“A family-run, musically-themed hotel set within an 18th-century manor house in Barrio Santa Cruz”
Named after famous composers, the 30 rooms are thematically styled and vary in size, but all have an abundance of natural light. They’re spread across 2 buildings: the original Hotel Amadeus Sevilla (overlooking the quiet Calle Farnesio) and the more recently built annex, La Música de Sevilla (on Calle San José).
In Superior Room Verdi you can play a beautiful black upright piano - though you probably shouldn't, for the neighbours' sake. Standard Room Brahms has large windows overlooking the interior courtyard, making it one of the quietest rooms. For street views and a little outside space, it’s worth plumping for a Penthouse (with Juliet balcony) or one of the Double Room on Street, in the La Música de Sevilla building.
Junior Suite Mozart is a pure gem with a large double bed, a whirlpool spa bath and a separate shower room; it's very spacious, with shuttered windows overlooking the internal courtyard. Similar but even larger in size, with a separate living room and a Jacuzzi tub, is the hotel’s only Suite, Rossini.
The best thing about breakfast is that it's taken on the charming roof terraces. Lined with potted plants, they provide a wonderful bird's eye sanctuary, with wrought-iron tables and superb views. In winter, you can have breakfast in your room or in any of the common sitting rooms.
Don’t expect a full cooked breakfast, though. The standard continental applies: fruit, bread, jams, honey, cheese, Seville marmalade and coffee or tea.
The hotel has a small terrace café serving drinks, snacks, salads and sandwiches, but for full meals you'll need to head out. Luckily, the area is teeming with restaurants and tapas bars, as well as some excellent breakfast cafés.
For tapas, we recommend the attractively chaotic Las Columnas; fast-paced and the ensaladilla (potato salad with tuna, crab, peas and carrots) is not to be missed. Or, if you’re after something more leisurely, El Modesto has plenty of outdoor seating and great seafood - try the coquinas (baby clams) or gambas al ajillo (shrimps cooked with olive oil, garlic and hot peppers).
Children of all ages are welcome, although the overall atmosphere isn't for kids. There are no garden/play areas and very young children wouldn't be particularly welcome at the classical music concerts.
