The most positive point: the location, in front of the Mezquita, in the middle of old town. Because of this, it is a little bit tough to reach it by car. Following the GPS, we got lost in some very narrow streets, and time to time I needed some help to pass in some critical points. In any case, parking included. Service is very good. Breakfast is ok. The rooms are a little bit old, but clean and wide. Only problem, all the hydraulic pipes (hot and cold water, heating, etc) were accessible from the wardrobe, not so safe, considering we were with a little son
I booked for a mosque view room at this hotel only to be given a room on the ground floor which was just outside the outdoor patio which unfortunately led to me having a cockroach in my room at one point which for this styled hotel is pretty unacceptable. The older gentleman at reception was quite uninterested and didn't make me feel welcome at all. I booked this hotel last minute and I thought I had grabbed myself a bargain with the quite low price and the pictures looked amazing but the pictures online did not match the rooms at all and I left feeling the hotel was overpriced. The only good thing I can say is the location is fantastic, as you leave the front doors you are at the Mosque and a five minute walk to the Roman bridge.
Room was ready even when we arrived early. The receptionist was incredibly nice and efficient. The lobby was unique (though it did get loud when groups were gathered in the lobby). Sound carries in the hallways easily. The beds were a bit stiff, but after a day of sightseeing, they were a welcome sight. Breakfast was good. ALL ABOUT THE LOCATION! Parking was available. Also, there was an old fashioned soda fountain in the restaurant attached to the lobby
Overall a very good option for exploring Cordoba for the first time. Hotel has seen better days and the rooms have some shortcomings. Very soft (old?) mattresses & pillows. Combined bath / shower that is difficult to get in an out of - and would be very unsafe for elderly or infirm people. Faulty air conditioner. Staff generally helpful & friendly although unable to help us with an early check-in (had to wait until 2 pm for the room). Good lunch & dinner service at the restaurant. Average buffet breakfast with poor attention to food quality (e.g. old fruit juice that had begun to ferment, stale-tasting bread and scrambled eggs that were allowed to go dry and crusty). Large car park in the basement - although driving in this part of town is not easy. Saving grace is the five-star location, right next to the Mezquita and within easy walking distance of many other attractions, shops, restaurants & interesting old laneways. This area is very noisy and bustling with activity from about 10am - 6pm, but outside those hours it's very quiet. We had a room on the 1st floor overlooking the main street & Mezquita but were never disturbed by noise at night. Overall a good deal for the moderate tarriff.
This is a first-class hotel, located right in the historical old city. You have to drive through limited access streets to get there, but once you're safely parked in their lot they will send your car plate number to the police so you won't get a ticket. They are right next to the Mezquita, the tourist information center and the place where the free walking tours and the bus tours star, and a short walk across the bridge from where the walking tour for the bus company starts. Breakfast was ample and it is possible to order eggs any way you like them, although the scrambled eggs at the buffet were delicious. The staff was very friendly, and it was clear that they enjoyed working there. Unusually for a hotel, there was no kettle in the room. The desk clerk told me that because it's only a three-star hotel, they don't offer guests kettles with coffee and tea in the rooms, but I expect a lot more from a chain as upscale as Eurostars. This would definitely be my hotel of choice if I visit Cordoba again.
What a location - my bedroom opens out onto the stunning mosque-cathedral. Parking underground absolutely next door was such a win win (€13 p/d👍). The lovely Andalusian style of this hotel fitted perfectly in this most attractive city; full of charm! The front desk staff were very professional, helpful and a big plus for not only spoke English but more important understood English. The room was cosy but had everything I needed in it. Beds comfy; nest & clean! Breakfast buffet at €8 extra was air. Vicki Sydney Australia
We did not stay in the hotel but we ate at the Cafeteria which is located directly beside the world famous mosquete. The menu looks alright and the prices are also ok on th first look. Unfortunately that are the only positive aspects of the Cafeteria. We ordered two pizzas and both were not selfmade. The pizza is the same u can get from the supermarket, right the frozen one! For 8,80€ a frozen pizza? A very bad rip off. I can only recommend to stay away from the Cafeteria.
The hotel is next to the Mezquita which is the main reason we visited Cordoba. The convenience of walking to it and to the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos is a definite advantage, as is the underground garage, if arriving by car. The breakfast buffet was excellent, with abundant choice. The room and bath were very clean. We were on the second floor and had a lovely view of the inner courtyard. However, if you want to sleep at any time other than midnight to 9 am, you will be interrupted every 15 minutes by the clock marking the quarter hours, and every hour from 9 am through midnight you will hear the bell LOUDLY gong. Since we didn't need to sleep before midnight or get up after 9 am we didn't ask for a quieter room. If you plan to rest during the afternoon you should ask if they have soundproofing. The other negative was the unpredictable nature of the reception staff. They ranged from friendly to detached (but still helpful) to nearly dismissive over our stay of 2 nights. If they had a more even-tempered staff, it would have been a better experience.
I did not stay in this hotel but came especially for the 3 course Sephardic dinner. Even at E13.50 plus 10% it is not worth while. The hummus was excellent but not served with pita bread but boring mini rolls. The lamb stew (with frozen chips) was tasty with 3 pine nuts (!!) and honey but the lamb was a cheap cut of bones and fat. I was still starving after the meal! CruzCampo beer included and a delicious pear in red wine with fattening nata on the side which I left. Waiter spoke French. English spoken. For a 4 star hotel, I was disappointed. No wifi for non guests. Beautiful wall hanging in the restaurant and in the hall. Unfortunately the weather was rainy so I could not eat in the Patio. Rather depressing atmosphere in the restaurant. Better to eat elsewhere close by. However location, right opposite the Mesquita is hard to best. Nice bust of the revered Maimonides in the lobby.
We spent one night in Córdoba and enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect for touring the historic section, although there was quite a bit of street noise through the night. Our room was small and simply furnished. A varied and generous breakfast buffet was included. Gluten-free pastries were provided on request.
