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
Stayed a night . Paid a rediculos price for what we got - a real palce.
Very good location next to the old city.
Room is lovely and the bath room is great. Very clean room bath and hotel.
Breakfast was awesome!!
Service everywhere in the hotel was good and friendly
A great place!!
Check in-reception staff looked miserable and not very helpful. had to ask many questions
Room-comfortable beds, Bathroom was public so my friends could see me naked in the shower. Toilet had no locks and everyone could hear you in the toilet. even the smallest sounds.
Buffet breakfast-good variety. worth it.
when complained about room/bathroom no empathy was shown. the hotel mentioned all bathrooms and toilets were like this.
I wouldnt come to this hotel again with my 2 friends due to lack of privacy and empathy from staff.
One of the main reasons for booking this hotel in late June was to be able to use the pool which when we checked in we were told it would be shut all day on the 28th June for what we understand to be a private event, surely paying hotel guests should have preference.
This is an ultramodern, stylish place, well situated on the main avenue next to the Jewish quarter. Don't bother paying for parking, there are tons of free spots along the avenue (anything white-striped) or on the surface lot surrounding the hotel. The shower was pretty cool, a glass-enclosed twin unit - just don't be in there when someone opens the door to the hallway, you'll be totally exposed. We wanted to use the fitness center, but it's really a fiction - not a single machine worked (apparently no one ever tries to use this room), leaving just the free weights. However, management salvaged the situation by giving us free passes to the excellent gym across the street. Kudos to them.
We stayed just two nights at the hotel and found the stay comfortable and conveniently located to the entrance of the old town with quick access to the famed Mezquita, which is a must-go in Cordoba. The bath and toilet areas are separated which provide for time-saving morning routines for two. The big 1-litre bottle of water provided as part of the welcome was truly appreciated, given the summer heat. Service at the reception counter was helpful and cheerful. The hidden gem is the restaurant in the hotel. It served the BEST iberico pork fillet throughout our entire 15-day trip in Spain! It was juicy, tender and tasty! Highly recommended! Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
