In historic Cordoba, a warren of narrow, winding streets, it’s a rarity to find spacious, contemporary rooms and soaring public areas. Such is the charm of the AC Hotel Cordoba Palacio, with its on-site parking, rain showers, and clever touches like bedside spotlights for reading. From the atrium of a lobby, with dark wood floors and glass walls, to ultra-modern guestrooms with gorgeous views, the hotel brings a sleek design to this historic city. The pool deck also provides views to the city, as well as a relaxing place to swim an unwind. When it’s time for dinner, the restaurant provides international cuisine with a twist, by using traditional ingredients characteristic of Cordoban cuisine.
In the Area
The Andalucian city of Cordoba is known for its colorful medieval history, and the mix of Christian, Muslim and Jewish influences that have shaped its architecture, cuisine and culture. For a look at the city’s historic foundations, take a tour on the Roman Cordoba Route, to visit some of the remains of Roman Cordoba, circa the first century AD. Explore the history of the Inquisition at sites throughout the city, or visit the Alcazar Castle. The Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, built around the year 1000 AD is a magnificent Renaissance Mosque, with walking distance of the hotel. Get lost exploring the city’s hidden patios, leafy, private spaces that are open to the public in May or used as oasis-like restaurants and cafes.
How to Get There
I stayed in this hotel for 2 different times, so I also stayed at 2 different rooms. First I stayed in standard room and second time I stayed at superior room. Both rooms were very comfortable and spacious. Very good and comfortable beds. Only reasons why I dropped my rating is that in my first standard room there was no slippers available, even though my colleagues room offered them. Also in my standard rooms bathroom there was a quite strong smell of mold present. Also neither standard, nor superior room offered shoe polishing products.
Nice hotel, in the most perfect location for visiting the old city of Cordoba. The hotel team is friendly and helpful, the facilities are labelled 5-Star but do not use the northern European 5-star benchmark as a reference point. The hotel is offering great facilities and amenities but the rooms are not at PAR. The whole fittings and furnishing are closer to 4-Star. The hotel double glazing is not at PAR as well and the rooms on the 6th floor facing the back are not very quiet. The Hotel underground parking is a great benefit as you can go directly up to your room. One more key benefit of the hotel location is its proximity to Mercado Victoria. We were walking over twice a day for breakfast and dinner. ( 3 minutes walk)
Stayed here for 1 night as part of a road trip around Andalusia. The outside may not be to many people's taste, but on the inside this was a great hotel. Really nice staff. Huge room with jacuzzi-bath (!) and 2 rainfall showers. Breakfast a definite highlight, had literally everything you could want and then some, we weren't hungry again until about 7pm! Also very much enjoyed the roof terrace bar. Wouldn't hesitate to return - especially as Cordoba itself is a fantastic place (and this hotel is walking distance from all the key parts of it).
Just one minor thing - the double bed with 2 single mattresses is a bit annoying...
A tip - book through their website to save a lot, as you may well get parking (otherwise pricey in Cordoba) and breakfast included for nothing. We therefore ended up paying around £90 for the night, with breakfast and parking. For somewhere like this, this is an absolute steal.
Not impressed by outside appearance on previous visits to Cordoba. Booked last minute not realizing that was the same hotel. Went to check in and were pleasantly surprised. Pleasant helpful staff. Beautiful lobby (modern industrial , not what I would normally choose) and reasonably priced restaurant. Room was amazing, view right down Main Street and fountain. Very large comfortable room and amazing bathroom with deep jacuzzi tub. Bed was ok, could have been a little more comfy. Linens nice, good quality. My only complaint would be the mattress cover was too small for bed and kept sliding off during night and was just irritating. Every else very nice and free breakfast was an extra touch!
The Eurostars Palace is located just outside the walled historic centre and it is an easy walk to the Mezquita. This hotel has been very expensively designed and built and, though it may be showing some signs of wear and tear, the quality still shines through. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with a huge double shower plus spa bath. Breakfast is very good. I booked on the hotel website and the rate was excellent value for money.
