      What to say that has not been already said? Felipe, our concierge, was punctual, helpful and kind. When you check in, the theme is comfort and relaxation. He greets you and directs you to the open patio and says for your comfort before we check in, what would you like to drink? So we sit there instead of rushing to get our passports and papers like other hotels. We drink freshly pressed orange juice - that Felipe prepares off to the side bar; or if you prefer, a cocktail instead. He casually collects our passports and then returns to our table to give us the lay of the hotel and environs. No rush to get to our rooms. Every evening we look forward to returning to our space bc once you come back the silence and peace is welcoming after a busy day sightseeing. I have to return...

      From the warm and helpful staff to the lovely rooftop, this hotel gets 5 stars! You are told to call the hotel upon arrival and they will help park your car (in their safe and secure parking) and they will also bring your car to a central spot when you are ready to leave (plus help you with your luggage). After entering the beautiful hotel from an alley, we were met with a welcoming glass of bubbly. The hotel's location is perfect for wandering and exploring the neighborhood. There is live guitar music each evening in the beautiful courtyard and the rooms are small but lovely. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and appreciated how friendly everyone was and how much they wanted us to enjoy our experience.

      My wife and I loved EVERYTHING about this very special boutique hotel: it location and appearance and especially the quality and hospitality of its staff. We stayed four nights and would happily have stayed many nights more. The facility is a recently renovated palace with a beautiful atrium and centering fountain, an enchanting ambience for a truly memorable experience. Our room, a suite, was large and had attractive traditional features as well as contemporary conveniences. But, as wonderful as the the facility is, the most exceptional aspect of the experience for us lies even more in the quality and hospitality of the staff. Individually and collectively they could offer a tutorial in service effectiveness to hotel staff anywhere! On arrival we were effusively greeted with glasses of wine and a platter of cheese, ham, and olives even before the check-in process. On departure we were sent off with personal assistance and extended and unusually warm wishes. In between we were the grateful recipients of every possible courtesy and thoughtfulness by the staff at breakfast, in booking tickets, making dinner reservations, troubleshooting airline check-in processes, engaging taxis, and providing touristic guidance. Anna was exceptionally gracious repeatedly in offering help; Nordeen and his staff were remarkably kind and effective in remembering our individual needs and preferences both during breakfast service and also during our two dinners at the excellent and related, next door San Marco Restaurante; Felipe, Jessica, and Jose responded smilingly and helpfully to our every request; and Trinidad was warm, hospitable, and charming on multiple encounters. We felt surrounded by incomparable hospitality in an enchanting hotel environment, which well long remember together with the many special sights of Sevilla. For us the Casa de Poeta was an unrivaled experience of luxury and and high service standards. We recommend it most enthusiastically.

      We felt like stepping into the tales of 1001 Nights when we entered the hotel from a small alley. Very warm greeting by the staff in the inside court of the building, which is some 600 years old and whichs first inhabitant was in fact a poet. Wonderful room (almost all facing the court) with all amenities; guitar concerto in the evening; sitting on the roof later writing down the days events in the diary, seing the parakeets, doves and starlings fly by. Ample breakfast is being served and there is a small room service menu. Its items are also served in the courtyard. There is no regular restaurant, but the hotel is surrounded by them and you wont starve. It is only a few minutes walk to all the top sights. Dont try to get here by car. It is not going to work. But the parking lot is very close, so nothing to worry, and the hotel will provide good directions.

    • I wanted to LOVE Casa Del Poeta but...

      Reviewed 23 September 2019

      Numerous things combine to make a memorable and beautiful experience. Indeed, a gorgeous location is one of them, and Casa del Poeta (what poet is the hotel named for?) delivers--not only in its proximity to major sights in Seville (easy walking distance); but in its public areas. However the "silence" signs, while perhaps intended to remind guests to be respectful, tend to create more of a funereal atmosphere than a restful one, as if the beautiful inner patio and the gracious sitting room are preserved in amber and we dare not disturb anything with the joy, spontaneity or mirth of a traveler in contentment. What the hotel doesn't explain anywhere is that some of the rooms have no window except one facing the hallway and interior courtyard, which means no privacy and no natural light in your room; (and while the room is pretty enough, it can feel claustrophobic, because you are essentially shut inside with no access to sunlight, and if you open the shade, anyone walking along the balcony can look into the room.) The bathroom had a tub, a magnifying mirror, and good light for applying makeup, as well as washcloths (bonus points, as this is a rarity in many European hotels, no matter the star-class rating). Very comfortable pillows and quality bedding were also a plus; many hotels get that wrong, too. Breakfasts are included if you book online; but they appear to be brought in from outside and are a step or so above a continental breakfast (sliced cold meats and cheese are included); but they don't begin serving until 8am -- not ideal if you have an early train to catch or are traveling to a nearby city such as Cordoba for a day trip. The hotel staff accommodates you for an earlier breakfast if you let them know in advance; but they are not necessarily cheerful about it. They also supply brisk and cursory directions with a local map and seemed disinclined to be more helpful regarding directions (and the Barrio de Santa Cruz is a labyrinth). We were not also not pleased when one of the women confirmed that it should cost 15 euro in a taxi from the train station (that's what we were charged on arrival; and we suspected it was a vast overcharge, because getting to the station FROM the hotel cost only about 5 euro, as did a subsequent journey from the station to the hotel. Unfortunately, Shakespeare's pun from "Much Ado about Nothing" -- "Civil [Seville] as an orange" applies to the staff here, and it saddens me as a woman to write this about other women; they were indeed civil, but hardly cordial or genuinely welcoming to us, over a 2+day period. Seville oranges are renowned for not being sweet, and Shakespeare knew what he was punning about. While it's a lovely property, we did not find the cost commensurate with the experience we expected. I love boutique hotels and had exceptionally high hopes for Casa del Poeta; booking our room 9 months in advance for a very special occasion. In our experience of this hotel, I wish the reality had lived up to the dream.
