6 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"A great location - in walking distance of everything and with a real buzzing atmosphere in the local area. Good hotel, clean and typical 4*. Buffet breakfast was OK but after 5 days became dull with not very good coffee. Ask for a room overlooking the street - the opening doors to the balcony give air - the first room we were given overlooked a wall and was rather claustrophobic. Wouldn't knock the hotel at all but if we returned to Seville we would probably try somewhere different just for variety. Seville itself was wonderful with a real party atmosphere even in November with the temperatures in the mid 70s. Flamenco evenings are held just around the corner (12 euros per person) and the boat cruise is located nearby (14 euros per person and a pleasant enough way to spend an hour). The tapas bar outside the hotel is very good and reasonably priced. A day trip to Cordoba was very tiring (2 hours each way on the coach - 14 euros each return) but on balance worth it to see the Mezquita. Guide books recommend Casa Robles for Dinner - wouldn't recommend it, at least not the restaurant - the tapas outside looked OK. Not too expensive but over hyped and lacking atmosphere with mediocre food. We found the overall prices in Seville very good, probably the best value Eurpoean city we have been to recently (Rome, Venice, Prague) and it is well worth a visit. The bus from the airport (2 euros) was more fun than a taxi and dropping off in Puerto de Jerez is only a 15 minute stroll to the hotel. The taxi back to the airport from outside the hotel cost 27 euros. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and you can do far worse than booking in at the Becquer."

"Would definitely recommend this hotel. Stayed for 3 nights in October 2005. Staff helpful and courteous. Room large and comfortable with lovely bathroom, though air conditioning slighly noisy. Had room at front of hotel overlooking road and needed to keep windows shut at night to keep out street noise, though my friends staying in the inner rooms overlooking courtyard said their rooms were very quiet. Very central location, easy walk to main attractions or to hop on to one of the open topped bus tours of the city (worth doing and very reasonably priced). Tickets can be bought at hotel. Located fairly near the bridge going over to the Triana area - also worth a visit for the ceramic shops (and shoes!)."

"This is an all round average hotel. It's clean etc, staff are very friendly, location is good, but it's quite old. This means that when someone in one of the rooms surrounding you is having a shower, it sounds like a car is being driven through you room! In saying this I would CONSIDER staying here again - there is a new section of the hotel out the back and a room there would probably be better. Don't go for the B&B option - there are 3 or 4 coffee shops around the hotel that do a good breakfast for a fraction of the cost."

"I read the reviews on Hotel Becquer on tripadvisor.com and finally decided to book it - no disappointment! Definitely the best one can expect from a city hotel. Although the architecture looks quite boring and a bit shabby from the outside, the interior with dark wooden furniture, plenty of mirrors and nice carpets looks wonderful. We had a spacious room which was newly furnished and clean and had all the comfort you could wish for, air conditioning as well. The bathroom was spacious, too. The room was very quiet at night, the beds extremely large and comfortable. We didnÂ´t have breakfast in the morning. The hotel is located in a perfect area if you want to get around in Seville. Most of the attractions (cathedral, real alcazar) are only about 15 minutes away. Right in the street where Hotel Becquer is situated, youÂ´ll find some restaurants, fast food chains, coffee shops and even a El Corte Ingles. The main shopping streets (pedestrian) in Sevilla are only 300 m away. A note on the staff: very charming and helpful. The location is pleasant, so is the hotel. I highly recommand Hotel Becquer!"

Had a great time staff very friendly and helpful
"My family and I just returned from Spain and we spent a few days in Seville at the Bequer hotel. It is a very well located hotel, with nice simple rooms. The staff is very gracious and the breakfast in the hotel was a good start to the day. Visiting the sights in Seville from our hotel was very easy, we are New Yorkers and walking the city was natural. The hotel provided a good map, We really only took the taxi once, as the temps began to soar around 1pm. I would advise people to be inside from then until about 5. One word of caution is don't eat at the Casablanca resturant it is bad and expensive, the worst we had in Spain they sell it by saying the King of Spain ate there, well in my opinion he must have bad taste."
