It is truly a wonderful experience staying at this hotel Cordoba is beautiful anyway but this is an oasis in a hot city. A wonderful welcome, lovely rooms and so close to everything you need. We have stayed 3 times now and really wouldn't go anywhere else! The roof top terrace at night must be one of the highlights.

A really charming hotel, in an old building , beautifully renovated. Great Value for money and in a great location with fantastic views of Cordoba from the rooftop terrace. Easy access to La Mezquita, the river and all the principal sites.

Balcon de Cordoba is exactly the type of boutique accommodation we look for when traveling in Europe-charming, small, centrally located and with attentive service. As we were here in July, we appreciated the room being a comfortable place to hide out during the peak hours of the heat of the afternoon. I really understand the need for the siesta now!... More

i have to say this was my favorite stop during our Spain trip. In one word I would describe our stay at El Barcon as magical. The hotel itself is gives of an intimate feel with only a limited number of suites, which allows the staff to be super attentive to their guests, making sure we were always happy, comfortable...

We have just had an exceptional stay in this wonderful hotel, situated right in the heart of Cordoba. The hotel is beautifully decorated with many historical artefacts. The rooms are all very comfortable with large beds, soft pillows, air conditioning, etc... There is a lovely inner courtyard for lunch or dinner and a great rooftop bar to have your sundowner...

We went to see for 2 nights if this hotel merits having the highest classification on Tripadvisor, it does: Quality of sleep is of uttermost importance in a hotel and Balcon de Cordoba offers huge beds, top quality linen, an enormous mattress, perfect temperature adjustments and control over the light. All in a nicely designed environment, with a mix of... More

We loved the room with the balcon and canopied bed under the Andalusian skies, the beautifully renovated part of a convent from the Middle Ages, the warmth and personalized service, the modern amenities and dining al fresco overlooking the Mesquite

This is a gem of a hotel and worth every penny. I loved the mini tour that the hotel reception gave us, explaining the history of this old former convent and the mosaic pebbled courtyard. The most spectacular views of Cordoba can be had from the rooftop terrace. A beautiful tranquil place to spend the late evenings looking out over... More

This is a charming hotel, in an historic building that has been beautifully renovated. Staff were attentive, and willing to help with all sorts of things, including flight reservations and mailing home of a large purchase. Highly recommended!

My only regret of our trip is that it would have been nice to spend more time in the hotel; I feel we didn't explore all that there was to offer. However, the staff were amazing, the food was wonderful and the next time we go to Cordoba, we will definitely be staying here! We were in Cordoba for the... More
