Our Junior Suite (El Cuba) was surprisingly unique including its cute French balcony that gave us a great view of the iconic bell tower of the Cathedral. The location of this hotel is the biggest plus if you are looking for a perfect starting point for self guided walking tours. In order to arrive at the Alcazar and Cathedral you leave the front door of Las Casas de la Juderia and wander through the wonderful little side streets of Seville. After a full day of tapas bars and touring, you are never far from your comfortable room. If, after all that Iberian ham, you need some superb Italian, try the restaurant just a few doors down, La Gallina Bianca.
Lovely hotel. Straight away I had to ask for help as the padlock on my case had jammed and in a flash the maintenance man (Antonio I think) had got it off for me. I used to live in Andalucia and I couldn't believe how quickly it was sorted!
Beds big and comfy. Beautiful bathroom. Free wifi and safe in room.
We actually picked this hotel because it has parking, but it was located very near everything in the old town. Great location, we walked along the river, to the cathedral and palace, shopping and the Tirana district. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and arranged front row seats for flamengo dancers. The bull ring is a few blocks and the tapas bars are great in this area.
"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!
Seville is a fascinating city. The Hotel Dona Maria is a gem. It is located right off the square of the Cathedral. It is so conveniently located that you don't need to take a taxi.
The staff was so helpful and courteous. They gave us suggestions for dinner and the flamenco show/dinner.
The only problem was finding the hotel. It is so difficult driving a car through the old part of the city, one way streets, pedestrian ways, etc. Once you find the hotel you are very pleased. This is the surprise of Seville!
We stayed in a cathedral facing room with a balcony, had an extremely positive experience. The staff were very responsive and helpful and the hotel and room were in great shape and clean. For a weekend getaway for a couple, the room and hotel were an ideal experience.
