... for the system users. This building is also about beating the heat. Our host Piroska picks us up and drives us into the city, that part of Seville that grew within the wall. The streets are narrow and as usual arranged in a pleasing randomness, odd angles and a labyrinth of one-way passages. Pedestrians occupy the two-foot-wide pavement at the edge of narrow roadways, cars are usually polite. When big vans come you jump for a doorway for shelter. Scary old ladies keep walking on ...
... but to back it up. I make sure I get a good doze of breakfast and follow that up by continuing my sleep. Eventually, at 2pm, I start my day. I cruise around town with no specific route or agenda and end up at Plaza de Espaņa. I stroll around to the 48 different benches that mark the 48 different provinces of Spain and, initially, try to decipher the photo relating to each of them. Ultimately, I just look at the map of the province and move on. Afterwards, I stroll ...
... of the city was redeveloped into an expanse of gardens and grand boulevards. Numerous buildings were constructed in it for the exhibition. The Plaza de España is a plaza located in the park. It is a huge half-circle with buildings continually running around the edge accessible over the moat by numerous beautiful bridges. In the centre is a large fountain. By the walls of the Plaza are many tiled alcoves, each representing a ...
... told we could NOT see the Cathedral today, because it was "closed" to tourists for Corpus Christi. I was very disappointed, because a highlight of the trip was to see the tomb of Christopher Columbus, which is here. And now, we're not going to be able to do this…so…
We gathered to enter the cathedral, and upon entering through a side door, we heard the sound of chant and organ, in perfect ...
Lovely sunny day. Walked through the backstreets towards the river happened upon church open to show the magnificent floats of Mary and Christ carrying the cross. Breakfast by the river surprised to see first Widow of Christ having coffee. This was quickly followed by several more elegant young "Widows" being paraded by their smartly dressed partners. Into the old town to see more floats Mary again plus this time Jesus on the Cross. It seems all the various churches are ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Eurostars Regina Seville
A good hotel in an iffy location
Stayed 19th to 22nd February 2004.
Good service level all round. Check-in smooth, friendly and helpful.
Breakfast restaurant staff equally good. Excellent breakfast included in our stay.
Found the location the major downside to our stay. All the action is almost always to the south involving a walk of 15 minutes. This became a chore during the siesta when everything was shut and when it rained (heavily) a few nights.
The quality of fittings and furnishings was of a high standard and comparable to a 4 star establishment.
The room was a decent size and had no odours, which in chain-smoking Spain is an achievement IMHO.
The breakfast provided was buffet style and could not be faulted.
Almost made the hotel worthy of a fourth star.
Loved the location!
The Regina is bright, clean, the breakfast was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful and the underground car park is a real plus if you need to dump your car! The location is on a tiny one way road and is a 10 minute stroll to the hub of activity in the centre - no shortage of bars and Tapas! We liked it so much we are dropping in there agian later in 2004!
Wow! This is really good!
This is a really value for money hotel. Its really big, clean and classy....and the hotel staff were most helpful, giving us good tips on travel, etc.
No doubt that the hotel is about 10-15 min walk away from city centre.
But you must remember that this is Seville that we are talking about and the walk to the city centre are nice and easy, where you can look around and explore the little corners and nice architecture of Seville.
??location/postage stamp rooms....
Hotel was clean and staff very nice. Location is not convenient at all and street is noisy. Our rooms were barely big enough to turn around in. We left after one night and stayed at another location. A fine hotel for budget minded travellor that doesn't mind TINY rooms. Good breakfast. Very clean.
We had an excellent experience at hotel Regina. The room was clean and in perfect condition, and the staff was very helpful. The only negative issue is that the walls are so thin that conversation in the adjacent room is nearly distinguishable.(This seems to be a problem with many hotels in Spain) The hotel is about 15 minutes from the main tourist sites, a pleasant walk through the old streets and squares of Seville.
Positive Rating but. . .
Nice place. The staff speaks English. However, don't get your laundry done there by the staff--prices are outrageous. Location is a drawback to the major sites but it's a fun walk there through Seville's unique neighborhoods.
Remarks on the Regina
We just spent a full week at the Regina and all I can say: it's a splendid hotel!!!. Service, breakfast and rooms deserve at least 4 stars, only pity that some other URL's say that the bar serves snacks: Don't know how it is in other months, but in july the bar was only open from 5pm to 11pm and all they had were a ham & cheese sandwich. Happy enough on the waterfront there are a lot of small restaurants serving decent food for about 5 Euro
We have just returned from a weekend break in Seville, staying at the Hotel Regina. This hotel is slightly out of the centre of the town, about 10 minutes walk from the main shopping areas, but the streets are quiet and flat and it is an easy stroll. The hotel is cool, clean and quiet. It is elegantly decorated in yellow and white and is built around three courtyards. There is a small bar which serves good snacks all day - very useful if you return after a long day of sightseeing. The rooms are well equipped and there is an expresso coffee machine for guests in the corridor. The buffet breakfast is exceedingly good, in a light covered courtyard. A selection of hot and cold food is on offer, along with a wide range of coffees, teas and juices. We selected this hotel on spec from the web, but were very pleased with it and would highly recommend it.
