... which ran over budget and behind schedule, and it doesn't really have a very clear reason for existing. It's neat though!
The flamenco dancing was very good and the guitarist was crazy fast. I wasn't as huge a fan of the guy whipping his vest around like a skirt because every time he did so, he snapped his head sideways and sweat flew off of him and onto my face (we were in the front row and my head was right at sweat splatter height). A good performance though!

Had a tiny bit of trouble finding the hotel, but had 3 choices of rooms. Tommy played Goldie Locks to see which had the best air conditioning. We chose the top floor room off the terrace.

It was quite cute. After dinner we went to a bar that would resemble a sports bar in America. They had at least 20 flat screen tvs, all playing soccer channels. They had models of over 20 stadiums a hanging from the walls, and pictures of famous players ...
Today was NO BETTER.
Brody woke up, sat on the couch with a weird look on his face. He started walking around aimlessly and then had "that look" on his face. I dragged him to the sink for the first of many barfs. UGGGGHHHH. The poor guy barfed all day!

Historical Traveler Reviews Petit Palace Santa Cruz Seville
this hotel location is centrally located and in walking distance to all sights. It is a very modern hotel that is extremely clean and the rooms are spacious. The air conditioning was great (it was 40 degrees outside - so it was needed) and the staff is very helpfull and friendly. I would stay there again without hesitation.
We arrived at the Petit Palace Santa Cruz in August and were delighted by the location. Its located in Barrio Santz Cruz, a lovely neighbourhood of winding cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. Its the historical Jewish quarter of Seville and you can really feel the atmosphere. The hotel has only been open a few months, and everything is brand new. Our deal didnt include breakfast but theres a load of cafes where you can get your morning coffee and breakfast from within easy walking distance.
Industrial-Chic hotel in amazing city
I thought this hotel was fantastic. Other than a slightly chaotic check in procedure our stay here was wonderful. The hotel has the feel of a futuristic palace and is stunningly though subtely decorated. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and have every possible convenience like lcd tvs and a wonderful shower. The location is great and I would highly recommend a stay here. A recent reviewer criticising Seville needs his head examined. It is a romantic, beautiful, historic city with a great nightlife and wonderful food.
Highly Recommended Fantastic Modern and Stylish Hotel
The Petit Palace Santa Cruz is extremely well-located in a less busy part of the Barrio Santa Cruz. It is in a beautiful renovated palace, so it has an old Spanish feel with a very chic and modern renovation.
Our room was very sunny, extremely comfortable and extraordinarily spacious for hotel rooms in Spain, and everything is brand new with an icy-cold AC (very important in Sevilla!). The bathrooms are fantastic. Our room had two lovely balconies facing a church, with floor to ceiling windowed doors leading out to them. The windows are new and keep out virtually all noise from the street, so the room was perfectly quiet.
We paid 84E per night booked online.
We arrived at 11.30am to find our room was not ready, fair enough though as check in is 1pm, so we asked the front desk for a nice place to get some lunch and were told "left", yeah thanks for that then! Returned at 3pm our room was ready but was a queen room, I had reserved a king with two singles, I was told "but you are two" I explained I came to this hotel because they had confirmed the larger room and was quite happy to pay the extra for the confirmed larger room, was told the hotel was fully booked and it was this room or no room! The rate I paid for the smaller room was 95 euro, which was good for the money although this was the rate I could have got from the web site had I wanted a queen room, so although they messed up the booking and I asked for a better rate they said no way!
Old charm with modern facilities
I stayed there during the period of 12-16 May. I know the city very well as I stayed in Sevilla for a whole month some years ago. The area of Santa Cruz is the best area to stay in the city and this hotel is really wonderful in the heart of Santa Cruz with spacious rooms and a precious bath. I just noticed a luck of organising some things like checking in procedures and breakfast time but I guess it's just because they opened in April.
Anyway, Sevilla is a great place itself and it doesn't really matter where to stay but just being there!!!!!
Good City Hotel
Stayed for three nights at Petit Palace Santa Cruz. Great smart hotel which has been modernised to a high standard.
The bedrooms are quite small but plenty big enough for a city break. The bathroom was excellent with big shower with body jets. The rooms were well looked after and clean. Rooms have small plasma screen tvs and the hotel has free internet access in the reception.
The hotel is situated in a great location. Make sure you get a map from reception (the pull out one not the black photo copy!) as it is very easy to get lost.
We had a fantastic weekend.
Petit Palace - Santa Cruz
We just got back (April 2006) and this place was really nice. English speaking staff, brand new everything & far enough from the main square to be quiet, decent size rooms with really nice bathrooms. Beware that it is so new that the taxis don't know where it is. We got dropped off at the Petit Palace Santa Ana by mistake.
