A Colonial era property, centrally located a few blocks from the main plaza in this sleepy city, lovingly restored and managed. The staff operates like a family, eating lunch together with the "managers" each day right out in the breakfast area. Breakfast for the guests is a leisurely affair with plenty of food and the dinner ($10) is the best value in town and is excellent home-cooked style food. The pool is meticulously maintained every day and is so refreshing. The public spaces are just fantastic for hanging out and meeting other guests. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable- nothing fancy but welcoming with thoughtful touches- a Delpht tile in each shower, LED lighting, Air conditioning. The staff will help you coordinate any sort of activity and will even help you if you decide to use "guides" or drivers outside their usual referral network. Special thanks to Jost and Kirtje (I am sure I have butchered the spelling of their names and the website is down!) the Dutch hosts/managers- they are wonderful people who make time to hear about your life. Nohemy, at the front desk is a treasure! - though in fairness, all the employees are really like Nohemy, but she speaks the best English! If you want to practice your Spanish the staff will lovingly tolerate all your mistakes and gently correct you. We have travelled widely and Hotel Con Corazon stands out as one of 2 places of the hundreds I have stayed in that I will daydream about when I am at work! And don't miss the free Salsa lessons and great Margaritas (not free but worth every Cordoba). We spent 8 nights here. You will be very sorry if you stay fewer nights and you will be sorry to leave no matter how long you stay. How wonderful that on top of everything the profits support local charities to benefit kids, especially education.
