Had a wonderful night at the hotel--WIFI worked beautifully in the room, and slept very well there. Had a bath and shower and was able to watch CNN. The location was perfect for sight-seeing, everything within reach. The reception was very helpful and spoke perfect English. I would return to this hotel on my next visit.

I was only in Sevilla for a couple days but the staff, including the owner Francisco, was incredibly nice. Francisco speaks great English and was very happy to show us all the best places to go. His restaurant suggestions were on point, and he was very kind and helpful when I became ill at the end of my trip. The room are the perfect size and very smartly decorated. Not to mention that this hotel is literally a two minute walk from the amazing Cathedral of Sevilla. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Can only rave about this hotel. The staff, service and accomodations were excellent. Email queries were responded to immediately and upon arrival we recieved a full orientation of the hotel and surroundings including excellent restaurant and attraction suggestions. The staff made our stay so welcoming and warm. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants the feel of a smaller boutique hotel with family touch. Excellent location and water, coffee provided at no extra charge. The Alcazar, which was a 2 min walk was excellent. I would recommend the top terrace rooms- what a spectacular site at night- worth the extra few euros!

Room small, as expected, but clean and pleasant as was the bathroom with bath and shower over. Central location very close to the cathedral was perfect - and not noisy. We chose to have breakfast at nearby pavement cafes. Staff could not have been more helpful and gave us some excellent recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants/tapas bars. All in all a great 3 day break.

The Hotel is just in the center of Seville, in a pedestrian street in the shopping area, close to metrocentro (tram) stop in Plaza Nueva. Is a small hotel with a very friendly staff, the rooms are recently renewed and very clean. Only breakfast (not included) can be improved. Seville is a wonderful town, unfortunately during my stay had rained every days!

The check-in staff was absolutely wonderful. The woman who checked us in gave us a very detailed map of the city with recommendations of sites, bars and restaurants and she even booked us a flamenco show our first evening which was an incredible experience. The room was rather small and we could only get a room on the first floor which was a little noisy but overall it was a great stay!

Room 13 at The Alminar may be the noisiest room we have ever booked. All street noise and a door that you had to slam to close. The lady at reception assured us that all of their rooms were the same and "you can't find a quiet room near the center of any large European city" We paid 120 Euro fee and left. We walked half a block and got 3 good nights sleep at The Hotel San Francisco in larger quieter room for 56 Euros per night.

The hotel was located on a pedestrian only street right behind the Cathedral. You are centrally located to all attractions and restaurants. The rooms were spacious by European standards. Our only difficulty was in finding the hotel by automobile even with a gps and then parking. I suggest that you park outide the center and taxi in. Some of the views talk about street noise and the cathedral bells- but in January with the windows closed we had no problems woth noise.

Terrible experience in this hotel due to the infestation of flies in room 3.When complained Manager just told us that they weren't mosquitos and won't bite!We must have killed at least 100 on our 1st night and when we woke up to just as many the next morning we decided to leave.We were booked for another night which hotel didn't charge but really they shouldn't have charged us at all as the experience was so bad. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone!

The hotel is in a great location. It is just around the corner from the cathedral and Alcazar. The staff are all very nice, very friendly and knowledgable of everything. This is a three star hotel but they really act like a higher ranked hotel. They even had stamps and mailed my post cards.(Some 4 star hotels do not do that.) The room was very clean and looked exactly like the photos - contemporary and simple.

The hotel has a friendly and competent staff. Hotel manager Francisco was delightful to encounter and very informative about both the area and the local culture. Maria and Jose as well as the other employees who worked the desk were always helpful and cheery. My room was clean and tasteful. It's in a great location - a little too great. Always seemed to be lots of loud conversations or arguments late at night in the alley near the hotel's front door. Not the hotel's fault, obviously, but a bit of a nuisance just the same.

We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time. Brilliant location in the centre, yet quiet enough (pedestrian street). The hotel staff is extremely helpful (and fun) and gave us many useful tips - as well as some good laughs! We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as we preferred the buzz of the nearby bar. We had the best meals at the Taberna del Alabardero hotel school on Calle Zaragoza - lunchtime menu del dia was absolutely the best value for money.

I spent 3 nights at Alminar hotel in Feb. 2008. All staff members were very friendly and helpful, especially the manager Fransisco who was generously informative. His tips proved to be very valuable indeed. There is free coffee/tea service in the small but tasteful public area, and the first bottle of water in the minibar is also free. Excellent location and the rooms pleasant and tasteful. I highly recommend this hotel.

It is a very small hotel located on a laneway les than a block from the Cathederal.Altough it is located in what appears to be an old building it is all new inside. Space is at a premium but well used. Rooms are tight but well organized with a very stylish bathroom. All items in room worked and staff was very helpful.

We can deffinitly recommend the Alimar. The staff was very nice and the rooms are small but in great shape. The location is right in the center of Sevilla, which has the downside that you hardly can get there by car. The only negative point that we saw, is that there is a contruction in the house across which was creating some noise. Go there!

Es un hotel realmente excelente en la relación costo beneficio. Excelente recepción y atención, excelente ubicación y muy agradable y familiar ambiente. La habitación sencilla es pequeña pero cómoda y suficiente, el baño es precioso y funcional. Sólo recomendaría ampliar un poco el espacio del comedor, que auqnue agradable resulta insuficiente y prácticamente "pegado" al elevador. Definitivamente volvería a hospedarme en este hotel.
