... seafood is still alive and the girls like to watch the snails and lobsters moving about. Ham is a very big deal here and you see the legs hanging up by the hoof everywhere you go. All of the food at the market looks fresh and it’s not expensive compared to the grocery store. Too bad I don't have my copy of Joy of Cooking with me - I think it tells how to skin a rabbit!
There is a flea market held every Thursday on a street close to our apartment and ...

We were again very satisfied with the range of choices on offer, with the sardine's on toast worthy of a special mention. We then went bed feeling rather flat as we knew we had to leave Seville tomorrow. But we all know the old saying, there's always more fish in the ocean. See you again tomorrow, goodbye for ...
... its amazing ceiling. The gardens are beautiful too. We spent a good 2 hours there and could have spent more. I was so rapt in it, I bought Alcazar coasters to go with the Paris and London ones Byron likes so much and another fan with the Alcazar tiles motifs on it.
We then joined a guided walk which started at 130pm by the river to the old town and the guide talked about the major monuments. It was quite short and the guide didn't tell us anything we ...
... were like him! :) He could even speak with Greg in Polish, and speak with me in some Japanese. Impressive! We visited several major sites at the city centre and learned so much. One of the places to note is Plaza de Espana which was built for 1929 expo. It looked very grandeur and details were just amazing. The history behind its layout was very interesting as well. Several movies were filmed here - "Laurence of Arabia", "Star ...
... forward to trips, I was happy to say getting there was a breeze! We flew into Madrid and from there took a metro to the train station and hopped a train right away to Seville! The train ride was beautiful and clocking in at about 2 hours and 15 min, it was a nice relaxing and scenic break readying us for our first destination. Stepping off the train and out into the city I couldn’t help but bear my teeth with a smile spurred by Sun and palm trees. I felt like ...

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.
