Hotel Alcantara has a great location – slap bang in the middle of the old town, just minutes away from the cathedral and some amazing places to eat. The staff were helpful and friendly, too, which is always a bonus. So far, so good...
However, the air con pumped out warm air when set to chill, an issue mentioned in other reviews, while the breakfast was simple to the point of being dull. If you like sliced ham, sliced cheese and hard boiled eggs you’ll be in heaven – you might otherwise suffer. The orange juice was good, but this is Seville so there’s no excuse there, and the rolls were decent, too. The less said about the slightly stale biscuits the better, though.
Air con aside, none of this would have mattered if the hotel hadn’t looked so tired. Small stains and peeling paint niggled – minor and easily addressed issues but quite clearly long-term concerns. With a little attention this hotel could be really good but as it stands Alcantara is resoundingly average.More
