Petit Palace Santa Cruz
Travel Blogs from Seville
Our hostel was located in the Barrio de Santa Cruz, the city's medieval Juderia, so we took our time wandering through the twisting, atmospheric alleys. Our hostel had a fantastic rooftop patio, so we drank wine and worked out there for a while before heading out for a late dinner of tapas (of course). Every tapas bar we passed was raucous and filled to bursting, with streetside tables occupied and people just hanging around outside the restaurants, ...
We are now in Seville. The bus got us here 15 mins before it's scheduled time of 5:30am. We somehow shook ourselves awake and caught a bus to our Airbnb host in la Macarena about 10 mins away. As you can imagine we didn't get much sleep on the bus. We were hoping with crossed fingers that the room might just be available and we might be able to get some much needed rest till 11 am or ...
... When we got off the bus we got our first glimpse of the cathedral. A photographer came and took a group picture which we will get tomorrow before we leave. Our first stop was the Alcazar or Moorish Castle. This castle was built in the Moorish style by Christian Monarchs. So it is Mudejar style which is a mixture of Islamic and Christian elements. It was reminiscent of the Alhambra but had many more patterns of ceramic tiles ...
... demolished everything put in front of us. Served in area outside - tomatoes, fresh bread, pizzas made in pizza oven followed by watermelon . Agriturismo is run by couple from Milan so are not farmers as such. He smiles all the time a d appears quite hospitable and keen to please but lacks natural ability of host. There are fruit trees growing and attempts at a vegetable garden but overall everything is half finished and a bit of a mess. The wife does the cooking and appears ...
... we ended up at a discoteca (club) at the end of the night. Honestly, this is probably the most fun night I've had since arriving in Sevilla. There were tons of people and awesome music; we got in for free and got a discounted drink when we arrived. I don't remember the name of the club but I'm sure we will go back sometime soon! Everyone seemed to have a good ...

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.
