    Historical Traveler Reviews Parador de Carmona Seville

    Lovely, historic hotel


    We staid in this parador for one night, last year September and we loved it. It is a fantastic, historic building. We already had been to Sevilla and we just staid here for the experience of the parador. We weren't disappointed!

    Our room was nice and clean, as was the bathroom. We had booked half board throught the traveling agency already, as we had heard that the food is also great in the paradors. And it was. All this Andalusian dishes which we found it hard to choose from. The price is quite high, but it was worth it. We would surely reccomend it to others.

    Nice hotel with a honest staff.


    Stayed two nights during our honeymoon. Nice hotel. Didn't find any noise issues, but we were traveling off peck. Only noise that we could hear was the peaceful sounds of farm animals from the valley below. The view from our room was amazing.

    the hotel is about a 25 minute drive to Seville.

    After checking out and driving about 15 miles from the hotel, I realized that I had forgotten my wedding ring. We quickly turned around and got the key to our room from the front desk, but our room had already been turned over. I saw the housekeeping cart down the hall and asked if they had found a ring. Fortunately the housekeeper found it and gave it to me. I even offered her a 20 euro reward, but she refused to accept it.

    Wonderful hotel in a charming city


    We were only able to afford 1 night in this expensive hotel, but that one night was worth the short trip out from Seville. The parador is in a converted fortress with commanding views of the neighboring countryside. The hotel lobby was beautiful, and because our room was not quite ready when we arrived, the staff treated us to free glasses of wine on their balcony overlooking the pool. Nice place to unwind from the journey! We were placed in a room at the end of a hall, which turned out to be very spacious with a nice-sized and wonderfully appointed bathroom. Having just stayed at a place in Madrid roughly 1/3 the size of this room, we appreciated everything. We were a bit disappointed to find that we could not go out on the balconies. We were also disappointed by the food prices in the main dining room; it is beautiful but not worth dinner there. But the parador's location in Carmona made it worth the trek, and we enjoyed simply walking aimlessly through the old town. Definitely stay here if you get the chance!

    Nice, but very NOISY!


    We stayed here in March of 2005 and made it our base for day trips to Sevilla and Cordoba. With that purpose in mind, it is a great spot. However, it has a really big problem: VERY THIN WALLS! We had a room at the end of the hall with a nice balcony (the view is not that wonderful compared to other parts of Spain). The bathroom was nice and large and very nicely appointed. The room was fine as well. No complaints there. Nothing lavish, but completely acceptable.

    The problem with the hotel is that you can hear EVERY word the people in the next room say. I mean that literally. Not only can you hear every voice, I could hear them going to the bathroom, brushing their get the picture. For the price they charge (it is not a bargain and I thought I was getting a ritzier place by staying at the Parador), you shouldn't have to wear earplugs at night to get to sleep!

    Additionally, the staff was of limited service. Restaurant recommendations were lousy, help getting to other towns was usually incorrect. If we were to come back (and I would as Carmona is a charming town), I would stay at the Casa Carmona.

    Lovely, but don't take a room near the elevator


    This is a lovely, historic parador. Great rooms, great views and close to a great resaturant. BUT don't take a room near the elevator. The walls are way too thin.

    Schön aber buchen Sie kein Zimmer beim Fahrstuhl.


    Dies ist ein bezauberndes, historisches Parador. Tolle Zimmer, super Ausblicke und in der Nähe vieler, toller Restaurants. Nehmen Sie bloß kein Zimmer in der Nähe des Aufzugs. Die Wände sind einfach zu dünn.

    Fantasic Views


    We stayed here in mid-November and would highly recommend it. At the time of booking there were only superior rooms with a view available, which we didn't really want, but we were so glad we did when we got there. As the photographs show, the views across the plains at sunrise were breathtaking.

    Our room was a reasonable size, very clean and well appointed. The balcony was lovely to sit on and admire the view. The wooden shutters made it very cosy on a dark winter night.

    As others have mentioned, the dining room is fabulous. We enjoyed breakfast there each morning but our attempt at an evening meal was a let down. It was very expensive and offered a limited choice for those of us who didn't want to experiment with exotic Spanish meat products. The following night we found an excellent tapas bar just outside the gate of the hotel and had a very entertaining night with the locals.

    The front desk gave us useful tip when visiting Seville. We drove to the railway station close to the centre of the city, which is easy to find. There are plenty of car parks close to it, which have a reasonably cheap all day rate. We then got a taxi to the cathedral, spent the day sight seeing, and got a taxi back to the station without any problems.

    Overall this is a top class base from which to explore the area. The hotel is in a beautiful location and lives up to its reputation as one of the best Pardors.



    Stayed here in March 2004, it was absolute fantastic, the highlight of our trip. We had an amazing end room that had fantastic views over the plains. The service was superb, from the front desk to the maid service. We were there the day after the Madrid bombings, it was very moving when all the staff and guests gathered for a minute of silence to commenmorate the dead. Because that day was an official day of mourning there were no trains, businesses etc operating, they were so helpful and accomodating in helping reschedule people's plans and itineraries.

    The restaurant is amazing. I would highly recommend staying there and eating there!!

    Stunning, highly recommended


    Paradors seldom disappoint, but this one is certainly a star above the rest. It's a beautiful refurbished castle and the architecture is simply stunning. Our room was clean, fresh, beautiful. The restaurant was in a beautiful, high-ceiling room - food was excellent, though a bit pricey and there was even a very luxurious reading room, where you could just hang out, with a balcony overlooking some stunning scenery.

    This parador is amazing.

    Überwältigend. Sehr empfehlenswert.


    Paradors enttäuschen selten, dieses hebt sich aber deutlich von den anderen ab. Eine wunderschöne restaurierte Burg und die Architektur sind einfach atemberaubend. Unser Zimmer war sauber, frisch und wunderschön. Das Restaurant liegt in einem wunderschönen Saal mit hohen Decken. Das Essen war erstklassig, aber recht teuer und es gab ein recht luxuriöses Lesezimmer, in dem man einfach entspannen konnte und hatte einen Balkon, von welchen man die Szenerie genießen konnte. Dieses Parador ist einfach klasse.

    Off to Seville today from our Parador at Carmona. Once again a lovely city but we preferred Córdoba. We went to the magnificent Moorish "Alcazar" which was truly stunning, and also the Giralda tower (an old Moorish minaret). We took a walk through the Barrio Santa Cruz and ancient Quarter. Seville, the capital of Andalucia, is situated on the …

    Today we left Portugal and headed east toward Spain. When we reached Spain we had to turn our watches ahead one hour. I wondered why there was a time difference when all of Iberia is on the Greenwich Mean longitude. According to our Trip Lead, in the 1930s, Franco who was an admirer of Hitler changed the time zone for Spain to coincide with that of …

We went out for a cycle ride at a nature park, went out for a very tasty dinner in a tapas bar, watched Howls Moving Castle with the children :) Carmen cooked a traditional Spanish stew one …
