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
The hotel was nice, and average. Location was great, it’s 3 minutes walk from the old city of Cordoba.
Very friendly staff, and the breakfast was amazing!
Only weird thing I found was the cluster phobic toilets. They were oddly placed
Perfect location! Drove from Madrid to Cordoba and easily found the hotel. Stayed 1 night with our extended family. Were able to park the car in front, unload our luggage and then park the car a 10min walk away in a safe garage (15 Euro/night). Staff were friendly and quickly checked us in. Lobby and courtyards are beautiful! Roman ruins can be seen in a few of the patios with nice explanations as to what the remains are. Rooms were excellent--very modern, clean with nice bathrooms. Location is perfect--easy walk to all of the sights, places to eat/drink beer and coffee. Our room overlooked the street and had nice french doors which we could not open but was a little noisy. Perfect stay for our family and visit to the Mezquita.
We booked in for 2 nights enabling us to explore this beautiful city. The room was very good although having the toilet adjacent to the entrance door was a bit of a surprise. The air conditioning was very efficient, there was plenty of storage space for clothes and the dual shower in the wet room and the jacuzzi bath were lovely to use. Breakfast was excellent - just could not fault the choice and ability of the staff to keep the buffet tables well stocked with food. Our price included use of the underground car park which saved lots of time trying to find expensive car parking elsewhere - saved me about E70 in fees. We loved the roof top pool and sun beds - amazed that we spent a good portion of one afternoon just lounging around and appreciating the opportunity to relax. A lovely stay.
