This is truly a lovely lovely place. We liked every little details. The location is perfect, the place is full of athmosphere, loved the rooms, the food, the views, the people that work there. Have at least a drink on their terrace. It is fabulous. Highly recommended!

We've just left the Balcon de Cordoba to continue our trip and it was very hard to say goodbye! The location, atmosphere, warm and welcoming staff (especially Elena at the front desk), and luxurious accommodations were perfect. Other reviewers have mentioned several wonderful aspects of this hotel so I will add these: a rooftop view of the Cathedral/Mosque that literally... More

Close to perfect small 4 star hotel package- friendly helpful staff who live up to their mantra of making guests feel at home, perfect location v close to main attractions but no tourist noise, attractive regional decorations throughout, excellent breakfast buffet and good small restaurant, lovely common courtyards. Get a room with a rooftop terrace and view of Mezquita if... More

Great location - and design and ambience but it's as if it's the first day at work - we are currently manning reception ( honest ) as now all staff have disappeared - they are very polite and happy but really don't have a clue - not worth the price book elsewhere or beware !

This small (10 rooms) hotel is perfectly located on a side street around the corner from the Mezquita. "Charming" understates the facility, which is built around three courtyards, the largest of which also serves as a restaurant, which we unfortunately didn't have a chance to use other than for breakfast and a late light nibble. The staff was universally helpful... More

This renovated old convent is staffed by cheerful and helpful people. The decor is modern, but old artifacts are tastefully scattered about. The restaurant has a limited menu, but the food is well prepared. Little touches such as an evening guitarist in the patio, or a belly dance performance add to the place's charm. There is even a roof-top terrace... More

As other reviews have noted this small hotel is perfectly located, a haven of peace and quiet even though it is so close to the mesquita. On arrival we felt ourselves relax immediately as the wonderful staff took care of us. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. The first night we had dinner at their tiny, 3... More

We chose the hotel after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. From being escorted to the hotel by a member of the hotel staff after losing our way in the labyrinth of narrow streets, to the very welcome drink on our arrival and to the tour of the hotel culminating in our introduction to the unforgettable...

This ten-room hotel is perfectly located off a tiny, quiet street but just steps from the mezquita/cathedral, the Roman bridge and the Alcazar. The service is wonderfully personal and the hot and cold breakfast was the best we had anywhere in Spain (or maybe anywhere period). Cappuccino and sangria were terrific. Hotel provided fresh fruit in our room and complementary... More

This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. From the minute you enter the courtyard with the lemon tree, you feel like you are are in paradise. The decor is magnificent.I loved the feel of the place. The staff are excellent. And the position is superlative. I would not look further than this hotel if i... More
