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
Located just outside the old town, overall an excellent hotel. Clean, comfortable room, and a really nice breakfast (included when booking direct on their website).
Has a rooftop pool and bar terrace which is a good spot, albeit with a limited view.
Really enjoyed our short stay and definitely recommend.
Less characterful than some of the other (albeit 4 or 3 stars) hotels within the old historic part, this hotel is most conveniently located. Just a few minutes taxi ride from the train station and opposite the entrance to the Jewish quarters of the old city, it is a thoroughly modern design with spacious interiors and rooms. While there may be lot to be said of the appropriateness of the external expression and articulation of the design of the building, the location and facilities is matched by the most helpful staff. Simply a good stay.
Enjoyed our stay at the Palace. Yes, the decor and room layout is a bit strange but the superior room is spacious and comfortable with a good shower. Only negative was a slightly musty smell - there are no openable windows.
Breakfast was excellent. More than enough choice and not too busy despite a couple of large tour groups staying.
Really liked the roof terrace and (unheated) pool. Invaluable on the hottest day. Nice loungers, comfortable seats and adequate shade. We also enjoyed the cocktails we had one evening.
Staff were also excellent - very helpful and accommodating. We had booked direct and they allowed us to check out at 2pm rather than 12pm which was helpful. They also helped us with booking train tickets.
Maybe a bit noisy but very convenient for the old town.
The hotel staff was lovely. The warm reception with an ice cold cocktail (it was a hot day) and then champagne in our room made us feel more than welcomed. The facilities were excellent. The hotel is nicely located and very close to the old town, and the old town is an incredibly stunning place.
We come from Malaga and tonight there is a weeding at the terrasse . No advice it was going to get close all night !! We choose this place for it ! It’s a shame when you book a suite and drive 2 hrs to have this ! Terrible
