Seville

sunny

The hotel in Seville proved to be quite the quaint little place to stay, complete with knight's armour, spears, swords and a nice dark and moody interior in the waiting room. The location was convenient, in the heart of the touristy gothic quarters, only a minute's walk from the Real Alcazar and the huge Cathedral! We visited the Alcazar on the first day and would have to count that as one of the highlights of the trip thus far. The mosaic interiors and the amazing gardens were a great way to aclimatise (that spelling doesn't seem right) to the rather hot weather!

I'll have to keep the rest of this entry short, because internet time is running out.

We had some better luck with food in Seville, scoring beautiful paellas on our second day, which are so far the best food we have had! The prices were generally a lot cheaper than Barcelona too, especially for wine, which we have found as cheap as 80 cents a glass, not much more expensive than water!

We had a nice flamenco experience also at La Carboneria, a bar where people from the audience do the dancing - probably not the best quality performance, but still a whole lot of fun!

The Cathedral was a great visit. I finally realised that our youth cards can be used for student discounts, which saved us about 13 Euros! We walked to the top of the Giralda as well, for some nice views of the city, although we were rather exhausted when we got there! Fortunately the climb doesn't involve steps, but rather 35 ramps, because some person who it was built for took his horse up the top!

Well, I'll leave it at that for now. We are in Cordoba at the moment, but I'll tell you more about that later!

What hotel? and, what price? dan davis

The hotel was Hotel Murillo. Prices from 43 Euros per night for single occupancy or 55 for doubles. It's only officially a two star hotel, but gets good reviews from customers and is in a very convenient spot.
