"Old infrastructure so revive it based on its strnegths"
As soon as you walk in, it strikes you: spacious corridor, room, bathroom but also old elevator and the worst sound insulation I had in years (I could hear my neighbour plug in his cables of his computer). The garden and swimming pool (although cold so heat a bit the sun) are pleasant and the free parking a plus. The room 323 was clean. The wifi is unstable and slow (< 1 Mbps down and up) and you have to log in via a browser (a nuisance for smartphone). SO dear management, invest in sound insulation, modern wifi and sun powered pool heating and keep the pluses as is and you will win in the future.
"WHAT A LET DOWN."
We stayed here as part of a tour and it was the only one that let us down. I loved the setting and the garden and pool area but the hotel was badly run. Rooms need a revamp too. Manager was absent and hotel was staffed by inexperienced teenagers.
"Bar service a bit random!"
We stayed here as part of a Titan tour so did not choose the hotel but had no real complaints. Fairly standard for the hotels on the tour it had a safe & fridge but no tea/coffee facilities in the room. There was complimentary water waiting in the fridge. The room was spacious but there was an internal step which was a bit hazardous. The buffet meals were acceptable but nothing remarkable. It was a bit hit & miss to get drinks as there was no actual bar but there was a roaming barman if you could find him! It was however very pleasant to sit in the garden when you actually got a drink. This property is set in a residential area (which looked very up market) so not in walking distance of the beautiful old city.
"Lovely Grounds and Pool; Comfortable Room"
This stay was our first at a Spanish resort-style hotel. Most of our fellow guests were families with children, who were there for lounging and swimming in the beautiful pool (the temperature was in the high 30s). Checking in was smooth and pleasant - all the hotel staff we encountered were very helpful - and our 2nd floor room was large and comfortable, with tiled floors, a huge marble-tiled bathroom, a double window opening on to the back of the hotel with attractive landscaping, and a mini-refrigerator in the television armoire. Our bed was two twins pushed together to make an oversized King (in our opinion, the best configuration for European hotels, as the double beds are too small). We ate at the hotel restaurants the two nights we were in Cordoba, after returning from exploring the city and eating our primary meal at lunch. The menu wasn't extensive, but all the items we had were well-prepared and nicely presented, with their version of the local specialty, Flamenquin, particularly good. We had the 10 Euro buffet breakfast one morning, and felt it was worth the money, offering good variety as well as Spanish versions of typical North American breakfast fare - scrambled eggs and (underdone) bacon. The only downside was terrible coffee from a machine. The hotel is located a good 5 kms out of town, but they offer a one-way free shuttle at 9:30 am, and we took the bus back (Cordoba has lovely, clean, air-conditioned buses that cost under 2 Euro for the trip). We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel!
"Big hotel with poor service"
This is a huge hotel which seems a little out of place in a nice residential area. It has a big pool that is very popular for patrons with kids, so not for us. Our room was big, but fairly basic. It was supposedly a 'room with a view', but only had a view of a grassy area and a path. Buffet breakfast was basic, but plentiful. Worse aspect was the service. The man at reception gave us poor advice about access and parking for the Old City. And the barman wanted to charge us for a bucket of ice. Next time we will look for another option in Cordoba. However, it's a cheap option that is clean and spacious.
