Until 9am the morning of our departure this hotel was pretty hard to fault. It's beautifully decorated and calls to mind a Moroccan riad. The adorable man on reception insisted on whipping out a map and bombarding us with tourist info and top tips despite our only staying for one night. His recommendation for dinner was spot on. However everything went heavy machinery shaped when our much needed first-day-of-holiday-lie-in was shattered by a thunderous truck right outside our window. I'm not sure this hotel could ever be called quiet but this was beyond a joke and actually drove us out. Not the hotel's fault of course but worth bearing in mind.

Room Tip: As far from the road as possible!!!

Stayed for a long weekend and this hotel was spot on. In a great central location and full of character. Service friendly and helpful - gave us a map and directions unprompted. Room and bathroom very clean and cleaned daily. Seville was absolutely gorgeous and would love to go back - if we did, we would definately try and use this hotel again.

This hotel was very cute and quaint and most of all, welcoming. When we arrived, the front desk person was very helpful and got out a map for us right away. He gave us recommendations on where to go to eat and things to see, which were right on. The hotel room was a good size and comfortable. The only thing was that it could be a little noisy as it is an old building and we could hear people in the next room. I enjoyed being able to enjoy free coffee. Also a word of advice is not to drive here. There isn't any parking in this area and it is located on a very small one way street where a lot of traffic drives through and people are walking. If you have a car, parking a ways away will require a walk, but save you some stress!

I really enjoyed staying here. The staff was great - the guy at the front desk was genuinely friendly and I was impressed that he spoke so many languages and could communicate with every guest that walked thru. The room was tiny but very charming in its simplicity and quaintness. This was the ONLY bed in all of our Spain travels that was super comfortable, which was very welcomed. The bathroom was tiny, but completely functional. The patio is beautiful and very welcoming and bright. The entrance to the hotel is kinda funny because as soon as you walk 1 step out the door, you are literally in the driving path of lots of taxis and motorcycles. The location was perfect - everything was in walking distance and there were great 'locals' tabernas within a short walk from the hotel. I felt very comfortable at this hotel and was a bit sad we had to leave it when we departed to Granada.

Had prebooked three nights with the hotel website - a double room at €90/night Bed & Breakfast, although I see other reviewers had managed to get rooms at €50/night.

As we had an upstairs room at the back of the hotel, with a small window opening into a small service area with no sight of the outside world, and an extractor running until the early hours of the morning, I feel a charge of €50/night would have been a more acceptable charge.

On the plus side, the breakfast was good, as was the free of charge coffee during the day and free WiFi, which was available in the public area. Staff very friendly and helpful.

When booking, I was aware there was no parking at the hotel - and the roads in the Santa Cruz area where the hotel is located are so narrow - obviously built before the days of the horseless carriage. Many of the roads are too narrow for a car and a pedestrian at the same time!

There are public carparks available, but they all charge in the region of €20/€22 per day. There is very little on road parking available and No Parking signs abound. However, there seems to be little enforcement of the No Waiting rules. After the first €22 of paid for parking I managed to find some on street parking (under a no waiting sign - but traffic could pass easily) and left the car there for 48 hours without any damage or incident.

If taking a hire car to the older areas of Seville, pay for any extra insurance you can obtain!

Room Tip: Try to avoid room 112
