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.

Mark would be 4 if ......it was a 3 star hotel
Reviewed 4 days ago

Beautifully restructured but too many things not good for a 4 star hotel.
Basically no service with luggage. We’ve not been informed about renovation works ongoing, with a drill which started at 8.30 in the morning. A welcome letter inviting to visit the roof garden.....but it was closed for renovation. Room was a bit little but all rooms have windows on the internal courtyard which oblige you to keep the curtains closed if you want to move around on your pants!
It’a quite central but if you visit Sevilla by car it’s a bit complicated because it’s impossible to stop in front of the hotel and when you finally call the hotel to ask for the nearest parking, you’ve to carry the luggage until the hotel with no elevator or escalator from the parking to the ground floor.

Excellent Boutique Hotel

This is a beautifully maintained Hotel. Located in the center of old town (perfect location). Walking distance to all site seeing spots. The hotel is clean. Beds are very comfortable, which is important to me as I like getting a restful sleep when traveling. Staff is great and very hospitable. Breakfast bar is excellent. The rooftop bar is very relaxing. Overall experience was excellent.

Would not stay here again or recommend

Hotel staff’s amount of caring = -1. Complicated light system that nobody bothered to show us, and we were in the dark for for the first 15 minutes. Complicated heating system which no one bothered to show us, and we were in a sauna for an hour. Room too small for two people to move around in. They insisted we only need two towels and two glasses even though we repeatedly asked for more. And one of the two glasses that was provided with the room had nasty residue in the bottom of the glass with a dirty stirring straw still in it! Overwhelming sewer smell for an entire day that they insisted was coming from the street, which it absolutely was not. Hairdryer is the worst I’ve ever seen. It breaks your thumb and wrist to try to dry your hair! Their rooftop bar is closed several days of the week - Sunday through Tuesday! There are a lot of choices, I would not stay here.

Fantastic Boutique Hotel

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at this lovely hotel, we were given an upgrade to a Superior suite which was so appreciated. The room was spotless and nice white bath robes were laid on the bed on entry. Great touch of 'Lindt chocolate' with your tea and coffee. We were given a voucher for 2 free drinks up on the top terrace. I had the cava which came in a small bottle and would have been 4.5e, my hubby had a pint of beer another welcome touch. The hotel is beautiful inside and in an excellent location. We went on the 'open top bus tour' which we would well recommend. If you book it through Booking.com you get an extra 10% off. You do have to go to stop number 1 to get your tickets though. You can't just get on the bus with your code off your mobile. We really enjoyed Seville.. This hotel is a superb place to stay!

Excellent botique hotel close to monuments and shopping.

We spent 4 very pleasant nights in this excellent hotel in an old palace. The staff were attentive and helpful, the room very comfortable and the breakfast of a high standard. It is close to the main attactions, the main shopping district and an abundance of places to eat. We would not hestitate to stay there again if we returned to Seville.
