Hip heritage hotel in Cordoba's historic heart, with a subterranean tapas bar, a secluded courtyard and Roman spa baths
In Cordoba's historic heart, the Hospes Palacio del Bailio is a hip heritage hotel a 15-minute stroll from the city's iconic mosque-cathedral. The hotel occupies a collection of buildings built between the 16th and 18th centuries, and the interiors showcase original features including cool terra-cotta floor tiles and extravagant ceiling frescoes. The 53 design-centric rooms are decked out with dark walnut floors, hand-painted stucco walls and copper furnishings, and they also come with mod cons including free WiFi and flat-screen TVs. Fill up on Andalusian fare at Restaurante Arbequina, an intimate dining room with beam ceilings that opens onto a glass-roofed courtyard, or snack on light bites at the Arbequina Bar, a subterranean tapas place. Cool off from the Spanish sunshine on one of the five patios (one reveals Roman ruins under a glass floor; another features a small plunge pool). Visit the Bodyna Spa for a dip in the Roman baths or to kick back in the relaxation courtyard.
