“Good rooms, problematic parking”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

I thought the hotel was pretty good.
Good things: new and beautiful room, huge and shiny shower, good air-condition, very quiet, 10-15 minutes to the interesting things. All around great rooms.
Bad things: the room has no window, there is no breakfast available, and the worst:
Cordova is incredibly hard to drive in and find your way. The instructions from the guy at reception were not accurate (was it his first time? why can't they draw a map?) and we spend over two hours looking for the parking through the narrowest streets.
I do recommend it, but do yourself a favor, walk from the hotel to the parking, make sure you know where it is and only then take your car.

Room Tip: 1. Park your car and walk to the hotel. 2. Ask for directions to the parking, walk to it, make sur...

The hotel must have changed name recently because it is marked as the "Asolter" both at the Tripadvisor and on the signs in town. we came by car and had quite some problems finding it although we closely followed the signs (there seem to be signs for all hotels). In order to reach the car park you need to go into an elevator that fits nothing more than a fiat Punto or so but at least the parking itself was fine.
The hotel itself did not look to pleasant in the beginning although a second look made it clear that these were the pictures we had seen on the site. The room itself was a bit strange although there is really nothing bad to say about it: the bed was large and comfortable and the bathroom seems newly renovated. However as already noted there are some strange things indeed: the window opens towards the courtyard of the hotel and of course you cannot open it unless you want the other guests to peek in. The walls have no isolation at all. The television is hung too high so that the picture is dark but the they only have spanish stations. We had room no 6 and spent some 10 minutes every time we wanted to open the door because of the card (once it did not open at all). It is true that the hotel is situated close to the Plaza de las Tendillas but it did not seem very central. I think we would have been better of in a hotel within the Juderia where all the action is or a nicer hotel outside of the old town (if you have to walk at least you walk away from a nice hotel). The basic breakfast in the Cafe Gloria was OK. Price was 70 Euro including the breakfast. Although there was nothing really bad about the hotel, there was nothing really nice either.
Finally, the card lock in our door hardly worked, requiring sometimes>2 min to open the door. Overall, I the hotel isn't bad at all, but for the price it struggles to shine amongst the competition.

It is a very nicely looking hotel: quick glance reveals a comfortable large bed, AC, a modernly furnished bathroom, hotel is quite central, with a reasonably pleasant staff and a very basic breakfast in a cafe nearby – all this should justify 70 euros per night we paid for a double room.

However, after a careful examination a few small things spoil the positive first impression. And while no elevator, no hairdryer, or the staff's poor English could be forgiven, poorly isolated rooms are a bit more of a problem (any door slam in the middle of the night or a loud group coming back from a flamenco concert will make you stand up in matters of milliseconds). Furthermore, tiny windows (and only with the courtyard view) are not a great news for those staying longer than one night. Finally, the card lock in our door hardly worked, requiring sometimes >2 min to open the door.

Overall, I the hotel isn't bad at all, but for the price it struggles to shine amongst the competition.

This is a small, clean and nicely decorated hotel near Plaza de las Tendillas, Plaza de la Corredera and the Roman columns. The room we got is small but it was expected. The room rate included a frugal breakfast in a close by bar which was nice. At 102 euro, approx CAD$150 a nigh (maybe because included a weekend) I though it was too much.

The Asolter provided us with a large room on the second floor overlooking a wide, quiet pedestrian street. As a new hotel, there were a few things that were not quite finished. All the rooms we saw (the proprietor showed us several rooms) were awaiting some sort of artwork or headboard, as the mounting bolts were there, but all had bare walls. The room was otherwise nicely furnished with a very, very comfortable bed, a nice armoire, modern touches with the night stands. The bathroom was a very nice dark green marble with modern fixtures and thick towels. There was a very nice roof deck, with an outdoor shower and comfortable seating, but a larger, more private roof deck one level up that did not face onto other rooms still awaited its furniture. The front desk staff was very helpful, and very friendly. Not everyone spoke English, but all were very tolerant of our sketchy Spanish. The room rate included breakfast at a cafe around the corner, which worked out well. The location was perfect, as it was near the sites but not in the thick of the tourist zone, so you could easily walk to find shopping and other activities. All in all, our 3 nights there were enjoyable, and we really enjoyed our stay.
