Seville Hotels: A Wealth Of Choice
Some visitors to Seville might prefer to stay in a hotel slightly outside the citycentre itself - perhaps near the airport or the main railway station, Santa Justa. These visitors are well catered for. Unlike many airports, Seville's is very convenient to the city itself, just five minutes away from the main ring road and ten minutes from the heart of this Andalucian gem. This means that hotels such as the AC Hotel Santa Justa and the Hotel Ibis Sevilla offer accommodation that is convenient to both the airport and the city.
If you're looking for luxury, however, then there is a wonderful selection of hotels from which to choose. For example, the awe-inspiring Hotel Alfonso XIII was specifically designed for the prestigious 1929 Exhibition with the aim of being Europe's most luxurious hotel. Opposite the fountain at the Puerta de Jerez and just minutes away from the city's major attractions, this is most definitely one of Spain's top hotels.
The Hotel Silken Al-Andalus Palace Hotel, quite close to the Real Betis football stadium in the Heliopolis district of the city, not only has its own art and furniture exhibition but it has over 15000 square meters of wonderful peaceful gardens and a stunning outdoor swimming pool. There are numerous other top quality hotels in stunning buildings - often converted from palaces and retaining many of their original features. These include the delightfully atmospheric Casa de la Juderia and the Vincci La Rabida, near the Bull Ring and which has a terrace with stunning views of the cathedral and La Giralda.
There are so many delightful places to stay in the city of Seville; many of them smaller hotels in the narrow streets of the Santa Cruz area - although they are mostly without car parking spaces. The Murillo and Becquer hotels are good examples of hotels which offer the best modern facilities in historic situations. Seville can also boast some excellent value hostels to travellers. For example, the funky atmosphere of the Urbany Hostel, with high speed internet access, good rooms, a filling breakfast and within minutes of all the sights of the city, is typical of the quality of places available. Hostels in Spain are, generally speaking, good value establishments that can cater for individuals, couples, families or groups - don't fall into the trap of imagining that they're just full of noisy backpackers, bunk beds and dormitories. They can be excellent places to stay for a few nights.
It is important to remember that Seville is just about the most popular place in Spain at both Easter, for the famous Semana Santa celebrations, and during the April Festival. Be prepared for a considerable price hike at these times and, if you want to stay then, you really do need to book several months in advance. There are so many places to stay in Seville - offering the very best facilities or excellent basic rooms at good value. With the internet now offering an easy way to check out hotels and their facilities - and to gather information about them from past visitors - the best way to reserve accommodation nowadays is to go online and ensure you can obtain just what you are looking for.
