So Seville is famous for their Flamenco music and dancing. There is this small bar right around the corner from our house that's a famous must-see Flamenco bar... The ladies from our school told us we had to go check this out... they warned us that the owner is "a lot to handle".
So I was expecting to see dancing, young good looking dancers, right? We get there, there are a ton of like wooden chairs set up in rows, and we were told not to go up to the bar, ...

Speaking of Spanish, I spent the past weekend on another school excursion where the guide only spoke Spanish. I paid much more attention this time than last time, and realized I can pick up on so much more than I ever thought possible. We spent the weekend in Andalucia, which is like a southern province of Spain. Here they speak with the theta in place of c’s or ...
Today's Adventure - Seville. We got a slow start today. We left the lodge at about 09:30. We arrived in old town Seville at about 11:00.
We all wanted a coffee (and restroom) so we searched for a cafe. We settled on Cafeteria Coliseo. We each had a coffee. Leslie had also ordered us a pastry while I was off looking for an ATM. When I returned I found we had each received a cake, Rascon de Reyes. This is a ...

Just Had Five Fantastic Nights
Stayed at this hotel betwen 4th-9th august 2005 to celebrate wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke good english. They placed champagne, card and chocs in room when they knew it was our anniversary compliments of management.
Can recommend this hotel with confidence. It has great location and just across road from Santa Justa railway station enabling access to all major cities and coastal areas in spain.
Facing hotel just over the road is a fantastic tapas bar (next to burger king) which is very cheap. Try "gambas choco y langostinos" prawns in meatballs which costs about £1.20.
From hotel turn right and approx 100 yards is large shopping mall called "El Cortes De Inglas and facing that you catch the number 21 bus into seville centre for 1 Euro.
Hotel has good sized pool which was most welcome during hot summer months. Temperatures got up to 49 degrees whilst we were there.
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
Excellant hotel but be aware of parking.
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.
Most Wonderful Hotel, Beautiful
Hello, everyone I am from queens, ny on July 31, 2004, me and my boyfriend
also from ny, came to madrid, spain, on august 2nd we did our own tour guide and
took the eurorail over to Seville, never been there before, we got off at San Juana.
we went upstairs to explore no idea where we would be staying. and "what a beautiful sight right across the san juana train station is the beautiful hotel occident, most convient, we were so taken at its friendly looks, we walked up to the desk in the lobby it was so pretty, the receptionist were pleasant spoke english well and very very helpful,
we got a room just like that for E70 or 75's per night, our room was #132, clean, big
fully stacked refridgerators mini bar, beautiful big bathroom lots of hot water, A/C continental breadfast, and bus stop 1 1/2 blocks up (the bus is sometimes red)
takes you right to shopping areas and major sightseeing areas, catherals, forums
the nights are so beautiful. (the bus at the time were .90euros for the ride or E 1.)stops running at 11pm.
I would stay here again and again, Oh and did I forget to tell you guys that there
is a gym and a pool in the back of the hotel well there's one. I we're going to Rome,
Italy in April 2005, hope someone can give us helpful hints. After Serville, we hopped Over to barcelona, and did this adventure with hotels all over again Hotel Turin in,
Barcelona, right off Las Ramblas. Wonderful and affordable. Hala Back at me.
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.
