Small, cosy hotel in the centre of Seville which was once home to a renowned flamenco guitarist
La Casa del Maestro was once the home of Niño Ricardo, one of Spain’s great flamenco guitar players. He lived here for nearly 60 years and pictures of him adorn the walls.
In the small sitting room at the front of the house you can pluck one of his records from the CD rack and listen to his sublime tunes.
The house is a real find, with great prices for the centre of town. The feel is warm, authentic and welcoming, with more than a little style.
Step in off a pedestrian street and you enter a small courtyard with a fountain; three floors up sun pours in through a glass dome. You find whitewashed walls, traditional tiled floors, a cast-iron door and elegant cane armchairs. The 11 rooms vary in size but not style.
You get plush fabrics, comfortable beds, smart furniture and gleaming bathrooms. Climb to the top of the house and you find a roof terrace, where you can breakfast with views over Seville’s rooftops to the Giralda and the cathedral – near which they have opened six self-catering suites.
La Casa del Maestro in Seville is a small hotel with 11 rooms, with doubles costing from €110 for bed and breakfast.
