Not that long ago the Alameda de Hercules was a rather dodgy area of town, but the city pretty much rebuilt the alameda (public walk) itself and many of the buildings and homes around it have also been done over so that it is all quite upmarket these days. There are enough restaurants and bars to keep you happy during your stay, as well as quite a lively nightlife, and the main shopping district is only about five minutes away. Another ten minutes will take you into the centre of town.
There are 25 bedrooms, from standard singles and doubles to suites, all tastefully decorated in muted tones of stone, wheat and honey, some with splendid high-beamed ceilings, and all fully-equipped with modern conveniences. You can ask for rooms with views facing either the courtyard or the street.
The first thing you see as you walk in is the lovely Sevillano patio with a fountain and comfy sofas and small tables, perfect for a relaxing drink or comfortable read. Next to the reception area there's a cosy room with a computer and a couple of chairs. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel.
