Melia Sevilla Oct 08, 2011
Hotel Melia Sevilla is primarily a business hotel, with large tour groups and business people and conference centres.  But if you can get rooms at a good rate on the internet then it is a nice base to explore Seville as a tourist too. 


It is very close to Plaza Espanol (and selling itself on how close it is to the shops – a somewhat mysterious marketing decision for a hotel so close to the centre of one of the loveliest cities in Europe, but I am sure it made sense to them).  The Cathedral is maybe a 20 minute walk, depending on the heat. 


The rooms are very nice, with big bathrooms and nice beds.  Our room had a lovely view out over the city and to the Giralda. The staff are helpful and speak English very well.  There is free use of an outdoor pool (weather permitting), although there is a hefty extra charge for the spa in the basement.  The pool is very clean and probably about 10m long, and very cold which is quite a good thing when the temperatures hit 38 degrees in October!  I will review the spa separately as you can go there as a non guest. 


There is theoretically free wifi in the lobby, and a charge for wifi in the room, although you can get free wifi if you are a loyalty card holder and I never got the wifi to work very well in the room.  The bar looked nice, but we didn’t go.  Breakfast is an extra charge so we went to cafes and things instead. 


Please note I got a third off this hotel on expedia, so it cost me about £65 a night rather than £100 ish.

Gran Melia Colon Overview

This Seville hotel is near several major attractions, including the Cathedral, La Giralda, and the Torre del Oro. The Real Maestranza bull ring is also near the Gran Melia Colon. Seville’s major shopping district is minutes away by car. The historic island of La Cartuja is also close by. The Gran Melia Colon is just a short drive from the airport and is within walking distance of Seville’s high-speed train station.

Guestrooms at the Gran Melia Colon vary in size; some are standard, some are premium, some are penthouse level, and some are suites. All rooms feature private baths, televisions, and phones. Some boast panoramic views of the city.

The Gran Melia Colon is something of a city icon itself, known for its grand architecture. The hotel was originally built for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, and since that time, it has remained popular for its interesting design, which blends modern style with Andalusian tradition. The property contains conference rooms, which can hold up to 285 people. A full service spa and salon is also on site. A restaurant and bar are available as well.
