We thought this place was just awful & the only nice thing about this place is the exterior of the building - step inside and it all slides downhill.
OK, so it's pretty clean (but shabby) and in a semi-decent location if you wanna be near to a few bars but the double room with private bathroom we had was UNBELIEVABLY hot... too hot to sleep in and MUCH hotter than outside. (Think there must be pipes under the room or something, altho when we mentioned it to the receptionist she just said in a vague , not-in-the-least-apologetic way: "yeah... the rooms are really hot...".
I got sick on the second day in Cordoba from eating in a local veggie restaurant & had to sweat it out in the room all day & that was a hideous experience, given that there's a city-wide powercut every day for at least 3 hours (or so the staff say) so all the fans and internet etc cut out.
The breakfast was dire & def not worth getting up for, unless you like coffee that looks and tastes like sewage. Staff were OK - perfunctory & not that friendly - and altho they charged us each 10 pesos less for paying with cash, they got it back pretty swiftly by charging us 20 to keep our bags in their store cupboard till our bus. Not impressed - one of the worst we've stayed in in all of south america.
Our advice to those thinking of staying here? Find somewhere better and don't be deceived by the pix on the website.
