... After that, I decided the wine was really good so we dropped into another bar and had another drink!
We cut loose after two as not only did we still need to find our bus, but we also had to try and work out where to get off in the dark, going in the opposite direction....what a pain to have to be sensible! Fortunately the gate to the gated marina was still open!
On the advice of travellers, we decided to spend our ...
... We didn’t really do much until the arvo when just Jason and I went on the afternoon walking tour which went through some different thing compared to the morning. Once again it was a really good tour. A few interesting stories such as one about a Jewish girl. The girls nickname was "the hot chick" (not literal, but what it translates to for the time), who was daughter to a wealthy Jewish business man. At the time of the Spanish Inquisition the Jews were heavily ...
Amelia's alarm went off at 8am to a Lady Antebellum song. We both had slept like tired grizzly bears all night. She headed off to her last day of a full day of school. I headed off back to bed! Woke up to the maids being seriously loud, then saw that it was 12:30pm ~ I quickly forgave them. It is very sunny and warm out today, thank goodness. Guess I will be taking those new red jeans home with the tags still on them. Couldn't wait to get ...

Just walking from one side of the Cathedral to the metro stop (normally a 5-10 minute walk) took over an hour. It was crazy. The first night I went out, on Holy Thursday, I saw the Madrugada procession (which didn't even start until 1am), marking the official start of Good Friday.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hospes Las Casas del Rey de Baeza Sevilla Seville
Fabulous hotel, highly recommend it!
It was a great hotel, small, intimate, spotlessly clean with great interior design. The staff were friendly & helpful & the location was great, although not so easy to find in the maze of Spanish streets. Quality, service & value all make it a wonderful place to stay. It was the nicest place on our trip.
Clean, comfortable, but dark and small
I stayed here for one night in late August 2004 on a quick trip through southern Spain. The hotel is in a good location, very quiet, very clean, comfortable room, but minimal light and very dark; just 3 lamps to light the room. Was rather like being in a dark UK basement flat! Furnishings were very neat, modern, clean and simple.
However, staff were very friendly and helpful. Lots of French people were staying here during my visit too. You can lunch by the rooftop pool in the shade or sun which was rather relaxing. Breakfast comprised a wide selection of goodies to suit all tastes and nationalities and was a good range and variety for the price.
Would recommend this hotel, however, it seems as a solo traveller I was (as I find is often the case) given probably the worst room in the hotel! I was put in one of the smallest rooms, just a TV, tiny bathroom, no CD/DVD like other rooms and it was directly underneath the swimming pool, so the constant sounds of children jumping in the pool was somewhat annoying (room 43). Had a view onto the courtyard, but not much privacy as other guests would regularly pass by my window which meant the curtain had to remain shut making the room even darker!
Ok for a night or two, but I'm sure for the price there is better around if you need to stay longer.
This hotel is on the edge of everything that is happening in Seville (short leisurely walk) with the added bonus of less noise disturbances at night. This area feels as safe as any I've felt safe in on my travels. So that's the location dealt with.
Our room was very clean, elegant and spacious and always kept in perfect order by the hotel housekeeping. Interconnecting open air courtyards were filled with potted plants and the quiet areas in the hotel's lounge and library were inviting and relaxing as well as being beautifully designed.
The hotel has a delightful rooftop terrace/pool with views of the surrounding skyline (which is studded with church towers and minarets).
The food in this hotel was very good although we rarely ate in as there are so many good places to eat within easy reach.
Service standards here are high. I will not bore you with the details - suffice to say staff were very efficient and friendly throughout and our stay was very pleasant.
While in Seville I would recommend the following restaurants:
Tapas: Bar Giralda, Bar Universal, Kiosco los Chorritos
Restaurants: Meson Cinco Jotas (award winning Jabugo jamon and pork). La Juderia (fantastically fresh fish and wonderful meats). Modesto (good fish).
Stayed here for two nights in July 2002. It was exquisite! It was on par with 4 star hotels I've stayed at all over the world, and very reasonably priced considering it. The pool area was small but quiet and relaxing, the rooms were modern and beautiful, the common areas were the same. Located in a quiet neighborhood, but in walking distance of the main sights. I have since stayed in many hotels around the world and have wished I could take it with me everywhere I go. I would definitely go back.
The hotel has a low-key elegance to it and is designed and planted in a beautiful and stylish way. However, when staying in my smallish, plain and dark (albeit very clean) room it did not feel like a 4-star hotel any more. Besides, the hotel is tucked away in an area of crooked alleys and therefore difficult to find.
Excellent Hotel, Wonderful Staff
We just stayed at this wonderful hotel for 2 nights. The staff are fantastic - they made us feel very welcome and went far above and beyond what was required. The hotel itself is lovely. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are roomy and modern. Location is great - not right in the middle of things, but within easy walking distance. I highly recommend this hotel.
OK - Dark room - no central lighting and no Bose hi-fi
stayed here Jan03 - read these reviews - thought £100 a night off peak a little pricy but a special treat for my partner and I. Am dissapointed with the expectations built up - no central light in room just three lamps and very, very small window so no natural light coming in. Air-con didnt cool the room down. The Hotel is very clean and in a good state of repair - just expected a cheerful room - with the small window and dim lighting it felt like being in a cellar/basement. It is room 23 if that helps.
A charming little hotel, you feel almost as if you're staying in a wealthy friend's home: the furnishings in the rooms are lovely and well-chosen, with very comfortable beds, plush white linens, and Bose sound systems, the marble bathroom in our room was opulent, and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The restaurant has inventive, fresh, and well-prepared cuisine. My husband and I stayed here for three nights last October, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel. Walkable to everything, but tucked back on a quiet little street, I would highly recommend staying here.
Fabulous location; top notch staff
My partner and I just returned from a 4-night stay. We were very happy that we found this hotel. The hotel's location is terrific, located next to a small church and just a 5 minute walk down some beautiful, narrow streets to the Barrio Santa Cruz. We paid for a standard double (EU127). We were given room 35, directly overlooking the Plaza where the hotel is located. The room was huge, with beautiful wood floors, sitting area, a wonderful bed, CD/DVD and a large flat-screen TV. The staff, though, was where the hotel really blew us away. We just loved them. I can't put it any more succinctly than that. We couldn't possibly have been more satisfied.
Spent 4 nights here and found it to be charming, excellent location (walk to Cathedral, Alcazar). The restaurant which is new is so good that we ate there every night--modern Spanish cuisine, a good change from the traditional. Breakfast is a nice cold buffet, but also you can have eggs etc. for 12 euros. Rooms are small, minimally furnished. Some open to the courtyard and do not have much light. Staff is very helpful and courteous.
