“Affordable, Clean, and Centrally Located Hotel in Cordoba”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2010

I traveled with 2 other friends and we stayed in a very decent triple room for about 80 Euros a night. We found the staff to be very accomodating and helpful. The staff spoke excellent English and made very good suggestions on places to eat and visit. The room was cozy yet always super clean. The bathroom was very spacious. The hotel is centrally located in the Juderia (the Jewish Historical Quarter). The Juderia contains many fabulous restuarants and wonderful shopping for gifts. The Mezquita is very nearby as well. All of the historical sites can be reached on foot from this hotel.

This small hotel in the old city is in a great location and staff are helpful and friendly. If you are driving a car to the hotel beware! quite difficult to navigate the narrow, oneway streets! We hired a taxi and followed it in!

Albucasis is probably the best hotel we used during our fortnight in Andalusia. The entrance through a tunnel, into a charming courtyard and on to the lobby is striking. Quiet, on a narrow side street, I sat in their courtyard to write letters. The best part is the room decor...very spartan, no TV, just two beds with a window (with blinds) looking to the courtyard.

Tried the breakfast once but preferred other options during the rest of our stay. Lots of good eating and drinking places nearby.

This is a no-frills very basic hotel. If you are looking for an excellent location in Cordoba very competitively priced then you have a great option here. No luxury, just the bare necessities, clean and well kept in general. The staff is helpful and are doing a good job. It is perfect if you want to maximize your time exploring the city and only plan to sleep in the hotel room.

If you are looking for a very basic, clean hotel with little or no ambiance, this is the hotel for you. Nice courtyard, but our room did not have any character. Service was neither rude nor pleasant.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2007

A nice small hotel in the heart of the old Jewish quarter of Cordabe - just a few steps from everything.
The room is of reasonable size with very basic amenities. If you are looking for luxury or fancy decoration - this is not the place for you. Our room had a nice view of the hotel's lovely patio. Didn't try their breakfast.
We chose this hotel for three reasons:
1. The location - as mentioned above
2. The price - they don't raise their price during the weekend (while other hotels do), which makes it a good value for money for weekend stays. (I'm not sure about weekdays)
3. They have their own parking. (very hard to get in and out...)

Getting there was a little adventure. As it is tucked among one way streets and allies, we came equipped with dirving direction obtained from Via Micheiln. Well, that led us into the wrong direction of a one way alley. A nice gentlman walked my husband to the hotel, while I watched the car. The hotel gave him a map with direction (nothing similar to Viamichelin's) - and this time it worked. The lesson to be learned - when making a reservation in such places - ask the hotel for detailed instructions.

And finally - do I have to add that Cordoba is beautiful?

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2007

Our room was clean and comfortable, with a nice bathroom. There's a very good continental breakfast for €6 - you could probably get better value elsewhere, for example at the tetería just round the corner. The location in the Judería is excellent, which probably justifies the room rate of €80 per night, and generally quiet (although there are some church bells, as other reviewers have mentioned). Sound insulation within the hotel is not very good. The shaded patio at the front of the hotel is a definite plus point.

Driving there is OK if you follow the yellow tourist signs, which are accurate although rather few and far between. You have to go past a 'no entry except for authorised vehicles' sign and through some very narrow streets - we were just beginning to think we were lost, when we found it right in front of us. There's a secure car park right under the hotel for €12 per night. Fortunately Córdoba can easily be explored on foot.
