My husband and I just got back from a 6 city tour of Spain. We spent two nights at Hotel Casa 1800 in Sevilla. It was one of my favorite hotels on the trip. It's located right next to the Cathedral and a very popular local tapas bar, Bodega Santa Cruz (a.k.a. Las Columnas). From our hotel we were able to walk to all major sites. We even did a run from the hotel down to the Guadalquivir River and along the Riverside Path.

The hotel itself was very nicely appointed. The lobby, courtyard, roof top deck, and other communal areas look exactly like they do on the hotel website. Although the deck upstairs is kind of small, the view of the lit up Cathedral at night is worth a trip up to the roof for a picture or two.

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. They pointed out the running trail for us. Also, it was Holy Week (Semana Santa) while we were there. The staff were very helpful in sharing cultural knowledge and local tips for getting a good view of the processions. We also appreciated the umbrellas they lent us while we were there. It was nice not having to buy and carry around an umbrella for the duration of our trip.

Complimentary breakfast and tea were a very nice bonus. (We realized that this isn't typical in most hotels in Spain. At least, not without extra costs.) For breakfast they provided (buffet style) toast, muffins, croissants, cereal, ham & cheese sandwiches, yogurt, donuts, and fruit (usually bananas, apples, or pears). Coffee with milk, various juices, and bottled water were also provided. From what I recall, breakfast was served from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. There was always ample food and drink, no matter what time you got down to breakfast. (We really got into Spanish time, so we tended to be part of the later shift.) Afternoon tea was also very nice. I believe it was from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. They offered the same drinks as during breakfast. The food, minus a couple of items, was exactly the same as well. Again, you never had to worry that they would run out.

We were in room 208, which is a superior room. We had originally booked a standard room, but was upgraded (not sure why, but greatly appreciated it.) It was nicer being on a higher floor. Our room opened up to the courtyard in the middle. The decor was nice, but a little dark. The bathroom area was painted dark brown, which made the room seem even darker. The lighting was kind of dim. I would have preferred a clean, white duvet instead of the cream/taupe colored blankets they used on the beds (see website pictures). There was a small balcony that faced a side street. However, it was less than one foot in width, so you couldn't step outside. The glass was thick enough to keep the noise out. I never had a problem with sleeping due to noise. The water bottles provided in the mini fridge were free. They were good about restocking the mini fridge with water. Everything else in the mini fridge is charged. The bathroom was a nice size, with a tub. Complimentary toiletries (from what I can remember) included shower cap, shampoo, body wash, slippers, and a comb. There was no conditioner for your hair. Although, this seems to be typical of all the hotels in Spain. The temperature in the room seemed to remain the same despite how much we tried to adjust it. The room was kind of warm at night. Due to noise we didn't want to open the window. Since it was early Spring, we were able to get away with just kicking off the blanket and using the sheets. I would be a little concerned if we were visiting Spain during a hotter season.

As for Sevilla itself, it was one of our favorite cities. Because of Semana Santa we truly got a different feel and experience. We were there on Palm Sunday. The whole town was dressed up in their Sunday best. Due to the rainy weather, people had to wait around to see if processions were going to go. Many were cancelled. It was so interesting to see the whole town milling about on the streets, in tapas bars, and restaurants...the women dressed in the latest fashions and all the men in suits. There were Nazarenes walking around in full garb. When the processions finally started, a little before sunset, we finally understood what all the anticipation was about. The music was glorious, the energy of the crowds palpable, and the floats (in particular those of the Virgin Mary with all the candles) moving. This experience, along with the sweet smell of all the blooming orange trees that line the streets in Sevilla, is what we will keep in our memories of Sevilla.

Pros: Amazing location, so close to every tourist attraction, great local streets and popular restaurants. The hotel lobby was gorgeous, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms were beautiful. Cons: Breakfast is expensive, and they seemed to have some trouble with the heat--my parents room was really hot. Parking was not convenient, but you could drive up to the hotel to drop off bags.

We arrived at Hotel Casa 1800 exhausted after a full day's travel from the U.S. and demoralized after we made it to the baggage carousel but our luggage did not! Stepping into the lobby of Casa 1800 after that long day felt like arriving at an oasis, as they gave us a room upgrade and informed us that breakfasts were free, and that they'd track down our luggage (they did!). Not only that, but they recommended a place to eat (Labulla) that was one of our favorite meals of the trip, so much so that we went back a few nights later.

The hotel was so nice, being situated in a beautiful house/mansion with a pleasant courtyard and high ceilings with wooden beams. The rooftop terrace overlooking the massive Cathedral was sublime. Overall, the hotel made for a nice place to linger and spend a leisurely time between sightseeing (especially given the Spanish custom of taking a long lunchtime/siesta break and late dinners). The location is great too, on a little side street just a stone's throw from the Cathedral. The breakfasts were nice also, relatively simple but they included a very tasty assortment of pastries, cereal, fruit, etc. The fresh-squeezed OJ was delicious as well. They do an afternoon tea as well, which was a nice way to relax a bit in the afternoon.

Friendly and efficient service, great location, atmospheric building, and really a great value too (we stayed there for about $180/night in mid-March). We'd definitely stay here again if we're ever back in Seville.

We just returned from our 4 night stay during "semana santa" in Sevilla. We could not have selected a better hotel. The location, the service and friendliness of the staff at reception were excellent. The hotel is a located at 100 meters of the cathedral and close to all bars and restaurants. One of the Wednesday processions came by the hotel : difficult to find a better way to see it. The building has been restored with great taste and our junior suite room was great.
The hotel is certainly worth the ratings it receives in tripadvisor. Highly recommended.
