The Hotel Alminar is located on a quiet pedestrian street just two blocks from the Cathedral, adjacent to the Santa Cruz quarter and shopping district in the the centre of Seville. The Plaza Nueva, Plaza San Francisco and Plaza Salvador are close by, leading to the main shopping streets of Sierpes and Tetuan. The 12 room hotel occupies a traditional and completely renovated 17th century building. With the small number of rooms, the hotel is able to offer a warm and very personalized service for every guest. In keeping with the philosophy of excellent service, the hotel has a daily breakfast service, free high-speed WiFi internet access as well as a free "Coffee Corner", with hot and cold drinks for guests.

The building was once owned by the Foronda family, famous for their handmade silk shawls, scarves and other typical Andalusian artisan crafts. The location is on the former "mercaderes" street which for many centuries served as the heart of the central merchant district. Guests enter the main reception from this same street, now called Álvarez Quintero. Just behind reception is the breakfast room and guest lounge with television. Adjacent is a small sitting room with additional chairs and tables. The elevator and stairs lead to the majority of the guest rooms.

Why we selected this hotel... Top |

First and foremost is the excellent staff who always have time to help guests with whatever need they may have, whether it be services in the hotel, advice about the city, places to visit or restaurant and tapas recommendations. We particularly enjoy the style of the hotel, blending modern, comfortable furnishings and charming decoration with the architecture of an historic building. The location provides several advantages. Proximity to the Cathedral, Santa Cruz and central shopping district means a short walk no matter what your destination may be. Situated on the corner of two pedestrian streets, the location also permits the luxury of exterior windows for almost every guest room without the noise of the city center. Finally, just a few paces away guests will find two of our favorite Robles locations: Restaurante Robles and Robles Tapas, which we can highly recommend from our personal visits. And we of course can't resist the rooms with a private terrace or the free WiFi internet connection and Coffee Corner.
