This is advertised as a 2* hotel and the pictures on the literature etc may mislead you. In reality this is a “bed and breakfast”establishment with rude, surly staff. The bedrooms are built around an atrium which can be opened (by owners) in warm weather. Even when closed the place is very noisy as voices echo around. Those rooms on 1st floor open onto the atrium so although there are windows if you open them the inside of the room is then rather public. Those on the 2nd floor (roof level) benefit from fresh air and can be quieter. Note that the windows open INTO the bedrooms and have very sharp edges and as the rooms are small it can be hazardous. Very limited storage space – a shelf only in a twin room and no luggage rack. Bed sheets were very thin – could see the mattress pattern through the bottom sheet and as the bedding is made up of rather itchy blankets it was not very comfy. Bathrooms needed updating, towels were grey and thin. No bath mat provided and several people in the Ramblers Worldwide Holiday group slipped on the tiled floor when stepping out of bath/shower. Breakfast consisted of a cup of coffee or tea, glass of sweet orange drink and a toasted bun – at a cost of EUR4.50. If you want a small bowl of cornflakes it is an additional EUR2.50! No public seating areas and no other catering at hotel. Other than on Christmas Eve when Cordoba effectively closes and there are no restaurants open for evening meals, this was not an issue as we did not want to spend any more time than necessary here anyway! The only thing going for it is that it is 2 minutes from the Mezquita de Cordoba but there are plenty of other good hotels nearby and Cordoba is sufficiently compact that you are never far away from the sights and sounds of this historical city! Most people arrive in Cordoba on foot as there is limited access to vehicles along the very narrow street so check if you hotel offers a pick up luggage service or you’ll be pulling your case over cobbles.
