Historical Traveler Reviews Tryp Macarena Seville
For around 50 euros/ night a good quality hotel, room service, Films, mini bar were also very reasonable for a 4 star hotel and did not feel "ripped off" when paying the bill for the additional items as with similar hotels, in the UK for example.
Rooms were comfortable and there were slight noise issues as stated in other reviews but didn't really affect myself. I did expect more bar/ common areas etc, there was only one small bar which was generally quiet most of the time and didn't really serve any food so the only food outside the quite "formal" restaurant was in your room through room service.
As I was there for 5 nights the location about 2 km from the central area did not matter as it was pleasant walking throught the quaint streets and local squares not coming alive til after 10 pm and seeing more than the tourist trap areas, however, if you're there for just a couple of nights it may be wiser to stay closer to the points of interest.
Would recommend this to anyone and would say that if you have any complaints with the place just look at your bill at the end of your stay!!
Excellent value hotel
We were very happy with this hotel, which cost about the same as a 2 star hotel right downtown. It is easily accessible to all major sites and nice to be outside of all the tourist action at night. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet, only downside is a very tight bathroom. The hotel up top was a great bonus as well.
Loved my stay
Me and my husband stayed 4 days in Seville at the Hotel Macarena. We enjoyed every day there. The hotel was first class the staff were excellent. English was very good, Hotel room was clean and very well decorated had every thing you could possible need. Breakfast was lovely wide selection.
Bus into town was just out side the hotel. only cost one euro. Seville was wonderfull.
I would go back there tomorrow if i could.
Nice - get an inside room though
I liked the Macarena, but it does have some issues.The hotel was very clean and very attractive. The rooms are small especially for two big suitcases. The bathroom a tight fit, but that did not bother me. The lobby with tiled fountain was beautiful. The breakfast buffet odd. Lots of food, strange combinations. Like brussel sprouts and olives, along with the normal breakfast foods (both American and European). The front desk staff was so-so. Not very helpful or good with English.The bus stop is right across the street for going into town and right in front of the hotel for coming back.The Macarena Church (across the street) is fabulous. Take 10 minutes and go see it.Air conditioning is typically an issue in Europe (sometimes in America too). We visited on a warm March day and the windows had to be opened. The noise factor is pretty loud. The traffic doesn't cease until around 4 a.m. So get an inside room or earplugs or both.
Great bathroom, tight room
Not in the center of town but easy to get about. Bus across the street; cabs inexpensive.
Room was small but more than adequate, I was there to spend time in the town, not in my room other than sleep and wash. Beautiful blue marble bathroom with great, large towels. Nice hotel supplied toiletries. Nice closet storage. Wall mirrors made the room seem much lasrger and brighter than it was. Space was cramped before we brought our luggage in (two carry-on bags). One fit in the closet, the other went on the luggage rack which meant we couldn't get to the window without climbing over the chair placed between the desk and lamp table which was at the end of the nightstand. Get the idea? Room nicely decorated, just a lot of stuff.
Excellent breakfast buffet. OK evening buffet, much was overcooked or had been on the steam table too long. The cold dishes were very good and there was plenty of fresh fruit. Small bar off the lobby - pleasant. Some restaurant personel really rude! Service incident reported after first dinner. Next day maitre'd glared but said nothing.
Third day he smiled, maybe he knew we were leaving. A number of tourist groups were staying there plus a convention of Spanish cable communication people. Also saw airline crews.
Check in staff very nice. Bar staff pleasant.
Ancient Roman wall and Macarena Basilica across street to right. Short bus trip to Triana and ceramic factories.
There is lots of street noise but windows blocked out most. Agree with prior revews about hearing water in bathrooms but there was so much rain we were happy it was just the sound and we weren't wet.
Would be happy to return when the rain stops.
Cheap hotel, but probably would not stay again
We got a good deal on the hotel's website (50 euros per night). Price was great. Hotel was only okay. Location is out of the way (taxis in Seville are fairly cheap but the rides to/from the center of town began to add up). If we were to return, we'd look for something close to the Santa Cruz district. The rooms were fine. One complaint is that in the winter, there isn't much ventilation and the room can actually get quite stuffy during the day. When we arrived, it was suprisingly warm in the room and the only way to cool the room was by leaving our windows open all day and all night (if they have air-conditioning, it's turned off during the winter so opening the window is the only option to cool the room; unfortunately, it's very loud outside so you may have to choose between the heat and the noise).
A beautifull Hotel, inside and out. Well decorated, good facilites, lovely pool and views of the city from the roof terrace. The staff were very friendly and helpfull and I really enjoyed my stay!
Good location and value
We just spent 3 nights at the Tryp Macarena, a Sol Melia hotel. The rooms are well appointed, with large, marble baths, good towels, and doors between the bathroom which is in the entry and the bedroom which shuts out the hall noise. We got a great bargain on the Sol Melia website www.solmelia. com for 50 euros/night but not including breakfast. However, the walls are very thin and when the water ran in the bath next door I could have sworn it was in our room. With the A/C running and a white noise machine, we slept well. Do not get a room facing the street if noise bothers you. Lots of motor cyles, scooters, and buses. Good location. You can walk to almost all sites and the Macarena district is very interesting. All kinds of little restaurants around for breakfast and a short walk to the Guadelquivir River with a beautiful walkway and Salvatore Calatrava bridges.
My first trip to Spain and this hotel was wonderful. The welcoming lobby and the marvelous buffet was all you could want. The room was great and I had a wonderful stay there.
Very clean and well-kept but with a slightly impersonal air which extended to the staff's attitude to guests. Public areas are spacious and the rooms are smartly furnished but have walls thin enough to allow neighbouring guests' TV and conversations to be overheard. Somewhat inconvenient for the main sights and shops but taxis are plentiful.

Travel Blogs from Seville
After leaving Rabat we headed north once again to Tangier where we caught the ferry back to Tarifa, Spain. We were headed to Seville. This leg took most of the afternoon once we landed back on Spanish soil. A quick lunch stop saw us trying to order food from a menu completely in Spanish, of which we knew very little. This ended up in disappointment …
... the States. I know myself enough that when I start feeling overly emotional, I'm really just overly tired. I decided to give in to the afternoon siesta and laid down as I listened to my very much adored country music on my iphone. When I got up, I felt like it would be a good idea to go on a long walk, and so I did--for about 2 hours! But I greatly enjoyed it. By the time I had returned home, ...

Decided it was such an early start not to go to bed so out into town 22.30 for tapas at Giralda then montaditos (toasted sandwich) at Fabiola. Now gone midnight bars closing but managed to find one on the way back to the hotel that closed at 02.00. On coffee and sparkling wine as driving in the morning. Back to the hotel by 03.00 to watch TV and not fall ...

Music: There is American music everywhere, in the stores on TV and sung with guitar in the streets. This was very comforting at first, but can wait to hear more of their music as well as seem some dancing.
... on a Walking Tour, ate some great food and shared some incredible stories again yesterday. Also, like not going to Milan but Cinque Terre instead. According to my original plans I would've been here in Spain during June/July.It's amazing to contemplate how different my experiences would be.
Seville looks pretty awesome so far. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get a good idea of the city until Monday. It ...
