recommendation for accommodations in Seville

Hi - Looking for either a B&B or hotel that has a good location, availability of two beds in the room and somewhat quiet at night. Would like to keep it under $130 per night . This is for next Spring 2020 - I start looking early!!
Many thanks!

You said next spring, you will probably want to avoid booking in Sevilla during the 2 massive festivals they have in late April and early May: one the week before and leading up to Easter, and then another one in the first or 2nd week of May. Rick has more detail on why to avoid these times, in his guidebook.

Unless the prices change, I don't think Hotel Becquer is in our budget, but I'll look again.
And yes - I will look when Easter occurs in 2020 and avoid that week!

Mary: Actually, the 2 massive festival are 2 weeks, and those are not consecutive weeks: this year the 1st festival is the week preceding Easter, then a week off, then another huge festival in the first full week of May. Difficult to book hotels during these 2 festivals and the hotel prices apparently skyrocket.

We stayed at Hotel Amadeus back in 2011, but have no idea if it’s in your range.

Seville hotel rates are really high if you hit dates around Easter, so timing matters a lot.

For stays during Holy Week in Cadiz and with 2 of 6 nights falling during Holy Week in Seville, I am paying 80 euros per night for a single room. I chose about the least expensive place I could find in a convenient location that had a vacancy as of early January. By comparison, I am paying nightly rates of 41 euros in Ubeda, 45 euros in Cordoba, 29 euros in Ronda, 56 euros in Malaga and 39 euros in Granada. Those are for stays in April or early May that do not touch Holy Week.

You're smart to be working on this early; I think it will give you a better chance of getting a good-value deal during Holy Week. Now, the bit about quiet--well, that can be tricky. I'd read a bunch of reviews on booking.com if the property is listed there. (You don't have to make the reservation through booking.com.) Remember that Spaniards eat dinner extremely late. It is common for diners to return home or to their lodgings between midnight and 1 AM. Not only will there be people on the street, they may be heading for the room next to yours in the hotel. Take earplugs. It never hurts to request a quiet room, but be aware that quiet often means no view, unless you count an airshaft. [Edited to add] Remember, I was in single rooms; they tend to be in odd corners. Maybe all the airshaft views are in the single rooms!

Thanks for all the suggestions - I should have added that we will be visiting in March, so no worries about Holy Week.

We have just returned from Sevilla and stayed at the Hotel Amadeus Musica and paid $231.00 for 2 nights. It is in a great location and about 2 blocks from the Cathedral. Clean and has a great roof top patio.

We are going to Seville in just a week and a half. We rented a duplex with HomeAway for three nights. For all three nights, it is @ $350 total. It is in the Santa Cruz district and has one bedroom, two bathrooms and a rooftop deck. We've used HomeAway now for nine years both in the US and all over Europe. The one bedrooms usually have a sleeper sofa in the living room, also. I like having the roominess because my husband, a night owl, can watch tv in another room without disturbing me while I sleep.

We stayed at the Inglaterra by Plaza Nueva which is the end of the tram line. Super convenient to everything either by walking or by taking the tram. We paid around 100 euros per night for February/March, beautiful room and rooftop terrace. It wasn't super quiet because of some road construction but that's hard to predict.

I also stayed at the Hotel Amadeus and can recommend both the hotel and location.

We LOVED El Rey Moro, and the price was very reasonable when we were there. It is bursting with Spanish charm, the breakfasts were quite wonderful and it is well located in the old Jewish quarter within minutes of the alcazar and cathedral.

Hi Mary,
My mom and I spent 5 amazing nights in Sevilla and we enjoyed our stay at Hotel Amadeus for the first 4 nights and one night at Hotel Fernando III .
These two hotels are in Barrio Santa Cruz near the cathedral and I’d stay there again. Hotel Amadeus is small but comfortable. Hotel Fernando III is much larger and our room was also very comfortable.

We didn't eat breakfast at either of the hotels. We found a small cafè nearby that offered delicious breakfasts at a great price.

Enjoy your trip!

Another vote for Hotel Amadeus, we were there over New Years a couple of years ago. The roof top garden or patio on the annex was nice touch.
