Star rating:
4 star hotel

4.5

Chic high tech boutique hotel in the heart of Seville.

The first of the three Petit Palace “High Tech” boutique hotels to open in Seville, this is still my favourite. I love the contrast between the old 19th century palace backdrop and the chic stylish furnishings. I especially love all the available gadgetry and the fabulous bathrooms.

Location

It's either the best or the worst location depending on whether you are arriving by car or not. I wouldn't recommend the car option, which also means that there is obviously not much traffic noise, even though you're only about a five-minute walk to just about anywhere you might want to go. So, a nice quiet central street next to everything you want makes this a perfect location.

Bedrooms

The 57 rooms are divided up between singles, doubles, triples and family rooms for up to four people (the latter with very cute bunk beds). Modern design with platform beds – some might find them a bit hard but they are actually my favourite kind of bed. All rooms are equipped with a laptop and 20” flat screen TV, and the superior rooms also have an iPod dock so you can enjoy your own music. Pets up to 15 kilos are allowed and are given free baskets and bowls.

Public areas

There's a lovely Sevillano courtyard just past the reception area, and there is also free WiFi throughout the hotel, including at one small workstation with a computer. Make sure to go up to the rooftop terrace in the evening to relax and enjoy the view. Unfortunately there is no bar upstairs.

Eating and drinking

There is a breakfast buffet for 15 euros, but I'd recommend eating out, especially as the Horno San Buenaventura is just around the corner and has the best coffee in town.

Leisure facilities

Free bicycles are available.

Service

Friendly and professional.

Who stays there

Perfect for geeks like me who may not want to lug a laptop around with them, but in fact it's perfect for anyone who wants to be in the “un-touristy” heart of town.

Price advice

Breakfast is 15 euros extra, and parking costs 20 euros a day, plus tax.
