What We Love

  • The rooftop bar and solarium with views across Seville
  • Cooling open courtyard with a ceramic tile fountain
  • Welcoming downstairs bar that combines global touches with a traditional Andalusian vibe

What To Know

  • This is a relatively recently gentrified area, and although it's the hip place to be, some might still find it a little gritty
  • No on-site restaurant
  • One barman covers both the ground-level and rooftop bars
  • It’s a 10-minute walk to Seville’s centre, the Giralda and the cathedral
  • The central streets of Seville are narrow and tricky for newcomers to drive through
  • WiFi is available for an additional $8 per day

Overview

The Review

In the artsy San Lorenzo district of the city, the 26-room Casa Romana is a grand and light-filled sanctuary away from Seville’s busy streets. Part boutique hotel and part history lesson, the interiors retrace the city’s past, from the Roman-inspired marble statues in the lobby to the Moorish details in the tiled fountains and patterned doors. There’s a nod to the reconquering Christians in the religious paintings and coats of arms in the bar area, while modern Spain itself is on full display from the rooftop pool area, which has views of the city’s new architectural creations.

From the comfort of the small pool or a sun lounger, you can see the curves of Seville’s latest monument: the Espacio Metropol Parasol. You can also see the symbol of Seville, La Giralda – the latticed mosque-turned-cathedral tower, standing out between the city’s white rooftops and mustard-yellow church spires.

Guestrooms are smartly but simply done up in beige and white, with extras like fluffy bathrobes and both a bathtub and a shower. The public spaces show a little more flair in royal blues and greens, plus dark wood furniture that’s more for show than afternoon lazing. The lovely breakfast introduces the staples of Andalusia — bread, tomatoes and jamon — while at the other end of the day, there’s the aptly named Roof Bar, as well as a more formal option downstairs.

As for location, the Casa Romana has it made. Turn one way to reach the trendiest tapas bars in the city; turn the other to take in the key sights of Seville: the bullring, the cathedral, flamenco and Santa Cruz neighbourhood. All roads may no longer lead to Rome, but in Seville they pretty much lead to the Casa Romana.

As the other reviews say, really well placed,bed comfortable and shower great. Weather couldn’t have been better and I have never been to a place with so many fantastic buildings and especially Churches...walk into the Plaza del Salvador and your jaw will drop.
If I were going back to Seville,and I might,then I would have no problem going back to this hotel.
We got an Uber from the airport which was about 16 euro, apparently a taxi is double that according to staff at the hotel.We like to get a tourist bus around for one day and the green buses are cheaper than the red but we found them to be excellent.
So our room was clean , comfortable albeit a bit dark,but as ever you are only sleeping and showering there.
So all in all excellent......

Highly recommend

Just spent 4 nights at the Casa Romana.... lovely hotel with friendly staff. Rooftop a little disappointing... no bar and unable to use the pool despite the warm weather. I imagine it would be lovely in the summer.
Rooms spacious and clean.
Hotel central to most attractions.

very good choice

Located bang in the centre of Seville about 100 yds from Cortes ingles the main department store. Location is perfect for shopping and sightseeing which is all within walking distance.. On a small side street the rooms are built around internal courtyards and whilst there are no outside windows the windows face internally on to the inside courtyard. The great benefit of this is no street noise. Very clean, reasonable sized rooms makes this a go to place.

So, what do we think of Seville so far .... our hotel is in the right area fairly close to all the main attractions, they are walkable but remember once there , your doing a lot more walking.

The hotel is comfortable, clean and breakfast is an assortment of hot and cold.

It’s a shame the roof terrace bar is closed because it would have been lovely to sit up there this afternoon with temps of 24d.

Our room had a spa bath which after a hard days walking seemed Like a great idea, but use at your peril, I’m not fat by no means but I think the bath is meant for skinny people, as one bit of the spa sucked my flesh in 😮😮 left me with a nice bruise on my leg, but you have to laugh 😂

We got the red bus city sightseeing two day ticket. Did the whole route to get bearings then decided which stop to get off for which sites we wanted to see. The old Jewish quarter behind the cathedral was amazing, just go and get lost in the labyrinth of streets.

On the whole Seville is a beautiful city well worth a short city break

Overpriced Bar

We didn't stay in the hotel, but visited the bar recently. We ordered gin and tonic in the bar. Although they didn't have gin OR tonic we requested, the drinks were were okay. However, we were surprised when we were charged 12 euros for each drink. We have tried this drink at various places around Sevilla and it's never that expensive. The surroundings are comfortable and modest. They should consider bringing their cocktail prices in line with comparable establishments.
