My favourite hotel in Spain. What a delight to arrive with my family including 2 teenage boys to be upgraded to 2 separate stunning suites complete with our own private Andalusian courtyard replete with orange trees. Lovely staff, beautiful massive rooms and authentic I Roman Frescoes on the walls of our room. wow. Great location, just a very short atmospheric walk to the old town. Córdoba is beautiful. Lovely bodegas and restaurants and easy to walk around in a day or 2. Highly recommend

Highly recommmend this hotel. The staff is charming and attentive. The room was lovely. Breakfast and dinner were both superb. And the location is ideal. A bit Ricky to drive to, but once you are ther you’ll be very happy.

We chose this hotel for our stay as we had stayed at the Hospes in Palma and Alicante and had good experiences, and we wanted to be in a location close to the main sights and restaurants. The building, courtyard and patios are beautiful, Using the outdoor pool in the summer would be wonderful. Our room 120 overlooked the front street and was a spacious and elegant room and bathroom. Street noise was not a problem at night as the double glazing is very good; if it was warmer we would have needed some help as to how to get the AC working. There was evidence of the usual hotel over-designing ( e.g.2 wash basins but very little space for personal wash bag etc )and silly mistakes ( e.g.the ceiling lighting is poorly positioned) but this seem to happen everywhere. Do hotel interior designers ever stay at hotels? We had a kind tour of the Roman villa in the hotel lower levels. Reception staff and room staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. We used the complimentary hour in the Spa's thermal baths and experienced a worrying accident. Due to the lighting being a very subdued one - as I was later told for for an appropriate spa ambience- there are serious health and safety issues. A shelf/step around the bath edges had to be constructed with a short fall/early finish so as to accommodate the spiral staircase steps and bannister newel. In the darkness of the very low lighting I could not see this unexpected aspect and fell, injuring my arm and badly bruising my hip. The spa staff came down immediately to help me and used their first aid box to treat me and suggested calling a doctor if I needed one, which I didn't. I appreciated their professional response and help. When I raised this with the Manager Alberto the next day ( and my husband raised his tripping in the pool) I was surprised to find there were no systems to officially record this accident. While I appreciated his apologies & offers of complimentary services, which we felt unable to accept, I would have liked a more definate future course of action to ensure this does not happen again. But perhaps as it is only 4 days since we left he has not yet been able to get back to me with the way forward response.

Great Hotel for our two night stay in Cordoba. Spacious, historic building with ultra modern facilities. Valet parking takes the stress out of driving in the narrow streets of the old city centre. Good attention to detail making your stay in the Hotel a pleasurable personal experience. The Hotel's greatest asset by far is the hotel manager Mr Perez and how he inspires his staff to care for their guests on an individual basis.

We found this hotel via Secret Escapes. The staff was nice. The hotel is located in a historical old mansion. They have their own Roman ruins downstairs. Ask for the short tour to see them. With about 50 rooms, the hotel is small. We stayed on room 117, which had a small window to the beautiful patio. That was nice and way less claustrophobic than other rooms that had a view to the wall across the street. The room was very, very small, but it had a fantastic large bathroom. Toiletries standard of Hospes. Breakfast buffet was good quality. You can also order hot dishes from the menu and I liked that very much. They provide also a free filtered water in the room. Kind of unnecessary given that water is good from the tap, but i like the comfort of having the water next to me. Kettle with hot drinks options are also provided. When we got the car, we got a bottle of water for the trip. Thoughtful detail! The hotel sends you an email I'm advance letting you know of access routes or asking if you need reservations in advance. The map and information they provide are also very good. Location of the hotel is OK but not great. Once you are in Cordoba, you realize main sites are from main plaza and towards Mezquita. So even though its not too much of a walk (in less than 10minutes you are already at the main plaza), you start soon considering why you stayed on the other side of the old city when you keep on coming back to the other side. They have valet parking on site for 27 Euros. Not cheap but very convenient and on par with any other European capital or bigger metropolis. We had one hour free access to the Roman pools downstairs and we enjoyed it. Overall, it is a good hotel. But the small size of the main room (not the bathroom) and the distance to main sites would make me look first for different options next time. As indicated in a different Hospes review, please consider your instant coffee policy. It doesnt go well with the quality of the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel just last week for a couple of nights. We can't say enough great things about it. The hotel itself. The setting. The history. The rooms.....are amazing. But just as, if not more, amazing, is the staff. Attentive. Pleasant. Smiles. Service above and beyond. They make it seems effortless and they add so much to the overall great experience that awaits you at Palacio del Bailio. I need to give a special shout out to Jessica, Maria, Laura, and Rafael. Rafael and Jessica helped me with an Avis car rental situation that I if I had to do it alone, in Spanish....let's just say I'd still be there trying to figure it out. Rafael also gave us a tour of the Roman ruins under the hotel. So amazing. Cordoba is such a fantastic city. It deserves at least a couple of days. And those days will be made even better if you stay at Hospes Palacio del Bailio.

Avery attractive hotel. The design team have done an excellent job in combining an old palace with up to the minute interiors and quality furnishings. Very good breakfast. Definitely worth visiting the Roman ruins underneath the dining room. What really stood out was the exceptional level of service from the front of house team and Rafael in particular who went out of his way to help us with our car rental problems.

We stayed at the Palacio for one night while we stop by Cordoba on our way to Sevilla. My wife and I loved the hotel. It is a fifteen hundred palace fully rehabilitated with all the convenience and luxuries of a 5 star hotel. It was a little cold and we could not enjoy the numerous patios nor the pool area with the wonderful garden around it but I suspect these are great attractions during the warmer months. My wife contacted the hotel beforehand and they very efficiently organized a private tour of the city and dinner reservations in a local restaurant. The checkin process was excellent and we got an upgrade to a junior suite which included a huge bathtub and shower area. The day we arrived we had a quick snack at the Arbequina restaurant including serrano ham and local cheese; the staff was super attentive. We also had breakfast in the main courtyard (which is covered) and it is a magnificent and elegant area. The breakfast buffet had a great selection of almost everything we would want; they also offered us to make us eggs any style and bring them to our table, all at no charge. Important tip. Don't leave the hotel without visiting the Roman ruins under the main courtyard which can be visited and the hotel manager was very kind to accompany us throughout

I thought we were being a little spoiled on our trip through Andalusia by staying here but we ended up being totally spoiled! The hotel is beautiful—there is a spectacular inner courtyard with lovely gardens, Roman ruins under the dinning room floor, and Roman baths that they do a nice job regulating so they aren’t full of people when you go down. Our room was maybe a little on the smaller side but very nice. The hotel is a nice walking distant to the main sights which makes you feel like a local after a few trips. Definitely check out this hotel!

This hotel has been converted from a private palace - and it has been done very well. One of the most fascinating parts is the dining room which has a glass floor - under which are the excavated remains of the Roman villa that preceded it. The service of all staff is polite and instantaneous. Car parking is expensive at 27euros a day but they take all the hassle of it. Expensive - but if you want a bit of luxury it's worth it.
