Appreciate hotel recommendation in Seville. Will be there next week Nov 22-24 (2 nights). I checked: Rey Alfonso & Kivir, hotel Casa 1800 they are a bit expensive for us. Ayre hotel has terrible/bad reviews. Hotel Becquer so-so reviews but left only option. Anyone has another suggestion would be extremely helpful, but I need an answer today Nov 17. Thank you.
Have you been checking booking.com? It looks like there are lots of things booked, but still several options available when you filter for ratings at 8 / 10 or better. I typically check Booking for overall rating, location, and score, and double-check with trip advisor or Google.
And to be honest, two hotels you mentioned as having bad reviews seem to be reviewed pretty positively online, especially Hotel Becquer (4.5 / 5 on TripAdvisor and Google, 9.2/10 on Booking). While every hotel can have a few unsatisfied customers, I know I'd feel okay about making that booking even if I saw a few.
It’s pretty late but we loved the Amadeus. They usually book way ahead.
I second the recommendation for the Amadeus. We really enjoyed our stay there.
Amadeus is booked the the days he’s looking at.
We stayed in the Hotel Becquer in October 2017. I would gladly stay there again. Our room was large and comfortable, with an enormous bathroom. It's an easy walk to the Cathedral and the Alcazar.
The staff was extremely helpful and patient. I haven't been reading its current reviews, but I was surprised to hear they were mediocre.
Zenit Sevilla.........enjoyed it since its an easy walk across river to center and great local neighborhood bars/restaurants/market.
Thanks a lot to all the above replies and suggestion. We prefered Amadeus, but it was full booked on our dated. We settled for Becquer and hope it will be good. Thanks again. I love this site....so helpful. Sara Yoel
We stayed for three nights in the delightful first floor apartment of Casa Palacio San Joseat Calle San Jose 7 and it was a great choice. The cost for Nov 6-9 on Booking.com was $119/night. The location was perfect, as all of the major sights were within easy walking distance. We were met by a member of the homeathomes team, who provided a thorough and helpful orientation and was available to answer questions throughout our stay and to order a taxi for us at check-out. She also left orange juice, milk, water, coffee, and tea, and other housekeeping supplies as well as laundry pods and other items needed during our stay.
The property felt very secure and was entered through a locked wooden door and then a locked ironwork gate. Our apartment was off of the central courtyard, which was beautifully decorated, and the apartment itself gave us room to spread out and relax. There was a living room with a sofa, tables, and a TV; a well-equipped kitchen with coffee pot, microwave, cooktop, sink, dishwasher, and table; a pretty bedroom with a comfortable bed and pillows and an antique armoire; and a bathroom with toilet and bidet and a tub/shower that had good water pressure, plenty of hot water, and lovely toiletries. An elevator carried us up to two large rooftop terraces with views over the city, and to a common area with a washing machine and dryer that we used to launder our clothes.
We highly recommend this property and would gladly return for a future stay.
We couldn't get into the Amadeus either - but the Becquer was our favorite hotel in Spain.
Have a great trip!
