    Historical Traveler Reviews La Casa del Maestro Seville

    Excellent find in Seville

    from

    My wife and I recently stayed in this lovely hotel for a couple nights while we visited Seville. We booked one of the "little double rooms," and we were actually pretty lucky with this (from what I see on other reviews). We got the one on the top floor, which we were told was the biggest of the "little rooms." We had plenty of space in that room. No, there wasn't room for a table and chair, but just next to the roof deck, so we just sat outside in the great weather when we wanted to sit and relax. Most of the time, however, we were out exploring what Seville had to offer.

    The little double rooms were definately more within our budget... but when you book the rooms on their site you either pick a "suite" or a "little double room," so we assumed we were getting a tiny room when we booked (luckily it wasn't tiny).

    Anyway, the staff was terrific. They were very helpful and they even told us about a great inexpensive tapas bar within a 2 block walk from the hotel. We ended up eating lunch there every day.

    Breakfast was very good, and the coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice (done every morning) were terrific.

    The only bad thing I can put is about the church nearby with the belltower. It does ring through the night. Luckily, I am a heavy sleeper so I slept through it, but it did keep my wife up a bit.

    Mostly good, BUT be aware....

    from

    We booked 4 nights at this hotel following great reviews on here and the photo's on their site. We chose to pay for the smaller of the two rooms at 112 euros, as this was already at the top of our budget. We arrived and were warmly welcomes and introduced to the facilities by the staff. We were taken to our double room, and were astonished by the tiny proportions of the room - the double bed took up 90% of the room with just a foot wide space around it to get to the bathroom (which was of reasonable size and nicely done). The dimensions were about 8 foot square, on account of the bathroom of the room next door, a far larger one, impinded into the space of this room. very bad design this, aimed at packing many rooms into limited space.

    Needless to say, there is no room for chairs or a table, which when you are on anything more than a stop-over would be nice to relax in your room, something which we couldnt do, unless being forced to sit on the bed is your thing. They supply a gown and slippers each, but these stayed untouched in the cupboard - where would I want wear them to relax in?! The other major thing to point out about this hotel, mentioned elsewhere, is the noise. Admittedly our room was unfortuntely right next to the maid's servicing room but they are not at all quiet as they go about the work up and down the hotel throughout the whole day as the sound just echoes up and down the central atrium which runs from bottom to the top floor.

    Another thing to bear in mind, though not the fault of the hotel, is that the building has a tall bell tower next door which, incredibly, chimes on the hour throughout the whole night. We didn't sleep well.

    Ok, that's the negatives out the way. The hotel itself is actually very nicely done, lovely decoration throughout in a traditional style, and a lovely roof terrace to sit at. The staff are friendly English speakers, and particularly the one chap who works there and literally seemed to work a 12 hour day doing everything: a porter, cleaner, waiter, cook, and tourist advisor in one. Amazing. The continental breakfast included in the price (selection of bread, ham, cheese, jam and tea/coffee) was also nice. Its location was also very good, centrally located and near the sites and to many good bars and restaurants. Nice touches like a jug of iced water served in your room each evening and fresh flowers in the bathroom.

    But, sadly, we simply wouldn't go back, as the room's matchbox size really did spoil an otherwise perfect stay. I just wish their website had been less misleading and pictured our [box] room and not given the impression that all rooms are of a good size. If you can afford the expense (and it is expensive over a long weekend) stay here, but pay extra for a larger room.

    Great place to stay

    from

    We just got back and cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We were there for 5 nights. The first night was in an awful room but it was all that was left when we arrived in the evening. We expressed dismay and they were wonderful about getting us moved into one of the best rooms in the hotel for the balance of our stay. Perfect location, lovely room and common areas, and friendly folks.

    Tolles Hotel

    from

    Kommen gerade erst wieder und können das Hotel gar nicht genug loben. Waren für5 Nächte dort. In der ersten Nacht hatten wir ein schreckliches Zimmer, konnten aber ein anderes haben. Wir hatten uns nämlich beschwert und bekamen daraufhin eines der besten zimmer im Haus - damit wurde der Aufenthalt perfekt. Tolle Lage, bezauberndes Zimmer und schöne Gemeinschaftsbereiche, freundliche Angestellte.

    Very charming place!

    from

    Just returned from a two night stay in Seville at Hotel Casa del Maestro (March 7 - 9)...really would have preferred a few more nights here, truth be told. This is a very small hotel, but the staff are respectful of privacy - never felt like we were in a "bed and breakfast" type environment (a little too familiar for me)...beds were really comfortable, great sheets, nice toiletries and special little touches like the fresh flowers and pitcher of ice water in the pm make this hotel special...staff were very helpful, especially Alexis, who we found to be extremely kind!

