The family that runs Hotel Don Paula are very nice. The son speaks perfect English and while the parents do not, they are happy to play charades if need be in order to communicate. It is perfectly located in the historic center. It's very close to all of the action, but at the same time is up about a street from it, so you don't get as much of the tourist foot traffic as you would otherwise. Quick and easy taxi ride from the train station (less than 10 euros). We were given room 2 which was very large by European standards. It was actually handicap accessible, so that may have been why it and the bathroom were so large. Not sure how big the other rooms are, so if you want a larger one, then you may want to request room 2. At first we were worried because it is located right off of the reception area, but there is actually a door and small hallway that separate it from the reception, so we didn't have any problems with noise. Another big perk of Hotel Don Paula is that each room comes with a small refrigerator which guests can use, but they also stock it with free drinks for guests, which was a very pleasant surprise! Our fridge contained 2 bottles of water, 2 juice boxes, and 2 milk boxes. A great bonus! The room also had a safe, which was nice. Overall, I would highly recommend Hotel Don Paula. We felt that it was an excellent value at our rate of 85 euros. Also, the Mezquita in Cordoba is well worth a visit and the cost of admission. Additionally, the tapas bar/restaurant "Bodegas Mezquita" right near the Mezquita was delicious.
