Hotel in Seville

Any recommendations on a hotel in Seville? I've read some people liked Hotel Becquer and some liked La Rabida. Any other suggestions? We are trying to stay around $100 - give or take a bit. Thanks.

Suzanne,
Try Las Casas de la Juderia or its sister hotel, Las Casas de los Mercaderes. You can view them at www.sol.com (when it's operating properly). They belong to a four member group called Hoteles Hispano-Alemana in Seville, and the current tariff for a double runs around 14,000-15,000 pts.
If you do a text search, they've been recommended fairly recently on this Forum.

Suzanne,

This is not necessarily a real suggestion for lodging - - I've never stayed there, it may be stodgy, and if you can afford it, perhaps you wouldn't be researching your own accommodations on the Internet anyhow. But I ventured into the Alfonso XIII a few years ago, just to look around, and I went on to have a fruit salad, served in china and silver by a guy in a tux. He treated me as if I were the kind of rich and famous folks who actually can afford to stay there. I suppose it cost me 10 bucks but it seemed like such a treat and it was almost as good an "atttraction" as the Alcazar itself. Even if you just walk in and look around, I recommend you not overlook this palace. It really IS the "superornate and superexpensive bastion of glanour" the guidebook says it is (whoops, wrong company's guidebook - - that other F*o***r guy!)
.
Best wishes,

I stayed at Casa de los Mercaderes and enjoyed it...good atmoshpere, great location. Casas de la Juderia looked even lovelier with a beautiful courtyard and tons of atmosphere.

We had our Prom in 1962 at the Alfonso XIII.....It was quite a place, and would love to stay there on an upcoming visit. Sometimes, it is worth is to spend a little extra.

Suzanne,
A correction-the two "Casas" mentioned belong to Intergroup Hotels, plus "Casa del Rey de Baeza", not quite as centrally located. The Hispano-Alemana hotel is a 5 star luxury place, "Casa Imperial". Sorry!

Anyone who wants pictures of Las Casas De la Juderia please email me. My GF and I stayed there in September and fell in love with the place.
I highly recommend it over any other place in Sevilla. Even the Alfonso hotel. If I wanted fancy schmancy I get get hotels in San Francisco which are world class as well.

Suzanne,

Another one to investigate is the Taberna del Alabardero, about five minutes from the cathedral.Small, elegant, with a great restaurant.
The Alfonso XIII is a must for an afternoon respite. Very grand, but both the Casas (especially Juderia) and the Taberna have a more intimate atmosphere.
Also, check Karen Brown Guides for reliable information on Spain. Her hotel recommendations are usually accurate.

Dear Pete,
Do not stay at the Dona Maria. My sister stayed there and had to move to a better hotel. Noisy and no charm.

Ref Hotel Dona Maria,
We stayed there last April
there are the plus and minus,
a little over priced, we had a superior room, but was nothing much.

It wasn t noisy

The hotel had some charm

The location is excellent

the buffet breakfast was expensive and not good.

On the whole, if I find something better I would not come back, but if I had to be there again i would ask again for superior rooms and have breakfast in one of the nearby cafes...which was what we end up doing.
Good luck.

I have booked the Tryp Colon for New Years (for 2 nights). Anyone stayed there?
Also, does anyone have an email address for Tabernal del Alabardero?

Finally, any good recommendations for New Year's Eve? (restaurant? other?)

Thanks!

Suzanne,

We stayed at the Hotel Becquer about three years ago. The location was excellent--on a lively street that felt very safe in the late night hours. (Unlike some sections of the Barrio which are not safe late at night.) Staff were very helpful. The rooms were just adequate-- certainly not charming. More like a Holiday Inn with old Spanish-style furniture. The food in the restaurant (we ate there on our arrival night) was not good. The buffet breakfasts were more than adequate. Even though we really liked the location, I don't think I would stay there again.

Thanks to everyone who replyed to me. We decided to book Las Casas de la Juderia! It sounds fantastic.

Alfonso was just a bit too expensive. Thanks.

We stayed at La Rabida last year and really liked it. Our room was spacious and clean with a private bathroom. The lobby was charming with a stained glass ceiling and our room overlooked a courtyard. As I recall, it was well under $100 per night. One problem, we had twin beds, but I'm sure there are more "romantic" rooms! Have fun!
