We traveled with our grown children and had two rooms. The hotel is absolutely lovely in all respects, beautiful rooms, facilities and outstanding service. All of the people who worked here were very helpful. The hotel is located a bit away from the sites in Cordoba but within easy walking distance. This made it not only lovely but quiet. The staff made great recommendations for dinner at different restaurants in town.

The service is fantastic. Beautiful pool set in gardens with poolside bar service. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant in the courtyard with live classical music, the food was very good. Great location to reach the sights on foot.

The hotel was beautiful, a wonderful combination of antique charm and modern luxury. The staff were friendly and helpful and the courtyard garden with a small pool was a gem and was really the reason we chose the hotel - so that we had somewhere cool and beautiful to sit between sight seeing...

The hotel is located in a quiet part of town and the grounds are serene and beautiful. We had a nice room located downstairs off the courtyard Rm 15, which was wonderful. The breakfast was plentiful (churros and chocolate a must try!) and all the staff was very efficient and helpful. One morning we were without hot water, but they did their best to resolve as quickly as possible. Parking is also a major issue, so best just pay the fee and have them take care of it for you. Be sure to allow 20 or so mins to get your car when needed.

Gorgeous 5 stars hotel located within a few minutes walk from the shopping/downtown area. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, featuring a courtyard where meals can be taken, inside baths to relax after a long day walking, and an outside pool located in the garden. The rooms are spacious, modern, with excellent wifi. Everyday I received a treat (strawberries, cake) and a bottle of water. The staff will make you feel welcome, special note to Maria (from Guadalajara) who was super friendly and attentive to every details during my stay. Thank you! My only complain would be the excessively expensive parking (27 euros per night), which makes no sense. Otherwise, this is a no fault hotel, and would love to return!

This is an old palace that sits atop Roman ruins dating back to the 1st century BC. We are able to tour this site in the afternoon and it sits directly under the restaurant which has a glass floor so in the evening you are able to look down upon the ruins which are in extraordinarily good condition. The room was lovely, clean with great amenities. Although we usually venture out to find new places to eat, we make reservations at Arbequina in the hotel for two nights as the food and service is fabulous. Wonderful staff.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it. The location was perfect for us, we liked being a little bit further away from the tourist area and found some great places to eat and grab a drink minutes from the hotel. The hotel itself is incredibly beautiful with character and history everywhere you look. The patio garden was a delight to relax in after a day of sight seeing. Our room was efficient with a huge comfortable bed and was tended to daily, with a little sweet treat left for us. Little touches like this were appreciated. I had a massage on our last day and it was perfect. I am pregnant and they really took care to ensure I was comfortable throughout. The staff on the front desk were simply amazing! The level of service and attention to detail was great, thanks for looking after us. I have marked the hotel as 4 instead of 5 because of the food and drinks. There isn't really a bar (although there is a stunning terrace to enjoy a drink in) and when we ordered cocktails they were not made correctly. They have a negroni on the menu but it was a long, weak drink when it arrived. I think for the 5 star claim and prices, this should be better. The breakfast was good but each day the eggs were disappointing. When I had poached eggs, the chef had clearly not drained them so the toast was soaked in water. The scrambled eggs were undercooked even though we asked for them to be well cooked. The coffee at breakfast was also poor. Little details like this can really make or break. Finally, we had dinner at the hotel on our final night. The food was very expensive for what it was. The dishes didn't hit the mark e.g. oxtail gyoza with strawberry kimchi and pak choi sounded really interesting. In reality it was oxtail in an overcooked dumpling case with strawberry sauce and raw pak choi. I had suckling pig for the main and it was about 6 mouthfulls for 30 euros with an unpleasant tapenade. Although the food could have been better, this doesn't take away from this wonderful hotel.

Great location 10-15 minute walk away from tourist center. That's a good thing - center is VERY touristy. Hotel is a respite. Beautiful old palace transformed into contemporary boutique hotel. Gorgeous garden and pool are provide a welcome relief after a long day touring La Mezquita or old back streets of the center. Staff is very accommodating. They called us the day before to confirm our arrival time - a nice touch, and then they had our room ready early.

An oasis of tranquility on a little street in Cordoba. It's out side the main touristy area but easily walkable to the Mezquita and other points of interest. We had a rental car and never used for the 3 days we were there. Friendly staff and beautifully maintained property with a rich history make it really special. It's very relaxed and most everyone walks to pool, spa or casual lunch at an outdoor garden table, in their robes. Would highly recommend when you are looking to be a little spoiled. Make sure you don't miss the old ruins under the dining room or a dip in the hot/cold spa baths.

We had a slightly odd start, with inefficient checkin, but this hotel soon proved to be a delight. The rooms are very well fitted with most comfortable beds. The style of the hotel is calming with beautiful art and lighting. The outdoor areas are lovely and the large courtyard with outdoor pool a very pleasant place to also have a drink or a meal. Most of the staff were excellent and we enjoyed our stay.
