I reserved one night room same day when I arrived (straight from hotels website). When I reserved room, it told that there is parking place. Hotel situate close Cathedral and by car is not easy to go. They have valet parking and hotel drive your car some where. It takes 45 minutes to get car. So we asked in the morning at 10.00 that we want our car at 13.00. When we were back. in hotel at 13.00 they told that we need to wait 45 minutes (lost of traffic ). We waited 1 hour and finally we got our car. So it means that we were late next appointment. Hotel is very dark - lots black elements. Situation is fantastic. Breakfast was normal. When we arrived one girl sat with us and told lot interesting places in Sevilla. Without that episode with car everything was OK, but waiting car was disappointing . THERE IS SO COOL ROOF TERRACE !

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 days we absolutely love the area. We found the hotel staff very nice and very accommodating. The original room we got smelled - so they moved us to another room at was smaller than the original room. We then asked to have a bigger room and they moved us to this apartment within the hotel- ABSOLUTELY beautiful, but there is NO hot water! My opinion not sure if it was worth the price - smell or not hot water ?

we went here for a drinks, it was amazing! I had mohito which I did not like and asked them to replace it with pina colada which was the best I ever tasted! The service is excellent and the view is very nice.

Went here twice for drinks on 4th floor rooftop bar - no need to book; great attentive and friendly service both times. €8 for a glass of cava which is fair considering the 'free' view. They do cocktails and beer too. The view is really amazing of the Cathedral, particularly at dusk/after dark. Well worth a visit.

After our evening meal the waiter in the Hard Rock Cafe recommended the bar in this small hotel due to the views. He wasn't wrong you can have wine or wonderful cocktails with a beautiful view of the Giralda lite up and bathed in golden light. I'd highly recommended this just walk in and say you're here for drinks and you're shown the lift. Prices reasonable too.

We loved staying at EME. The staff were super helpful, especially Carlos who always made excellent suggestions. The hotel itself is very cool with a beautiful interior and the rooms are really awesome. Comfortable, well appointed and extremely spacious. They even have this awesome private spa which is more like a huge spa pool that you can book to use for an hour... a novel treat when you've been walking Sevilla got days on end. Loved it here and we'll definitely be back!

Absolutely beautiful place. Restaurant and roof top bar offer the best views of Seville Cathedral and Seville town. The atmosphere is magical, food and drinks are delicious. It was a truly special experience for us and we will definitely return here in the future.

We loved our stay at the EME Cathederal Hotel. The decor was gorgeous, each room different and quirky and staff very attentive. Loved sitting at the rooftop bar each afternoon - very groovy! Breakfast was very good and more staff then guests - nothing was a problem. Sensational location!

The hotel is in an excellent location next to the Catherdal. The decor is quirky with some interesting touches. We were there on our honeymoon and they laid out roses and rose petals on the bed for us which was a lovely touch. Check in is very smooth with guests being offered a complimentary drink of cava while the paperwork is completed. On the negative side the rooftop pool and seating area is quite small (not uncommon for city hotels such as this). The thing we really objected to was the price of drinks at the rooftop bar (€6 euros for a beer!) and while we know it's a destination bar which is open to the public and has queues to get in at thew weekend, there was more than one bar on the roof (one being up behind the pool, which could easily be made a residents only bar during the day offering guests the same prices as the hotel bar downstairs (only 3 euros for a beer). By all means charge extortionate prices to tourists coming for the view but to charge guests who are already paying a lot to stay at the hotel a fortune for the privilige for a drink by the pool seems excessive. The breakfast was lovely with a good selection of egg dishes made to order as well as the buffet option. All guests are offered a 50 minute session in the spa area was lovely - highly recommend - however there was some mix up with our booking which meant that we were only given 30 minutes - although the session felt short, the staff member assured us it was indeed the full 50 minutes and as we didn't have a watch with us we believed her. Only after we complained, when we discovered that we'd been short changed, did they offer us another full session and even threw in a plate of freshly prepared fruit (a thoughtful and appreciated touch). Perhaps our biggest complaint is that having gone back to our room one day, we found broken glass on the floor (no idea where it had come from but the room had been made up in our absence). We reported it when we went out for dinner to the staff at reception who assured us that they would send someone immediately. Needless to say when we returned at midnight, the glass was still on the floor and no-one seemed to know anything about our earlier complaint. It was then dealt with immediately. All in all a good hotel which is well staffed but there are a few things they could do which would make it great.

If you only visit one bar on Sevilla make sure this is it. It's not cheap but if you want a Cathedral backdrop and a good vibe whilst you drink the night away this is the place. The staff were awesome, very attentive and couldn't do enough for us to make sure we were enjoying the experience. A great find for a one off.
