Stayed 2 nights in an ordinary double after reading all the good reviews. The biggest advantage it has is the roof terrace which is wonderful if the weather is good enough. Bearing in mind this hotel is twice the price of many hotels in Cordoba Centre I couldn't set it apart from other Spanish luxury hotels I have visited which have actually been cheaper. The staff are very attentive, nice and accommodating and everything is clean and safe. However, as it is so small and our room was overlooking the main courtyard we could occasionally hear the buzzer at night as guests came in and one night when guests had dinner we heard things being cleared away but by 11 to midnight it calms down. Also the staff didn't seem very knowledgable on the best non touristy restaurants to visit. Breakfast is also a little bit difficult as the staff on the reception double up serving in the kitchen. I couldn't really justify the price of the hotel with the experience. Sure enough there are extras like apples, bathrobes and slippers but no coffee/tea facilities and this is the first turn down service I've had without a chocolate ;-p.
That said if you don't mind what you pay, want to feel safe, don't like the idea of staying with the masses, like a good view from the terrace and like small hotels then you'll probably like it.
Tip: We bought a 7.20 eur ticket form the tourist office which gave us access to the Alcazar, Romano house museum and historic Arab Baths. I'm not sure I saw this ticket advertised anywhere. NB Most museums etc shut 230pm Sunday and all of Monday.
830-930 free entry Mezquita except Sunday.
