Tryp Macarena Seville San Juan de Ribera 2 41009 Seville Ph 34 954 375700 Travel south through La Mancha to Cordoba. Visited the mosque of the caliphs And we could hear about the influence of the Moors. The Musquita was both Catholic cathedral and mosque at the same time (800 AD).

Great hotel because great variety of Spanish food and with aircon! There was an early optional tour of the moorish alcazar and archives of las Indians. We instead had a leisurely start to the day, joining the tour at 10.15am for a tour of Seville. We will view the bell tower of the Giralda, the Plaza de Espana (beautiful pottery tiles) and Maria …
After leaving Rabat we headed north once again to Tangier where we caught the ferry back to Tarifa, Spain. We were headed to Seville which 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 little. This ended up in disappointment as Mike …
It was a magical day in Seville. Our first full day of Spain and it was to be a great kickoff to the country. We started with our 8 Euro breakfast in the salon of Hotel Tryp Macarena. It was very luxurious, large and not at all lean. We headed off to meet with Concepcion and met her at the Plaza de Fernando at 10:30 am sharp as Rick Steves …
We were greeted by a sour face and no greeting as we were the only ones waiting for the doors to open for the breakfast on the top floor of the Eurotel. A young girl grumpily led us into the breakfast cafeteria and after a fairly good breakfast, we packed up our things and left the hotel. We said our farewells to Tavira, to the Algarve and to …

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.
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.
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.
Not in the center of town but easy to get about. Bus across the street; cabs inexpensive.
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!
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.
