Convenient Car drop off in Seville?
I understand we should not keep our car upon arrival in Seville, as we are flying out to Barcelona at the end of the visit. I noticed that there are three drop off sites and I'm wondering which would be the most convenient and then cab to our hotel-Hotel Amadeus.
1. the airport
2. the train station
3. The downtown office Estacion de Santa Justa
I appreciate your input. Thank you.

I also need an answer to this question Harborgirl. However, I might be wrong but I think the "train station" is actually Estacion de Santa Justa.

Yes, I also believe the train station is Santa Justa. Its just that one of the car rental sites gave a choice of the train station or their downtown office location to drop the car. I've heard its awful to drive in Seville, so was wondering if train or airport would be better to drop off.

Santa Justa is the railroad station and is closer in than the airport.

I'd drop it off at the train station. It's very near the highways so it's easy to get to, and it's closer to town, so the cab ride into town will be less.

I faced the same issue a couple of years ago and posted a similar question. The answer is the train station. Although you do not want to drive in the old part of Seville the train station is very easy to get to and much closer to your destination. You approach the station on Av. de Kansas City, a straight, wide street. The station is huge and obvious on the right. The car rentals are on one side or the other of the station building so if you don't see yours as you go by then turn right in front of the station and check the other side.
