We both enjoyed our weekend break in Cordoba at the Hotel Exe Conquistador we plan a further trip next year and plan to stay at the Conquistador..Comment of B. John , Spain the 2015-04-23
"Nice clean hotel"
Very nice and clean hotel. Free parking. Great working air conditioning. It's right next to Mesquita. Just a few meters away from Mesquita entrance. Walking distance to great restaurants and all sights.
"location, location, location!"
This is a great hotel. Clean rooms, well equipped and comfortable. Common areas very pleasant with a lovely courtyard gared to relax in. We booked very early and got a grrat deal. But most importantly the location is totally fabulous!! We booked a room with a view of Mesquita and what a view it was the balcony doors opened onto a view of the patterned gates on the Mesquita wall about 8 meters away. Totally stunning. The only downside was the room was too hot, the staff said aircon was centrally controlled in winter and they would do nothing about it even asked 3 times and due to the number of visitors enjoying the evening well into the night having the doors open to cool the room was just too noisy. This is only criticism of a fab hotel but it did mean we did not sleep well despite really comfortable beds. The carpark is very tight but at least it has a carpark which is amazing given its very, very central location. Not for a nervous driver. This
"Bad experience in otherwise wonderful trip to Spain"
This was one of the worst hotel rooms for the price we stayed at in Spain. We were surprised that the staff was not great either. We called prior to entering the city to ask for parking directions. They gave us directions, however did not mention that if you booked with Expedia or Hotels.com you don't get to park there. They gave us another address once we got there. The room was sooo small that the door to the closet where the safe is located could not be opened. Like most hotels in Spain, the heating is on in winter, but on a warm day, we opened the windows in other hotel rooms. However, this room, the window again is blocked by the bed. There is major issues with noise as well. The door is not sealed to the hallway even allowing light. Do not go there. Wasted our money because they said they had car park. You can choose any other hotel in the area and park in the garage close by that are easy to find.
"Elegant hotel across from the Mezquita"
I stayed in the Conquistador for three nights and was very impressed with the hotel 's overall architecture, design and the friendly attitude of the staff. The breakfast buffet had varied selections of very good quality, including traditional Andalusian breads, local cheeses, tomatoes and fresh orange juice. It has a beautiful inner courtyard with a small garden. The rooms are of a high quality including the bed linens and the overall decor that reflects the colors of the Mesquita. As the Mesquita is across the street it is easy to go in between 9 -12 as after that time it is crowded with bus tour groups. Cordoba is wonderful at night as most tourists see it on a day trip. I came by train and the taxi fare from the station to the hotel is 7 euros. The hotel also has an a la carte restaurant, a gift shop and offers room service. One down side, which is mentioned in many reviews, is the noise that can carry between rooms as they are not entirely soundproof.
"A gem of a hotel!"
So, arriving with a car was a bit scary, the hotel is opposite the Mesquite. The roads are as expected very narrow but there is good underground parking. Have faith in the directions you are sent and you'll be fine. A lovely hotel, clean, comfortable and surprisingly busy for out of season. Breakfast was very good. There is a little courtyard with orange trees which was very pretty and lovely to relax in.
