A challenge to you all....any hidden gem about inexpensive accommodation in Seville?

Have been searching the net for quite a while for a room in Seville during Easter but the price is really scorching high! I believe there should be some hidden gems in or around the Santa Cruz area. Can anyone give me a helping hand?

There are a few places, but generally, it's far too popular on a mere mortal's budget. Have you taken a look at Maribel's Guide to Sevilla? Other than that I'd try something outside of Sevilla during holy week.

During Easter it is very difficult if not impossible to find something. Don't know how long you plan to stay but you might check Apartmentos Santa Cruz if you are there for a week. It's on Plaza Invalidades and has some studios. One other thought are is the hotel coupon approach. I can't remember the name but there is a system available where you by a book of "vouchers" that are good at selected hotels and are reasonabley priced. Popular wth business people, the hfotels are generally not locatedin tourist areas such as Santa Cruz but are good hotels. I used it a few years ago and stayed at the Melia Libreria [?] out near Santa Justa station. 15 min walk to Santa Cruz. Good luck but I think you are in for a struggle.

I stayed at Hotel Amadeus in the Santa Cruz area last Easter and the room prices were maybe 50 pct higher than usual, as I recall. That is a very wellknown period in Seville and a lot of travelers.

YOu should forget about finding some gem of a hotel in that area that doesn't know about the going price for hotel rooms at that time period, it's not going to happen, nor is their going to be a wonderful hotel in that popular area that no one knows about or that has really cheap rates at Easter.

We liked the Hostal Roma. Small, clean rooms and air conditioning. The web site with prices is here:

Hi YeungRita.

Did you look at Hosteria del Laurel? It's a good price and good service. I included a detailed write-up on it in my trip report, so I won't include it here.

Hosteria del Laurel, Plaza de los Venerables, 5 - You'll need to click on this first, "entrance" web page to enter the rest of their website. Then, you can send in a request to see if there are any rooms available. The hotel will e-mail you back.

Maribel's guides are at:

The coupon books are bancotel.

Good luck. Semana Santa (Holy Week) is one of the busiest tourist times in Sevilla. And, what a special time to plan a trip to Sevilla. It's one of the trips I'd love to do. Then, I'd like to compare it with a trip in back-to-back years with a trip to Antigua, Guatemala for their Semana Santa.
