Lagos to Seville (Again!)

I had to go to Seville by car again this week from Lagos.

Trip took 2hrs 45 minutes from Lagos Pingo Doce Supermarket to the Leflet Hotel Castilleja, Castilleja de la Cuesta. This is situated just of the Seville/Huelva/Algarve motorway (A49), on the main street of the town of Castilleja de la Cuesta about 3 minutes by car from IKEA and about 12 minutes by car from Estacion da Armas Bus Station, Seville.

The price for a double room, booked over the net, via was in the order of €45 per night including free car park (one steep entrance though...not for the faint hearted). It also include free wifi but the room we were in was at the extremity of the hotel and reception was bad.

We had to drive to our meetings but for those who wish to take public transport, I was informed by the hotel reception that there are regular buses from circa 07:00 till past midnight into Estacion da Armas Bus Station.

Full Address:

Hotel Leflet Castilleja
C/Real 106
Castilleja de la Cuesta


The Hotel was extremely clean and there is a cafe next door where one can get coffee and breakfast.

The good thing about the hotel is that it is not far of the motorway. Its a bit of a fiddle getting to the hotel because of one way streets but only takes 5 minutes. Its ideal for those who do not want to face the traffic of Seville.

We also dined on evening in Central Seville at the San Marco Italian Restaurant on C/Cuna 6, 41004 Sevilla.

Great Atmosphere, Good food and for Seville prices were reasonable and service good.
