Great apartment, great location
The apartment is very comfortable (actually, we didn't need 2 bedrooms, but were very happy to have 2 bathrooms!). The kitchen is small but functional, and we used it for breakfast each morning, and our afternoon "snacks" after walking all day. The apartment is a few blocks from the edge of the historic downtown, which means is quieter than being in the downtown, and there are local restaurants and a market which is not packed with tourist. The apartment is quiet, and on the 3rd floor (there is an elevator). Isabel, the manager, was very helpful and made sure we got a complete overview of everything when we arrived. And, there is a washer and dryer! It was a very comfortable place for us to stay.
Great stay in Seville
The apartment was nice, quite, clean and comfortable. Located close to the major city highlights. Kitchen was well equipped. Easy check-in and check-out. Our hosts, Isabel was very helpful and accessible. I would recommend this to travelers.
Wonderful apartment close to train station and historic area
My family (2 adults/2 teenagers) stayed at Isabel's property during our holiday in Spain. The apartment is as described and within a short walking distance to the main attractions including the Alcazar, cathedral and Bario Santa Cruz which is filled with restaurants, shops and tapas bars. No need to figure out the public transportation, everything can be seen on foot. The apartment had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The washer and dryer were a plus! Isabel was quick to respond to emails/texts prior to visit and was very helpful upon arrival providing maps and tourist guides for the beautiful city of Seville. The building is quiet and the neighborhood is safe. I would agree with other reviews about the sewer smell but again, sometimes that happens in older buildings and can easily be reduced by closing toilet lids and bathroom doors, overall, not a huge issue at all. I would definitely recommend this apartment and I would stay here again should my travels allow me to visit Seville again. Thank you, Isabel, for making our stay in Seville remarkable.
Wonderful space and walking distance to everything
The house worked perfect for our family of 4 (kids 11&14). It was walkable from the train station and then easily walkable to everything in central Seville. The apartment was clean and spacious and the kitchen was well equipped. A good Grocery store was nearby. We were there for the first part of Semana Santa and even managed to see the Easter parade from the church just down the street as it came out of the church. A wonderful visit.
Thank you very much!😊
Beautiful apartment in seville
Well positioned apartment in Seville,. Would definitely recommend the apartment to others.
Safe, easy route to walk to apartment from the train station, 10-15 minutes and with children : ) .
Owner was more than helpful.
Would also recommend Seville at Christmas time.
Superb place to eat breakfast before sightseeing only a couple of minutes from apartment.
Todo perfecto. Muchas gracias por vuestra estancia! 😊
Good location away from the tourist hordes, but city center close enough to walk
This apartment is just outside of the mostly pedestrian old city center which is crammed with tourists & tourist traps, and we consider that location a plus. One can still walk to the Cathedral & the Alcazar in less than 15 minutes. Near the apartment is Seville's financial district, which has a number of nice restaurants to choose from. There are lots of nearby grocery stores. If you want a cheap but excellent Spanish breakfast, turn left out the font door heading towards the main street, on the corner across from you on your side street is a large cafeteria . An excellent cappuccino and a fresh squeezed orange juice will cost only 3 Euros for both, and they also sell a "lunch menu deal " for 8.50 euros a person. No tourists here.
About the apartment, the owner Isabel is pleasant but requires you to pay in person in cash rather than by CC in advance, unlike the 3 other apartments we rented in Spain thru Trip advisor, (this maybe a problem for some). When the hot water kettle broke, she promptly offered to buy a new one and bring it over, which was very nice. She ordered a Taxi for us for our departure. She lives in a different neighborhood, and can only give you generic neighborhood restaurant advice. The apartment is clean and comfortable, but not large, about 25% of it is hallway. We are not certain why the apartment receives such a high rating, as it was not up to the standards of the other 3 Spanish apartments we rented on this trip for about the same nightly rate. As one other reviewer has commented, one of the bathrooms (not the master) has an very bad odor, whether from the sewer or mold or both we are unsure ( the bathroom was clean). Since we were just a couple, we tried to use the master bathroom as much as possible to avoid the smell. I slept in the twin room and my wife the master, she found the Queen bed (newer?) to be comfortable, but I found the twin beds to have sad old mattresses, with saggy springs. The sheets came undone from the bed by the 3rd night, so I had to remake the bed and got a close look at its make up. Definitely time to be replaced. With these improvements, we would recommend this apartment.
One last note, the apartment is on the second floor and has an elevator. However the elevator appears to be TURNED OFF beginning in the late evening (time unknown, 11.00pm?) and is turned back on after 9am. We discovered this a bit late on a Sunday morning as we had to carry our 4 bags down the stairs.
Hello Richard! I don't understand your comment about the elevator. It works all the time. Maybe there was a problem that day. This morning I have bought two new twin beds. You couldn't pay by credit card when you made the reservation because homeaway changed the conditions and it was very confuse but now you can pay the total price by credit card. Thank you very much for your reservation .
Ideal to know the city by walking . Perfectly communicated, near the station of trains and buses.
Placed in one of the principal arteries of the city in an agreeable environment surrounded with gardens, monuments, restaurants, shops, bars...
