We're also thinking of visiting Seville, although tbh have been thinking of it for a long time. Really ought to get around to doing it. Being only a few hours away we'll drive there. Can anybody recommend a midrange hotel in a good location from which to walk out and explore which also has car parking.

We stayed at the Hotel Becquer in Seville. Mid-range, underground carpark, swimming pool on the roof with fantastic views and a bar. Right near the 'modern' end of Seville with department stores etc and a short tram ride or ten minute walk from the cathedral, Alcazar, Plaza Espanol etc etc.

Absolutely. It impressed me more than all the other places. I think it is the longest permanently used palace in Europe. If you liked the Alhambra you will love it. The architecture is similar and the interior is particularly good as it has not faded like the Alhambra.

Thanks for the hotel suggestions. No excuse not to plan a visit now.

Just got back from 5 amazing days in sunny Seville. We stayed at the Hotel Becquer too and would definitely recommend it, we walked everywhere but did on average 15km a day so lots of walking!

Top things for me were.
The Cathedral - if you are physically able, climb to the top of the bell tower for amazing views of the city
The Palace Alcazar - queues were massive in the morning, less so in the afternoon, if you want to avoid the queues completely book online before you go and you can walk straight in
Plaza de Espana
Maria Luisa park - big, beautiful and shady
Wander the streets of Triana

It is a beautiful city and in between visits to the attractions we just ambled the streets, stopping for a drink and people watched. Found eating and drinking out, very reasonably priced too. Tapas, tapas and more tapas....oh and sangria. 30 degrees plus every day and warm enough in the evenings to sit outside to eat and stroll around in a little summer dress with no need for jumpers and jackets. If you haven't already been, go, you will not be disappointed.
