Florida Hostal Sevilla Reviews
Beware........of falling water!!! Aug 12, 2009
First, I didn't book this hostal. I am a researcher and pride myself in choosing well. That is why most all of my reviews of hotels are good. I use the tools of the internet to make informed / good decisions. That said, the hostal I had booked had lost my reservation so, I had no place to stay. Therefore.....Hostal Florida.
For a hostel this was expensive. I had such a bad experience that I left after day one and went to a much much nicer hotel ( to be reviewed separately) that was only 6 euro more than this DUMP!
Ok so, the hostal is on a main road on the way to/from the train station. It's not central to anything. The reception didn't speak English and had to get someone to translate. She was also in a both behind glass. This should have been a sign.
The room was on the 4th floor so many stairs. The room was small and not clean. There was no place to really to even put anything. There are a few hooks on the wall to hang something. The bath is tiny and dirty. I mean mildew in the grout. On the positive side we had A/C for 5 euro extra. It was July in Seville.....we paid!!!
In the morning while my partner was showering I felt a spray of water, while laying inb bed. All of a sudden the spray became a waterfall. Water was pouring from the A/C which was mounted high on the wall above the bed. It just kept pouring for quite a while. The reception said that they couldn't fix it until until the next week. We didn't stay another night as we looked for other accomodations....happily.
