Right on the boundary of the Barrio Santa Cruz and the Juderia, the Hotel Amadeus is located on a very quiet pedestrian street. La Musica next door is on the corner, with some rooms facing a busier street with traffic, but the windows are soundproofed. It's a short walk to just about anywhere, but difficult to get to by car.
The rooms (14 in Hotel Amadeus, 6 in La Musica) are small but inviting and all are individually decorated, again with musical themes – you may even end up with a piano in your room. You can choose from standard and superior doubles to the junior suite – the latter is my favourite with a curiously placed old-style bathtub at one end of the room. Be sure to specify if you have a preference between hotels.
Both hotels have typical Sevillano courtyards and there is free port always available in the lounge areas. There is a lovely rooftop terrace with fantastic views at the Amadeus and free WiFi throughout both hotels.
Eating and drinking
There isn't a bar or restaurant but it's okay for you to take your own drinks up to the roof in the evenings and enjoy the view.
Very helpful, very friendly, and usually available in several languages.
Who stays there
Musicians and artists.
You can have breakfast on the rooftop terrace but it costs 12 euros extra and has to be ordered the previous day.
