I'd like to say only nice things about this place because the staff, location & general cleanliness are so good but unfortunately the hotel lacks any noise proofing between rooms so you will hear everything your neighbours are doing - & I mean everything.

My advice would be take ear plugs & be prepared. The cost, $50 per night, make it very attractive & the free coffee/tea from 4pm makes it social & a really nice touch however the noise issue is a let down.

Location wise you will not get a better location, literally opposite the walls of the Mesquita. Be warned about the sound & you will have a happy stay.

We felt we had hit the jackpot with this wonderful room at an affordable rate, in touching distance to the Mezquita and the river. Our beautifully decorated corner room with 2 balcony windows was large enough and the bathroom newly renovated. The guesthouse itself is newly renovated and has a modern yet authentic feel. The free coffee and tea in the afternoon in the internal courtyard is a nice touch and appreciated. The only downside of this beautiful environment is that it is extremely noisy on the 1st floor, not from inside the hostal, but from the street noise. This is one of the busier roads, so the cars, motorbikes, horse-drawn carts and people chatting walking past, make this tricky to sleep before 02h00 and after 08h00. Earplugs are a definite must here. For me ...happy to cope with the noise for the central environment, beautiful room and views. An added bonus ...the staff are really friendly and helpful. Highly recommended !

Room Tip: Corner room facing the road for the view and the beautiful balcony windows. If noise is an issue though, rather rooms not facing the street, however these do not have outside windows, only courtyard windows.

We stayed in this hostel one night and it was great. The room we got was pretty small, but it had everything you need: tv, cupboard, ac, private bathroom. The hostel has been recently renovated, so everything was new and great looking. Also, everything was very clean.
In the afternoon, tea and coffee were served for free in the interior patio.
The location was by far the best: it's just 5 meters away from the Mezquita, in a very picturesque street, full of restaurants, shops and cafes.

I'll definitely go back next time I visit Córdoba.
Good hostel for a good price!

If what you want is a decent place to sleep in old Cordoba then this is for you. It's a hostal - not an inn or B&B as some have expected - that's just Tripadvisor's category. A hostal in Spain provides you with a room and little else - so on that basis I was not disappointed - in fact I was more than pleased with our choice.

Even before we arrived we had good service - a welcome email will loads of information about getting there and what to do once you had arrived. On arrival we had a warm welcome and our room was ready 2 hours before normal. Well done! The room itself was modern with good quality furnishings and most importantly a comfortable bed. The bathroom was a basic shower room. The aircon worked and was quiet. Did not try TV. WiFi worked perfectly in room and on patio. Also every day at 16:00 complimentary tea and coffee is served on the patio.

The only downside was the limited storage in the room. The wardrobe was small with only 4 coat hangers supplied and a dressing table and chair would have been useful. The bathroom needed a shelf on which to place your toiletries.

The location could not be bettered (equalled but not bettered). Quite literally a few metres from the Mezquita/cathedral and within easy walking distance for the main attractions and numerous places to eat and drink.

Others have commented on noise - this is Spain - it's noisy - accept it! I suspect that this establishment has changed hands and was formerly 'El Tablon'. I would suspect that the poorer reviews date from this earlier period.

Thank you so much for your review! We are glad that you liked staying here. Hostal Azahar started in March 2013 so, as you pointed out, older reviews doesn't belong to us. We are working to improve the storage in the rooms. We hope to see you back!

Couldn't possibly be better located. Spacious rooms and truly exceptional staff. Only negative is that sound proofing is negligible and noisy neighbours could be heard clearly throughout the building, so ear plugs were a must for us.
