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.

Stayed at the Casa Romana Hotel for a week and really enjoyed it. Hotel was a good location near restaurant and bars . We didn't have breakfast so not able to comment on that. Enjoyed the roof bar friendly staff .

Overall a Good Place to stay but a few issues ..!

We stayed for 5 nights. Overall the hotel is good. It is a beautifully restored building with high quality furniture and decor. There is a lovely roof top bar and jacuzzi and it is in the centre of town near all the restaurants and bars and about 15 minutes from the cathedral.
However check the bedroom - as our first room was tiny with no windows outside and dark with no space to sit. We complained and were moved and upgraded to a massive room still with no external window, other than a small one looking into the internal courtyard and corridor, so we decided to just stay with the nice upgrade. Water then started to pour through the bathroom ceiling ... this isn’t as bad as it sounds. We hadn’t realised until the manager came and told us. Then we were moved to a smaller room but with a lovely full French window with the sun streaming in. I must say we enjoyed sitting reading at the window with the excellent A/C on in the afternoon. Five days with no sunlight in the room would have been a trial. Maybe we could have coped with a couple of days.
We also ordered room service one evening. One appalling chicken Caesar salad costing 10 Euro came with a plastic fork. Don’t get room service and don’t have breakfast. There are millions of cafes within 2 minutes walk.
Overall I would come back again but make sure I had a room with an external window. Our final room was 303 and lovely.

A Hidden Gem

We took a bus trip of two and a half hours from Ayamonte to Seville and stayed overnight in this hotel and loved it- what is there not to like about Seville.
This hotel is approx 15 mins walk from bus station,so central and with a rooftop terrace is really such a great find. Staff pleasant and is within walking distance of plenty of small querky streets,plenty of friendly people-make sure to visit the cathedral area and take an open bus tour-wishing we had booked for longer stay- well worth a visit.

We expected more

As a part of our giftbox we were supposed to have a room for 3 or 4 persons. At least, that is what the reservation said. Unfortunately we only had a room with a bed and a bathroom and no windows to the outside. The beds were good, but we just expected more from the room. The location was good, the hotel is located in a calm street and you can go everywhere in the center by walking. At the same time the breakfast is very good and quite ellaborated. I would like to rate this hotel with 3.5, but I just do not think our experience deserved 4/5. The hotel and the staff is nice but as I said, we expected more. On the rooftop there is a bar what can give quite some noise if you stay on the third floor. The small cold water jacuzzi is nice to relax and refresh for a moment.

Nicely restored building

Considerable time was spent restoring this structure. The street entry, lobby and mezzanine were beautifully furnished. Very attentive and helpful staff. Particularly enjoyed the little court yards adorned with tile. The room was nicely furnished but very small to allow this couple to freely move around without bumping into furnishings. The breakfast service downstairs was spoiled by an arrogant waiter who made us wait for coffee. We skipped in-house breakfast after the first day and walked down the street to a great little cafe for coffee and breakfast.
