Las Casas de la Juderia4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This boutique hotel is quirky and old fashioned. You really feel like you are in a Spanish time warp staying in this wonderful hotel. It feels like it only has a few rooms in the hotel as all are built in a type of warren...which feels very authentic. We stayed in a double room which was one of the most beautiful I have ever stayed in. Large over-grown palms and lots of dark heavy wood... This is not over the top luxury but what it lacks with that it makes up with in character. I really liked the little quaint lounge where one could while away a few hours pre-dinner with a mystery novel and a stiff gin and tonic. It opens out into the heart of old Sevilla on to a plethora of tapas bars, restaurants and warm sultry heat. Stay here - you will feel like a character in a Spanish Raymond Chandler novel...
This hotel is like a maze, with rooms up and down stairs, going in every direction. The rooms and the beds themselves were of a high standard and the bathroom lovely. We also appreciated access to a pool as it was 42 degrees on the days we were there and it was wonderful to cool down after our tours with a swim in the pool. Breakfast was in a section that was underground. Beautifully decorated and a wide range of food, including some hot selections. The hotel was handy to the Cathedral so was great to walk around. This is certainly a hotel I would come back to stay.
This hotel was the most unique hotel, I have ever stayed at! With underground tunnels that connect places and tons of patios scattered along the hotel grounds, it is a place I would for sure recommend for everyone. The hotel rooms were a very nice size, with a mini fridge, a large bathroom, and a bathtub with jets. There is also a nice pool on the rooftop, which I went to everyday, after touring. The location was wonderful, it was right in the heart of the city, but wasn't noisy at night! My whole family had an amazing stay here and would definitely come back here again, despite the fact we did get lost a few times😉!!!!
Accommodating staff (they surprised us with a bottle of chilled Champagne on my birthday)... beautiful rooftop pool with interesting crowd, a respite from the intense July heat... We walked out of the hotel and into Santa Maria la Blanca, an absolutely beautiful church... easy walk to the Cathedral and Alcazar. Don't miss Italiica, ancient Roman birthplace of Trajan and Hadrian, just a few miles outside of Seville (easy bus or cheap taxi). All in all, a uniquely beautiful and historically interesting hotel just a few steps from the heart of everything you want to see in Seville.
Las casas de la Juderia is the coolest place I've stayed for ages! The whole hotel is made up of a series of Jewish houses, connected by a tunnel filled with curiosities and stunning patios overflowing with plants and quaint objects. The rooms are lovely. Ours (an economy double) had a very large bed, fridge, wardrobe, safe and bathroom with both shower and bath, his and hers sinks, toilet, etc. The bath had jacuzzi jets too! The ample sized pool on the roof is set within a gorgeous sun terrace with nice views of the rooftops. There's a bar up there which serves food and drink. The decor of the hotel is just so interesting and they've made a real effort to capture the spirit of Seville from days gone by. The hotel is ideally situated for the cathedral and the Real Alcazar. There are some very good, very reasonable restaurants within a stone’s throw. We had a lovely evening across the road drinking cheap beer and watching the locals do flamenco. We saw very few children staying here which we enjoyed. I'd definitely recommend this hotel!
Traveled with my teenage daughter on vacation in Spain. Location is convenient and walkable to all major attractions, staff is super helpful, breakfast buffet is great. Rooms are well appointed, clean, and spacious. We liked the pool on the roof as well. Would definitely stay there again.
We chose this hotel due to its uniqueness as well as being in an ideal position to explore Seville. It's quite a maze of tunnels and is spread over 3 buildings, we were in a separate building to the main reception so had fun exploring the grounds. The room was spacious and clean, if a little tired looking in places, but this added to the charm. Air con worked well, decent sized bathroom and shower, tv, hair dryer and safe all supplied, didn't have much noise from other travellers. Friendly staff available to ask for directions/advice on trips etc. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel as there were plenty of cafes outside with great food for better prices, but we did frequent the Piano Bar where the barman made a mean cocktail!
