Home away from home: Hotel La Motilla, Sevilla, May 24 and May 25

The UGA Chamber Choir's first home in Spain is just outside of the town of Sevilla. Hotel La Motilla is located in the 'La Motilla' area, about 15 minutes drive from downtown. With a coffee shop, bar, pizzeria and a swimming pool  the hotel  also offers 24/7 front desk staff. The hotel has 101 large rooms, all decorated in different colour schemes and comfortably furnished with large beds, tables, air conditioning, cable TV, telephone, private bathroom with hairdryer, minibar and a safe deposit box.
Here is a little info on the town of Sevilla (known as Seville in English) from the website of the Spanish tourism officeSituated on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville has a rich Moorish heritage, and used to be a prosperous port that carried out trade with the Americas.  The streets and squares in the historic quarter of the capital of Andalusia are lively and busy. They treasure many constructions that have the World Heritage designation, and many districts are full of traditional culture, like Triana and La Macarena. Seville is a prominent business and service centre in the south of Spain and has many hotels distributed all over the city which enable visitors to discover endless attractions. Museums and art centres, theme parks, cinemas, theatres and clubs are some of the many leisure options that a great city like Seville holds. Without forgetting, of course, the numerous terraces, inns and bars where visitors can practise one of the most deeply-rooted and tasty traditions in the city: "Going out for tapas"
