... to travel on a budget. I was way more impressed then our whole hostal
experience. The other three had a nap while I got ready and got a coffee at the
coffee shop on the corner. Although Seb didn’t stay with us, he couldn’t get
into his hostal until 2 so he briefly bunked with us. We got out on the city
around 1:30 and met Amanda’s friend Karlee who is studying in Seville. We ate
lunch with her and her friends who were al communications majors at a ...

For dinner, we went to a great tapas bar in the city center, off of a busy square. We originally wanted to sit outside because of the incredibly nice weather, but in order to get tapas we had to sit inside (who knows?). But, we got to try grilled baby squids in what I think was balsalmic vinegar, actually surprising good (also gooey?), as well as a more southern take on sangria ...

It took us into the narrow, cobblestone streets and the square outside the church.

Day 2 - Friday. Another very hot day today, 42*.We did a bus tour around Sevilla, which gave us a good icture of the local area and a real appreciation for the architecture and beauty of the city. After tapas for lunch, we went back to the hotel where we had some down time and time in the pool to cool down. We walked around after it cooled down. Quite a slow day really!
Day 3 - Saturday. Only ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sevilla Center Hotel Seville
Not always worth the walk back
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.
The hotel itself is very clean and the bathroom was nice and the shower was great. There is a great outdoor pool and deck and bar, but we were there in the winter so we couldn't enjoy it. The room service was ok. Don't order the hamburger if you really want a beef hamburger, it's a weird pork burger. I would recommend going across the street to the little grocery store and stocking up on snacks. All in all, this hotel was clean, the front desk staff was nice but the location wasn't great. Too far from the action. Wouldn't go back if I went to Seville again.
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).
