- Parking On Site
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 have a good location, next to the old town, nice design, fancy.
The room also nice specially the bathroom with big bath and jacuzzi. We called the hotel before and let comment on the booking to get a crib for the baby. We arrived in the room no crib, the telephone in the room was not working so we had to go to the reception, they bring the crib after 40 min, long time when small baby want to sleep. Then no thermos to boiled water in the room and no coffee machine ???? Even in 4 stars hotel u can find this.
From the front desk, the room (6th floor), parking, breakfast, friendly service throughout my wife and I were more than satisfied. I am sure some reviewers would find trivial items wrong but it reflects them not the overall experience you will have here. Book direct online for the most superb deal.
Well it may benefit from a great location but it cannot be described as a palace- not even a modern day one !! Whilt conempory in design , it already looks a little dated. I bet it was stunning when it first opened but ultra modern dates very quickly. Lovely reception area. Bright and spacious. Bedrooms have floor to ceiling windows making them nice and bright. Great shoer. Breakfast very good. Welcomibg and efficient staff. At end of day i do not beleive this hotel warrants palace of 5 staff rating/ title.
Efficient hotel, very well located just outside the old city. Modern, somewhat bizarre facilities (2 showers and a jacuzzi in the same space, windows covered with decals). Very full, staff could not handle the breakfast crowd. Far from a 5 star, but priced accordingly.
Globally speaking, we highly enjoyed our 4 night stay at this property.This however was by no mean a 5* experience.
The room was ample and afforded nice views thanks to floor to ceiling windows but the design was very dated, like late 90s / early 00's. Bed, mattress and pillows were not comfortable. Soundproof was very bad (kept hearing doors banging in the corridors). There is no Nescafé machine in the room, not even a basic kettle. They do not replace body lotion unless you specifically ask for it. The main issue was that wthe indows could not be opened at all. As many reviews pointed out, location was top notch (easy walk from train station and just opposite the old town).
Staff at front desk looked unhappy and showed little consideration for clients. No empathy whatsoever. We felt like talking to people at social security, not a so called upsacle hotel.
The very best thing about this hotel was breakfast. The selection of items was ample, products were high quality and constantly refilled. You can order eggs upon request and they always quickly come to your table with a smile. Staff at breakfast was genuinely doing a great job and I would certainly rate breakfast between 4 and 5*.
I am giving on overall rating of 4/5 because of breakfast, perfect location and because the room was great, despite looking old and dated (but clean and in good condition though).
