“SANTA ANA” ..............

Opened in 2007, just a ten to fifteen minute walk to the Cathedral and the Barrio Santa Cruz (along two of Seville´s most famous and tempting shopping streets) this Hotel is a little gem. As the name implies – it is the original 17th Century Sacristy of the Church of Santa Ana. It is entirely appropriate then, that the current Head of Reception is called Ana! Definitely a Saint!! Both Ana and her charming staff will take care of you in every way possible and they always have a smile! The Hotel is situated on the Alameda de Hercules – a large tree-lined avenue with towering columns and a statue of Hercules at either end. The avenue has recently undergone a huge amount of work and is a very up and coming area with some trendy restaurants and tapas bars along both sides. There is a Sunday morning flea market along the avenue. A bus service into the Barrio Santa Cruz runs from outside the hotel.

You enter from the street into a traditional Andalucia patio with a terracotta tiled floor and a fountain – reception is to your right. There are a few comfy chairs spotted about and as the patio now has a glass roof to protect it from the elements it is a comfortable place to sit and plan your day. It is definitely a place of peace in this cosmopolitan city. The dark wooden galleries that surround the upper floors contrast strikingly with the pale pastel colours on the walls and ceilings.

The 25 bedrooms are spread over three floors around the central patio. There is a lift to all floors. The most luminous rooms (the Superior Doubles and Junior Suite) have views over the Alameda de Hercules. If you are a light sleeper, you might want to take a Standard Double on the interior (consequently less natural light) as there is some traffic noise from the street below, although I stayed in one of the rooms overlooking the Alameda and was not unduly bothered by street noise. Every room is different. Simple, yet tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. They are all named after Gods or the works of Hercules or Heracles. All beds have hand-painted original headboards by the interior designers. Pastel colours and light washes on the walls give them a warm feel. There are Double Rooms and just one lovely large Junior Suite. Many have twin beds (side by side) as opposed to doubles so please do specify if you would like a double bed at the time of booking and the Hotel will do their best to honour your request. I found my double bed to be very comfortable. All rooms are equipped with heating, air-con, safe, mini.bar, wi-fi and satellite television. Bathrooms are of a good size and have huge showerheads with gleaming fixtures and fittings. Toiletries and copious fluffy white towels are provided. The Junior Suite has a wonderful “Mudejar” ceiling and I especially liked the double rooms on the upper floor with their sloping rooves under the eaves.

Continental breakfasts are served in the restaurant “Santa Ana” that is also open for lunch and dinner. A supplement is payable for a cooked breakfast option, although with the fresh fruits, cereals, pastries, cheeses and hams available you will not be starving if you avoid the eggs and bacon! The restaurant spills onto the street and on a warm day it is a wonderful place to have lunch and people watch. There is a changing daily three course menu (reasonably priced) with a fish or meat option. Mediterranean cuisine is available from the A La Carte Menu with good and original accompanying sauces.

An ideal Hotel for those who want a grand historical building but on an intimate scale with friendly staff. A good price for Seville and sufficiently far enough away from the bustling tourist area around the Cathedral.
