While its site, only 50 yards from the corner of the Cordoba mosque could not be more convenient for tourists like us, Los Omeyas has little else to recommend it. This is particularly true if you are driving and in need of the hotel parking: this is three long blocks away, in a dark cellar, down a precipitous and sharply-spiraling ramp--and not only that, there is so little room that wedging even our small Skoda in its space made exit from the car possible from only the driver's side. (The street, Encarnacion is so narrow that approaching the only entrance to the hotel, it is impossible to open the car doors for the encroaching walls on either side. Fine for foot traffic but for drivers, a nerve-wracking, tire-rubbing challenge.) Though clean, the rooms are very bare, bringing to mind budget motels on lonesome highways in the upper Midwest--albeit one with white marble floors. There was a recurrent smell of natural gas in the bathroom: after shrugs from the front desk clerk, we slept with the windows cracked widely. The breakfast (on a B&B policy) is meager at best and taken in a windowless, charmless room adjacent to the functional lobby. The staff was young and affected a clueless demeanor, discouraging even the simplest requests for advice, assistance etc. My wife and I--and the couple with us--would advise Cordoba visitors to investigate other places to stay.
