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

Hostal accommodation with very helpful and friendly hosts. Easy walk to all attractions. Good location for walking to mezquita and other historical sites. Do not miss the beautiful gardens at Alcazar De Los Reyes Cristianos. Go early morning to avoid crowds. Gorgeous. From the hostal you have easy access to tapas bars and set meal restaurants. Cordoba is famed for... More

This hostal is very well situated, just 5 min from the center. It's hard to get there by car but free parking is just 10 min walk from there. The building is old, renovated and very romantic. Very friendly owner, who gave us a map and told where to go and when. The place is calm and quiet.

Loved this old building. Big room with window on street.looked like 15 ft ceilings! Free coffee and tea mid afternoon. On a quiet street just a few blocks from the Mezquita. Very warm checkin clerk. Very clean and fun to come home to. They called a taxi for our departure. Very very inexpensive in off season.

We stayed at this hostal for one night. If you are driving, it is very hard to find. We had to park and call the hostal, and they sent someone to give us a map to the hostal! And there is no parking anywhere near the hostal. The hostal is on the edge of the old part of town, but... More

For a city break in one of the most culturally typical of spanish cities, this was ideal. Our first floor room was small but clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was very cheap at 4.50 euros each consisting of Cheese, meats, cake, toast fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, orange juice, all served in an open air...
