My wife and I had made reservations, and gotten the impression from Lonely Planet that the hotel offered parking. I contacted the hotel the day before our arrival, and was informed that parking was a 10-20 minute walk to a public parking garage. We drove to the hotel, via extremely narrow and crowded streets, but could find no place to pull out. I tried one spot, but people were shouting at us to keep moving, or else the police would punish us.
WeI drove on a few hundred yards and found a very nice place, (Hotel Los Tilos) with room to pull out. They had no parking, but told us about a public garage just around the corner - which Hotel Lola never mentioned. I cancelled our reservation at Hotel Lola, and was told that they would charge me for half of our three-day stay. I explained my problem with parking, and they did agree to charge me only for one night's lodging.
The streets in the Juderia in Cordoba are very narrow, as usual, but unlike in other Spanish cities, cars are allowed in the narrow lanes, apparently at the request of some hotel operators. It made walking around scary. One had to flatten oneself against walls to avoid the rear view mirros of passing cars.
