  • Great location, quaint ambience, fantastic staff!


    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



    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)

  • A Small Gem


    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.

  • Amadeus - The Music Hotel


    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

Fantastic Hotel and location

by TripAdvisor Member Cristobal G

A very comfortable clean hotel only a stones throw from the cathedral. Great value for money at 80 Euros per room per night. Hotel is small, friendly staff and with a clasical music theme.
Hotel is a bit hard to find especially if coming by car. The hotel has no car park but has spaces in an underground car park near by.
Probably essential that you book early.
There is a great tapas bar between the hotel and the cathedral called Los Columnos, great atmosphere, good food where 4 of us ate and had drinks for 35 Euros total. You may have to stand but the staff are great.
Only food in the hotel is breakfast which is more than adequate and served on the roof terrace by a woman who carries it up a very steap flight of stairs.

The perfect hotel in beautiful Sevilla.....

by TripAdvisor Member martyap

Our stay in beautiful Sevilla could not have been better. The Hotel Amadeus was in a perfect location only a 5 minute walk to the Cathedral and the Giralda. It was right around the corner from calle Mateos Gago with its wide variety of tapas bars. I would stay here again without a single hesitation. Although the rooms were lovely the best part of this hotel is the management. The owner and her three daughters are there with smiles, tips and sound advice to make your stay in Sevilla a memorable one. You will not be disapponted if you stay at the Hotel Amadeus.......five stars in my book!!!!

Wonderful hotel, fantastic staff

by TripAdvisor Member melodyMD

We stayed at this lovely hotel for four nights in May. When you walk into the door, you are amazed by the beautiful touches in every corner of this lovely place. Its such a peaceful hotel, and most importantly, a super-helpful and friendly staff who go out of their way for you. The beds are good quality, and the rooms are very charming and clean. Its a lovely hotel, and the location is simply fantastic too, a block or two away from a few of the four star hotels and close to the cathedral and many restaurants.

You really can't go wrong staying at the Amadeus!

Two issues
I'm not sure I'd opt for the attic room again, despite its spaciousness, because everyone who plans a trip to the terrace (and this is most of the hotel guests) walks right by your two windows - so either you keep them closed all the time, or you have little privacy. However, my companion preferred it to the lower level rooms, as it is more spacious.

Make sure your taxi knows where this hotel is and INSIST on being taken to one of the two ends of Farnesio, the street it is on, instead of being dropped off elsewhere in the area, which they sometimes do.

Charming little hotel with a great location

by TripAdvisor Member CDCHICAGO

I stayed there for two nights and it is a great hotel. Beautiful and charming with a great location in the old quarter. Classical music theme to the entire place. The room was bit small, but great nonetheless. Would recommend to those looking for a mature place to stay.


by TripAdvisor Member BrennaBee

I stayed in #3 R.Strauss room it has nice shower-not a box, small re-frig, tv, a/c, cd/radio, it's very comfortable! I would stay again in a heartbeat........

Best place to stay at Seville

by A TripAdvisor Member

Amadeus Hotel the BEST place to stay while at Seville.
We just came from a family trip from Spain and staying at Amadeus while in Seville was a very important step toward making our stay unforgetable.
All the staff from owner,daughters to service personnel were ALWAYS ready and so helpfull.
Don't forget to add the breakfast on the room it comes with freshly squeeze orange juice,fruits,freshly bake bread and excellent coffee.
From giving address as to were to buy the best clothing as to how to get to see The World Famous Rocio Feasts everything was perfect.
Each room is different and FULL of details;were do you go and find books to read next to your bed and clasic music being played on the radio.Linens impecable. I mean this is the place to stay without a doubt.
But remember to book EARLY the hotel is very popular.
As I told the ownwer one day,your hard work on details shows on EVERY corner of the hotel.
The problem is once you check in you don't want to leave.

OK, But...

by TripAdvisor Member Drewswlon

I picked this hotel because it was the top-rated hotel in Seville on the Tripadvisor site. The reviews are pretty accurate, and the rates are pretty good for Seville. But....

This is a 2-star hotel. There is no bar or restaurant. The location is difficult to find, and not that convenient. It is remote from public transport, and on a street no taxi can enter.

My room was on the ground floor, and very poorly sound-proofed - both from the street outside and the lobby inside. I expect the other rooms are much less problematic, but without carpets or rugs every surface in the building reflected and amplified any sound.

The breakfast roof terrace is quite an experience, great rooftop views to the Giralda. But breakfast only starts at 0830h, and is served quite slowly (all those stairs), so my day trip to Cordoba on the 0930h fast train was a bit of a scramble.

The ambience is very pleasant, although the musical theme seems a bit forced, and the mainly elderly Americans seemed to be lapping it up.

I'm glad I stayed there, but I don't think I'll be back.
