Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Alfonso XIII

Beautiful building, needs the Westin touch

from Hetties-mum
Attended a conference here which was well run. Rooms big, but why two single beds when room for two doubles. Who sleeps in a single bed in a Westin??? It was comfortable though. Ancient "elephant trunk" hairdryers need to be replaced fast. Breakfast was OK but bacon cold. Coffee at breakfast was very weak and stewed, a clever combination!

The building is fantastic, beautiful tiles everywhere and impressive public rooms. Good location too. Westin needs to get a grip here and sort out the problems, as frequent Westin customers will be disappointed with the standard.

Beautiful Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Very elegant hotel with lovely Westin beds and sheets. Located very near to the cathedral and center of the city. Highly recommended if you want to stay at the nicest hotel in Seville.

Must disagree

from bickley
Like one of your other correspondents, I only dined at this hotel but unlike him I found it a rewarding experience. There was a special seafood festival taking place and the food was excellent and remarkable value for money. The service was attentive and professional. On the first occasion we could hear the piainist in the bar area playing together with the sound of many other people enjoying themselves: we found it very pleasant. On the second visit (a Sunday evening) it was very quiet: I still enjoyed my dinner but I think that we preferred the lively first occasion more. When I next go to Seville I will see if we can afford a few days at this hotel: certainly the restaurant and the bar were good value for a luxury hotel.

Very Average

from London_UkSteves
The hotel felt as if it had seen better days. The room although large was not very clean, stained bed valance and lampshades. The door to the balcony would not open, as the handle was broken. The hotel had switched off the AC. Although November, by the evening the room was uncomfortably warm. For a five star hotel, I would have expected it to be my choice not the hotels to decide if I required AC. The electrical wiring was quite frightening. One of the sockets was literally hanging off the wall, there was also exposed wiring behind the bed. The service was less than attentive at the bar. I did not use the restaurant but the coffee at breakfast was cold.

On the bright side, the building architecture is wonderful and the Westin beds are very comfortable. The desk staff allowed me to store my luggage after checkout until later in the day.

I also stayed a night at the Hotel Amadeus, which I cannot complement enough.

very very nice!

from mscarboroughusa
returned from a trip to Spain w/ my wife (early November) and spent time at both the Palace in Madrid and the Alfonso in Seville (Sevilla)- the only thing that keeps me from giving this hotel an "EXCELLENT" rating is/was the concierge- poor suggestions and a bit of an attitude are NOT what you want in a concierge- the hotel itself is AMAZING and beautiful- if you appreciate art and style, it is a great place- good location as well-

The only place to stay

from billymax
Just returned...5 glorious nights and a superb hotel, however the first room offered was'nt very nice but after viewing a couple of others we chose a large beautifully furnished room on the second floor. Housekeeping was excellent as was the breakfast included in the price. Staff were friendly and obliging.

Can't comment on the restaurant as with so many great places to eat in town we didn't try it but had a snack lunch on the last day which was very good indeed.

The only niggle was being locked out of the room on our last day. Having agreed a late checkout and arriving back at the hotel 30 mins before the agreed time it was galling and embarassing to be locked out which meant going back to the lobby .
After profuse apologies it took them 10 mins to get the room unlocked!! Another couple we spoke to said they'd had a similar experience. Make sure that a late check out is registered on their computer and that they won't lock out before the agreed extended time.

Expensive hotel but in a different class to any other hotel in Seville.

Restaurant is not worth it

from A TripAdvisor Member
My opinion is about the restaurant, because I did not stay in the hotel. Food was ok but the service wasn´t, not a cosy restaurant at all, rubbish next to our table and too much noise.
Not a good experience.

Simply the best

from undutchable2010
I stayed here with a friend in October 2002. It was an amazing experience. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Upon arrival, I had an allergic reaction to anti-biotics. Fortunately the hotel had a doctor on staff that could offer medical care. This was truly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The hotel is beautifully decorated. It's like staying in a museum. The room was also superb.

Exquisite hotel

from Mikeyt101
Truly stunning hotel. Central courtyard retaurant was fantastic. Staff were friendly and helpful and the room was nice (and cool in the heat of July). Only bad point was happy-hour in their bar where you think you're getting two drinks for the price of one but you end up paying for all of them unless you drink the same thing all night. Such a wonderful hotel didn't need to try and rip you off like that. Oh, Seville is a great place to shop too!!!

Not a 5 Star Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Old, outdated rooms. If you are visiting in the summer when it's 100 degrees+ in Seville, the AC in the hotel does not work very well (rooms or lobby). For a so called "Top 25" hotel in Europe (CondeNast), the Alfonso does not live up to the standards of other 5 star Westin properties (i.e. Westin Palace, Madrid).

On the bright side, the hotel does have a pool. In addition, the building itself is an amazing architectural landmark.

Top Local Tips for Sevilla

Do some research Food varies a lot in Seville. So do some research to get good recommendations before you go.

bus from/to the airport it stops at the main entrance of the hotel. once you get out from the airport, you have to turn right and there's the bus stop. it takes 25 minutes more or less to reach th hotel and the ticket costs 2 euro. spend your money in the hotel, not in the taxi. every 30 minutes departs the bus. a taxi may be 20 euro.

Vacationing in Seville Seville is a low key city with fewer important historical attractions than one would imagine and a lively night life (restaurants are going strong at midnight, etc). The most important area for both is the Santa Cruz district, a charming and beautifully restored area of winding lanes. While there are many lovely small hotels in the Santa Cruz district, many are on streets that DO NOT PERMIT CARS and thus you will have to carry your bags yourself from the nearest car accessible place. Sometimes this can be quite a few blocks. Also, the Santa Cruz area contains a lot of tapas bars and restaurants, and many of the hotels are on the squares in which those are located. If that is the case, know that you will hear dinner chatter outside your window until significantly past midnight. One of the benefits of the location of the Alfonso XIII was that none of that was a problem.
