“Might find better deals in the area...”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

We´ve stayed for 1 night only in Parador de Cordoba.
Its located near the city, by car its less than 10 minutes, by taxi, expect to pay around 8-10€.
The city its tricky to park your car, so consider getting around by taxi, and then by walk.
The hotel itself its not such a great deal as it might seems. The building its not that beautiful, but the rooms are large and confortable. Anyway, a refresh on the furniture would be a good idea.
Beware if you´re counting on a dive in the pool, as its closed by now, and that was a bit of a dissapointment for us, even knowing that the weather was not that great.
The staff was polite and professional, and gave us a map with the locations we needed to know, and also a few good restaurants in the area.
Now, just a little math... I believe that the prices are a bit hard for what the hotel has to offer... 165€/night its just a little too much for what you get... Its not exactly a bad deal, but you might find better options in the area...

Our final hotel on the Parador Andalucia Legacy ll route. Parador is on a hillside in a smart area of Cordoba and the views over the city are beautiful.
Room large with twin double beds a sofa and chairs, balcony with table and chairs and an awesome view of Cordoba although only a standard booked.
Rooms both private and public spotlessly clean.
Dinner and breakfast very very good.
I would stay here again, and again.
The Mezquita in the city is a must to visit but don't bother driving down as there is little public parking, very narrow streets and the taxi ordered by the hotel was only 8 euro each way.

Room Tip: Ask for a front room with a balcony. Floor 3 is good.

We stayed for two nights during Easter week. Like the other reviewer, I had expected an old building and was disappointed to find it was modern and not particularly attractive from the outside. Our rooms were really spacious and of a high standard. The staff were pleasant and spoke very good English.
The hotel is quite a way out of the town centre. It takes about 3/4 hour to walk to the Mezquita and the rest of the old quarter. Fortunately there is a regular bus service that stops right out side the hotel (every half hour) - otherwise it would be uphill all the way back.
We didn't eat here - breakfast would have been very expensive for 4 of us, and it was too cold and wet to sit outside. However the terrace looked very pleasant with a great view.

We booked for three nights and had intended to explore Cordoba more thoroughly but the unfriendly service and the awful food made us decide not to spend any more time in the hotel than necessary. The restaurant food was so poor I refused to pay for my main course and as this trip was to celebrate my birthday I didn't want to have my birthday dinner in such a place so we checked out and went back to the coast.
The temperature was in the high 20s but the pool was closed - although the pool is advertised on the website as seasonal, there is no mention that the season is only June to September, very disappointing to find we couldn't take a dip on such a warm day.
The room was good (superior room) but the air conditioning didn't cool the room and Internet access was so hit and miss it wasn't worth using.
We have stayed Paradores all over Spain and this was not what we have come to expect. I wouldn't recommend the Parador but I would recommend Cordoba, the Mesquita was breathtaking and much more impressive than I had expected.

My husband and I stayed here for one night. We had read about Paradors in a guide book and really wanted to stay in one during our trip. Unfortunately, we either got caught up in the excitement of staying in a castle or didn't pay much attention to the website (probably a mixture of both), but we were a bit disappointed to find out it was not a castle and in fact an old monastery. The building from the outside looks like an apartment complex. However, once you get past the exterior, the hotel is quite nice. The rooms are large and the lobby is very classy. The breakfast in the morning was the largest I have seen at any hotel and very delicious. I would not recommend this as the once in a lifetime Parador visit. As a hotel it is very nice, even if it is farther from the highlights of Cordoba.

We stayed here because we were on a tour of the Paradors and taking advantage of their five night deal for 108E per night. In fact we upgraded at modest expense when we arrived here (not too easy to find but isn't satnav wonderful?) and had a superior room with a balcony at the front looking towards the city. The room was huge and the bed was comfortable. The room also had a comfortable settee and armchair and was a nice place to just spend time relaxing and enjoying the view after a hard day doing the sights . The reception staff were pleasant and helpful. The hotel is a fair way out of the city and it costs about 7E for a taxi to the historic centre. Parking in the city centre is tricky. We found the public areas of the hotel somewhat stark and uninviting. The gardens and swimming pool area were in the process of being refurbished. We didn't eat in the hotel at all so cannot vouch for the restaurant or the bar.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room facing the valley and the city.

The outside is somewhat off putting , this pinkish monolith on a hillside, but the nights were quiet and the rooms were fine. Unfortunately we weren't able to use our large terrace because of the awful weather we're experiencing this week. I thought the food was nice, well presented, but over priced. One of the best things about dining in was the live guitar music - not too loud. The staff were helpful, although it would have been great if the person on the front desk had told me Carrefour was closed because of the Holiday, when he gave me directions. Also it would have been useful to have the gym (5 minute walk) opening times listed somewhere, as they too closed early on Maundy Thursday. We had no trouble parking in Cordoba during the day but the evenings were very tricky, possibly because of the Easter processions.
