It is very easy to transform it by means of hinges and wheels effortlessly.The room has got too a wardrobe,a heater, internet wifi and air conditioning for the heat days in summer in Seville.The house has no living room, but the kitchen being connected to the terrace by large windows, you have great feeling of space.
The flat is located in the area of Alameda de Hercules wich is full of life (my favorite area in Seville) and you can find a market (to buy fresh fruits and vegetables , fish and meat), Chinese shops (open from 9 am to 23 pm), cafes, bar (where you can eat "tapas"), banks, etc.
It is about 10 minutes walking to the main monuments (Cathedral, Torre del Oro). The river is about 5 minutes walking too.
This neighborhood is called the Alameda for being around the Alameda de Hercules, square which is full of life with its bars, tapas, coffee shops, concerts. In the 90's the neighborhood had a change at all levels and were rehabilited all old house and began to be occupied by artists and bohemians of Seville, from being a slum to be a neighborhood where live many social classes and where everybody knows everybody.Proximity to old town makes this neighborhood one of the most attractive for those who want to explore the city and know the essence and the manners people Sevilla. In this neighborhood will find many bars where people gather to have a beer and socialize
Areas to emphasize in the neighborhood
-Feria Street : is the main street of this area, because is full of people, many shops, bars, Chinese shops, fast food, there's a food market where you can buy fruits, meats and fish of the (website hidden) the back part there is a bar where you can have breakfast or have a beer with fried fish .You have to ask for the "bar of the market"
-Antiquies market( only On Thursday) is a market that places on the Feria street where selling antiques, books and many curious objects
Restaurants and tapas bars:
-La Madraza (Peris Mencheta street): Mediterranean food restaurant where you can also eat tapas and wine at a good price. There is an air conditioning and it is lighty and cool local
-Calatrava Street: This street has many bars from the beginning (starting at Barqueta Bridge) to the end (Alameda de Hercules) Many bars have free seating in the open air .I recommend you always choose the bars where there are more people
-Casa Paco (Alameda de Hercules) many "tapas" nice price and outdoor seating in the middle of Alameda de Hercules
-Contenedor (SanLuis street): very cool restaurant with artistic decoration and good food and good wine. The price is a bit higher than another
-La azotea ( Jesus del Gran Poder street): excellent restaurant with a very good kitchen and wine.The only thing is that the place is very difficult to find a free table because its small
-La cacharreria (Regina street): bar very small but very nice with a special breakfast with toast, juices and fruit and located on Calle Regina, attractive pedestrian shopping street
-Cafe Hercules (Peris Mencheta street)
-Café Piola (Alameda de Hércules)
-Alameda de Hercules :many bars to have a breakfast in the open air
I always recommend that you buy the Giraldillo wich sell in any newstand.Its a monthly magazine where you can know the most important events of the month (concerts, flamenco, exhibitions,museums etc.)
Too is highly recommend the free magazine "Yuzin"
Flamenco La carboneria (Calle Levies, 18) Flamenco free daily

Oscar was the most helpful and gracious host. We were lost and he went out of his way to pick us up after which he gave us a most detailed account of the city. On our way out he even called a taxi for us. I would def recommend Oscar as a host, you will not be disappointed
L'appartement d'oscar est très bien, plutôt bien situé et bien entretenue.
Quand à Oscar c'est un hôte génial. Il prend le temps de bien expliquer les lieux d’intérêts, les ballades ainsi que les quartiers à voir, mais aussi les bar restaurants et café qui vaut le détour. Nous avons passer un très bon moment à Séville, et Oscar nous as bien aidé pour cela.
L'accueil de oscar a été très chaleureux et ses conseils bien pratiques. La chambre est idéalement située, à deux pas d'un charmant marché couvert. Le quartier de la Macarena et de l'alameda de hercules est l'un des plus agréables du secteur, petits bars sympas et tapas délicieux, à 20 mn à pieds du centre historique.
La recepción fue excelente! Oscar pudo acomodar mi atolondrada llegada y tras recibirme, me dio una clase magistral con mapa incluido sobre que hacer y donde ir.
Con respecto a la habitación, una de las paredes es de vidrio y da a la terraza, que es un espacio común. Aunque hay cortinas, no son completamente opacas. En mi estadía, no me percaté de que alguien haya usado ese espacio común pero fue medio incómodo.
Oscar was really welcoming and helpful. He told us everything we needed to know about Seville. As for the house, it is very clean very well located and has all the amenities. I strongly recommend it
Our time in Seville was wonderful. Oscar was an excellent host and he gave us lots of good advice. I highly recommend staying here.
Todo genial. Oscar nos acogió estupendamente y nos explicó con detalle todos los lugares de interés.
