Apt rental vs hotel room in Seville in May

Jump to last reply

We will be spending 4 nights in Seville in early May 2015, and I'm looking at the accommodation options. I'm trying to keep the cost to around $150/night. I realize that the "nicer" hotels in Seville are often more than that or are somewhat lacking in either space, charm or amenities. I've narrowed my hotel choices, so far, to the standard rooms in either the Alminar hotel or the Amadeus hotel.

But I do like space and the option to have a terrace. I also would like to stay in the Santa Cruz area. I started looking at the Veo apartment rentals and found several reasonable-looking apts for costs well within my budget. They're mostly Ikea-modern, but generally spacious, and the ones I like have terraces-- one even has a private dipping pool!

I'm curious what others think about apts vs hotel stays. On one hand, a hotel has staff who are there 24/7 to help and provide suggestions and recommendations, but rooms are often small and I've read many complaints about thin walls & sound .

Apts are generally more spacious, and while there may be minimal staff around, there's generally limited service. I don't need to have much in apartment way of service, but I know it can be nice to have someone there who is available when there are questions.

Right now, I lean toward an apartment. It seems like it would be great for 4-night stay, but it could go either way at this point.

What are your thoughts?
