“Very nice stay in Gran Hotel Victoria”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

The business oriented hotel is located in the city center on a pedestrian street with plenty of shops and cafes nearby. Most of the restaurants we visited were 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel occupies an old building with new annexes so do not expect that all the rooms and created equal. We had a nice room on the top floor, quite big, a bit oddly shaped with a good sized bathroom and a window to the atrium. There was a good free wifi connection in the room, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. A fridge could have been handy.

A typical breakfast with medialunas and coffee is served in the breakfast room by the lobby. The staff was very helpful. There are offers available on the hotel's website, do check those.

Rooms are small and odd shaped. No proper shower. No parking space nor breakfast room in the building. The bed cover is unclean. Shame because the building looks lovely from outside

Not very good , not very bad. We first got a very small and not attractive room. After some pressure they changed it for a better one. Avoid the breakfast, and take the option to enjoy brakfast in next door Malafide coffeeshop if offered by the reception of the hotel

Located in a busy pedestrian mall half a block from the nearest road available to taxis, this hotel is a convenient place to stay close to the city centre. The hotel lobby is impressive.
Our room was described as an "executive suite" but anything less like an executive suite we have yet to experience.We would assume that the basic rooms must be very small and sparcely furnished and equipped. There was not even a comfortable chair in the room and the bathroom was so small that it was difficult to get in the door past the shower screen.
The included buffet breakfast was fairly basic. Hotel reception staff were quite helpful but often inattentive (eg often entering the hotel past reception without them noticing you).
Overall we would not recommend this hotel unless you need to be close to the city centre.

Room Tip: Don't be fooled by being offered an executive suite.

The hotel is located on a quiet pedestrian street within a short walking distance to Plaza San Martin, Iglesia Cathedral and Cordoba's mini-bus terminal. Also, a short taxi ride from the City's main bus terminal costing between 10 and 12 peso. Most front desk receptionists speak English. They are all professional, friendly and very helpful. Besides, free W-fi Internet access in the entire hotel, there are few other amenities. No room service - no ice provided. The beds in the rooms are smaller than twin size and two of them together do not equal a double. There are 4 hangers per room. No writing pad nor pen provided. No enclosed closet nor draws for your clothes. Just a few open shelves. One shelf the housekeeper insists on - is for clean towels. There is not a shelf in the bathroom for toiletries. No extra roll of toilet paper is automatically provided after your room is cleaned - you'll have to ask for it. Some rooms have a safe. If you have a room on any of the 4 floors facing the atrium lobby, it can get noisy, especially in the morning. There is not much choice for breakfast. Don't expect eggs, ham, cheese. The coffee is more on the style of American. Loud music is played in the small breakfast area which can be annoying when it's opened between 7 and 10 a.m. The hotel is a 1-Star, not 3-Stars. Maybe 2-days at this hotel is okay. Michael Z. New York City, USA

Of all the hotels we stayed at in Argentina, this one stands out for having a nice, large bathroom (most hotels seem to favor cramped bathrooms that flood when you shower). The hotel is situated in a splendid building with a beautiful atrium lobby. The free WiFi works well and, for breakfast, they offer you vouchers for either the on-site café or the adjoining Subway. As the hotel is located on a pedestrianized street, it can be a bit deserted at night and taxi/remis drivers seem to grumble about having to wait in a nearby street to retrieve guests (but we did not find the location to be a problem at all). We paid US$87/night, which seemed reasonable for Córdoba and we would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for one night in January. The place is pretty decent, the old building is quite charming and the lobby has been newly redone.

Like many hotels is Argentina, it seems that a lot of effort has gone into making the lobby look very appealing (it feels like walking into a four star), while the upper stories containing the rooms have not been as recently renovated. Still, the room was pretty decent. The big downside that I found to this place was the washroom. With just a shower curtain and no partition along the floor, the entire washroom tends to get wet when you shower.

The hotel could benefit from one or two more computers in the business centre.

Staff were friendly, and there was always one around who spoke English. Breakfast at the Bonafide next door (it is complimentary with the room) is quite good. The Bonafide makes a very good medialuna.
