Sevilla Center Hotel

... just in time to be allowed to buy a ticket for a train that was about to depart and was told to run to jump on. As soon as I got off the escalators I stressfully jumped onto the closest carriage and walked down the train to my seat. Strangely enough there were no other passengers onboard... Then a train driver appeared and looked perplexed as to why I was in the train, and soon pointed out the correct train that had been parked in front of the ...
... but there were some very beautiful shops as well with traditional Muslim and Christian jewelry. We also found some awesome pottery shops. Luckily, I've found a place in Granada where I can buy a small carry-on suitcase for 7 euros, because I did not leave room in my suitcase for souvenirs :)
I've got two weeks left of class, and two weekend left before I have to come home. I feel like my Spanish has improved...except for ordering food at restaurants. ...
... for some great views, thankfully its umpteen ramps and not steps, so my knee didn't flare up. The tower is around 90m high.
The cathedral is just so huge, it started off as a mosque around 1100, and then the Christians took it over around 1200, and completed the building around 1400! The photo of a painting of Mary dates to 1300. The main altar which is a 65ft high carving was being restored so we did not see that.
... forward to trips, I was happy to say getting there was a breeze! We flew into Madrid and from there took a metro to the train station and hopped a train right away to Seville! The train ride was beautiful and clocking in at about 2 hours and 15 min, it was a nice relaxing and scenic break readying us for our first destination. Stepping off the train and out into the city I couldn’t help but bear my teeth with a smile spurred by Sun and palm trees. I felt like ...
Well this weekend was a hell of a experience. It started on Friday night when my 26 year old host sister took me out with her friends. We started at a Spanish Jazz bar in the center of Seville, which was awesome with all the old architecture and churches. The bar had a live band playing and it was really good. From there we went to a gay bar where a short asian man speaking spanish attempted to pick me ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sevilla Center Hotel Seville
My boyfriend and I stayed here at the end of Decemeber and for New Year's Eve. It was a nice experience after coming from Madrid and staying at a tiny hostel. We decided to walk from the Sevilla train station to the hotel, it was about a 25 minute walk. I had read reviews about the hotel and that there wasn't much around and it was true. There was a nice park with orange trees but after one day you don't really notice the park anymore. The walk into the tourist area became very tedious and boring. It was about a 15 minute walk which doesn't sound like much but after a long day of sighseeing the walk was tiresome.
After a long road trip to Seville and not sure where to stay, we looked up and found this marvelous hotel. The accommodations were superb, concierge was quite helpful to those of us who didn't speak the language, and the restuarant/ bar were divine. We recommend the sangrias!!
Nach einer langen Reise nach Sevilla wussten wir noch nicht, wo wir unterkommen würden, haben dann aber dieses wunderschöne Hotel gefunden. Die Zimmer waren superb, der Concierge recht hilfsbereit für alle, die die Sprache nicht sprechen konnten, das Restaurant und die Bar waren einfach himmlisch. Die Sangrias sind sehr empfehlenswert!!
This hotel is located between the commercial(Nervion)centre and the historic centre of Seville, and it is within walking distance of both of them.The staff were welcoming, polite and efficient. Our room was spacious, comfortable, pleasant and it had a very nice bathroom. Breakfast was good and the hotel had a decent restaurant and spacious public areas. Everything was shining and clean (I think that the hotel is fairly new). We booked the hotel on the internet and we obtained a rate less than half the rack rate. The hotel and the excellent weather that we had during our stay (November 2005) meant that we had a very enjoyable autumn break!
Waren in diesem Hotel, die Angestellten waren klasse und das Zimmer überdurchschnittlich gut. Man muss allerdings schon 15 Minuten zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten laufen, was für aber kein Problem war, da es ein schöner Spaziergang war.
Great place to stay
We have stayed at this hotel, the staff was great, the room was well above average. One thing to note that it is located about 15 minutes away from all the attractions but that was not an issue for us, since it made for a nice walk.
Lovely hotel but a little far out
The hotel itself is just beautiful. So modern, clean and stylish. We had a triple room and it was still pretty spacious. The decor was modern though a bit dark. Breakfast was wonderful as was the breakfast room. The pool area had great views though it was a little stark. The only thing against this hotel is its location. It's stuck in the middle of nowhere though the bus stop is about a couple of blocks away. There is a small supermarket across the street for basic things like water but for food, either eat in the centre (about 30 minute walk away) or go to the Nervión Plaza shopping mall which is about a 15 min walk away.
Good modern hotel
Stayed here for a long weekend in March. Nicely decorated room with a massive and very comfortable bed, and nice bathroom. Good choice for breakfast, and drinks and snacks in the lobby bar were reasonably priced. It's a 15-20 minute stroll to the old city, so fine if you like walking! There's a supermarket opposite for bits and pieces.
Gutes modernes Hotel.
Waren im März für ein langes Wochenende hier. Schön eingerichtete Zimmer mit einem sehr großen und komfortablen Bett, schönen Bädern. Zum Frühstück gibt es eine gute Auswahl und auch die Getränke und Snacks an der Lobbybar hatten akzeptable Preise. In die Altstadt läuft man ca. 15 Minuten, was ok ist, wenn Sie gerne zu Fuß gehen! Kleinigkeiten bekommt man im Supermarkt gegenüber.
Good modern alternative
Had a good stay here in August 2004. Hotel is business-focussed but we enjoyed it as tourists. Location is just okay - about a ten minute walk to the historic center through an area under development (we didn't find a particularly easy bus route, taxi was ~€4). But if you prefer larger, modern hotels to the small, quaint variety in the center it's a good choice. Room was smallish but nicely designed and has a good pool and terrace on the third floor, especially desirable and hard to find in summer. Only ate breakfast - €12 for typically hotel buffet, parking was expensive at €15/night (there is parking in various side streets but Andalusia has a reputation). Would stay here again, especially for €50 rate (utell).
