Practical tips and recommendations

Seville is one of the most beautiful and attractive cities in Spain, and an ideal destination to enjoy an unforgettable vacation. But before packing your bags and heading to the Andalusian capital, there are some things you should keep in mind to make your trip perfect. In this post we give you some practical tips and recommendations so that you can prepare your trip to Seville without problems and with the best guarantee: stay at the Hotel Cervantes , a hotel with charm, comfort and quality in the center of the city.

How to get to Seville

Seville is very well connected by different means of transport, so you can choose the one that best suits you according to your origin, budget and preferences. These are the main options:

Plane: Seville has an international airport, located about 10 km from the city center. From the airport you can get to Hotel Cervantes by taxi, bus or rental car. The taxi takes about 20 minutes. The special airport bus (EA) has a frequency of 20 minutes and leaves you at the Santa Justa station, from where you can take another bus, the metro or a taxi to the hotel. The rental car gives you more freedom and flexibility, but you must take traffic and parking into account. The Hotel Cervantes has a private parking for its clients so you can come by car to the door of the hotel and stop worrying about where to leave the car.

Train: Seville has a high-speed train station (AVE), which connects it with the main Spanish cities, such as Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Málaga or Córdoba. The station is called Santa Justa and is about 2 km from the Hotel Cervantes. From the station you can get to the hotel by taxi or bus.

Car: Seville has a good road network, which links it with the rest of Spain and Portugal. If you travel by car, you must take traffic and parking into account. The Hotel Cervantes has a private parking for its clients, as we have already said before, so a plus point if you choose to come by car.

What documents do you need to travel to Seville?

Seville is a Spanish city, so the documents you need to travel depend on your nationality and the reason for your trip. These are the most common cases:

● If you are a citizen of the European Union, the European Economic Area or Switzerland: you only need your national identity document (DNI) or your valid passport. You do not need a visa or any other document to enter or leave Spain.

● If you are a citizen of another country: you need your valid passport and, in some cases, a visa.
