We stayed at this hotel for 1 night during our Andalucia expedition! Well, the location is superb, I have to admit. Just walk across the street, and you are inside the ancient walls and the Jewish quarter after 100m. But Cordoba is a strange town. You have to dig into the narrow streets a while before you grasp that you've fallen far away from your target. Having the best map doesn't help much. Besides, although youngsters seem to communicate in English, do NOT depend on their answers, because they have no idea of where monuments are, or what their names might be. The whole city smells even in mid-October, what a pity! The hotel, as part of a chain, does try to keep up to the standards, but in vain. The receptionist was quite rude while expressing that there were no smoking rooms. Not only was his English inadequate, but he was also reluctant. He made gestures, scrambled the reservation document indicating we had reserved a smoking room, etc. Maybe it is the company's fault, I don't care. If I have reserved a smoking room 6 months ago and payed in advance for it, I have to have that room, nothing can change that. Well, his ingenious solution was to say "you smoke if you want, what can I do?". Yes, in fact. Noone can do anything about it, but I hate breaking the rules, what about that? All in all, I was so upset that I did not look further into anything. Breakfast was OK. The room was OK, but a bit worn-out. Parking was too expensive and too tight. I'll file a complaint about this smoking room issue for sure, but I would not go stay there anyway. In fact, the room we took, smelled of smoke ... not only that, the city itself smells of feces! They charge you 8€ for the Mezquita, which is a cathedral built upon a mosque, but it is not worth seeing. Besides, there are many tourist traps in this town, especially the restaurants. Hard to beleive, but I advise everyone to stay away from this town during their trip to Andalucia. A 2-hours day visit would be more than enough.
