Hotels--Amadeus or Alma Sevilla

I realize that these two hotels are very different in price. Is the Alma Sevilla worth the difference? I was set on the Amadeus, but then I read some reviews complaining about the effectiveness of the air conditioning. Since we will be there in July, a.c. is a very important consideration. I also don't know if it will be too hot to take advantage of the terrace at the Amadeus, which people seem to rave about.

Open air terraces are super after 10pm when it cools down. I was sampling the terrace at the Alfonso XIII hotel recently which is on the lower level and found it ideal for a late evening drink in the open air. There are plenty of hotels to choose but if you go by the reviews and ratings then you should not go far wrong. Many , if not all, of these hotel terraces are open to the public.

We just got back from the Amadeus. It was a gem and I would go back there in a heartbeat. The A/C in our room worked very well. Our room (no. 110) was also very quiet. It had no view, but all we need during a citytrip is a clean room with a comfortable bed and a decent bathroom. The Amadeus perfectly fitted the bill.

Depends on your travel style. The Alma is a proper 5 star hotel, the Amadeus is a mid-range bed and breakfast. Stayed in both, both are great as long as you are honest about your expectations. They're like chalk and cheese.
