“Reasonable budget hotel but door didnt lock”
Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

Very low price, walking distance to train station and old town sights. Rooms clean and reasonable size. Need to ask for key for the safe. Wifi very weak in the rooms, stronger in the lobby. Overall decent value for the price.
One major problem: the door would not lock properly and there was no deadbolt. We had to jam a chair up against the door for security. My wife certainly felt unsafe and would not stay in that room if she were by herself.

Stayed May 2012, traveled as a couple

Great location, 10 minuts away walk from the center, but right in the busiest gourmet district. It's full with great, local restaurants, with amazing, tasty and cheap food, and the hotel is right in the middle of it.
The stuff was very polite and kind, they speak English very well and answered all our requests, the breakfast is great.
The rooms are not very big, have this in mind, but who needs to sleep, when so many is happening around you!:)

We stayed three nights in this hotel and we have had an overall excellent experience with excellent treatment, very clean, good amenities, cheap minibar (€1,50 a Coke) not too much noise. Disadvantage: Even though a 10 minute walk from the bus/train station, the centre is 20 minutes walk.

This is a small comfortable hotel located in the heart of the shopping district, though not in the old town. The rooms are somewhat small with no view but are clean and comfortable and have a nice modern flair. The staff was tremendously helpful and very friendly. Considering we paid $76 for a room that included a very nice breakfast for two, it is an absolute steal at the price!

What can we say about this hotel? It is simply superb! Great location. Great personnel. Great value. One bad comment though, our room was not cleaned! That was very disappointing. We didn't even have toilet paper in our bathroom at one stage. Besides the housekeeping flaw, its definitely a hotel we would go back to.

I stayed at Itaca Colon for one night during a road trip with friends in South of Spain. This was the lower price we payed for a room during our trip and still we were quite happy with the choice.
The room was not big, but this was sufficient. There was not a lot of outside light as we had a room on low floor. The comfort was good and I slept well. There was not a lot water pressure in the shower, but this was still ok.
Wifi was free, fast and secured, which is alway important for me. Staff was really nice and friendly. They made their best so that we have a nice stay :-) They also provided great recommendation to go out at night :-) Overall a good choice for the price we paid!

Inexpensive and no-frills, but very comfy, this is the perfect little hotel to book a quite room if you make a day-trip to Córdoba from Madrid or Seville. It is quite difficult to find, but easy enough to get to from the train station. Just go straight down the Avenida de América from the train station’s main entrance. Turn right on Avenida del Gran Capitan. Just a block or so down, you’ll come across Alhakén II. Immediately then to your right again is a small, dead-end street which ends with the hotel. This hotel is located right next to a very nice and inexpensive bodega restauramnt which, one elderly Spanish gentleman informed us has the best jamón Ibérico in all of Spain! The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful.

One thing – we’re not sure if the room had air-conditioning. We couldn’t locate any discernable climate control switch on the walls. In any case, we slept with the window open and, this time of year, it was quite comfortable.
