5* Seville Hotels
Five star hotels in Seville should offer the most comfort, with the largest rooms. Expect a very high level of customer service and to be helped with most any (reasonable) need. All those extras you want to do should be there: enjoy a breakfast buffet, call room service late at night, maybe a get a spa treatment or massage, or enjoy a dip in the pool (in most cases).

4* Seville Hotels
Four star hotels in Seville should offer a higher level of comfort, with significantly larger rooms than one, two and three stars. Expect higher service levels and extra amenities in most cases. In the cases of the really good four star hotels, expect them to be similar in services as those in the five star rating. But beware that there is a wide variety of quality within the four star rating so it is wise to read the reviews.

3* Seville Hotels
The three star category was suffering for a while in Seville. Whether it was the requirements or the demand, there were few options in this category five years ago. Things have changed, and now you can find several good options. You'll get breakfast service (often at an extra charge) and a little more comfort. Prices should be more reasonable as well. Do expect a drop off in extra services when compared to four and five star hotels.

2* Seville Hotels
There has always been a lot to choose from in the two star category in Seville. These should be a step above one star hotels and nice hostals, often with some additional services such as breakfast. Rooms can be small, but larger than a hostal. You will of course get a private bath as well as air conditioning and heating (any establishment in Seville classified as a hotel must have these amenities). There are some cozy little two stars in Seville which offer a very good value.

1* Seville Hotels
When you are looking for cheap and hopefully clean accommodation with a little more than a hostal. Expect minimum services and rooms just a little bigger than some hostals. As mentioned above, always expect a private bathroom, air conditioning and heat. When looking at one star hotels consider both two star and hostals as alternatives. In many cases there is not much difference in price and amenities.

Hostals in Seville
There are plenty of alternatives when it comes to budget accommodation in Seville. Hostals are not to be confused with youth hostels or backpacker hostels. Think of hostals as small, often family run hotels. The key difference between hostals and backpacker hostels are that all rooms are private: you will not share your sleeping quarters with other guests. Also do not be fooled by the category: some hostals are nicer than 1 and 2 star hotels. But then again, there may be some 1 and 2 star hotels which are cheaper than some hostals. In general the rooms will be smaller than rooms in hotels. Also note in Seville there are very few hostals (when compared to other cities) which offer breakfast service.

Pensions in Seville
Pensiones, or in my Spanglish, pensions, are often a little cheaper than hostals. Like the above hostals, you will not share your sleeping quarters with other guests. However, many of these type of establishments may only offer rooms with shared bath and perhaps without air conditioning and/or heating. But understand this depends on each establishment: some pensiones may offer air conditioning, heating and a private bath in the room. So always check the details for services and amenities that you may be looking for before deciding on whether this type of accommodation will work for you!

Over the last three to four years a good number of these establishments have opened in Seville. These backpacker hostals cater to the younger crowd and the cheapest option for sleeping is in a room with other travelers, normally in bunk beds. In this case you get a locker to store your stuff securely. Many times you can arrange for a private room if you pay more. Expect additional services such as kitchen facilities, washing machines and internet access, while several may have their own bar and larger chill out spaces to mix and mingle with other people. Some have activities planned such as bar or tapas tours. The pros are perhaps a more social atmosphere and the additional services for independent travelers. The cons: a lack of privacy as well as the possibility of a more rowdy atmosphere.
