Tucked away in a narrow street in Cordoba's delightful old town, even if the spacious, modern interior of Hotel Macia Alfaros doesn't fully reflect the charm of its quaint surroundings, it's nonetheless a great base for tourists with all sights easily walkable and the main rail station a comfortable stroll away. Better still, it's in easy reach of numerous great places to eat and drink which surely contributed to our overall perception of Cordoba as a relaxing, laid back place to be.
Our tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable room was generously sized with an attractive and sizeable bathroom, plus well-stocked and reasonably priced mini-bar. An apparently unique feature of this room was its own little terrace in the centre of the hotel - something of a sun trap where one can sit out with drinks after a hard day's sightseeing. Well away from the street, the only noise came from the swifts circling overhead.
Facilities are good: there's free wi-fi, on-site private parking is available and there's a small but pleasant outdoor pool with sun terrace. Dining options both formal and informal at moderate cost are available along with a bar - I must confess we didn't partake (in the hotel at least!). Staff were all extremely helpful and easy to deal with and treated any problems with a reassuring mix of good nature and efficiency.
The hotel appears to be reasonably equipped to cater for disabled visitors though I would recommend confirming room access prior to arrival. The only thing I'd explicitly criticise is that the in-room safe is charged at 2.50 Euro a day - this should be free in my opinion.
