Stayed two nights at this hostel-hotel. It is extremely cheap for the quality it offers! Location is right in the heart of La Juderia, a short walk from the Mezquita. Staff is nice and helpful and you can get a private, clean and comfy room for very little. It is just fantastic!!

The family owned hostel is on the old center of Cordoba just a five minutes walk from the Mesquita. You can drive there to leave your luggage but you will have to leave then your car in the central parking right behind the mesquita. The hotel has nicely puristic decorated rooms all in white as everywhere in Andalusia. The rooms... More

This hotel is at the very city centre,the old part of it,the cathedral mosque and citadelle,but,as it is a renewed convent,it is a bit cold in winter and no tv in the room(devoted to a calm and quiet escape). Breakfast is reasonable of price(4.50 pp) but don't expect a great stuff. Parking lot for only one car so book in... More

The staff was very friendly and very helpful (especially if you're not an experienced traveler). The room was not the biggest one but very tidy and very clean (one small issue with the shower head, but nothing to complain about). The location is great, very close to basically everything you should visit in Cordoba.If your room is oriented towards the... More

I recently spent six weeks in Portugal and Spain and this was my favorite hostal. Management gave me a fantastic welcome and was very helpful in helping me get oriented to the sights. I found my room to be charming, clean and quite adequate. It immediately made me feel like I was transported back in time and put me in... More

Clean, quiet, one block from the Mezquita, single room ensuite not expensive. Very nice place in the traditional andalusian style with the central patio. The room and bathroom were very clean and confortable, no AC but a fan and it was enough even with 45°C outside. Plenty of restaurants around, also the city center is only a 20' walk. There's...

Good location but unfortunately there was a yellow emergency light on in our room all night that along with the lack of AC did not make for a restful nights sleep. We didn't buy the continental breakfast so cannot comment. We stayed for just one night so if it was at a cooler time of year, or there are other... More

Traveling alone, I searched for hostels with private rooms and bathrooms. This cute hostel, and the name says, what used to be a convent, is perfectly located in the city center, no more than 10 min from the cathedral. Some restaurants are nearby, too. The reception show you a map with all that you must see, so thats a good... More

Very, very difficult to find, down the tiniest of streets but very central to everything. I thought it would be fun to stay in an old building, the rooms were small but very clean, the shower was fine. Breakfast was basic but had everything, fruit, yogurts very tasty bread, cheese and ham. The staff were kind and helpful but the... More
