The location was stellar - maybe a 10-minute walk to Sevilla Cathedral. The hotel has a rooftop terrace from which one can see the Cathedral as well as most of the other elevated attractions in the city; sunrises from this vantage point were gorgeous. Rooms were rustic, but in a wonderfully Spanish style; doors were appointed with iron decorations, crossbars, and so forth. The staff was amazing, and one of the few oases of English-speakers in the city.

From what I understand, the hotel underwent extensive renovations in the recent past. Suffice it to say that the vast majority of these renovations are done, and while there was a handyman or two wandering the halls, this was not an inconvenience at all.

The Hotel Amadeus has my recommendation. It was affordable, convenient, and I really can't say enough about how helpful and outgoing the staff was.

Unique Quality: The rooftop terrace. Sooooo cool. To the Southwest, one can see the Cathedral, and there are cool views of "urban Sevillian living" wherever one turns. On one rooftop, for instance, we saw a boy practicing bullfighting techniques with his coach. Really neat attribute of the place. Also, there are netbooks throughout the hotel if one needs to access the internet.

Directions: Santa Cruz District

BEST HOTEL ON OUR EUROPE TRIP

The 3 of us stayed in the Attic room, dble bed with extra bed for my daughter, facing the street in La Musica. The room wasn't big at all, but it had a balcony to walk out onto so it didn't seem so small, this was directly under the roof deck where we had breakfast, wow, what view over Seville. The hotel is situated in the old part of the city.
The Hotel is music orientated, with CD player in our room playing one of their CD's when we arrived. This was my favourite hotel in our whole 2mth. trip.
we were there in end of June, next time we'll go in May- it was so HOT- 40c

Unique Quality: Located in the historical centre of Sevilla, streets are very narrow.
From the roof terrace you can see almost all of the oldest part of the city with the Gothic domes of the Cathedral of Seville and the Giralda. The hotel has a musical theme befitting its name (The house of music). There is a grand piano in the lobby where recitals are sometimes held (featuring established soloists, music teachers, young artists and members of the Seville Symphony orchestra).

Directions: Hotel Amadeus is located between the Barrio de Santa Cruz and the Juderia, very close to the Giralda. The old hotel is built around a typically Sevillian patio of the 18th century (1745)

The Hotel Amadeus is on a street that is too narrow for cars, like many in the Barrio. We rolled our bags the necessary 2 blocks & checked into RM 201 - the junior suite - the Mozart - 120 Euro. Strange long & large room with a bathroom - toilet, shower, bidet separated at one end. B. was not amused that the sink & Jacuzzi bathtub shared the main room. She likes her privacy at times. Antiques were everywhere in the lobby & the music theme was predominant. The owner & her daughters were great for suggestions, directions etc. Breakfast was 7 Euro each in your room, on the rooftop, wherever. Note that street breakfasts can be good too & are quite cheap.

We stayed a couple of nights in October of 2005, in two different rooms. The staff is very helpful and very friendly and, if you don't speak Spanish, most of the desk staff speak very good English. Value for money is very reasonable - it's in an excellent location (a short stroll to the cathedral and Alcazar, and you're pretty much tripping over restaurants everywhere), with lovely rooms, for 40 Euros less than the similarly located and similarly sized room we stayed at in Barcelona. And it's got waaaaay more character. The 7 Euro breakfast is a pretty typical European breakfast (better food than some: croissants, buns, oranges, cheese - but really awful coffee) which IMHO, is a thing best avoided (go down the street, find a bar, and grab a cafe con leche and some tostada with tomato and olive oil for 2 Euros).

It's an older building, and in some ways the rooms are well-worn (old floor tiles, the odd bit of broken trim, etc), but everything was clean and well-appointed.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel, and it would be my first choice should I stay in Sevilla again.

Unique Quality: Our first room was a Standard Double, and it came complete with a piano (room was soundproofed). Our second room was a Junior Suite, and it was big, beautifully furnished, and had three windows overlooking the street. The lobby has gorgeous tiling, a piano, a harp, books on music and art... There's a music library too. Breakfast, should you choose to risk it, is served in the pretty lobby or on the roof terrace which has great views.

Directions: Santa Cruz district
