“for something different, the Amadeus works...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

Whether you are in Puerto Plata in the Caribbean or in downtown Prague, there is very little difference between the standard chain hotels. I guess this is part of their charm - knowing what to expect and having a sense of familiarity no matter where you are.

Indeed, the age of the boutique hotel seems to have truly gone. Yet, once in a while one finds a beautiful little gem. Such a gem is the Hotel Amadeus in Seville.

Nestled within the old city quarter, a stone's throw from the Cathedral and just a two minute walk to a quaint square (where this particular traveller enjoyed his Martini whilst having a shoe shine!) this hotel has no car access. Seville's famous 'narrow streets' house this hotel. Your taxi will drop you off about 20 metres away on a car-able road (still itself frighteningly narrow - particular when travelling at the speed of a Spaniard), and you walk up a lane that is so narrow you could touch both walls either side by merely outstretching your arms. This hotel IS Seville.

The foyer/lobby is an eclectic environment with musical instruments throughout, and a self-serve decanter (some lovely port and sherry during my stay) next to the plush easy chairs. Each room (I am led to believe) has distinct character. Our room (I think it may have been Mozart, though I am not sure) was interesting to say the least. A large bathroom at the end, but with a separate bathtub in the middle of the room! Homey or sexy - it can be what you like. Late at night you could hear the church bells peeling through the window with a beautiful Andalusian breeze blowing in.

With the all-year warmth of this setting, the hotel itself sets you up for a city that is quintessentially Spanish, with distinctive Moorish influences.

The aged gentleman who works at the desk is friendly enough (if one can speak Castilian) though one often has to cough loudly to rouse him - or my preferred method of giving him a quick prod in the ribs!

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. The location is perfect, the surrounds inspiring, and the difference of it is its selling feature.

Do not expect the standard Novotel furnishings and extras - but as far as I am concerned, that is the very reason you would choose it!

Ole!

Location was really nice. 10 minute walk to "the best" tapas bars. Just around the corner is a great coffee and brakfast place. AC works great but the breakfast was really expensive. Go get your own for half the price. The rooms are old style spain which is great but all the tile makes the place a little noisy at all times of the day. Price was high for what you get and the floors were filthy. Our soles of our socks were black in 15 minutes from the dirty floors. We wore slippers the reat of our time in the room. Do the arsenale flamingo show with dinner for sure. Get there 30 minutes early at least to get a good view. Awesome experience.

Room Tip: Upper floors are best off alleyway because of noise.

This hotel is very romantic. The rooms are lovely and common areas are very pretty. Unfortunately my husband came down with the worst stomach bug I have ever seen while we were in town. The staff was very helpful getting him medication and went above and beyond trying to make him comfortable. Considering he didn't leave the room for 3 days it was very helpful.

Based on the posted reviews we decided to book this hotel and we were very much disappointed. I had read bad reviews about their standard rooms being very small so we booked the superior room.
There was little superior about it. Our room was at the top of the first flight of stairs facing the alley and had an antique ceramic floor. The hotel is extremely noisy within. Anyone coming up the stairs at night will wake you up unless you are a deep sleeper, especially if they wear flip-flops.
The bathroom is really small and the floor was not clean. We could not figure out how to set the dial on the shower which also has forward spraying heads, so of course it sprayed into the rest of the bathroom. When we used the floor towel to wipe the water up it became black with dirt.
Compared to other hotels we have stayed in during our trip, even the "Superior" room we had for 115 euro is way overpriced. It should not have cost more than 65 euros at most. In addition, there is no parking at the hotel (not unusual in Spain) but it is a stiff walk to get from the nearest parking garage to the hotel especially when you have to lug your suitcases.
Breakfast is served inside or on the roof and, if the weather is nice, we recommend you take it on the roof which has a nice view of the city and the nearby cathedral. Most attractions are within easy walking distance but I am sure there are better hotels to be had in the area for the price we paid. The 4 star Hotel Fernando III, which is just around the corner, apparently has parking and was only 100 euros.

We were traveling with our two young kids and this was a perfect hotel for our whole family. Except for the lobby which is a toddler's heaven, but a parent's nightmare because it's filled with tons of decoratives that a child can break, the room was large, simply and beautifully decorated and very calm and peaceful for our kids to sleep in after big days around the city. Breakfast was served up on the rooftop patio nice and early so we wouldn't wake the rest of the guests and we couldn't beat the price. If we're lucky enough to get back to Sevilla, we'll definitely stay at the Hotel Amadeus!

Room Tip: reserve early- they book up fast!

We traveled from Madrid to Nerja, staying in Seville on the way toward the coast. Now we wish we had stayed longer simply because this hotel, Hotel Amadeus, was such a great place. Our GPS did have us driving in circles in our rental car as we tried to locate it - not knowing you could not drive to the front door of the hotel. However, once we asked and received directions we parked our car in a nearby underground parking garage, which was very close by and a very short walk to the hotel. We made sure to reduce the volume of our luggage so that we left the huge bag in the trunk and moved enough clothes for our stay into two smaller bags. It made the walk to the hotel even easier. The young man behind the desk was extremely helpful, intelligent and friendly. They printed out a map for us that showed us exactly where we wanted to go. The staff we came in contact with at the hotel was very professional and helpful. The room we stayed in was quite fine. It was on the first floor with a window that opened onto a small courtyard. The window in the room had a latticework grille that allowed for privacy though no one actually sat in the courtyard. Not that it would have mattered. The bed - extremely comfortable! The bathroom - great. There was a small CD player on the nightstand that was just OK. Kind of a surprise considering the hotel's theme is music. There are all sorts of instruments located throughout the ground floor that guests can use. A harp, piano, cello, etc. We didn't noodle away on any simply because we don't plan an instrument. They also have loaner laptops, which is a really nice touch. Yes. They have WiFi that you can access throughout the hotel including the awesome rooftop patio where you are served your large, delicious continental breakfast in the morning. It's really a great place to stay.
