We spent 2 nights in Las Casas de la Juderia in Cordoba in mid-May, during the annual Festival of the Patios. The hotel was fascinating, linking various historic homes and their courtyards together, with each of the 64 rooms very distinct. The location was superb, within a short distance from the extraordinary Grand Mosque (Mesquita) and the other historic attractions of Cordoba. Cerning the hotel, we found the bed, bath, breakfast, general ambiance all good. However, when we checked in, the receptionist said that we were booked in a "difficult" room. And lo and behold, when we finally reached our 3rd floor room and opened the door, there was an interior steep 12-step stairway (lacking a handrail) to also be climbed to reach the bedroom. We are seniors, and while fit, I thought that this could be a serious impediment for many and it should not have been assumed that we could manage this. Also, I was surprised that a hotel of this size lacked a computer for guests' use. The receptionist allowed me to use her office computer for a few messages, but I would have thought it helpful -- as we found in most other hotels in which we stayed in Spain over 17 days -- to have a computer for guest access. In general, when staying in historic hotels like this, I would also suggest asking for a cheerful, sunny room with some sort of view. Some rooms (e.g. on ground floor) can be very dark or facing walls.
