Seville Hotels - September 2016

My husband and I are planning to be in Seville for 3 nights in mid-September. We are looking to keep our hotel costs under $150/night which I know can be challenging but since we tend to be out in the city for most of the day we are not that picky when it comes to hotel amenities and do not need breakfast included. From my review of the board I have narrowed it down to three options, can anyone offer any comments on these hotels or a different recommendation?

Alminar Hotel
Hostal Callejon del Agua
Hotel Murillo

that shouldn't be challenging in Seville in September, many hotels are in that price range or cheaper.

Those all look like good locations and choices. My only comment is the cheapest one obviously (hostal) has rooms that are barely larger than the bed, you can tell by the photos. The first one gives you room size, which is nice, and those are good sizes.

Last time I was there I stayed in the Rey Alfonso X which has superior doubles in SEpt for only about 120 euro, I really liked it, the location was excellent. I don't know that it's better than any you chose, though. http://www.hotelreyalfonsox.es/

Of your three choices, the Hotel Murillo would be my first choice. Both it and the Hotel Alminar are on pedestrian streets, so will have to walk from the nearest taxi drop off point. The Murillo is also a little less expensive in mid-September then the Alminar.

The Hostal Callejon del Agua is the least expensive of the three in mid-September. It's more basic, but with A/C, which you will need in September.

Make sure you have a good map to get back to any of them once you're out and about and what to head back to rest.

If you want something a bit more comfortable, and are a member of Marriott, then the Fontecruz Sevilla should do. The Double Standard Room is a little more in mid-September, but worth it, and a taxi can get you to the front door in a rather interesting ride.

I would have chosen the cheapest, and Hostal Callejon de Agua also gets great reviews:

And here is the programme for the Bienal de Flamenco, 70 performances in theaters all around town in 25 days. Tickets start selling in two days, February 15th. http://www.labienal.com/programa/

I could have gone to Sevilla for the only purpose of seeing

Thank You for the tips.

@Robert2533 Unfortunately Fontecruz Sevilla is not available on our dates, booking directly with Marriott otherwise this would be the perfect option.

I was thinking that pedestrian only streets might be a little quieter, is this not the case? In Rome & Florence the scooters were incredibly loud outside of our hotels.

You can try Hotel Inglaterra. Location is central. Hotel Inglaterra is just 250 metres from Seville Cathedral. Fine prices, good breakfast and welcoming staff.
