If you’re reading I Know a Little Place in Seville from afar because you’re planning on coming to the city to live or study in the near future, finding somewhere to live can be a daunting task. Do you pitch up, wander the streets before booking into the nearest hostel? Or maybe you could randomly contact landlords advertising rooms on the Internet, without knowing who or what you’re dealing with?
I must admit neither sound particularly enticing, thank heavens for the recent launch of SPOTAHOME, a multi-media
platform designed to smooth the process of finding accommodation in the
city. Perfect if you want to sort out somewhere to live before you
arrive, it’s aimed at foreign students or people working away from home
personally vet rooms outlining in fine detail
the pros and cons of each apartment or house. You even get to see a
rough and ready video of each apartment, however you don’t get to check
out the property yourself in person before you book it (which of course doesn’t matter if you’re making the reservation from the other side of the globe). Prices look
pretty reasonable, and seem to be somewhere between 200 – 350 Euros per
room, depending on location and whether a single or double. On arrival you get to inspect the property and only then if you are happy do you sign a contract which authorises the first month’s payment to go through.
The site also offers a short video on each area of town to help you choose what part of the city you want to call home.
