As I've always wanted to go to Seville I thought well it is my 40th so while on the Costa del Sol we can hire a car & go.....(we hired a Fiat 500...too big for the streets of Seville)......when we arrived I had to stand in line for 15 minutes to be served while the guy with glasses on reception tried to sell every tour that Seville offered to Americans....they bought 2 🙈🙈....when I eventually got served i told him we wanted to use the car park....no...it's full...he said....so here is the thing....I booked this hotel because it offers parking...well it doesn't....they won't let you park in their carpark if your there for 1 night....they send you to hotel Americas €30.85 for 9 hours.....the room was a prison cell & the place was a maze...to be honest I'd never want to go back....simply awful....
We choose this hotel mainly because of it's close proximity to the old part of Seville and because it had a car park for our rental car. The hotel seemed to be in a very safe part of town and was only a 10-15 minute walk to the major sites. We couldn't have been more satisfied with the location. The car park was small and reached though a automobile elevator. Getting into and out of the car park requires a skilled driver, and a car of modest to small size. Don't go there with an SUV. The room was very clean, well lit, with satisfactory furnishings. We had requested a double bed when we reserved the room and were surprised to find twin beds in the room instead. But, in the end, we decided it worked out better for us. The twin beds were close together and effectively larger than a double. We probably slept better as a result. The common areas of the hotel was in very good shape, too. Very clean, with nice marble floors, quality furnishings and a fairly attentive staff. The only reason I'm giving it three stars instead of five is because we were unhappy with how the hotel handled our credit card payment for the room. We booked the hotel using booking.com and were quoted a price in Euros. Upon check-in, the hotel took our credit card and, without asking, used a third party currency exchange service to convert the Euro quote to US Dollars. The net result is that we paid nearly double the currency conversion fee that Visa would have charged us if the hotel billed us in Euros instead of them converting it to US Dollars. Whether this was intentional or accidental is hard to say. When we checked-out and paid the additional fee for parking our car, we were asked if we wanted to pay in Euros or US Dollars. I recommend you pay close attention when making any payment. Probably good advise for anything you do in another country.
Considering how much I paid for this hotel, I was pleasantly surprised with more or less everything! Staff all speak perfect English, very helpful. Even when you get in at 4am for the 3rd night in a row. Can't fault them. Room was basic for 4*, but had a lovely marble bathroom, outside window, clean, tidy and the cheapest minibar I've ever seen. Can't fault it really! Air con worked well. Wifi only fault, it was a bit moody. Great location too, within 5 mins taxi of the train station (25 mins walk) and 10 mins to the main city centre attractions (right next to Alameda de Hercules in one direction and the Metropol Parasol in another). Recommended.
Firstly the information in TripAdvisor is misleading as the hotel no longer has a bar, restaurant or offers room service. That said it is a good hotel. We had a standard room which was perfectly comfortable. The air conditioning worked well, the beds were fine, there was a well stocked minibar at reasonable prices, adequate storage for clothes and a reasonable shower. Like many hotels the electrical supply is turned on by putting the room key card into a slot. Use any old card to keep the air conditioning on during the day. As is often the case there were rather fewer power points than ideal. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a drinks station with tea & coffee available 24 hours. There are two courtyards where one can sit peacefully and relax (unless they are full of smokers). The breakfast buffet is really rather good. The scrambled eggs were at the top end of those I have experienced, the tortilla and onion tart are lovely, excellent selection of meats, cheeses and pastries. The fruit selection is a bit disappointing and the muesli is so sweet it is inedible. The coffee is rather ordinary. The hotel has a great location. It is very quiet and tranquil. It is only a few minutes walk from all the major attractions and there are numerous restaurants and bars nearby.
Visited Seville at the end of March/beginning of April ... SUPERB weather (33* one day !) - chose the Cervantes off the Internet & was DEFINITELY not disappointed. Very friendly, helpful staff, excellent room (126, in the 'courtyard'), TERRIFIC breakfasts each day. Also, a tip ... Suntransfers provided the transfers to/from the airport to the hotel at very reasonable cost (my wife & I were travelling with another couple). Seville is a fabulous city, and Cervantes is located only a 10-minute stroll past numerous alleyways & shops to the Cathedral (tomb of Christopher a Columbus) & Real Alcazar, a MUST to visit. Choose Hotel Cervantes & enjoy the ambience of a beautiful city.
We stayed here as part of our Andalusian tour. We had no trouble finding it with sat nav. We parked in basement which is extra €19 a night but parking is hard to come by in Seville so we didn't mind. Room was small but comfy bed , safe and a fridge. Complimentary fruit. Buffet breakfast was very nice, good selection. The courtyards were lovely for sitting in but no roof access. Walking distance to everything. Most staff spoke good English and were helpful. On our last day we hired bikes via the hotel which gave our feet a rest!
We arrived early at the hotel and the police let us in and then cut off all traffic into the old city due to religious processions due later that day. We had a room on the 2nd floor but they have several elevators. We parked in the hotel parking under the hotel. They charged an extra E19 for the parking, We were walking distance to everything in the old city. The breakfast buffet was very good and the staff were very nice and everyone spoke English. My only problem was that it was very expensive and they gave us a towel that had a huge hole in the middle.
Nice hotel, we stayed 4 nights, larger than it appears, nice interior courtyards which would be lovely in summer, our room was comfortable, clean and quiet on the 2nd floor, several small elevators made life easier, staff were pleasant. Breakfast was good with choice of continental or full. Location is reasonably central, about 5 to 10 minute walk to the shopping and bar areas. The parking is "interesting" where you have to maneuver the car into an elevator that the front desk staff have to operate for you, none of which is easy or quick so it's best to just park it and leave it there until departure.
I was very well impressed to stay at this hotel. Rooms are comfortable and clean. There is a coffee station during all day. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. All these together with the great location made us to be very happy during our stay. The only thing you should review before to go there is to double check the location. Sevilla has many streets that run just for a couple of blocks and Cervantes Street is one of those.
Hotel Cervantes in Sevaille is a nice little hotel located in the Old Town – thus, the street is narrow and quite difficult to manoeuvre if you are getting there by your own car. I saw that there is a basement parking provided by the hotel, which is not the norm for other small hotels in this area which I saw when walking around. Within 10 mins walking you will come to the main shopping area, and a further 10 to 15 mins will take you to the Cathedral area. Plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance of the hotel. Checking in and out was quick with no hassle – Jose Manuel was really helpful – good services by him. The deco in the common area is really nice ie the lobby, walkway – they even have an open patio with garden in the middle of the hotel where you can sit and enjoy your drink and have a smoke, if you are a smoker. However, the room is a bit basic and quite old and dim lit as well – nothing to shout about. The cleanliness of the room is also a suspect – I think they can do a better job with housekeeping. The toilet is OK and my room comes with a bathtub. Although it is a double bed, but I suspect that the mattresses were actually 2 singles being put together on the double bed since I can feel the side hardness of the mattress in the middle of the bed. The pillow was too soft. There is no coffee making facilities in the room, but you can have coffee and tea on the ground floor – its complimentary. Breakfast was adequate – you can have pastries, brads, fruits, cereals, cheese etc. I think for this sort of hotel, the breakfast is acceptable. I would think that most people staying in this hotel around the area would spend most of the time outside, exploring the heritage area or out for shopping and having meals. As such, the shortcomings of the room may be acceptable.
