We woke up a bit later today because we were done with class for the week. A short drive took us to the Plaza de Toros, the bullfighting arena. We sat in the empty arena while our guide explained the sport of bullfighting and its importance to the people of Spain. We then walked through a museum located within the walls of the arena. Each room set …
... oversaw the expansion of the empire to its greatest extents, was responsible for much building in Rome, was seen as philanthropically successful and was universally adored by all Romans. He was responsible for some of the expansion and construction at Italica and a statue was erected there to honour him. His successor was Hadrian. Hadrian's father was Trajan's cousin.

... favorite cafe, Gusto! Grabbed a table and sent Amelia a text that I was there, she would be finishing her school day. I had a cafe au lait and just sat there and blogged. This is also a great place to people watch. I Love watching the tourists who walk in, look around, can't decide where to sit, can't decide what to order. A few left and they shuffle around as slow as turtles. Would hate to travel with these folks, they absolutely ...
Saturday was an easy driving day. We were going to Seville, which was only a couple of hours away. When we woke up a motorcycle rally was starting to take place in Tarfia. Hundreds of motorcycles converged upon this little town. Good thing we had parked outside the city walls or we'd never get out. The police had shut down all the roads into the town and the motorcycle group about took over the entire town. (It was the "weekend" ...
... Very cool. In the city center, we met up with some of our friends who live in the Triana barrio and took us over the famous Triana bridge and took us to get some chocolate con churros. The day ended with a metro ride back and some catching up on American tv. Spanish tv is just not the same. Mostly in that it doesn't make sense and it's not funny. So I'll just stick to watching The Office and Parks and Recreation online. Mucho mejor. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Sevilla Seville
Rooms are comfortable and very quiet. Tourist attractions are a short cab ride away.
We stayed during our visit in Seville 3 nights in the Novotel Marques del Nervion.
Have just enjoyed a 4 night stay at the Seville Novotel with our 2 children. The room was comfortable with enough space for 4 (one double bed and sofa converted into 2 single beds). Bathroom was roomier than in many other city centre hotels we've stayed in. Everything was very clean, modern and not at all shabby. Despite being situated on a fairly busy road, rooms must have been soundproofed as we were not disturbed at all by traffic. Hotel staff were friendly and the children enjoyed the electronic games corner. Just behind the hotel is the Nervion shopping centre which includes a supermarket. We did not bother to have breakfast in the hotel as right next door there is a cafe serving excellent toast, coffee and orange juice at reasonable prices. It's about a ten to fifteen minute walk into the city centre but there are buses and taxis nearby. We'll definitely be using this hotel again.
Very good for the price
When in business I use to stay at Accor Hotels.I stayed in this Novotel at Seville two nights 11 and 12 of January and I can say the bedrooms are spacious and clean and the toillets were very good. The restaurants is nothing special. The breakfast was normal but you can take it just next door where there are two cafeterias and you can take the same for less than an half of the price. Talking about the price I payied only €60,00 per night and per room without breakfast and at less than 100m we have the Melia Lebreros (same category same quality better breakfast)asking €117,00 with breakfast.
So if you are in business the Novotel Seville is a very good option.
Large, modern hotel in new part of the city, just south of Santa Justa station and on the airport bus route. Great choice if staying in Seville with children as the large, comfortable rooms easily accomodate 2 adults and 2 children. Rooms and public areas immaculate, including small (but very cold in late October) rooftop pool overlooking the city. Comprehensive buffet breakfast choice for 14 Euros, with up to 2 children free, but lengthy queuing at peak times.
My husband and I stayed at the Novotel for 2 nights during our honeymoon. We had just come from a less-than-stellar hotel, so we were extremely pleased with this one. The room was spacious and quiet, service was very helpful and there is a rooftop pool that I enjoyed both days we were there. I would not recommend having breakfast in their restaurant - there are 2 cafes right beside the hotel where you can have a croissant and a cafe con leche or orange juice for around 2 Euros.
Large rooms, good bathroom, 3-5 Euros taxi from sights
The rooms were larger than expected, with modern bathrooms. The view was not so good (stadium). A bit farther from the old section of Seville that I would have liked, but not too big of a deal. Taxis were easy to catch for 3-5 Euros each way. Very close to the train station. The staff at the front desk were SO helpful and nice! This would be a good family hotel due to the large rooms.
Clean, modern hotel with fabulous bathrooms
Clean, modern hotel, newly refurbished with fabulous bathrooms. Good breakfast selection. good location within a shopping complex. Easy accessibility by public buses to train station and tourist attrctions.
Top hotel at a good price
Just got back from a 2 night stay in the Novotel, Seville. What a great hotel. Very modern, ultra clean in a nice part of the city. Too far to walk to the centre, but taxis go past the hotel every few minutes - 5 euros to the centre. Would reccomend this hotel due to the friendly staff and great facilities, including a fabulous roof top pool!
We stayed there 3 nights Wed 12 to Sat 15 May 2004. Though open more than 1 year, this hotel is not marked on any local tourist maps. Seville could be divided into 3 main areas. The historic city borders the northern side of the river. The main railway station (Santa Justa) lies to the north of that. This hotel is within 1 Km of that station and in the heart of the shopping centre and opposite Seville football stadium. It struck us as a very safe area in which to walk around. The Novotel has its reception on first floor, and room design (1 large and 1 convertible bed) follows Novotel format. All felt clean and new. Breakfast was EUR 13 each and buffet style - possibly overpriced. Staff were friendly. Literature was in English and Spanish, though there were few other concessions to non-Spanish speakers in Seville. Very surprising for a city receiving US and Japanese tourists. Rooftop swimming pool closed while we were there. No business centre but room TVs gave fuzzy image internet access. We would return to this hotel.
