We stayed in this B&B for 2 days. It really was a super location for visiting the Mezquita and all the old town area including the Jewish Quarter and in fact for visiting any of the sites Cordoba had to offer. Parking was free and they have two allocated spaces at the end of the street, about 50 meters which... More

Stayed in room 5 at the front of the hotel in this charming little Hostal close to the centre and on the edge of the old town. Close to bus stop with Busses to the train or bus station about every 10 minutes (bus no. 3) The room was small, very clean, the beds wew a bit creaky, but OK.... More

What a delightful place. It is the owners' home: the rooms all above the main floor. Their living room/dining room is downstairs in a courtyard; but, you never hear a sound. This couple is relaxed and friendly, very helpful; you feel like they're your neighbors. Easy to get everywhere from their pension especially the beautiful old neighborhood and all the... More

This was a very homey family run pension with nice tile work in the entrance room - it was a charming and simple place - the room,though small and basic, was reasonably priced and very clean - it was very quiet and within easy walking distance of all sites in the lovely town. We enjoyed the artwork which, as mentioned... More

Location was great. We took a bus from the train station and it stopped right in front of the lane heading to the pension. We arrived early but the host was kind to let us store the bags so we can start our tour without the heavy bags. Love the clean room, the comfiest room in the 2 weeks that... More

I was so happy that I had chosen to stay here when I traveled to Cordoba. My room and the building itself could not have been any homier. The owners are very friendly and provide a very reasonable, very clean, very cozy place to stay. I loved my little balcony! I found the location to be ideal, being close to... More

Enjoyed a one night stay here, rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable. The hostel is a fine old Cordoban house with lots of character. Family run, helpful and friendly. Highly recommended for travellers working to a tight budget.

Stayed here one night in April, the pension is very clean (both the rooms and the place in general). It is aesthetically a very nice place with a very typical courtyard. The owners are friendly and always available if you need them. The location of the pension is ideal, only a short walk to the Mezquita, not far from the... More

This family-run establishment is a lovely place -- the antique decorations (they have an old sewing machine that reminded me of my grandmother!) were a nice touch, and so is the cute dog! It's quite a walk to the city centre establishments, but not too far off from La Mezquita, which is why we chose this place. The room was... More

Beautiful building in the heart of Córdoba's historic Jewish quarter. Quiet location but only a few minutes walk to numerous cafés and bars on the way to the Mesquita. The Mesquita itself is only about a 5 minute walk, along with the river and the Alcazar. The rooms are in a large family home. The owners are friendly and accommodating,... More
