It’s been more than a month since my Spanish getaway and I still couldn’t get over the excitement of my first-ever European trip.
I just love Spain: the food, the people, the architecture and the culture totally blew me away.

But a lot of the positive experience I had can be directly attributed to the awesome hotel we stayed at for the greater duration of the trip.
Melia Lebreros, a four-star accommodation, may not be the best, and the most high-end hotel in Sevilla, but when it comes to location, service and value for money, it will give other more esteemed hotels a run for their money.
Located at the heart of Sevilla, Melia Lebreros is quite accessible to almost all places of interest in the city. It is about 8-15 minutes (or 8-10) euros away from Plaza de Espana, Seville Cathedral, and the historic center.
It is about four kilometers from the Isla Magic theme park and the gypsy quarter of town called Triana. It is about 10 minutes away from both the Santa Cruz and La Macarena districts of Sevilla.
The hotel is also close to all various modes of transport in and out of Sevilla. It is a mere 400 meters away from the Santa Justa station where you can take the AVE or high speef train to Madrid and other parts of Spain. It is also close to the Sevilla San Pablo airport.
Should you need to shop during your trip, you can literally cross the street to the nearby El Corte Ingles and the Nervion Plaza.
Melia Lebreros has a total of 437 rooms including five junior suites, five family roooms and a premium floor. Each roo, has a king-size bed or two single beds, a 37-inch LCD TV, mini bar and free wifi. The rooms are kept clean every day and the staff are very polite and accommodating.
I had some trouble with our room assignment and I had to add an extra bed and the front desk staff helped me. Just a note though, a lot of hotel employees in Spain do not speak English at all so it will be helpful if you bring with you some useful Spanish words and phrases.
When it comes to amenities and add-on attractions, Melia Lebreros is also impressive.
It has a gorgeous outdoor pool measuring 270 square meters and a disco bar at the ground floor. It also has a 24/7 gym available to all guests.
For dining options, the Arcos restaurant at the 1st floor, serves buffet breakfast and it boasts of mixed international, Andalusian and Mediterranean cuisine line-up.
The Taverna La Dehesa located right beside Melia Lebreros is a great, if a bit pricey dining option in Sevilla. The restaurant has a bullfighting theme/ design for its interiors and it serves tapas and jamons from Huelva. It also prides in wines ordered from as far as Cadiz.
For the service and the amenities and its proximity to everything that’s important, I think the price range of Melia Lebreros is justified.
My colleague and I stayed at a classic room with king size bed and we paid for about 160 Euros inclusive of buffet breakfast for two.
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay in Melia Lebreros and if I ever get the chance to go back to Seville, I will definitely come back and stay there again.
