I think the hotel is lovely, there are several rooms around this Andalucian/Arabic structure. They all seem pretty dark, but it must be good for when it's summer! It's furnished a bit heavily, with drapery, old style furniture, etc. We had a suite with spa and the tub was amazing. Very relaxing. Service is good, breakfast was okay. We paid quite a lot, and I wonder if we should have gone for such an expensive option, because it wasn't exactly a luxury experience. The location is really good, you can visit everything on foot and it is near a lot of good restaurants.
We stayed here over Christmas in room 11. It is a traditional beautiful Andalusian hotel. But the outside space are much nicer than the bedrooms. Our bedroom was dark and quite basic. There was no where to hang clothes. If you want a traditional Sevilla experience pay the extra and get a more superior room on the upper floors where there is light. Also beware of the mosquito s. The rich vegetation mixed with the water is a lethal combination. Even in December I got several bites. Staff are very friendly and the location is great.
Wonderful location & friendly staff. Loved the courtyard and plenty of room in the quadruple; w/ two bedrooms (1 w/ twin beds & 1 w/ American sized king bed, not easy to find in Europe). Rooms were simple and clean. We would stay here again!
This is no chain hotel. It is unique, lovely and interesting - great view from the roof terrace. We had two double rooms and a shared bathroom, what we hadn't realised was that the bathroom was in the smaller bedroom. Not ideal ... Staff v helpful. Location good as always had a stroll to/from wherever we were going and could vary route a bit and see more. Roadworks made for a difficult route to the car park.
We booked a two night stay in November 2017 and stayed in a 'Double luxury room'. The Hotel is situated in a quiet back street about 15 minutes walk from the main cathedral/tourist area of Seville. If you are travelling by car, the Hotel provide access to a secure carpark, situated about 5 mins walk from the Hotel, which costs 18 euros/night for your car. The Hotel is a good old fashioned, quite sprawling property, with a very Morrocan/Arabic feel, with four courtyard areas, surrounded by guest rooms on all sides, going up two floors, the rooms being quite individual in their character. There are several small roof terraces, although these have little or no furniture on which to relax. Our room was quite well decorated and spacious. Despite having a kitchenette area, there was no cutlery, pots, or cooking facilities, not even tea/coffee making facilities, which, for us, was very disappointing. We asked the reception staff for some boiling water to make our own tea one day, but the water was luke warm and didn't assist us at all. The shower in our bathroom was powerful and the water nice and hot, but a poor shower tray design meant that the water ran onto the floor and flooded the bathroom. The heating controls were good and the room warmed up really quickly during our chilly November stay, making it very comfortable. Breakfast cost 12 euros each and consisted of a relatively modest choice of cereals, breads, fruit, boiled eggs and luke warm bacon and mini sausages. For us we felt this was pretty poor value for money. Staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, we could not fault them at all. So if you are looking for a modern, high spec Hotel with excellent facilities, then you may do better to look elsewhere, but if you want a real feel for Seville and emerse yourself in a 'no frills' traditional Hotel, then the casa Imperial might be right up your street. We would rate it a 3* Hotel, rather than the 4* as advertised and 'reasonable' value for money.
gorgeous courtyards - hideous dirty outdated bathrooms. We stayed here in high help. season and paid over $300 for a dark dated room with a dirty dysfunctional bathroom. Tiles are missing, the peeling cement bath is painted with a waterproof paint that is so pockmarked that you wear flip flops in the shower to protect yourself. The tiles around the sink are filthy and the valve in the bidet faucet didn't work. On the first night, we never got our room cleaned - the manager apologized and explained that they were 'very busy'. We carried our own suitcases up the final two flights of narrow stairs without any help.
We stay in this traditional 4 star hotel for 2 nights in October. The hotel is off a small quiet street. When you go through the little door into the hotel reception area you enter a delightful hotel. It has 4 courtyards with hotel rooms off them. Two of these are protected in the heat of the day with shades which make them a delightful cool area to sit after a day walking around Seville. Another of the courtyards had a plunge pool which can use to cool your weary feet. We were greeted by a very efficient, well spoken receptionist who carried our bags to our room. We had booked a deluxe double and were shown to the very top of the hotel up a small staircase. This is not a hotel for people with mobility issues as there no lifts and lots of small steps. Our room was spacious with a sitting area as well as it's own bedroom and a bathroom with a huge shower. It was air conditioned which was lovely as it was hotter than expected for the time of the year. There was also a spiral staircase up to the roof with our own terrace, however there were only a couple of uncomfortable chairs and a table, maybe sun loungers could be added for future residents comfort. We didn't have breakfast as it was not offered within the price of the hotel room, but we walked into Seville and found coffee and pastries and ate these watching the world go by. The hotel is a good 15 minutes walk form the town centre, I would not like to be any further out. We visited the Real Alcázar de Sevilla which was amazing and can be booked on line before you arrive in Seville in order to miss the queues. We also visited the Cathedral, Bull ring, University and the Plaza de España (equivalent to Alexandra Palace), all beautiful and interesting places to go. The ladies in the Tourist Information shop near the Cathedral were very helpful and pointed us in the direction of good tapas bars where the Spanish eat. A great visit to Seville.
Myself and my girlfriend we're heading off a weeks holiday in Spain, primarily for a wedding on the coast but ahead of heading south we wanted to extend our trip. It was our first time in Seville though other areas of Spain are very familiar to me. Hotel Casa Imperial was perfect, located very close to the centre and easy to get to from the airport/railway station we had a wonderful stay. Much to our surprise our room had its own private roof terrace which made the whole occasion even better, the staff were great and the room was perfect for our needs.
The positives: The hotel is clean. There is good air conditioning in the rooms. The hotel can provide secure parking at an additional cost a short walk away. A potentially nice period building with rooms off traditional courtyards. The negatives: Everything is tired and dated and run down. The furniture is old and not in a good antique way - the bedroom sofas were worn, a leg fell off the bed etc. etc. It is located in the old part of the city but not a good bit. You can tell when you are close to the hotel when arriving by foot due to the stench of urine and dog mess in the street outside. It is dark - they ask you to keep the shutters closed - why when there is good air conditioning - probably because they don't want you to see how badly in need of a coat of paint the exterior is? That said the interior is just as desperately in need of a makeover. The bathroom facilities are awful. The shower did no more than dribble and it is one of those 'over the bath' heads which didn't stay up so you either had to hold it or crouch down. The hand wash basins aren't even in the bathroom so you after using the toilet you have to go to a kitchenette area to wash your hands. There is a standard size domestic fridge in the room which is far to big, had nothing in it and is noisy all night - we pulled ours out and unplugged it. There are no hot drink making facilities in the room. Poor lighting throughout. There was a very helpful member of staff on duty when we arrived the rest were not really interested. Our rooms (x3) were not ready at check in time. All in all it was a poor experience and we literally used the hotel as a place to sleep. Such wasted potential, it isn't cheap to stay here but it is obvious that very little revenue is invested back into the property. Having explored Seville and poked our heads into other hotels we realised what a poor choice we had made.
Best hotel experience in ages! Not comparable to the 'standard' hotels of so many business trips. Very old beautiful building with small courtyards, beatifully decorated in style, big rooms with antique furniture. Style and character, what else do you need? Oh yes, location: walking distance to everything you want to see in Sevilla. Breakfast was nice, and the staff were very friendly and helpfull. And while you're there, have a look to Sevilla from the nice roof terrace
