The Hotel Becquer was formerly part of the Best Western chain, but is now part of the worldwide Utell consortium of hotels. The moderately sized property was built in 1973, and its six floors and 139 rooms were recently renovated. The standard rooms at the Becquer are fine, nothing too fancy but not too plain either. Our average-sized room with two single beds had TV, mini-bar, air conditioning, marble bath with hairdryer, and various toiletries. Upon entering our room, we were pleasantly surprised by a welcome fruit basket and chocolates on our pillows. Our room had a small balcony with a city view of the street and the vertical signage of the hotel.
The Hotel Becquer has two restaurants on-site, and you can enjoy the tasty buffet breakfast in one of them (the breakfast was included with our room rate when the hotel was still a Best Western, and this appears to still be the case). If you are driving, the hotel has car parking in its lower level.
The popular mid-level property is a typical European-style hotel that is suitable for the business traveler or the leisure visitor. It enjoys a very good location in central Sevilla that is hard to beat.
