About This Listing
Great top floor apartment in the center of Seville (with elevator to front door). Just a wonderful place to stay in one of the world´s most magical cities!
Thank you for visiting my page! I hope I will have the opportunity to prove to you that I wasn´t crazy when I decided the leave New York 21 years ago and live in Seville, the most magical city in the world!
For those of you new to Airbnb (WELCOME!!!), I would just like to make sure you know that you would be renting a private room with your own personal bathroom in an apartment shared with me (yes, I´m included in the price!) as I live in another room with my own bathroom. You would have total access/use to the whole apartment (kitchen, living room, dining room, balcony, etc.) so you will not need to bring anything. Even though we share the apartment, it is YOUR apartment while you’re here and you have complete freedom to do as you like.
OK, now to the"piso":
Great top floor apartment in the center of Seville. Just a wonderful place to stay in one of the world´s most magical cities.
The apartment is right in the center of the city (very important because Seville is a “walking” city). I could have lived anywhere and picked this one because it’s a great place and is a perfection location for anyone visiting Sevilla.
You will have your own personal air-conditioned bedroom (a must in Seville!) with a queen-sized bed big enough for two. You also have your own personal bathroom and bathtub.
There is a balcony that goes around the entire length of the apartment so the views of the Saint Peter´s church where the famous painter Velazquez was baptized are amazing and most of my guests do spend time sitting out there while sipping a glass of Sevilla´s famous summer wine (don´t worry, I´ll have a bottle waiting for you).
I look very much forward to hosting my guests and making them feel right at home…so don´t worry, you will not need to prepare anything for your visit…leave that to me!
It´s all yours (ours ;-) ) so use it all! Living room, TV, stereo, balcony; make dinner and use the dining room table or kitchen table, the roof (ask me how to open it).
Interaction with Guests
I always let my guest decide. I´m not much of a home dweller so you´ll feel like you have the place yourselves. However, I love giving advice (only when asked to) about the best way to spend your time in Seville. I think you´ll see that from my reviews.
Right smack in the center of the center of Seville!
The now famous "mushrooms" are right next door!
You´ll never see a complaint about location in any of my reviews. Getting to the train and bus stations couldn´t be easier as they are just three stops away on a direct bus line.
Also, you simply can walk to everything that you will be seeing in Seville since it is all within minutes. I never use my car nor even public transportation as it is absolutely not necessary due to the apartment´s amazing location.
Other Things to Note
You will be going to the most amazing restaurants/tapas bars in Seville as this is my specialty! I give you an updated recommendation list upon arrival.
Ask me if you need anything...that´s what I´m here for. This really is the only rule.
USE OF THE HOUSE: It´s all yours (ours ;-) ) so use it all! Living room, TV, stereo, balcony; make dinner and use the dining room table or kitchen table, the roof (ask me how to open it).
REGARDING SMOKING: I allow smoking on the balcony and roof (very comfortable since they are big wide-open spaces) so non-smokers do not worry, there is no odor of smoke nor ashtrays in the apartment.
Brad is an extremely nice guy. Very responsive with our questions before we even landed in Spain. Great central location, his recommendations for food and breakfast were all spot on.
The room was a little noisy and partner had to use ear plugs. However, I had no problem at all with the noise. The room was also a little small, those with big luggage might find it difficult.
The bathroom was clean. The water pressure of the shower was a bit weak.
We found the Brad’s flat in Seville very charming, very well decorated and equipped with necessary amenities for daily use. Brad also gave us helpful advice on the locations of various sights, timing and tips for best enjoying them in Seville, as well as recommendations for several good eating places which proved delightful. Some of them were a bit crowded as they were favourites for others as well.
The flat was on the third floor of a conveniently located building, easy to find and easy to walk anywhere in Seville, if not for the heat that we encountered in Mid May. Afternoon was the hottest time of the day and Brad’s flat provided a helpful and convenient relief from the city heat with good air conditioning. The bedroom was compact, but it was compensated by ample space in the living room and a large kitchen and bathroom, all of which we can freely use. We had our own bathroom which was just opposite the bedroom, it was nicely decorated. There was a large patio which one can enjoy the views of the surrounding area by night.
The kitchen was very well equipped, though we did not make use of anything except the kettle for coffee and the refrigerator for cool drinks which Brad also kindly provided in numerous kinds.
All in all it was a great stay. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Seville.
This is my second stay at Brad's beautiful place and as before, everything was just wonderful (including a great new bed in bedroom). He is so kind and attentive and so easy to be around. Brad is really (email hidden)e best host ever! He takes care of every detail and is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
Brad's place is really awesome and he helped us make the most out of our short visit in Seville. Having your own local expert when you are in a new city is invaluable, and he is a super fun nice guy! Also, you can't beat the location, and the apartment is super comfortable and clean. Exactly what we were looking for. If you get a chance to stay here, do it! Can't recommend it more!
We werden warm welkom geheten door Brad. Hij is een outgoing person and very friendly.
Geweldig appartement met mooi balkon rondom. Privé badkamer en wat een mooie plek in Sevilla.
Wel veel lawaai van de straat, dat was echt een nadeel.
Brad was a wonderful host. From making sure he was available for check-in when we arrived, to welcoming us cheerfully upon our arrival to making sure we had everything necessary for a pleasant stay, he was the perfect host. He made us feel at home, saying that everything in the apartment was there for our use. The unit was just as described - beautiful, clean and in a great location, and had a wonderful wrap-around balcony
Our host met us when we arrived to the apartment. He really made us feel "at home", and he spent some time detailing all the good sites to visit, and in a recommended order so that we could make the most of the one day that we spent in Seville.
The listing was exactly as described, and the location of the apartment is in the center of town, which made it very convenient to access almost all the top tourist spots by foot.
Our room+bathroom were clean and comfortable.
Overall we had an excellent stay. Brad is a good host. I highly recommend this place. I would certainly stay here again.

About the Host, Brad
I moved here from New York 21 years ago and now all my Spanish friends say I am more "Sevillano" than they are. I feel I am outgoing and helpful. I get a real thrill out of showing people what a magical city Sevilla is.
The ice-cream place to the left…a local favorite.
GREAT FOR AN INEXPENSIVE BREAKFAST!!! In front of the church on the other side of the street. Order their famous “Catalana” which is toasted roll with Serrano ham, tomato and olive oil.
One of the most popular places in the city for it´s extremely large tapas. Eat a full meal for 5€…and you´ll love it! I recommend the “pollo con salsa de almedras” (chicken with almond sauce).
Great if want to sit down for dinner and very nearby. A mixture of vegetarian (not at all exclusively vegetarian), Mediterranean and Caribbean. Ask me to make the reservation for you.
A major local favorite!
A local favorite...may be just singing or just dancing or both…for a more formal show, read below to LA CASA DE LA MEMORÍA.
NEED A BREAK?: How about a few hours in a beautiful Arab bath house? AIRE DE SEVILLA is the place! Check out their website and make a reservation ahead of time.
Rapidly becoming one on of Seville´s favorites and one of the highest ranked (website hidden)com.
For an authentic non-tourist-trap show. Reserve tickets the day before. IMPORTANT: They have moved locations. It is now on Calle Cuna which is three minutes away.
The most amazing view of t(email hidden).make sure you go when the Cathedral is light up!
When you arrive, ask for a table and get a tapa and drink while you are waiting. Do not eat in their dining room next door, but rather at the tables at the rear of the restaurant.
