We decided to take a short break just before Christmas and travelled to Seville. The reviews of the Becquer hotel were very good so we chose that and were not disappointed.
The location was very good, about a ten minute walk to the Cathedral, the Alcazar and about five minutes from the main shopping.
The room was spacious and clean.
Breakfast was very good having most of the elements of an English breakfast, sausage, bacon, fried eggs, mushrooms and sometimes beans, plus lots of cold cuts to make up a continental breakfast and an abundance of fresh fruits and pastries.
The best hotel we have stayed in abroad and possibly the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The rating of 5 does not sufficiently reflect the warmth and sincerity of the staff or the excellent level of décor and cleanliness. Breakfast lived up to the hotel's 5 star rating and left nothing to be desired. We intend to return to Seville next year and without hesitation will fit it around availability of this hotel.
"Going to Seville - Here's where you should stay..."
Initially our arrival was delayed due to missing a connection but Jose Maria reassured us that he would be there to greet us. Although the hour was late, and our bags heavy, Jose Maria welcomed us warmly before showing us to our suite and giving us the wifi code - he must have seen my paper filled briefcase. I felt most spoilt throughout our stay. Aquilas5 is modern yet comfortable and its central location made getting anywhere, easy. The rooms are delightfully quiet with heavy curtains - so much so it was easy to sleep almost until noon. On leaving for my tango lesson, Susanna greeted me with a small bouquet of flowers - I have my own floral shop and was delighted at seeing fresh tuberose - it was a beautiful, thoughtful touch. I fully enjoyed the kitchenette complete with toaster, coffee maker and a fridge filled with simple necessities. P.S. the coffee was fantastic. The bathroom with fresh towels and toiletries and the cool marble floor in our living area added an elegant touch. From the hospitality to the design and functionality, the numeric entry code instead of cumbersome keys - every detail has been thought through. I would highly recommend Aguilas5 SevillaSuites to anyone staying in Seville. I am already planning a return trip but this time for longer!
