Hotel La Llave de la Juderia

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2011

I stayed here for only one night in May. I arrived from Seville at 10 am. My room was not ready, but the gentleman at the desk could not have been kinder. He offered me breakfast, maps, directions and of course luggage storage. When I return after several hours' sightseeing there was a glass of sherry and a lovely room awaiting me. The room faced the inside courtyard. Ones facing the street may be nosier; this was pin drop quiet. The room was very comfortable, the bathroom fully supplied - as was a computer with internet service (free). My only regret was that my schedule allowed me only one night here. The restaurant - same name and a few doors down - provided a wonderful dinner at very reasonable prices.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights at the beginning of June. We drove our hire car using the sat nav which found the hotel fine. Admittedly the driving is a little scary as the streets are narrow and suddenly a street will be full of a party of tourists but we managed.

On arrival the hotel manager checked us in and gave us a welcome drink of the local wine. He was so helpful, informative and laid back but very efficient. He supplied a list of opening times to all the major tourist attractions and circled them on a map he gave us. He advised that breakfast started at 8am until "well whenever". He also gave us free tickets to the alcazar garden lights show and nothing was too much for him.

The hotel has paid a lot of attention to detail and decoration. It has two open courtyard areas which are lovely for breakfast or a drink. The breakfast was very nice and you can ask for extras such as scrambled eggs, ham and cheese. Nothing seems to be a problem for them.

Our room was on the ground floor and was full of character and antiques. The bed was really comfy and the room had a computer with free unlimited internet access. There was also a flat screen tv with a few news channels in English. The bathroom was clean and large with a walk in double shower, toilet, sink, hairdryer and toiletries including a toothbrush set, shaving set, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, soap, shower cap, shoe polish and massage mitt.

My only negative comment would be that our room was a little noisy as we were next to the street and cars and people pass by. I am quite sensitive to noises though and my husband never really noticed any noise.

Our room was obviously the room for disabled access as the bathroom had a drop down grab rail, high toilet, sink with access beneath for a wheelchair and level access shower with drop down shower seat. As an occupational therapist I can say that this bathroom was of a good standard for people who require wheelchair access. The space around the bed in the room though would have been quite narrow for a wheelchair. The hotel had ramp access from the open courtyard into the hotel.

The hotel is located right in the Jewish quarter and maximum 5 minutes walk from the Mezquita, Alcazar and synagogue. The hotel also has a restaurant next door which is very nice. Not cheap but the food and atmosphere are very good so worth it and the waiter who spoke English was very friendly, attentive and also explained the history of the art work on the walls.

We would definitely go back to this hotel. The service provided was faultless and excellent. All hotels should follow their example and attitude.

This is a very special hotel, it is comfortable and the rooms are quite large. We had two rooms for two nights at the end of May, which I had booked through the hotel's website several months earlier. Everything worked well and the pleasant young man who checked us in was a delight, we never did see him again. It was the last stop on our trip through Spain, to visit the Mezquita, before heading back home. The beds were actually comfortable and each room has its own computer. We took breakfast in the courtyard which was lovely until other guests lit up cigarettes, but hey it's Spain and you can't eat outdoors if you don't like cigarette smoke! Cordoba is beautiful and the Mezquita is amazing.

Great little hotel in the center of the Juderia. Nice staff; pretty rooms; breakfast is included and they encourage you to take it in your room. Would definitely reccomend this place to all travelers to Cordoba.

It's located in a quite street in old city with lovely environment. We are welcome by refreshing drink. The room size is adequate as compared with other hotel in Spain. It's so nice that we can choose to stay in room for breakfast or eat at the lovely courtyard. We decided to stay in the courtyard for breakfast - it's so delightful to have so many choices in breakfast in a cozy environment. Each hotel staff is so friendly and helpful. It truely deserved a No.1 in tripadvisor.

It's a real challenge for driving to hotel with GPS, the street is so narrow that you can scratch your car anytime. We missed the hotel at first sight as the hotel sign is pretty small. Be Patient !

I can't add much to all the glowing reviews, except to confirm that this boutique hotel deserves the high praise. it is beautiful and very comfortable. We only had one night in Cordoba, but could happily have stayed longer. We had the blue room--I forget the name---and it was just right. It opens onto the inner couryard, so is very quiet, but still gets lots of light.

Instead of wifi, the hotel provides a computer/TV, which works very well for internet access.

The location of the hotel, in the Juderia, is very convenient for seeing the sights of Cordoba. In addition to visiting the Mezquita, Sinagoga, Sefardic Museum, and peeking into a few patios during the Patio Festival, we took in the Andalusian horse show at the indoor arena near the Alcazar. This was fantastic---we were so lucky to get tickets.

If you take a taxi here, he will deliver you right to the door, which is quite a squeeze in the narrow streeets. I cannot imagine trying to get here in a private car.

This is that rare beast -- a charming hotel where things actually work. Even the furniture is exceptionally interesting, sometimes a scary sign. But the bed was actually very comfortable and the bathroom was completely up to date. The room was quite large as well. A big plus is that the hotel is just a short walk from the main attraction in town. The restaurant is quite good too. Officially, this is only a three-star hotel, but it is a lot better than many four-stars.

Room Tip: We reserved a superior room, and it was fine
