I knew as soon as we arrived and saw the pretty courtyard, stylish lighting and candles that we were going to like this hotel. It was exactly what we hoped for; relaxed, comfortable, stylish and interesting (it has Roman ruins underneath the hotel restaurant, which you can ask to see, and is worth a visit as the mosaics and some of the colours on the walls are in quite good condition). We only went for the cheapest room (the dreamer room, room 110) but it was quite big with a little balcony and a large bathroom. For the price we paid and the quality of everything, I feel we got a really good deal. The pool area gets very busy after 3.30, but we always managed to find a lounger. It's not huge, but the hotel only has 50 or so rooms, so it doesn't need to be, and I prefer a smaller area than a huge, resort style area. The courtyard where the outdoor pool is placed is housed amongst orange and lime trees, very peaceful. The only danger is falling oranges, so be careful where you sit! In this area is the tapas bar, the food there was fine for a lunch snack (the main restaurant is amazing, best food in Cordoba by a mile) and you can eat and drink by the pool if you prefer. We didn't use the spa, but did use the Roman baths, which were not quite as nice as they looked on the picture, better when they lit the candles though and still very welcome after walking around in the heat all day.
Lovely, helpful staff, my only suggestion for an improvement is that they seemed understaffed at times. We often had to wait a while at reception and it was hard at times to find anybody from whom to order food or drinks by the pool.
The hotel is a little walk to the main attractions, around 15 minutes, but we knew that when we booked and if you're feeling really lazy, you can hop in a cab for 5 euros. The fact it was out of the centre only added to the feeling of calm and being away from everything. Would absolutely recommend to anyone and for the price and facilities available, would say this is one of the best value hotels we've stayed in.
