“Not a nice place to stay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel for one night in October and didn't like the hotel at all - rooms are not cozy, firniture is oldish, you hear all your neighbors movements and voices, two out of three bath towels washed but dirty all over, the staff's not a bit friendly. We were woken up by all this noise very early and we tried to leave the place as soon as we could. It's deffinetely not a 3 star and not the value for money (we paid 70 euros).

Hotel was Nice for One night and Cordoba was just a dream, could have stayed another night, so much to see and do and the Shops are fantastic. Flower street is a must if you visit, and also the main square with the fountain.

I couldn´t believe it when our tour guide told us that in this hotel we had to pay to watch our tv. The tv´s don´t have a remote control; the reception desk keeps them. I think that if you pay, they give it to you. We did not pay for this service so we were only able to watch one local channel and turn it off and on manually. So good for customer service and hospitality! The hotel is in good condition and in a fairly good location.

Well located near city centre, everything walkable. Rooms well appointed - ours had a tub (unusual) and bidet. Breakfast buffet (not entirely necessary - lots of cafes nearby, serving better coffee). Efficient, professional staff, a little impersonal. Ask for interior room, but don't take the one with the ventilator for the underground garage right outside - the darn thing roared all night. Terrific laundry nearby - will wash, dry, fold for 10 Euros a load.

We stayed at Hotel Selu for 2 nights, and I wish it had been 0 nights!
Location was good, close to RENFE (which we needed), short walk to the main attractions, as well as comercial area of Plaza Tiendillas. However, arriving at midnight, the narrow alleys were a little scary.
I am the kind of traveller, that when it comes to hotels, as long as it is clean, has running water and it doesn't stink of cigarette smoke, I am okay. After all, I only need the room/hotel to sleep, not to hang out.
The decor is just horrible, I could not get over it. However, the bathroom was new and nice.
The walls are paper thin, and we could not go to sleep before 1am, since the family next door seemed to be having a blast, laughing over something obviosuly hilarious to them.
Overall, the worst part is that despite the hotel being "no smoking", the room stank. It seemed that the smell was coming from the ventilation system. When we complained, the answer was "The hotel is no smoking... but if somebody is smoking in their room, we can't do anything about it." That is some useful policy...
If I were to go back to Cordoba, I would definitely not pick this place.

We stayed in Cordoba for a night on our way from Sevilla to Madrid. Since we had an early morning train to Madrid, we wanted to stay close to the train station. This hotel was fine for that purpose. Be mindful that the hotel walls/doors are thin and the beds were hard; however, the room was clean. The walk into the city center is a bit confusing and takes about 15 mins. They also charge for the use of the in-room safe which I found odd.

I stayed at this hotel just for one night and now I am happy I didn't book for a longer stay.

The staff is not really friendly, even though English is spoken at the reception (this is an exception everywhere in Spain).

The hotel claims to have a WiFi connection available for the visitors, and that's one of the reasons why I have booked there, but the connection was not working (they told me "maybe tomorrow").

The room was clean, but very small, dark and in bad condition. Furniture was old and both doors of the closet were missing!

By booking at this hotel I just took advantage of the very central location.
I am looking forward to visit Cordoba again, but surely staying in a different hotel.
