Expert review of Hotel Vincci La Rabida
A beautifully-restored 18th century palace, which Seville seems to have no shortage of, you wouldn't think of La Rabida as being part of a chain at first glance. And although the tastefully-decorated rooms and public areas seem to lack some of the personal touches that you tend to find at independently-owned hotels, I think it's still a lovely place to stay.
Just off the beaten track but still very central and close to the main monuments and shopping areas, as well as some of the best tapas bars in town.
You'll find the rooms are nicely spacious and done out in warm earth tones with lots of dark wood and terracotta floor tiles, in the traditional Sevillano style. They range from standard singles and doubles to “family rooms”, which are actually junior suites. A pillow menu is available.
The hotel is built around a spectacular Sevillano courtyard and fountain that is furnished with comfy sofas and small tables. You can also relax in a small lounge area or enjoy a drink on the outdoor patio. Unfortunately, there is no free WiFi anywhere in the hotel, which would actually prevent me from staying here, but of course many people like to completely disconnect while on holiday, so this would obviously not be a drawback for them.
There are two restaurants to choose from. The Patio downstairs on the main floor is where the breakfast buffet is served and it also has an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner. The rooftop bar and restaurant, which is open after 8pm, has a fabulous view of the cathedral and Giralda and is great for a late night drink, but it is sometimes closed for private functions, especially at weekends. Personally, I prefer to eat at one of the many excellent tapas bars and restaurants nearby
Solarium terrace with jacuzzi.
Polite and a bit formal, but they get the job done – and in English too.
The usual cross-section that chain hotels attract. Lots of families, couples and groups of friends.
Breakfast is 15 euros extra, parking is 16.20 euros, and WiFi costs 10 euros an hour.
