I suppose that like most people I visited Cordoba as a tourist to see its many historic sites - dating from Roman times - and to learn about the history of Andalusia and the sad ramifications of the Spanish Inquisition.
The old part of the city occupies an area which can easily be covered by foot and I chose an hotel within walking distance of the sites which offered a comfortable respite from each day's sightseeing.
Hospes Palacio del Bailio occupies good sized grounds and has been modernised in a manner sympathetic to the Moorish heritage of Cordoba while offering a luxurious and comfortable atmosphere.
My friend and I had standard rooms which were in a building separated from the main hotel by a charming garden and swimming pool. We did not have any views to speak of although we could have upgraded on arrival to suites with nicer outlooks. As we did not expect to spend much time in the rooms we did not think the premium was justified for us.
The rooms were well equipped and fitted out to a high standard.
From the moment of arrival the staff were welcoming, friendly, informative and helpful. This is not a cheap hotel but the personal and professional standard of its management are worth its price.
There are two restaurants which adjoin one another. The one with the glass floor revealing Roman ruins below provides high quality dining and also a good breakfast. The other serves lighter, tapas style dishes. The wine list is good but, like the food, it is not inexpensive.
They would have needed to sharpen up their room food service and their evening turn down service to win 5 stars from me, however to err is human and our stay was divine.
