The Hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in..beautiful gardens, wonderful welcome and service throughout and set in a wonderful location in Cordoba. We could not have wished for more from the hotel during our stay.

I didnt like : Hard to get there by car (although the hotel sent me an email with a map, it is still hard until you get used to it) thanks to the management A bit expensive Car park is available at another site and costs additional 27 Euros ! I liked : Location close to old town Friendly staff, they are welcoming, ready to help and suggest Very clean and modern interior Very Helpful Manager They put Bottles of water in our car on the day that we left

We came over to stay in Cordoba for a few days and this hotel was definitely one of the key highlights during our time here. Built on Roman ruins, the hotel manages to incorporate what is left of the previous civilizations into their design ranging from Roman designs in the bed rooms to Arabic style reading rooms and the Cordoban patio. Remember to bring bathing suits as there are Roman baths available which needs to be booked in advance. The biggest shoutout is to the front desk which have been extremely accommodating when one of our members became sick so I had to move to sleep with other members of my family. We were given a larger room and extra bed with no additional charge. I really appreciated that! The only drawback is the rooms in the first floor are extremely close to the roads which can be noisy at certain times, but this is not the building's fault in anyway as it is the layout of Cordoba. Overall an amazing hotel, great staff, really enjoyed my two nights here.

The hotel is in a historical house from the 18th century with some roman ruins as well. So it certainly has a good personality which sets it apart from the "regular" big 5* hotels. The place looks very well but under-delivers a bit with the the rooms (not talking about the suites but about the deluxe or standard/"dreamers" ones) which look more to a 4* class, with rather dull design. The amenities are good but I think the personnel needs to pay a bit more attention to details - our room was lacking some basics like the hairdryer, dry cleaning bag, vanity set, slippers which should be a default. When we asked for those of course we got them, sometimes a second follow up was needed. Ordering room service in English was a bit funny as I think they did not understand what we were ordering - i was asking for tortellini with ricotta and spinach and the lady was just saying - you want pasta with funghi?!? After repeating 4 times that yes they have it but spinach is a plant!?!?!? The breakfast is very good quality, everything! Far better than most 5* hotels. There's a restaurant that serves dinner which we tried, a fusion of traditional cuisine and Japanese. I was not very impressed with the food, but will review it separately. The spa was good, got several massages, visited the roman baths, which are small but quite beautiful. You need to make a reservation for accessing the roman baths and that's a good thing as it's a good way to avoid being overcrowded. The hotel personnel was very attentive everywhere and tried to be helpful. I think if the hotel will improve its execution excellence with providing what's needed in the rooms with the use of a basic checklist the stay would have been perfect and I would have rated it 5*

Wonderfully magical space. There is 16th century architecture on display that add so much character, story and life to this quaint hotel. The kids had lots of stories to make up! Our room (room 16) was comfortable and very neat with its own private outdoor space for dining- perfect for Muslim families or those who need extra privacy. The pool is also private and can be reserved in advance. We had spinach ricotta tortellini from their in-room dining regularly because it was so yummy! There is just one slight problem, if one is trying to take an afternoon nap, it gets quite noisy with all the buzz around. All in all, we enjoyed our stay here and the area was quite close to notable gardens and a 16 minute walk from the main Cordoba Mezquita.

What a story book setting and gracious hospitality! From the moment of booking and assistance by the amazing Alberto to the warm arrival and greeting by the hotel manager, Marta, we could not have asked for a more perfect stay. Hospes Palacio went out of their way to make our honeymoon very special, including a bottle of champagne upon check in and the beautiful oval suite with historic al fresco paintings on the walls. Thank you for a memorable time in a truly enchanting city!

The hotel is a former palace and is built around two lovely courtyards. The guest rooms and public rooms are quite beautiful. Service is of an exceptionally high standard. The dining room actually has a glass floor and sits above an archaeological excavation of a Roman house that guests can visit. The hotel also boasts Roman baths. The hotel is located in a quiet area of the historic part of Cordoba but within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions. It is a short taxi ride from the train and bus stations. It is certainly one of the finest hotels I have stayed in and is reasonably priced. The breakfasts are very good. Definitely a "must" if you are visiting Cordoba.

We are very glad that we chose to stay in this lovely hotel within walking distance of the main attractions of Cordoba. The staff were very friendly throughout our time here. We were fortunate enough to come in a low season period so not only were the prices reasonable but we were all upgraded to two beautiful junior suites. These were stunning rooms with one of them being set off a pretty outdoor courtyard and the other being a beautiful oval shape with lovely paintings and a historic feel. The building was very nicely decorated for Christmas and had a very lovely atmosphere. We enjoyed using the small ancient spa area with hot and cold plunge pools. The breakfast buffet was excellent with lots to choose from and very nicely set out. We walked from the hotel to the Cathedral and it was a pleasant walk through an attractive area. We arrived by car and it is a little difficult to find - some roads look like "no entry" but they say that you can go along the road if you are going to specific hotels. When you arrive by car there is just a small entry arch and you leave the car there to unpack. Overall we really enjoyed our short stay and highly recommend this lovely hotel - especially during the low season period of early December when the town is quieter and the temperature is mild.

Warm friendly welcome. Gorgeous room overlooking courtyard. Comfy bed. Fabulous bathroom. Plenty of storage. Amazing, helpful staff. Great spa and range of treatments Can’t recommend it highly enough. Just like a home from home.

The hotel is a little tricky to find via car, with all the one way streets but it is certainly worth the effort. The decor is gorgeous - a combination of fashionable boutique style with old fashioned palatial. Our suite was spectacular - it was oval with a museum like feel to it but very comfortable and the updated bathroom was through a separate door. We had a memorable gourmet dinner in the hotel restaurant served by the charming and personable waiter Javier, who gave us first-rate service. We walked through the streets oozing with historic character to meet our guide for a city tour with highlight being the unforgettable and amazing mesquita. Our stay in Cordoba was a highlight of our trip to Andalucia thanks in part to a wonderful stay at this hotel and the excellent service provided by staff.
