My husband & I recently stayed at the Alcoba. We'd initially booked for the marathon but because of injury it ended up being a wonderful romantic break. The decor is as pictured in a Moorish style. The room was beautiful & really felt like an oasis with touches like a gorgeous rain style shower, an incense menu, and gorgeous smelling toiletries.

The location of the hotel was great as it was an easy walk (20-30 minutes) to a lot of the sights and tapas bars. The service was warm and we felt looked after. Breakfast is served in the restaurant next door and was a very generous spread with fresh orange juice & excellent coffee.

The only let down was that the toilet was not as private as I would prefer being partitioned by a decorative screen. Although for another break in Seville I'd happily book again.

Thank you very much for your opinion. We really appreciate them because they give us clues of how can we improve in our guests' satisfaction. I´'m sorry you could not have the privacy you needed at the tollet. Our rooms are all different between each other and there are much private bathrooms and others that their decoration is such that it makes it difficult to have absolute privacy. I'm sure you can request it next time you visit the hotel and we will assign you a room which will suit your requirements.
It was a pity you could not run our marathon. Maybe next year?
Thanks again and take care.

beautiful hotel, full of character and with excellent service. added bonus was an escalator, not always available in an old building. breakfast was a buffet of cheeses, meats and omelettes and breads, all fresh and delicious.

Room Tip: our room was clean and comfortable, not aware of other rooms

We stayed at the Alcoba del Rey de Sevilla for two nights during New Year's celebrations. The hotel is located in the Macarena district, a 20m walk to the historic centre. The neighborhood of the hotel is very nice and full of good restaurants and bars where you can find mostly locals. The rooms are original, cozy clean and comfortable. The staff is very very nice and helpful. Overall, a very good option and we would recommend it if you are in Sevilla. Do try the restaurant, el Rincón de Rosita!

This small hotel with a Moorish-inspired design emphasis is located in La Macarena, just across from the regional parliament and next to the Basilica, and easily accessible via taxi or city bus. It’s in a bustling neighborhood (outside the tourist zone and not quaint), but the street noise was not intrusive inside the hotel. Fun, little neighborhood shops are nearby—a sherry shop, flamenco supplies, a churros-and-chocolate stand, the terrific Lonja de Feria market, and the Thursday flea market. Rooms are upstairs, around a central patio (covered with a glass roof). Beautiful plaster work and arches are evoke the Moorish era and Arabian nights. The design concept is eye-catching, but the property suffers some maintenance issues (e.g., the tired rooftop terrace) and noise from the lobby does funnel upstairs quite a lot.

Our room (Caid Axafat) was colorful, spacious, and had filtered natural light (no views). The bathroom looks quaint, with brass sconce lights, metal basins, and arched-frame mirrors. But the tiny shower stall has no curtain, so the entire bathroom area quickly became slippery (and required sacrificing one of the small towels to dry it), and a repair work patch on the tiny shower floor was painfully rough. A switch blew a fuse and we lost all lights the one morning we needed to leave early for a reservation (it was repaired within a half-hour). Nice details, but a bit rough around the edges.

The staff is friendly and helpful—especially the young woman who runs the breakfast in the attached café (kudos for great service, a friendly smile, and a nice assortment of breakfast foods). They offer nice touches—fresh flowers for the room and a bottle of cava.
