast there every morning :)

      The only negative point would be the room-service : not very efficient and messed-up 2 times with our room number.

      I would DEFINITELY stay there again !!!!!!!!!

      PS:Go on the the rooftop terrace (5th floor) where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Cathedral and there's a bar and a jacuzzi :)

      Will never stay there again...


      Stayed jan. 2005. We firstly arrived at 2pm and were told the room was not ready.Went back 3 hours later and told the room was still not available... finally was given a room that was in the basement, which access to was up one elevator then 50metre walk then down another elevator...

      The walls were paper thin, noises kept us awake most of the night...

      The room was small and the bathroom was cramped...

      Perfect winter break


      Lovely hotel, perfectly situated. Rooms are small but beautifully decorated and furnished. Bathrooms are great. Highly recommended.

      Location is great, BUT.....


      We spent three nights at this hotel in early January 2005. The location was perfectly adequate. Our room was up one elevator then down another into what almost seemed like a basement. The room was small. The bathroom was nice, but the floor had excess hair from the previous occupant. The included breakfast was more than acceptable.

      This is close to paradise


      The La Rabida was renovated in April 2003 and is an incredible hotel with an unbeatable location. Short walk to cathedral, alcazar etc. In fact, you can walk everything. The hotel has a beautiful interior, with 2 patios. It is an old palace, simply marvellous. The price mentioned here is not correct. It is a 4-star-hotel and we paid around EUR 150 per night without breakfast. But it is worth it. The room was very quiet and spacious with modern, but spanish decoration. Very comfortable bed- you can even choose your pillow. And there is a bar with sundeck and whirlpool on top of the hotel with excellent view of the city and the cathedral "La Giralda". WeŽll definitely be back.

      Charming, with an unbeatable location


      We were booked into the La Rabida over New Years when our first-choice hotel fell through; frankly, I didn't expect much. However, it proved to be a charming hotel in an unbeatable location -- it was far better situated, in fact, than the first hotel we'd considered, and the beauty and service of it were excellent. It consists of two refurbished buildings -- one with interior terraces, the other overlooking a lovely courtyard with a fountain that's apparently an outdoor bar in warm weather. The public spaces are gorgeous, with an Adalusian courtyard, an opulent little restaurant/breakfast room, and a rooftop pool and bar terrace with a terrific view of the cathedral. The rooms themselves vary in size and decor; since we'd wanted something quiet, ours was very small, tucked away in the second building at the end of the hall.

      But the bathroom was huge, modern, and luxurious, with a jaccuzi that could seat four! The beds were excellent, with a choice of pillows, and the room had all the amenities of any 4-star hotel. Best yet was the service. We arrived the morning of New Years Eve and the staff bent over backwards to get us dinner reservations and then, the next day, hard-to-get Flamenco tickets. I am a terrible sleeper and insane on the subject of noise, but I slept well there all three nights; as Spainish hotels go, it was tranquil. However, one note of caution for other light-sleepers like myself; because of the marble floors and the interior hallways, we could hear all the hotel activity echoing through the halls. The first building, with its open, interior hallways above the reception, is noisier than the second building. When the courtyard's in use, the second building might be a noisier place in the warm seasons, too. However, this is due to the local architecture, not the hotel or its staff. The fact that I've taken the time to write such a verbose review is a testiment to how much I enjoyed and appreciated the hotel and its staff.

      Unreliable La Rabida


      I had reserved a room from Hotel Vincci la Rabida, for a stay of six days, in September 2003. They said it was very important to fax my credit card details to guarantee the reservation, otherwise it would be automatically canceled within 24h. I did, and asked them to confirm my reservation. No reply of any kind. Well, after a couple of days I called them and asked them to send me the confirmation. Okay, okay they said and asked for my tel.number. ( By the way, the person on the phone did not even speak English, but asked me to speak Spanish or French. And it's supposed to be a 4-star hotel.) After two days I sent them an e-mail and once again asked them to confirm. No answer. Next day I sent an e-mail to vincci hoteles central de reservas, and ask if there was a problem with my reservation and if I should cancel and find another hotel. I had the airline tickets issued already and getting a hotel room was essential. Next day I sent the cancellation. Now, two weeks after my trip, still no answer. Remains to be seen if they charged the first night, despite of the cancellation. Disappointing. Next time I will stay at Hotel Colon, as usually. The Melia Colon may not be the most atmospheric hotel, but has a great location, spacious rooms and excellent breakfast.

      Of course, the matador and his team of assistants are well trained in the skill and seem able to dodge the bull with ease though undoubtedly this is a skill ******** and requiring incredible athleticism, split-second timing and possibly crazed-bravery.

Everyone had full bellies so it seemed like the best idea was to head back to the cabin and forego any extra curricular activities for the night given that Lisbon was our next stop. That might be good enough for the old people, but I just had to go to the Casino to see what was shakin. After a little roulette, blackjack and a ...

      Was a good, full day in Sevilla. Overall, including my little navigational diversion to the park, we put in 7.7 miles on foot. Molly probably put another 4 in on top of that with her morning run, and Anna maybe a few miles less since she rode much of the way on my shoulders. Sevilla was a good stop and it was nice to have a few days in one place. Also great having a little kitchen and being able to cook ...

      Even though I enjoyed my day in Cordoba, I couldn't WAIT to get back to Sevilla.

      Random notes:
      Ensaladilla Rusa or Russian Salad sounds exotic, but, it's only potato salad.
