Hotel de los Faroles
Ranked #43 of 65 Hotels in Cordoba
Reviewed February 12, 2013

We stayed here for two nights in February and couldn't fault it - especially at the price!! The room was spacious, the bathroom really nicely equipped (no hair dryer in room or bathroom but they will provide one on request) and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful in spite of the fact that they spoke little English and we speak only a few words of Spanish. We turned up without a booking and they were so welcoming. The car park is accessed by a lift from the fairly narrow street outside the hotel but they help to guide you in and it's a relief to have your car safely stowed away until you need it again :) There is a charge but it's modest especially when added to the very reasonable room rates. It's a pleasant and easy walk to the main town square and the Cathedral / Mosque and Cordoba is a lovely little city to walk around. Eating out is very reasonable :)

Cannot find fault with Hotel de Los Faroles as a city centre three star hotel!

We book this hotel for a two night break in Cordoba. The price was excellent for the location, and the hotel has a private parking which is great. We can't find any fault.

The guy who was at the reception when we arrived made us feel at home straight away, giving us suggestions on what to do and where to eat in Cordoba.

The other members of staff were also really helpful.

The room and bathroom were extremely clean and pretty. We have requested a quiet room and we did not hear any noise whatsoever.

The breakfast wasn't that great, but I can't really complain.

We had a great stay and would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Having read some of the comments, we requested a quiet room, and we couldn't hear any noises.

Staff was really friendly and helpful. It is nice pretty hotel with a courtyard. Room was comfortable and spacious. Location is pretty good. All the attractions are within walking distance. My only complain is that the TV is pretty small for a three-star hotel. There was also no fridge in the room. Overall, a nice and comfortable hotel!

Really enjoyed our visit to Cordoba. A wonderful city and the hotel was perfect. Really reasonably priced and good location. The only draw back is the parking.It is horrendous if you have a large car. We had tstop in the street(one way and narrow) whilst i alerted reception. In the mean time a bus came along and endless cars. We needed to reverse to get into the garage which is a lift down into an underground car park!!!!Luckily we fitted in (just) in our Qashqai +2 but worse was to come! The underground car park barely had room to move round to reverse into a space. Thank goodness we didnt need the car for our visit. But despite all that we liked the friendly staff but selected to have breakfast elsewhere! Do go and visit Cordoba - its very very special!

My family of four, two adults, two kids, stayed here for 1 night on our way from Madrid to Granada. The location was great, within easy walking distance to dining, sites and shopping. We particularly enjoyed a nice diversion to Salon de Te in the old Jewish quarter, very nice. The bathroom at the hotel was probably the nicest we experienced. Recently redone, clean, modern and practical. The room was another story. While the decor was sparse, who cares, you are there to sleep, not live. It was supposed to be a "Family" room, but clearly they simply took a double room, moved over the big bed and squeezed in two more single beds. This left little to no room to walk around and stay out of each others way. The glowing blue light of the air conditioner at night was enough to light the room and disruptive to sleep, we had to use a brochure to cover it up. The beds were firm and comfortable though. The street on which our room faced, seems like a sleepy cobblestone side street at first. However, as it turns out, its a very busy, one way entrance to the city and can be noisy in the morning. Staff was helpful and polite. Check out was at 11am I believe, but we wanted to stay and take in a bit more of the town before we left, so they happily stored our luggage for several hours in a safe location.

This is a quiet little hotel perfect for one or two night stay over. We as a family of four and were able to get the bottom room with 4 single beds and full bath. It was clean, located down a main alley way but still easy in and out for walking. The hotel does have parking but be aware you need a small car for the narrow cobble stone streets and to get onto the lift which will take you and your car down to the parking garage. The location of the hotel was perfect within 10-15 mins so you can walk to all of the site and restaurants. Our only problem was the shower drain didn't drain very fast.