    One caveat - our room did not look like the pictures on the internet - was quite fine, but very small with two twin beds pushed together..I think you should contact the hotel directly and request one of the larger rooms (if you book online, you may not have this opportunity). We had the choice of two rooms, one very very small and one very small..we chose the latter.

    All in all, a great little hotel - not for everyone's taste (it is pretty "old world", not sleek and new like some of the more modern choices)..but impeccably clean, wonderful breakfasts, very elegant service and a great location..would recommend happily!

    Loved La Casa del Maestro

    from

    Totally agree with all the other reviewers. Cannot fault this hotel at all. Loads of character, very friendly staff and a perfect location for all the sights Seville has to offer. It's also only a 2 to 5 minute walk from the Escuelas Pias underground parking complex (cost us just 36 euros to park for 2 days and nights). The beauty of this parking complex is that it is very clearly signposted if you're coming into Seville on the main A92 road from Antequera, Granada or Malaga. Our room was lovely and a fine size with plenty of room for a king size bed, sofa and coffee table. I notice that only Americans, who may be used to bigger rooms, have said that the rooms are small. Shower was fantastic too and the bathroom also has a great selection of complimentary toiletries. Breakfast not huge but adequate and very good quality - best coffee we had in Spain, freshly squeezed orange juice and a large toasted roll served with ham, cheese, jam and pates. If you do get hungry later on in the morning go and get yourself some very unhealthy but very tasty churros with chocolate!

    Fabulous hotel

    from

    have just returned from a wonderful stay at the elegant casa del maestro. very friendly service, beautifully appointed and very tastefully decorated room with a comfortable king size bed.

    breakfast was delicious. can't really fault the place! it's in a super location just a few minutes from the centre, but is really quiet. lots of great places to eat within a couple of minutes of the hotel. we are vegetarian and expected to have real trouble finding veggie-friendly places, but we needn't have worried. for any veggies reading this, stay at casa del maestro and search out the many bars and restaurants in the area around plaza santa catalina. we found about 6 places which had plenty of veggie options, including los tres terceros, ajo bianco (practically next door to the hotel), vegetarium, la huerta, also la habanita and la sopa de ganso in alfalfa district, 5 mins from hotel.

    loved seville, so much to see, but for an extra treat get on the 'ave' fast train from seville and go to cordoba, about 40 mins away. another brilliant place!

    Very Charming

    from

    The reviewer before me took the words out of my mouth. The rooms are small, but you can overlook it when you have robes, slippers, Escada soaps and a rooftop terrace (that we used both nights and even hosted friends). It's a 10-minute walk to the cathedral, but you don't notice the time because you are marveling at the winding, cobble-stoned streets.

    One drawback---I suggest asking for an upper floor room as the hotel staff working in the morning is echoed throughout (they do not seem to make great efforts to keep their voices down).

    from

    Dies ist ein tolles Hotel, ca. 10 Gehminuten von der Kathedrale und Alcazar entfernt. Es ist ca. 2 Jahre alt, deshalb war auch alles noch frisch und neu. Unser Zimmer war etwas klein, hatte aber einen separaten Wohnbereich mit Sesseln und Lampen. Viel Liebe zum Detail: Terry Bademäntel, Seife von Escada, rund um die Uhr Zugang ins Internet, jeden Abend kam eine Karaffe mit kaltem Wasser ins Zimmer geliefert. Jeden Morgen gab es ein super Frühstück und man konnte es auf der wunderschönen Dachterrasse genießen. Almude 5 Seville ---lacasadelmaestro---

    from

    This is a GREAT hotel about a 10-minute walk to Seville's cathedral and alcazar area. It's about two years old, so everything is fresh and new. Our room, while on the small side, had a separate sitting area with chairs and a reading lamp. Lots of attention to detail: terry robes, Escada soaps, 24-hour internet, a pitcher of ice water delivered each evening. A terrific breakfast was included and you could eat on the lovely rooftop garden.

    Left the beach at Sanlucar de Barrameda around 10 and drove for 2 hours to Puerto de Gelves which has motorhome parking at the marina, €15.00 including showers, electricity and Wi-Fi. The drive was a reminder how these dry weather countries adapt to irrigation techniques. All along the drive there were conventional dykes with pumps and diverters to keep the crops in some places there was a raised channel ...

    We pulled up next to an impressive fountain commemorating Christopher Columbus and his trip to the America’s. It was here we learned that Seville is one of the sites of filming for Game of Thrones Season 5, more specifically it is chosen as the kingdom of Dawn.

    ... the Game of Thrones was shooting their next episode. Although it was disappointing we couldn't see the whole castle (mostly just for our teacher), we were all pretty pumped knowing the cast of Game of Thrones was right on the other side of the wall. After we toured through the castle (which was still huge even after only seeing half of it) we took a walk to go see Plaza de España. Once we got there our teacher asked us if the place looked familiar. It actually did ...
