Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Barceló Renacimiento was one of the hotels built to provide accommodation for the 1992 Universal Exposition, and boasts a large number of rooms (295). Although it is set away from the historical centre, its location has the advantage of being very close to the Isla Magica theme park and the Isla de la Cartuja, a very famous and important scientific research centre. Its modern design is eyecatching and it has even been compared to the Guggenheim museum. However, the thing we liked most about the hotel was all the space: there is a park measuring 10,000m² as well as spacious communal areas and a swimming pool. Nevertheless, the minimalist interior can appear a bit cold in spite of the presence of plant-covered walls and a few trees.

    Location

    The Barceló Renacimiento is located approximately 6 mi from the airport (about 15 minutes by car) in the district of Cartuja, and was built for the 1992 Universal Exposition. The cathedral and city centre are around 2 mi away, so you are best off catching the bus to get there.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    Thanks to its imposing size, the Barceló Renacimiento hosts many conferences and events all year round; its convention centre can seat up to 1,200 people and its 295 guest rooms can provide accommodation for up to around 600 guests. Most of the guests staying here are travelling on business. The hotel consists of three buildings which are brightly lit thanks to the big picture windows that allow the light to flood in through the ceiling. The panoramic lifts offer a great view over the vegetation. A corridor with a thick carpet underfoot leads down to the guest rooms. In addition to a red carpet matching the armchairs (with foot-rests), the standard rooms are decorated with striped wallpaper that matches the curtains. We must admit, the interior decor here is stylish. Some of the rooms overlook the river, while others offer a view of the theme park. However, thanks to the shape of the buildings, all of the rooms enjoy a side view of the latter. A sliding door separates the guest room from the sliding door wardrobe and the bathroom. This brightly lit, marble-lined room is provided with a shower, a complete set of hospitality products, a rather outdated hair-dryer, a make-up mirror and, most important of all, a power outlet. If you would like any products that the kit doesn't seem to include, you can always ask at reception. If you want to enjoy your stay on a grand scale, the Barceló Renacimiento also has seven 70m² suites, each of which has its own terrace, a lounge and a Nespresso coffee machine.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The Barceló Renacimiento opened in 1992 and was renovated in 2006. It is an ultra-modern complex consisting of three round buildings, each containing 96 guest rooms, and at its heart there are a number of lounges. Nicknamed the Guggenheim of hotels, this original, modern construction is sure to impress. Everything is big and spacious in this residence, including the entrance hall. Several armchairs have been arranged in the space opposite the reception counter, next to the scupted walls which are surprising to say the least. They feature patterns inspired by the discovery of Latin America, and bear the inscription '1492-1992'. Lamps hanging from the ceiling complete the minimalist decor in this space. At the centre of the room, there is a bar with large, red armchairs. Just beside this area is a little shop which sells clothes and other miscellaneous objects and souvenirs. Finally, right at the end is the business centre, where you will find everything you need to work and connect to the internet. The fountains and a few trees help soften the edges of these white cement buildings, adding a natural dimension.

    On your way out of the hotel, you will see the 10,000m² garden and the swimming pool, which is surrounded by deckchairs. It also overlooks the Isla Magica theme park, so you are sure to hear the noise made by the children playing on the rides next door. Towels are provided for guests next to the swimming pool. It should also be noted that there are little tables topped with white curtain canopies dotted around the garden area, so you can enjoy lunch and dinner outside in the summer months.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Spanish breakfast is served as a buffet every morning in a ground-floor dining room with space for 180 guests to sit and eat. As well as the usual items on offer (pastries, cold cuts, cheese, etc.), you can also enjoy dishes prepared right in front of you. The à la carte restaurant on the ground floor has a very good reputation. The decor combines the dark parquet flooring with orange cushioned armchairs, and the whole space has a rather forest-like feel to it, largely on account of the presence of luxuriant trees. An additional eating option is provided by another little restaurant, although with room for only 50 diners, this cannot be enjoyed by many of this busy hotel's guests at one time. When events or conventions are being held here, other facilities are made available to provide meals. As far as the food is concerned, the executive menu priced at around £22.50 includes dishes such as gaspacho or pepper salad as a starter, followed by Iberian pork tenderloin or rice with squid ink, then a dessert of raspberry mousse with white chocolate and sorbet, or pound cake with orange oil and coconut cream.

    To know

    The whole area is entirely dedicated to leisure activities: as well as the Parque del Alamillo, the establishment is very close to Isla Magica, in the Cartuja district. This is why some of the accommodation packages include entry to the theme park.

      • Location 5.65

      As its name suggests, this hotel from the Eurostars chain is located in the neighbourhood of Cartuja, which was built to host the Universal Exposition of Seville in 1992. However, not only is it in this neighbourhood, it is actually within the Olympic Stadium itself! This makes it an especially appealing place to stay if you are going to watch a match or any other event being held there. The guest rooms overlooking the stadium are particularly eye-catching. However, you are best off arriving by car or by taxi, because otherwise you will have to cross an immense and rather unattractive car park in order to get there. Also, the hotel is a long way from the city centre, and does not have a lot of facilities.

      Located in the district of Macarena in the suburbs of Seville is the superb building of San Gil hotel (which dates back to 1901). A charming hotel, with a lovely flower-filled garden and patio, its only downside is its distance from the city centre, but its main attraction is definitely the pool on the panoramic terrace.

      The Casa Sacristía de Santa Ana is a boutique hotel in a prime location at the heart of Seville. Great attention has been paid to every last detail, from the furniture to the materials used, not forgetting the combination of shapes and colours. As soon as you set foot inside the hotel you'll find yourself in a modern Andalusian-style courtyard with a small fountain and stylish furniture with a very pleasant feel to it. You are also sure to receive a very heartfelt welcome here and should feel free to ask at reception should you have any questions or queries whatsoever. The inside part of the breakfast room is also worth special mention. All that's really missing is a nice pool for swimming a few lengths on a hot summer's day!
