Santa Cruz is the heart of Seville..and the area is full of shops and restaurants.

No need for transport from where I live..everything is walking distance

From airport there is one bus line that takes you to the center of Seville. The stop you need to get off at for my apt is called Carlos V, Prado de San Sebastian.
The train station Santa Justa is a 10-15 min walk, and a 5 min ride in a taxi.
Prado de San sebastian bus station is a 5 min walk to my apt through the Jardines de Murillo.
Plaza de armas bus station is quite far and best is a taxi.

Interaction with Guests

I love meeting my guests, its the best part of hosting, but sometimes I am out of Seville so its not always possible for a face to face meeting..

The Neighborhood

Santa Cruz is the heart of Seville and its narrow streets are magical to walk around..The gardens Jardines de Murillo and Alcazar are in walking distance and there is no need for public transport to get around Seville from my apartment. Its very central and you can see the cathedral from the balcony..

Getting around

Not really necessary, but there are buses and tram close by.

  • Alexandra (Sacha) is a perfect host. She was not in Seville when we arrived, but we met easily her cleaner, who gave us the keys. Alexandra answers very soon, by mail or by whatsapp, she is really kind, and let our luggage stay at home until we had the airplane to come back home, so that we could visit Sevilla without problems also the last day.
    Unfortunately the cleaner didn't speak english, which can be a problem for those who don't understand spanish (I am Italian, it was not impossible but a little bit hard).
    The apartment is very good located, and just downstairs there's the wonderful restaurant San Telmo: super! You can reach easily everything, in five minutes on foot the cathedral.
    Only one thing, unfortunately, was not positive: the apartment was not so clean as I expected. We have found hair on the sheets, and either in the kitchen or in the bathroom there were insects and small beetles, perhaps due to the presence of spices and open boxes. What a pity!

    Marianna, thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I am so very sorry about you not finding the apartment as clean as you were expecting. My cleaner makes sure that all the sheets and towels are clean before each guest arrives and she always tends to clean the kitchen etc and any old food that has been left behind. Sorry about the insects..sometimes of the windows are left open some flies can come in..

  • We enjoyed staying at Sasha's apartment. It is spacious and clean. The balcony and the park view is really nice. The location is unbeatable. The description and most of the reviews of this apartment are accurate: we agree with the positive comments.

    As for the negative comments - it is true that the main bed is soft and that there is street noise. But we were not too bothered about either of these things (it is a matter of taste and how you adapt).

    Two great things about this apartment that have not been mentioned by other reviewers are noteworthy:

    1. There is a SEVICI bike station within 15 metres of the front door. Cycling is a fantastic way to travel around and to get to know Sevilla. The SEVICI Station outside the front door solved all our transport issues at all hours of the day or night.

    2. The apartment is just above the entrance to the massive car park under the park. This is really useful if you are arriving to Sevilla by car. You can unload your baggage literally at the front door and then forget about the car (in our case - return it to the hire company at Santa Justa railway station which is a 10-15 min walk away).

    We would recommend Sasha's apartment.

  • Es una excelente ubicacion! Cerca de buenos restaurantes como por ejemplo "modesto", bares, bailes de flamenco. Si vas en carro tiene un estacionamiento justo abajo. El ascensor del piso no funciona, en caso de que tengas algun impedimento.

  • The apartment is in a great location with good tapas restaurant just right underneath, everything you want to see are within walking distance. The only thing is that you probably need to well arrange the shower time as the hot water run out quickly.

  • Wonderful location. Spacious clean apartment. Great communication from the host. Only warning- if you have mobility issues there are 2 flights of stairs and elevator doesn't work. For us this was not a problem at all and we would definitely stay again.

  • Alexandra's apartment is in a fantastic location, with some of Seville's best tapas right underneath and everything you want to see and more within walking distance. Before our arrival Alexandra was very helpful and we found the place easily from her directions. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Seville, although more for singles or couples without kids. We have a one year old, so were in bed earlier than most and the apartment's location (while fantastic on so many levels) meant it was quite noisy until fairly late in the evening. Nonetheless, a great space and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

  • The apartment is so central and walking distance to everything. It's large, airy and light. Great food just downstairs. The 3 of us stayed for 3 nights and loved the proximity to all the things a tourist would want to see. We didn't get to meet Alexandra but it was no probs because she was so quick to respond to any queries. Thanks for making our stay in Seville enjoyable and easy.

  • Sasha's cleaning lady welcome to us, she doesn't speak english.
    The location is great as she described, there is no lift in the building.
    Many shops and restaurant close by. We discover area walking flat almost everywhere. We went the flamenco dancer, vocal & guitar at small venue. wonderful experience. thanks

  • Unbeatable location! Only few minutes walking to "Giralda" monument. The apartment is really good and comfortable, a nice place to stay if you go to Sevilla. Everything is near, very short distance from the most important touristic spots of the city. I would repeat without any kind of doubt!! Thanks alexandra for your quick and constant attention.

  • Alexandra is very easy to communicate with, she answers to all messages instantly and we had a good connection even though we didn't have a chance to meet. The apartment is just great, it has everything you need, very well located next to Alkazar and Prado de San Sebastian bus station. We will be happy to stay here next time)

About
I am from England, but I have lived in Spain for nearly 20 years. I have lived in Madrid, Granada, Santiago de Compostela, Barcelona and now Seville .I am quite an easygoing and open person. I have been living in Seville for nearly 3 years now and I think that this city is such a paradise..And what I really like about the idea of this website is that people have the option to really get to know a place with the advantage that you get tips from locals or people who live in a certain city. Instead of paying a hotel and not knowing where to eat or go, and the great thing is meeting new people..
