I was travelling on a long weekend break with my mother, we were looking for some decent cheap accomodation for a few nights within easy reach of the sights. I took the previous reviews with a pinch of salt, given that some people do seem to expect a 5 star hotel for a 2 star price! The taxi that the hotel arranged for us to the airport costs only around 24 euro (so about 4 euro more than if you stayed in the centre of Seville)
I was extremely pleased with the hotel, our twin room was much larger than expected and was set up properly as a twin with side tables etc. It was very clean and bright. We also had a large bathroom with good shower etc and toiletries could be provided on request (we had brought our own). The room was nice and quiet. We were a bit chilly on the first night and so we asked for extra blankets the next day, which were promptly provided.
The bus left from right outside the hotel and took about 1/2 hour to get into the main part of town (it stopped exactly at the right place). The busses apparently ran till 11.30 pm but we did not go out later than 9 so I cannot confirm that. The receptionist sold us a 10-journey bus ticket (a swipe car like London Oyster cards) which you could both use by tapping twice on boarding the bus, this was only around 8 euros so our transport costs for the whole 3-night stay were only 2 taxis (airport) and the one bus card, excellent value.
Breakfast was perfectly adequate, especially considering the price paid for the room (scrambled eggs, bacon, those funny frankfurter type sausages(!) and also pastry, rolls, cereal etc).
The only thing I would say is that I wouldn't eat dinner at the hotel, we had dinner there on the first night (being lazy) and it was very over-priced for the quality of the food, there are so many nice restaurants in town that its certainly better to eat out or bring something back to your room from the supermarket if on a tight budget.
The staff were all pleasant and polite and spoke sufficient English.
I think that if you intend to be out very late in the evening on several nights you may prefer to stay in the centre of town, but otherwise this is an excellent budget hotel.