This is a lovely hotel made up of houses with interlocking courtyards and narrow outdoor passages. When you first get shown to your room it can feel like a maze but a beautiful one. You need to explore the corners. It is a hidden gem that doesn't shout about itself on the roadside, and it is so close to everything in Seville centre. On a 40degC day, our room was wonderfully cool and was so easy to get back to for a cool down between explores of the city. Slight downsides to mention; the noise travels between rooms (at least in room 70) so we did suffer a bit from late night returners and the sound of water in pipes / cisterns filling. Also the reception staff weren't as accommodating as in some hotels but they did speak good English. We also didn't understand the relationship with the onsite restaurant (we couldn't find a menu for it) but given so many good places to eat in Seville this didn't matter.
I recently spent three nights in Seville at Las Casas de la Juderia. As someone who regularly books rooms based off of rooms on TripAdvisor, I usually try to book a hotel in the top #25. Las Casas was ranked #34, but I decided on it because of it's history and charm. Seville in July is quite affordable, with some of the top #10 hotels being comparable in price to Las Casas. I wanted a hotel with open courtyard, great location, and character, in addition to a pool (the scorching heat is why I assume Seville is such a bargain this time of year). Las Casas definitely ticked all of those boxes. I want to say that the positives (which are spectacular) far outweigh the negatives. However, there were a few things that prevented from rating the hotel 5/5. The Positives: --This hotel is quite possibly the most unique and charming of any hotel I've ever stayed. It is a labyrinth of courtyards, walkways, water features, and tunnels. From my understanding, the hotel is composed of many building connected by these wonderful features. So much so, they give you a map and take you to your room so you don't get lost. You could spend an hour just exploring the hotel. I cannot say enough about the beauty of the grounds. It was completely surreal. --The rooftop has a gorgeous view, a generous sized pool (for a rooftop), and a snack/drink bar. --I booked a "Double" room and it was small but nice, and furnished with traditional decor. The bathroom was very generous in size, and the air conditioner worked like charm. It provided a cool respite after a hot day of sightseeing. --The location was perfect. Seville, itself, is much like Las Casas, a big maze in which you could get intentionally lost for hours. Las Casas was within 10 walking minutes to the Cathedral and the Alcazar, restaurants, and bars. --The staff was also very professional, kind, and helpful. The Negatives: Some of these may be a bit nitpicky, which is why I still gave the hotel a 4/5: --The WIFI was terrible. The only place I could find a signal was in the lobby and in one courtyard. It never worked for me up at the pool. I realize the design of the hotel would make it difficult to have WIFI in every room, but, it's 2017, and I feel like WIFI should be available everywhere. Thankfully, I had a phone with a Spanish SIM card, but if I hadn't I would've been frustrated. --The room decor, while historically relevant, seemed like it had seen better days. The bedspread was worn, and the fixtures in the bathroom were corroded. The shower head needed to be replaced. The shower itself was a dark little stall, and it needs to be regrouted and spruced up. The linens (towels and bedsheets) were a bit starchy. Also, they only provided shampoo and body wash for toiletries. I'm assuming conditioner isn't a big thing in Seville, seeing as I couldn't seem to find any small bottles the pharmacy or local market. But there was also no body lotion. This was a quick trip for me, so I didn't even think to bring conditioner or lotion because I assumed they would provide it. I ended up going to the pharmacy down the street. --The pool has limited seating, so it's hard to find more that one open seat (as I was traveling solo I didn't have to worry about that). They need someone to tidy up and take towels after a guest has left in order to open the chairs to others. The water was refreshing, but the pool itself seems like a good scrub was in order. The deck could use a good power washing. --The piano bar was closed. I assume that summer is low season, but I would've like to visit. --There was no place to get coffee around the hotel before breakfast. The room didn't even provide with instant. I booked an excursion that left before the cafes opened, and I was disappointed there was no place for me to get a coffee on site. Misc things of note: --I didn't try the breakfast because directly outside the hotel there is a lovely cafe with a nice breakfast menu for half the price of the hotel. Plus, you can sit outside. The breakfast room in the hotel is in the basement. Overall, I would certainly recommend Las Casas de la Juderia. The experience was extremely pleasant and peaceful. I think they could break the top #10 if they were to focus their energies on a couple of areas.
This Hotel was really cool with so many little courtyards. You need to explore the ground it is really cool.Also it is very close to restaurants bakery's and places to get great Cafe con lechte. I highly recommend.
