Reviewed 26 January 2012

We stayed here one night and the staff made this place bearable! They were friendly, helpful with directions and recommendations. Truly over the top!

The location is perfect being a couple minutes walk to the Seville Cathedral and Barrio Santa Cruz. We took the bus tour around the city which was worth it for our short stay in Seville.

Our first room was a miniature dungeon. Fortunately, they had a larger room, so we paid more to switch to a triple (family) room. The beds were barely comfortable with thin blankets and "Average European Beds" firm, coil mattresses, just average linens and uncomfortable pillows. No pillowtops here.

Not Quiet! The walls are paper thin and we heard all of our neighbors voices, kids crying etc.

I would not stay here again, but would search for another choice of hotel.

No frills, clean and comfortable sums up this hotel. It has a great location in the heart of Santa Cruz. Staff friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was adequate, in the buffet style. This being January it was quiet and a good option to plan the day ahead in the hotel without pre-booking.
Very good sleeping as no traffic noise at all, with the roller shutter down you can't even hear the pidgeon from the palm tree!
I understand the use of liquid soap, it is annoying and a bit institutional, on the plus side sponges are provided.
Oh and it is a 20 minute walk to the station, but wouldn't recommend on arrival.

I've been staying in the Alcántara on my trips to Seville for nearly 10 years. I've always been warmly welcomed by the friendly staff whose hospitality is second to none. The hotel is not only ideally situated to explore the beautiful Barrio Santa Cruz but is also close enough to visit Plaza de España, Parque María Luisa, Cathedral, Triana and the main shopping areas on foot. I'm already looking forward to my next visit in the spring!

Perfectly suited to main attractions. Fantastic restaurants around the corner. Reception staff very helpful, in particular the lady on nights whilst we were there. She was always cheerful and happy to make recommendations. Can be a little hard to find when you arrive. Good wifi. Would stay again.

A bit late with this review, but hope it might help 'budget conscious' travellers to Seville next summer. We flew to Seville from Barcelona in September and travelled to this hotel by taxi from the airport, following the instructions from the hotel when booking via email. The location couldn't be better and as other reviewers have said, all the main sights are within easy walking distance. This small hotel is amazing value for money. We stayed in a double room which was very adequate for our stay. The room was quiet at all times. The decor was bright and the room clean with a good bathroom and good shower. All the reception staff were amazingly helpful at all times. We went to the Flaminco Show in the foyer of the hotel which was very authentic and not touristy. There are many wonderful tapas bars and restaurants just down the lane. However, after a few meals we kept going back to ExtraVerde Restaurant in the beautiful tree-lined Plaza Dona Elvira. The food showcases the wonderful Spanish olive oils etc. from their shop. The presentation of food here is top-rate and the dining is in a casual setting with pricing good value. After 4 days in Seville, we felt the Barrio Santa Cruz area was the best location. The small lanes around the Barrio/Juderia area were very unique and Hotel Alcantara is a super hotel for its star rating.
