Quirky but charming 4 star hotel
This hotel has received mixed reviews on various travel sites, but we took a chance and were happy we did.
Yes, it's quirky -- made up of several old conjoined casas, you will, indeed, have to go up and down and around to find your room. It took the better part of three trips till we had the route down pat -- but that's part of the charm. The underground "grotto" passage is hysterical, complete with roman bath and faux inscriptions. Silly, but fun! This isn't a cookie-cutter modern hotel. There are, in fact, several elevators in the hotel so you can get away with very few stairs if you are so inclined...but you may have to get out one elevator, walk down the "hall", and into another. We never used them (but noted the bellmen did!)
The room itself was large, well-appointed as you'd expect for a 4 star hotel; a/c, cable tv, room safe, huge marble bath with jacuzzi and separate shower. Really comfortable bed and we slept like logs. Our room (#204) had three large windows and overlooked the little alley between two of the casas; it was very quiet.
And yes, attempting to approach the hotel by car is daunting ... forget about trying to maneuveur your car into the narrow alley, and let their porters do it (one will run out and get the car for you).
Perfect location right in the heart of things, five minutes walk to the main plaza/Cathedral/Alcazar, one block from the best flamenco at Casa des Memorias, two blocks from Modesto and the best coquinas. We paid 168 euros/night, plus 16 euros/night for parking. The hotel's website is awful; book through an agency. We used Seville5 and had no problems.
