14 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We have stayed in top 5 star hotels around the world and how this hotel claims to be in the "Top 100" mystifies us. We had to change rooms. The rooms were smelly and the furniture looked like grandmas old stuff. The bed was old and very uncomfortable. If you have trouble walking be warned. We had to take a lift to a lower level and walk through a twisting tunnel for about 2 mins to get another lift to take us back up to ground level. Then it was up and down several stairs to get to the room. We hated it. Dont be fooled by the "lovely" photos. "

Having just returned from a week away in...
"Having just returned from a week away in Seville, I have got to say this is THE nicest hotel I have ever stayed in all my life! It is only classed as a 4 star but on arrival I was truly stunned by the elegance for this hotel The entrance hall was amazing; being a former Duke's house had all original decors and looked grand. It had a pool and roof terrace which was all solid wood laid and was beautiful and peaceful is the middle of this humble town The rooms themselves were amazing, with excellent views from the many windows and really nice (and expensive) furnishings. The staff there were so friendly and helped the best they could, and could speak fluent English. The best bit was they didn't stand waiting for tips all the time which is great when you've just spent Â£330 to rent a room only for a week, but all in all it was worth every penny and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to visit this city with a class hotel."

Seville provides the quintessential Span...
"Seville provides the quintessential Spanish experience- flamenco, bullfights, tapas, wine and al fresco dining. Staying at the 4star Las Casa De La Juderia gives you the ideal base to explore this beautiful city. Situated off the main road down a cobbled street in the old town you will find this quaint hotel. It offers typical but uniquely styled Spanish living, with water features, courtyards and excellent service you wouldnât want more. The friendly relaxed and prompt service was a joy. The hotel itself has a wonderful restaurant however there is no need for its use. The old town of Seville comes alive at night with a vast array of outside dining. During the day the impressive architecture of Seville is breathtaking. The highlight being the gothic cathedral. The cathedral is the hub of activity during the night with many newly wedded couples having photos in the square before embarking on a horse-drawn carriage for a tour of the city. There are plenty of local bars and clubs, too many to choose from at times but all offering excellent cuisine and music variety. The only drawback of Seville is the heat in the height of the summer. However its the perfect excuse for what the Spanish do best 'Siesta'. I would recommend Seville to anyone looking for the real Spanish experience."

This small hotel is a converted mansion ...
"This small hotel is a converted mansion in the Jewish quarter of Seville, situated within easy walking distance of all of the old cityâs main sites and attractions. We visited in winter - during the ridiculously cold snap that hit Spain this year - and, despite the fact that the hotel is an old traditional building, there was no problem whatsoever with the cold, as each room has a heater/air conditioning unit. The rooms are a bit on the small side but are very comfortable and have lots of storage space for luggage. They are all equipped with TVs and minibar. The bathrooms are en suite and ours was huge! Plenty of soft towels, hairdryers, bath/shower, loo, bidet etc. We did not eat at the hotelâs restaurants but we did hear very good things about the evening meals, which are accompanied by traditional Spanish music. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is kept in excellent condition. There didnât seem to be any English-speaking staff. All in all a very good 4 star hotel and excellent value for money."

Went with fears, loved every minute
"Stayed there in October 2004 for one night. Great location, beautiful hotel, very very friendly staff. I read the reviews and was a bit worried. i decided that since the location is great and the price is reasonable I will take the risk.. But.. the staff was super friendly, they helped us park the car, carried our bags, supplied us with info, when I complained about some noise (some renovations in the room next to us) they stopped the noise immediatly... Very nice room, great bathroom. Super hotel."

I am surprised about the bad reviews! I loved it!
"Well, I am really surprised about the bad comments. I had booked my trip based on the positive reviews and was very happy with my room. I suppose it depends on the room! I was travelling alone and had a good size room (although I did have to climb over the bed to open the window, but not a big deal as it opened space in the room by having the bed in front of the window). The bathroom was larger than any I have seen in Europe and I actually had a walk in closet! My room looked onto a small courtyard and with the windows open I could smell the jasmin. The location was great, with a great little restaurant in the nearby plaza. I found my room to be clean and the staff extremely nice and attentive. I am sorry for those who had a bad experience, but I would come again based on my experience. I especially loved the open patios, courtyards, fountains and nitches where one could sit and enjoy a book and a glass of wine!"

Definitely a Winner
"We just got back from a 2-week trip to Spain and Portugal where we stayed at 7 hotels and this was our favorite without a doubt! The location was excellent; it was a 5 minute walk to the Cathedral and Alcazar and is in front of several restaurants. The hotel staff was very welcoming and accommodating and all spoke English. The minute you enter the hotel it's as if you are in another era. As typical with the Moorish influence, there are tiles, reflective ponds, and plants and greenery galore throughout the entire hotel. And, the rooms are delightful and were the most romantic of any hotel. The bed was a queen size and was not comprised of two twin beds put together as is typical in Europe! It was a beautiful 4 poster bed with marvelous bedding. The bathroom was incredible with all the amenities and even a jacuzzi tub. We are so glad we read previous reviews and hope we can pass along the same advice we received - stay at this hotel! Lastly, we used 2 Bancotel vouchers at 50 euros each so ended up paying 100 euros for the room! (The vouchers can be purcased in books of 5 for 250 euros via bancotel.)"

My favorite hotel
"This was by far my favorite hotel in Spain. It was so romantic. I had the best meal here. The staff was great. The room was beautiful. The air-conditioning was great! This city gets hot so this is important. If you visit Seville, this is a must!"

A great delusion...
"Me and my wife have to stay in this hotel for four nights; the room isn't a 4 stars room. It was very small, and very very dirty. Who give 4 stars at this hotel?"

"Cannot recommend this hotel. Setting is superb (lovely courtyards) but the the rooms are awful. Stayed on 2 occasions, first room stank of damp & had cockroach problem. Second room had dirty bathroom, damp patches on the ceiling & things falling of the walls. Our friend couldn't lock his door & his bed collapsed. Shame because superb location & friendly staff."

Unique, romantic hotel!
"My husband and I spent one night in this charming hotel this past August. It was recommended by a friend and all the positive reviews on this site convinced us to book it, we were so happy we did. This hotel has many intimate courtyards laden with ceramics and flowers. We were very happy with our room, it was huge with a four poster bed and a beautiful marble bathroom, the shower could fit 6 people! The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. We had dinner at the hotel outside on their main terrace, it was a bit pricey , but the ambiance was so romantic and the food was good. Breakfast was AMAZING! We highly recommend it. It was located in an area of the hotel that gave you a choice of 5 or 6 different rooms to eat in, each decorated uniquel. If the huge buffet was not enough they gave you a choice of an a la carte menu to pick from. We stayed in room 225, but the stff is glad to accomodate your stay with one of many fine rooms. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the cathedral and the alcazar, and cabs are cheap and easily accessible from the street for anywhere else you would want to visit. All in all, we higly recommend this hotel. BOOK IT, you won't regret it!"
