Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Walking distance to major attractions, shops and restaurants
  • Spacious, clean rooms with flat-screen TVs and A/C
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Quality breakfast buffet (not included in standard rate)
  • Free cribs
  • Meeting rooms and a business center

Cons

  • Fee for self-parking

Bottom Line

The 68-room Monte Carmelo is a solid mid-range pick in Los Remedios neighborhood, a local area outside the city center (but still within a 15-minute walk of most major attractions). Clean, spacious rooms feature flat-screen TVs, pillow menus, Free Wi-Fi, A/C units, and minibars. Decor throughout the property is ho-hum, but it does include colorful Spanish accents: turquoise headboards and chairs in the rooms, orange walls and wood beam ceilings in the dining room, and coral chairs in the lobby. There’s little in the way of amenities -- just a quality breakfast buffet and meeting rooms -- but the price is right.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Los Remedios, a residential neighborhood on the west bank of the Guadalquivir River

The hotel’s location on the west bank of the Guadalquivir might not seem the most convenient, as it is not in the historic center of Seville. But this quiet area full of restaurants and bars is just across the short San Telmo and Los Remedios bridges from many of the city’s top sights, including historic Torre del Oro, Plaza de España, and the University of Seville. Other major attractions such as the Cathedral of Seville and the Archivos de Indias are less than a 15-minute walk away. Calle Betis, with its lively bars and restaurants, is a few blocks from the hotel. There are local businesses and few crowds, which makes for a more relaxed Seville experience.

Seville has a wonderful historic and cultural heritage, and the best way to explore it is on foot. However, its narrow, winding streets can be difficult to navigate without a map, so make sure to get a map at front desk. There are beautiful churches, historic buildings, and charming nooks everywhere; even the simplest door may lead to a beautiful traditional patio with whitewashed walls and flower pots bursting with flowers.

  • 32-minute drive to Seville Airport
  • 10-minute walk to historic Torre del Oro and the Guadalquivir River banks
  • 10-minute walk to Maria Luisa Park and Plaza de España historic square
  • 13-minute walk to La Maestranza bullring
  • 15-minute walk to the Cathedral and its famous Giralda tower, built in the 14th-century and still in use
  • 15-minute walk to Archivo de Indias, containing millions of antique documents, including letters from Columbus (special permission needed)
  • 22-minute walk to the Museum of Flamenco
  • 27-minute walk or 8-minute drive to Casa de Pilatos, a stunning 16th-century palace
  • 28-minute walk or 10-minute drive to Metropol Parasol, a wonderful marketplace with a great lookout point and Roman ruins
  • 9-minute drive to Santa Justa train station, where high-speed trains stop
  • 10-minute drive to Basilica de la Macarena, one of Seville’s most famous churches

 Bottom Line

The 68-room Monte Carmelo is a solid mid-range pick in Los Remedios neighborhood, a local area outside the city center (but still within a 15-minute walk of most major attractions). Clean, spacious rooms feature flat-screen TVs, pillow menus, Free Wi-Fi, A/C units, and minibars. Decor throughout the property is ho-hum, but it does include colorful Spanish accents: turquoise headboards and chairs in the rooms, orange walls and wood beam ceilings in the dining room, and coral chairs in the lobby.
