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
We loved this hotel in Cordoba. It has an excellent location and is a wonderful hotel.
It would have been a good value, except that we had to get two rooms for four people because they had no family rooms.
For some reason breakfast was not included with our booking. I thought it should have been but I booked through the AmEx travel page which doesn’t specify.
The parking garage is convenient but extremely tight. Perking is reasonable if you book it together with the room.
The rooftop swimming pool was nice (although also has very limited space) and the candy in the lobby made the kids very happy.
The hotel bar is comfy and cozy.
The rooms were clean, spacious and very comfortable. One strange thing was that if you opened the room’s door, anyone in the hallway could see directly into the shower. This was odd for us as the kids were knocking on the door while my wife was in the shower but I couldn’t open the door without putting her on display. (Fairly minor detail... the kids just had to wait a moment).
Overall a wonderful hotel that I would happily choose again.
A request for 150 euros deposit against purchases at hotel was processed on check in
At check out reception claim no monies taken even though evidenced on bank statement and still there.
They then took more money saying they will sort and it still hasn’t been done. Effectively I have paid double for purchases
I am furious particularly as there seems no speed to resolve and no apology that a meme we of staff did this. If this is 5 star service give me a caravan any day
This is fraudulent abuse of bank details and everyone should think twice before handing cards over
There are numerous other issues with this 5 star (!) establishment - shower doors that don’t close and flood bathroom, ridiculous lack of space around pool etc but I have never before had reason to feel that my bank details have been abused
Very comfortable room. top notch staff.
Very good rooftop pool with bar.
Free parking for website reservations.
Good breakfast but not 5 stars.
5 minutes walk to mezquita-catedral and other beautiful monuments in cordoba.
Coming back next year.
