Hotel Amadeus


Seville

We have tracked down an original and fun family hotel in Seville, where you will not take long to feel at home, especially if you are into classical music, the Hotel Amadeus. The name of the hotel says it all, this place is all about music. People come here to listen to music, and even to make music. There are musical instruments available for guests to play, including a large piano in the hotel’s magnificent patio. The hotel also has a sound-proof practice room, and a number of the 40 rooms have also been soundproofed. The hotel also boasts a library with wide ranging information on music and an extensive collection of CDs, mainly in the classical music genre.

The music aspect aside, we were very much enchanted by the layout and quality of this hotel. Everything is well taken care of here, and it has a team of staff members that feel great commitment to making your stay as pleasant as possible. All rooms have a fresh and original design with a great number of details that reflect the musical character of this hotel. Apart from that, we also consider this hotel very suitable for non music buffs.

The hotel's roof terrace does not only offer great views of the city, but is also where you can have breakfast, if you wish. Recently the roof terrace has been extended, also a jacuzzi has been installed.

Another thing we have to mention is that the Hotel Amadeus is located conveniently close to the centre of the city, and forms a great base from which to “do” Seville. It does not have its own restaurant, but there are plenty of different restaurants close by.

The Hotel Amadeus is an absolute must, in our view, precisely because it dares to offer something that is most definitely out of the ordinary, it is not a ten-a-penny hotel.

Cons:
• None

Pros:
• Very well-maintained hotel
• Extremely original format, also if you life does not revolve around music
• Very motivated and friendly staff
• Good parking facilities, despite the location in the city centre
• Sound-proof rooms ensure that other guests are not disturbed by the music

surrounding area

Seville
The capital of Andalucía is a compact city with a rich past. Most of its major sights are in or near the city centre on the Guadalquivir river’s left bank. And they also know how to party and have a good time in this city of flamenco and tapas.
As you wander through the old Jewish quarter, the Barrio Santa Cruz, through a maze of white streets and patios, you should not forget to take in the imposing cathedral, the Moorish bell tower, La Giralda, and the Real Alcázar royal palace.
Great places to unwind are the various parks, palace gardens and the boulevard on the river bank, where you can stretch your legs under orange trees.
Charming and beautiful squares include the Plaza de Doña Elvira, Plaza de España, Plaza Virgen de los Reyes (from which you can go on a city tour in a horse-drawn carriage), Plaza Santa Cruz and the Plaza del Alfalfa.
The museum Museo de Bellas Artes, one of Spain’s best museums of art, is a real must. And then there are its magnificent palaces and other sights, such as the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza (bull ring); Casa de Pilatos and the Torre del Oro.

Culinary
Enjoying a few tasty tapas on one of Seville's lovely squares is another essential part of a visit to Seville.

Family
You can see the best of Seville from the top of an open-top double-decker bus. And you can even go on a river cruise on the Guadalquivir.
In the centre of Seville, the Parque María Luisa makes for a fun place to feed pigeons, rent a bike or go for a ride in a horse-drawn carriage.
Where museums are concerned, the coach museum is a particularly fun place to visit with the kids.
There are also a few amusement parks in the area, including Andalucía’s largest and most popular park, Isla Mágica, on the EXPO site in Seville. Roller coasters, rapids, and many more attractions.
The Guadalpark water park is also a great place to find some refreshment during the hot summer months. Spectacular slides, a black hole and different pools make up this park.
And then there is the safari park, Reserva Natural Sevilla, in the village of El Castillo de las Guardas, about 60 km north of the city. You can get close to lions, elephants, giraffes and rhinos in your own car or a train. Part of the park can be explored on foot, such as the kangaroo garden.
To the north of the city, on the N630, you will find the Mundo Park. This park has a zoo, botanical gardens and a fun fair.

Golf
There are some excellent golf courses in the Seville area, with the Real Club de Golf de Sevilla being the one that is closest to the city. A few kilometres west of Seville there is also the Club Zaudin golf course.

The following villages/towns in the area are definitely worth a visit:
Carmona (40km; 35min):
A pleasant provincial town with a rich past that has given it a beautiful townscape and interesting monuments. Carmona is about 30 km to the east of Seville, and sits on top of a hill. The old centre is small, with a few stately townhouses, churches and convents. Try to avoid driving into the centre. You will be much better off parking your car near the Puerta de Sevilla and exploring the town’s winding brick-paved streets and attractive squares on foot. Sights include the town hall (Ayuntamiento), the 15th-century Iglesia de Santa María la Mayor church and the impressive ruins of the Alcazar del Rey Pedro that rise above the town. Just outside Carmona is the Necrópolis Romana, the remnants of a Roman burial site.

Arcos de la Frontera (85km; 1h15min):
Arcos is one of Andalucía’s finest little towns; it often serves as a base from which to explore the pueblos blancos (white villages); its entire medieval centre has been declared a Historic Monument. In Arcos you should just stroll around its cobblestone streets, past small whitewashed houses, its many squares and its patios. Arcos’ oldest building is the Castillo, a dilapidated castle that is strategically situated on top of the hill. From the town walls you have a great view of the Guadalete valley.

Jerez de la Frontera (91km; 1h5min):
Jerez is the sherry capital of the world. A tour of one of its bodegas (Sandeman, Pedro Domecq, Gonzalez Byass) is not only good fun, but you will also learn something. How to distinguish fino from amontillado or oloroso sherry, for example.
Jerez is also famous for its horse riding school, the Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Escuestre. Apart from visiting a show here, visitors can also attend lessons and tour the stables.
Other sights include the inviting cafes on the Plaza Asunción and the old town hall from 1575, Casa de Cabildo Viejo. The San Mateo quarter is famous for its flamenco bars, and is also where you will find the official flamenco centre: Centro Andaluz de Flamenco.

A 25 km drive takes you from Jerez to Sanlucar de Barrameda to visit the Parque Nacional de Coto Doñana. The Parque Nacional de Coto Doñana on the other side of the water can be reached by boat from Sanlúcar.
This park is one of Europe’s largest swamp lands. The best time of year to visit this park is winter or spring. In the summer and autumn the swamps are dry, although that is when visitors get excited about spotting deer, boar, buffalos and otters. With a good guide and some luck, you might even spot a lynx.

And you can, of course, head for one of the other 2 world famous cities for a day trip:
Córdoba (145km; 1h50min):
Visit the Mezquita, Córdoba's huge mosque, which has seen various different developments throughout the years to become a fascinating blend of styles and religions. And you can also go for a stroll through the districts of San Lorenzo, Judería and San Basilio, where you will encounter the most beautiful Moorish patios. Other sights include the palace/fortress Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos with magnificent gardens and fountains; various museums, such as the Museo Arqueológico, Museo Taurino, Museo de Bellas Artes; a string of great squares, such as the Plaza de la Corredera, Plaza del Potro.

Granada (265km; 3h):
The Alhambra was the part of town where princes, nobility and court staff dwelled, on the hill right in the middle of Granada. The Alhambra is a huge complex, 720m in length and 220m wide. Clever use of space, light, water and decorative features are the Alhambra’s defining features.
On the hill opposite the Alhambra, the Albayzín quarter, is where Granada’s Moorish past is still most tangible. Stroll through its narrow streets, past villas with Moorish decoration and gardens, up to the Mirador de San Nicolás. This is where you will have the best views, of the roofs of Granada, with the Alhambra behind them, which makes for a stunning view, especially at sunset!
