Reviewed 12 April 2014

Only 10 minutes walk from the railway station.
Staff very welcoming - first room smelt of smoke - moved us to Room 106 - large room, comfortable beds - clean and bath/shower worked well.
Breakfast a little disappointing - hot food was hardly lukewarm - but otherwise ok
Quite noisy at night

we stayed here on a coach trip to Spain at the end of December - and thank heavens it was only one night. The hotel was noisy, I think the walls outside and in must be made of cardboard, and the bed (we were warned by the tour rep.) was made for Spanish people, i.e.. small and narrow and very hard. I was sharing with my niece and we were given a double bed, so a really uncomfortable night was had as I am 5ft 9inches and my feet fell out of the end of the bed - couldn't scrunch up as there was not enough room. The evening meal we were served was horrible - some kind of thin soup with a few veggies floating in it and the fish and pudding were dreadful. Breakfast was very mean.

The Hotel Selu was well-situated in the heart of Cordoba. We found parking on the street for 1 Euro, at a location the front desk suggested when we arrived (if you park in the same area at night, when there are no attendants, you can park for free). Left the car there for three days with no problem. We could easily walk to all the must-see sights in the city. Room was clean. Staff was helpful, and spoke decent enough English to help us with our needs, which was good, since our Spanish is less than optimal. Shower/sinks were separated from the toilet by a door, which was nice.

One of our few complaints was that if the lock on the door was not undone properly before leaving the room, the door would not actually lock upon leaving. After we learned to check it, we had no further problems. The second was that the heat/air circulation in the room would consistently stop working, and it would get humid and the temperature would drop a few degrees. We could call the front desk and get it operating again, but it became a constant annoyance as time went by. Lastly, all the doors seemed to slam as people arrived back to the hotel, and the sound echoed through the halls quite loudly. Of course, the drunk idiot coming in at 6 a.m. to the room above us didn't help matters :-)

Room Tip: Get a higher room, if available. We were at the end of a hall, but that didn't really help much...

The Selu hotel is a stunningly clean and sparkling hotel in the heart of Cordoba. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was well appointed with very good bathroom facilities. The price was reasonable for the setting and time of year 30th December till 2nd Jan. (Note for people staying at this time of year. Cordoba is a ghost town during this period. we were hoping for a big night out and were lucky to get a dinner in a restaurant as there was only the one open as far as we could find. Not even Burger King was open! Thank God for the China Town restaurant which was average food but it was open).

The only problem with the Selu hotel was the fact that while it states it has air conditioning in every room this is not entirely correct. The hotel was kept very warm and we wanted to cool our room down a bit but were unable as the cooling function is off during the witnter months. We had to sit in our room for hours with the window and door open just to cope. Overall though it was a good stay.

Room Tip: check to see the air conditioning is working

Stayed for 2 nights.
Decent rooms.
Had to pay for the wifi, and for the safety box.
Good location, close to the sights and the train station.
We had a small fridge in the room, which was nice as we could save some money by purchasing our needs and keep them in the room.

Good value hotel, nice and clean throughout although the rooms are slightly small. As with lots of hotels in hot countries the food could be warmer but the choice is good. The hotel is tucked away in a narrow road and is not easy to find if using a car but overall the location is very central to the main town and square, we are talking 5 minutes or so.

Just spent 2 nights in this hotel. Spotlessly clean. Small rooms, but not a problem. Staff all pleasant and friendly. Buffet breakfast, lots of choice but the English option (fried bacon and eggs) were cold. Paid 11€ per night to park in their garage, but well worth it, no parking in Cordoba, even in November Location is perfect, right in the centre of Cordoba.
