“Mixed feelings about the hotel”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The bed is hard-soft so you should get any back problems while staying at the hotel. Our room was generally clean and nice but 1) no new shampoo except for the first day, 2) very limited toilet paper availble, 3) cleaning lady forgot to take the trash makes me want to give a low score. The rooms do not have a water boiler for boiling water for formula milk. The staff was very helpful about us bringing a baby and offered a baby cot. When we had a problem with getting to the hotel they refused to offer us any help nor call the police as "it was our mistake" and even they said "it is not the first time this happens". The location requires you to walk 15 min every time you want to get downtown to e.g., mosque but if you want to shop e.g., shooes then it is good located as it is in the opposite direction of downtown. Breakfast is very good - go for cafe largo

Stayed here with my friends during August. The rooms were large and spacious, the hotel was quiet, and the pool area was quite nice. Staff were very helpful and offered to call a chiropractor for us & speak in Spanish. Good stay, would stay here again.

Very clean hotel and ideally located in the heart of the city, a few minutes walk from all attractions and the old city. We had a family room with my 7 year old daughter and there was plenty of space and the room was very clean. The picture of the pool makes it look bigger than it actually was but we didnt go to the city for a pool break so not a problem.

This hotel has a garage to park your car which was one of the key reasons to choose this one. Also it is a short walk from the old city and the main attractions. It has large nice rooms. Our room was on the reception level - a small advantage. We where taken by the excellent service this hotel showed from check-in to check-out. Seemed as if we required something it was allready there. A free tapas offered if you had a drink at the bar.

Room Tip: If you get a room on reception level you do not need to bother about steps or elevators. Our room wa...

Great hotel, clean and tidy room. Perfect wifi. Fantastic swimming pool, very useful at summer under 40c temperature outside. Good location at city center, just walking you can reach the city center. Good recommendations from the staff. Good value overall.

That was the 2nd step during our trip through Andalousia, in Cordoba. The outside look, make you think that this is a small hotel, but, tardis-like, it is quite big inside, with a lot of floors.
It was decorated with a moorish style which is quite nice.
The staff was very nice and helpful, showing us the way on our map and advising places where to eat and to visit.
The room had a good size ( for 3 pax) with A/C, well needed in Cordoba, in July!
When booking, we asked for our room to be away from the pool, which would had been noisy, and our request was filled, with the room showing on a inside court, with orange trees.
Wifi worked well also.
We were about 10-15 mn away from the historical centre by foot.

Overall I would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the pool to avoid nuisance, the pool is at floor -2
