Historical Traveler Reviews Silken Al-Andalus Palace Hotel Seville
A mega-hotel in charming Seville
We spent two nights at this hotel in June and were welcomed as we walked into the door by 600 (!) French physicians in town for a convention. That gives you an idea for the enormity of this hotel. If size doesn't bother you, the Andalus offers large rooms, modern bathrooms, and a sizeable pool. It's a bit out of town but the bus is just a block away and easy to use. The price was right - $100 - but next time I think we'd choose a more "charming" place closer to town.
This was a very nice hotel to stay in. The rooms were spacious and modern with a beautiful king size bed and spotless restroom. The only problem, and a minor one at that, is it's location to the city. You will need to rent a car or take the bus. A bus pass was 3 Euro for 10 rides or 1 Euro per ride without the card. I would stay there again!
April Fair in Seville
The hotel was seriously spacious, staff very friendly & helpful with a good language skills. Our bedroom accommodated three of us comfortably with ample space. The hotel has 4 choices of places to eat - we chose the buffet hall which had a superb range of dishes & was exceptional good value. Unfortunately for us, the weather was wet & quite chilly during our stay & we did find the hotel a tad cool at times, considering the climate! Being three fairly fit active ladies we were not however able to walk the distance into the centre, so taxi's are a must but not expensive!All in all, an excellent hotel
Stayed at the Andalus Palace for one night and thought it was great. It has a very modern decor, both in the huge lobby area and in the rooms.
The staff was very friendly, and accomodated our request for a late check out with no problem. Since we were driving we found the location to be perfect. It was easy to find, with no need to drive through busy downtown streets. They have very convenient underground parking (@10 Euros per night), and the bus stop is less than a block away. For one Euro each we were able to very easily catch a bus into the center city.
A first-class hotel but a little away from the city
The Silken Al-Andalus Palace Hotel is a first-class quality hotel with nice-sized rooms and accomadations. The hotel staff is helpful (except the concierge named Domingo). It is a relative modern hotel with nice facilities. The only negative is that it is a bit away from the city and sites of Seville. Unless you are touring with a group, the only way to get to the city and sites is via taxi. Besides the inconvenience of being outside the city, it is a pleasant hotel with nice, clean accomodations. I would recommend this to a budget-minded traveller who doesn't mind taking taxis to get to places.
First class hotel for a reasonable price
I love this hotel. Very modern decor. Nice amenities. Spacious and nicely furnished. If you're looking for a first-class hotel for a reasonable price, look no further. This is it!!! It's far from the main attraction, but you can always catch a bus or taxi into the main attraction areas.
Great hotel, but watch the rip-off
The hotel is very nice, modern (industrial looking), and has all the conveniences (mini-bar, radio/cd player, clothes press etc). You can take the bus 2 blocks away which will take you to the main tourist attraction. However watch out for the rip-off if you book a triple. We supposedly reserved a room for 3 through Lodging-Deals.com for 69 Euros in July 2003. However upon checking out we were charged a whopping 21 Euros per night extra. When we complained they explained that they charged us for the extra bed, not for the extra person ! The extra bed is a fold-out sofa bed which is part of the room's furnishing.
