Hotel Maestranza
Ranked #107 of 177 Hotels in Seville
Reviewed 3 November 2016

My husband and I traveled all around Spain in the month of October. I booked our flight and hotels many months in advance based on reviews from other travelers. We did not choose overly pricey places but we looked for clean, well-kept rooms in the middle range for each city. I have to say out of all the places we stayed in Spain at a similar price range, this place was extremely over priced for the type of room we received. We did not have the same experience as the positive reviews. I wouldn't call this place "clean".

Our train from Granada ran late and we arrived to the hotel close to 9:30PM at night. The hotel only had one room left which we were unfortunate to get on the 2nd floor right next to the elevator. Upon arrival, the night was warm and the windows were open in our room. The hotel advertises that it has Air Condition (AC). I cannot sleep in hot rooms and I specifically went out of my way to find and reserve hotels that had working AC's. Sadly this room had an AC but it was broken and leaked large amounts of water on the floor. I told the receptionist and she told me that a maintenance person would come out to look at it. At this point, my husband and I decided to go out to dinner. We decided to put a towel on the floor under the leaking AC to prevent the water from going every where. When we returned the AC was turned off again and maintenance person had simply opened the windows. Turning off the AC isn't considered fixing the problem. The bathroom had mold all around the bathtub and the ceiling above the shower head had a huge mold stain from a leak in the room above our floor. The shower curtain had pink mold growing on it. To top it off, when we got ready to go to sleep, we pulled back the covers to discover our bed had sheets with large old stains on it. Doesn't make sense why they would reuse those sheets. Lastly, we were positioned right next to the elevator and we could hear everyone leaving and coming in and out of the hotel as if they were in our room. We told the receptionist and she was very nice but she could not move us to another room.

In the end, we booked a room at another hotel that was a 1000 times better, clean, and had a working AC. We still had to pay for 3 nights at this hotel because they refused to let us cancel our room reservation, even though we didn't stay there. If I could have given the hotel negative stars I would have. I have stayed at hostels nicer than this place. Stay away.....

Room Tip: Don't book here. Period!

This hotel has only one star, but a very high rating. The hotel is in a very popular zone, next to many restaurants, cafeterias and bars, 5 minutes from the cathedral, clean, and with a very kind staff. there is no breakfast or parking, so what. With a good advice from the staff we found a parking just after the corner (20 euro for one day) and had breakfast near the hotel. Good value for money.

We had a room with 2 twin beds (we knew ahead of time) since that's all that was available. Room was clean, very small, but had everything that was needed. Toiletries and hairdryer in the bathroom. Hotel staff was friendly. There was a fair amount of noise, both from outside (restaurants etc...) and inside (other rooms) but thankfully it did quiet down in the evening. There is an elevator/lift but it was incredibly slow, much faster to take the stairs, but helpful if you have a lot of luggage. In my opinion, a very basic hotel, but the location made up for it. Easy walking distance to tons of great restaurants and cafes and the cathedral. Seville is an awesome city and has a great vibe. This location was perfect for exploring the city!

There is no restaurant on site and no fridge or coffee maker in the room, but there are a ton of great restaurants/cafes within a 1-5 minute walk.

Room Tip: A room away from the front street would likely be quieter

Our trip to Spain began with a missed flight, so our stay in Seville was cut short by a day. Luckily our hotel was in a great location for exploring the city sights. We arrived early in the morning, greeted by a very nice guy, our room was ready. He gave us a map and told us of his favorite tapas restaurant (we went, it was highly rated and delicious). The hotel has an elevator (small, typical of Europe). The room was clean, updated and nicely decorated. Had AC, which we needed! Elena was working the front desk the rest of our visit. She was very helpful in answering our questions and giving advice. We wish we had been able to enjoy 2 nights in Seville, but if we return in the future we would certainly stay at this hotel again.

The hotel had a great location and the staff was friendly. The room was small and nothing special but as to be expected with a European hotel. The wifi wasn't the greatest and the air conditioning was a bit too strong but beat the alternative because it was very humid and hot while we were there.
