    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel San Gil Seville

    On our honeymoon

    from

    I was a bit surprised that such a nice hotel was located so deep into a neighborhood of residences. The walk to the main areas of the city were not a big deal to us, but we could have chosen a location closer to the city center. The courtyard was gorgeous, and the rooftop pool enjoyable. The staff were some of the nicest we encountered in Spain. The room was clean and the bathroom was very large. The small restaurant on site was a nice surprise. This hotel is closest to the younger side of Sevilla where many locals hang out at the restaurants and bars. We felt like we experienced Sevilla the way that the people that lived there did. If we returned to Spain, we would definitely go back to this hotel.

    Hotel San Gil Is a Fine Place to Stay

    from

    Hotel San Gil was all I expected it to be. We read several reviews before our trip and realized that it would be off the beaten track. However, the hotel itself was great. The rooms were very large, with large beautiful bathrooms. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.

    Even though the hotel is not in the main part of Sevilla, the taxis are very reasonable which made getting around town just fine. The bus system is easy to use as well.

    Very disappointing

    from

    This is not a 4 stars hotel, more of a three stars. Apart from the staff, who were very friendly and helpful, everything was wrong: the room was dark and because it looked out on the interior patio, where the passage is, you could not open your curtains otherwise anybody would see into your room. So the room was ugly and nothing special, the bathroom was tiny and the towels were old. Breakfast was a nightmare: the products were not fresh and, most of all, the dishes were dirty. We had to look for a long time to find a clean glass and cup, spoons were missing and we hardly ate anything because everything looked like it had been there for ages. The hotel was far away from the center (at least 20 minutes walk) and in a not particularly nice area. I will never again return to that hotel.

    Good experience but not as nice as we expected

    from

    We arrived at the San Gil and were surprised at the location, on a rundown looking street. The hotel was nice once you got inside, but we had imagined the location to be more convenient as described to us by our travel agent. We would have stayed closer to Cordoba or Granada if we did this again or even in Malaga. We were able to see the sights in Sevilla rather quickly and spent more money on catching a tour bus to Cordoba (1 1/2 hours each way) and Granada (3 hours each way). The hotel staff was very nice and extremely cordial/helpful in assisting us in making arrangements for dinner or getting tour reservations. I was so glad to see scrambled eggs offered in the breakfast buffet. Our other hotel in barcelona offered all sorts of pork options and we do not eat pork. Overall this was a very pleasant experience, my expectation were just different based on photos of the hotel I had viewed online. The photos were taken from INSIDE the main courtyard and not from the street. We are spanish speakers and this was great but the staff who we encountered spoke good english and were very accomodating. They even brought up a hair dryer because the one in our room was broken away from the wall. Some rooms have a kitchenette which we found out later. This is a good option if you have picky eaters or want to save some money eating out. Just go to the grocery store for pasta, etc. I would say this is more like a 3 star hotel. This was comparable to a Hampton Inn or decent chain hotel in the United States. We stayed here in July 2004

    Loved the Hotel San Gil!

    from

    I recently returned from a trip to several cities in Spain, including Seville. The Hotel San Gil is fantastic! The service at the hotel was friendly and warm, and the public spaces were beautifully decorated. My junior suite included a large set of rooms with kitchenette that faced the lovely interior garden and terrace. My brother stayed at the hotel at the same time, and his "double" room had a huge terrace that was at least the size of the room! The price included a very generous buffet breakfast, and is a great value. The hotel is not located in the center of the city but a short taxi ride will easily bring visitors to all the important sites. I personally loved the residential neighborhood in which the hotel is located, which has many excellent tapas bars and restaurants as well as historic churches. The Hotel San Gil has become one of my favorite hotels, and I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Seville!

    Good

    from

    Overall a good hotel. Nothing special but the entrance, the building and the courtyard were exceptional. The rooms are not great and I expected a little more luxury from a 4-star hotel. The breakfast could also be improved.

    Location is good. It is far better not to be right where the main attractions since it would be much noisier. San Gil is in a quiet area and it is very easy to walk to all the sites anyway.

    Far Away

    from

    The hotel had a nice courtyard but the location was quite far from all the relevant sights and if you wanted to go out in the evening you couldn't really walk out and do something around the hotel. You had to drive or take a bus. The room was spacious enough and cleanliness was moderate.

    Beautiful accommodations

    from

    We checked in here after having terrible luck with accommodations in Spain and though it was more expensive than we wanted (they only had a suite available), we were too exhausted to care. Initially our attraction was the rooftop swimming pool but the weather turned ugly soon after arriving and so we were then grateful that our room was so pretty and comfortable that we didn't mind. Also included was a full breakfast which was terrific.

    Viva Sevilla

    from

    The Hotel San Gil was wonderful. It is absolutely beautiful and in a nice and quiet location - yet everything is within walking distance. I was there for five days and only took four cab rides - two of which were to and from the airport! Our room was spotless and right on the courtyard where there were olive trees and orange trees. The free breakfast was quite extensive and hearty. Be sure to admire the exquisite tilework throughout the lobby - it is stunning. Without a doubt, one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in and one of the cheapest.

    The San Gil is just as described....

    from

    What you see on the various web sites where the San Gil is advertised is exactly what you get: an excellent hotel. Rooms are spacious and well furnished, and the air con worked very well in August heat! The staff are helpful if not over friendly. The breaksfast is wonderfull, and included in the room price. Limitations: location is not great, but is very quiet and only 6 Euro cab ride to Giralda.

    Eating and drinking so much every day had started to pile a couple of extra kilos on to both of us, so we decided to get some exercise and hire some bikes again! For the first bit of the trip, it was a bit hairy on the cobblestones, plus we were still having trouble finding our way around on the little winding streets. Craig is usually so good with directions, and I rely completely on him because I've got no idea! But in Seville he's having problems as well, ...

    The alchemist had left Santiago to finish his journey alone. Santiago rode for some time, and by the time night had struck and the moon was high he had found the pyramid. Tears of happiness rolled down his cheek and where his tears landed a scarab beetle appeared. He knew that was an omen, and he started digging there. All of a sudden, three men appeared behind him and asked him what he was doing. They started beating him and he told them ...

    ... I couldn't zoom in. They did part of the opera Carmen by Bizet. For me this will be one of the highlights of the trip. Larry and Derek thought it was great too. We were in a small theatre and very close to the stage. It was so full of energy that we were pretty wound up afterward. It was 9:00 when we got back. Larry and Derek stayed downstairs for a drink in bar. I came up to the room to download pictures and do this blog.
