Expert review of El Pasaje
The Pasaje is a small hotel which occupies a building that dates back to 1900 on a narrow pedestrianised street. While on the basic side, it has all the facilities you’re likely to need on a short stay when you’re out most of the time anyway. It is officially a 'hostal', which just means a basic hotel, and not a 'hostel' as stated on the English version of their website. Don't worry, you're not going to be stuck in a dorm with a load of backpackers!
Near the Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Santa Ana. It doesn’t get more downtown than this. Really handy for shops, bars and restaurants and about a mile from the Prado. Between Sol and Sevilla metro stations.
The décor in the 14 double rooms is neutral in the extreme, but at least there’s nothing to object to. It’s a lovely old building though, so it’s a bit of a shame that the rooms are devoid of character. Bit snug too, but rates are so reasonable, I shouldn’t really gripe about that. There’s air-conditioning, mini-bars, televisions and safes, and a cable internet connection. While there’s no traffic noise, you might hear people walking past after a night out, so ask for a room at the back if you think that might bother you.
Small open-brick lobby area.
There's no restaurant, but a buffet breakfast is served in the adjacent Café de Levante.
Fine for this level of hotel. Reception staff are happy to help you book trips, hire cars etc.
Tourists who want to be somewhere central and just need somewhere clean and comfortable to sleep.
The rate for a double room including breakfast is pretty good value. Free cable internet in rooms.
