could almost touch the mezquita
I have to agree with previous reviewers who said that this place is a nightmare to find if you're driving, but once you have found it and parked your car in the garage (€12 a night) underneath the hotel you won't need to drive again as everything is within walking distance. Our main problem was the works that are going on in the area which mean that the road we wanted to go up to access the hotel was closed and in in typically Spanish fashion the diversion was not clearly signposted!
Checking in was a doddle with very helpful staff in reception.
Our room (212) was fairly small but very clean and comfortable and we had a fantastic view of the Mezquita. The air conditioning wasn't brilliant but not intolerable.
The common areas of the hotel were nicely decorated and again very clean.
We had breakfast (€11 each) which was varied (we don't eat meat), fresh and plentiful.
Checking out was as simple as checking in. We were under no pressure to move the car once we had checked out (they give you a token to put in the machine) so we carried on sightseeing for a couple of hours before leaving Cordoba with very happy memories.
Can recommend Casa Pepe de la Juderia (about 3 minutes walk from hotel) for dinner - it was fantastic!!
Stayed here two nights mid September 2005 and we were very pleased. I asked for a quiet room and we had one to a side alley, very quiet. Location is tops. Step outside and you're at the Mezquita. Also easy to walk to the Jewish quarter, Alhambra, etc. Cordoba was one of my favorite stops in Spain because it was so easy to walk around. Plenty of places to eat near the hotel. Only drawback and this is true all over Spain is that they eat dinner late. Restaurants often open for dinner at 8 pm or even later! We appreciated our hotel's restaurant opening at 7:30 pm and ate a very good dinner there both nights. The room was a good size so we could open our suitcase up. Unfortuantely, the neighbor the second night must have had jet lag and started watching tv at four in the morning. Ear plugs would have helped. Especially enjoyed the courtyard in this hotel and that's where we ate dinner. Very romantic!
Superb Location, Great Ambience
I stayed at this Hotel for 2 days in April 2005.
Its location is perfect, situated immediately next to the Mezquita and within walking distance to all the other sites in Cordoba.The cobblestone streets outside the hotel gives it a very romantic, medieval setting.
The staff were polite and efficient.
My room was clean and of adequate size. It is slightly noisy during the day because of the throngs of tourists out and about on the street but very quiet at night.
Their buffet breakfast was also very good with lots of choices.
The entrance to the Mesquita faces the entrance to the hotel - so fantastic location.
Shame the rooftop hasn't been put to more use - the ideal roof terrace with views of the Mesquita.
Our room facing an inner courtyard, with balcony was ideal. Rooms facing the Mesquita looked very likely to be very noisy.
What can I say? Great location, very nice, clean room (had the best night's sleep of our entire trip), and the service was excellent.
The young woman managing the front desk made sure we had a quiet room (there was some construction up front), suggested an awesome restaurant close by (Casa de Pepe), and was genuinely friendly and helpful.
Best location in Cordoba
Hotel location was perfect, and our room (208) had the most wonderful view of the mezquita. Staff wonderfully helpful, and this hotel was the high point of our stay in Andalucia. Breakfast good. Cordoba our favourite of the Andalucian cities for culture and atmosphere. Loads to see and do, and take a Tourist Office bus tour to the archaeological site of Medina al Zahara - great value at only €5, and see the ruins of the Moors' country palace.
We stayed at the Maimonides Hotel 3 nights. It is the best place in town! You have the Mezquita in front of the hotel and you only have a short walk to everything what is beautiful in Cordoba!!
We had diner in the hotel and breakfast in the hotelbar. It´s O.K., the prices too.
The rooms are clean and nice. The walls of the rooms are maybe a littlebit thin.
But when you are walking through Cordoba the whole day and enyoing this beautiful town, you will not have any problems to sleep at night!
Bargain rooms are no bargain
The website said the hotel was full, but we were able to get a room on Travelocity for a very good rate. We were aware that they'd probably stick us with a lousy room as a result, and we sure were right. The room was tiny and had twin beds with THIN mattresses. It was right outside the elevators and loud, loud, loud. They were stingy with the towels, and Internet access was expensive. Also, we had to give them a 20 Euro deposit to get a key for the in-room safe. Worst of all, the parking garage was full when we showed up at 6pm, and we spend two hours driving around looking for alternate parking.
Given the other positive reviews, I am sure this is a fine choice for anyone who pays full price, but just fyi, there are some crappy rooms in the hotel, so don't get stuck with 'em.
Can't complain for 59 euros
Very average place, but in late August we needed a bed for the night with air con. For 59 euros we couldn't complain, but I'm glad we didn't pay any more. We booked through a website a week in advance, but a couple walked in from the street and paid the same. Right next door to the Mezquita and underground parking (not timed so you could have almost two full days for under 12 euros). Don't go there for anything special though.
If you drive there the access road (Calle Torrijosis) closed for re surfacing (poss pedestrianisation) so you will have to follow signs for the Mezquita and then drive around the back to reach the hotel. It looks as though there is pedestrian access only, but have faith - you can drive there! If you wish to sleep late avoid for a few weeks as the jack hammers start early. This applies to other places around the Mezquita too.
Hotel looks like it would have been good in the 70s and I find it hard to believe it was refurbed in 2000 as website claimed.
As we wandered the streets most hotels in Cordoba looked pretty tacky, but the NH Amistad looked as though it had the nicest location and looked good from the street.
If you're in Cordoba you MUST go to the Hamman - Medina Califal
HAMMAN, Baños Arabes, C\ Corregidor Luis de la Cerda, 51. Córdoba. Not quite as good as Seville, but nonetheless a worthwhile 20 - 27 euros to spend.
