... the girls and I decided to check it out. There were probably some good things there, but most of you know I’m not fond of digging through junk to find hidden gems. Throw in the language barrier and I’m probably not going to buy anything, but it was still fun to look. The street (Calle Feria) is closed for the day and various vendors spread out a blanket on the ground and set up their displays. Barbie dolls and other toys might be sitting on the blanket next ...
... 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.
... know and it was so hot by 2.30pm standing in the square surrounded by stone with all the reflected heat, I thought I would faint. We were in need of a good tinto de verano,so we headed to the sister restaurant of our fabulous lunch place yesterday which is nearby. We had another serve of their excellent beef and potatoes but only one other dish today, so should be able today in some dinner later.

It is very quiet given the number of people around. The only sound we hear is the hooves of the horses clopping over the cobblestones. After settling into the suite, we decided to go ...

2 hours under the sun and the heat was quite tiring despite the fact that it went so quickly with our very entertaining guide. After the tour, we decided to go to the tapas place Mhedi had recommended. Us and 3 other people from the tour (a girl from US, a girl from UK, and a guy from ...

A very good hotel
Had a very nice stay at this hotel. 10 minutes by bus to centre of city - E1 for the ticket. Super breakfast, good room. Did not use gym or pool as we were only there for 2 nights and out a lot. Room had a safe - read a review that said there was no room safe but we had one and found it useful. Also well stocked min bar. Helpful and friendly staff. Would definitely use again.
Mary from Scotland
just back from a stay in this hotel which I would recommend very highly. The staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke good english. The breakfast buffet was excellant. We were driving and the information given in the hotel description stated that there was ample parking payable directly to the hotel. This was not the case and we were directed to the public parking next door which was payable at an hourly rate with a maximum of 14 euros a day. There is off road paking in the street if you can find a space which is free but not secure. We pointed this out at reception and our information was photocopied to be shown to the manager and we were assured this would be changed as it is misleading and not accurate. The hotel is not central and whilst it is possible to walk, the local bus service is very frequentand will take you straight to the centre. We would definately stay here again.
Hello, everyone I am from queens, ny on July 31, 2004, me and my boyfriend
Stayed here in August 2003. What a great hotel. Stay in many 5 * hotels through work but this beats them hands-down. Staff were attentive without being intrusive, great on-site bar and restaurant and a fabulous pool and sun deck. Hotel was spotless and we had a great room overlooking the pool area. Seville is a beautiful city and this hotel was the icing on the cake...
Hopefully I will return to Seville and look forward to staying here again
Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Not in the center of the attractions but it's a small town and an easy and staff walk. Beds weren't too great. Modern and clean - close to a shopping center and restaurants if you don't want to go too far for food. Enjoyed the experience!
Off the Beaten Track, but a great spot!
Hotel was beautiful and clean and staff was very friendly and spoke English very well. Close to the airport and only a 15 minute bus ride from the major attractions. And across the street from the Santa Justa station. Highly recommend it!
Not for me
Having just come back from the Occidental, I would recommend for you to stay elsewhere. While not expensice (about 100 Euro), this feels like a standard Holiday Inn. Although clean, the decor is functional and not very inviting. No room safe and mediocre service. The location is pretty good but if you go make sure your room as far as possible away from the function rooms since the current Christmas party made my nights less than enjoyable.
