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
"Few steps to the mosque"
This hotel is realy few steps from the bigest mosque in western teritory and close to the jewisch quarter in Cordoba. Nice place, well equiped hotel, clean and comfortable rooms. The heating was on, in november it was pleasant surprise. Riche brekfast buffet, garrage under the hotel building.
"Good location OK hotel"
Very hard to find and if driving you have to go through pedestrian area to get here. An entrepreneurial man on a bike guides people in for tips and we'd have remained lost without him despite the hotel making effort to send out directions in advance. They have underground parking which is reasonably priced. You need to be a confident driver as it is very steep in and out. You are right beside the Mezquita which is great in one sense but it is also very touristy. If returning to Cordoba I'd stay a little less centrally. This is a very busy hotel with a small reception desk so be prepared to wait for check-in. The room decor is fairly naff as can be seen in photos but the bed was comfortable and the room clean. Cleaning staff seem to be saving on product - we had to chase them down to get more toilet paper and some shower gel. Seems to be a lack of proactivity on the part of the staff. We asked for an iron to be sent to our bedroom and were told it would be - didn't happen and took a couple more calls to get it. No-one doing anything to address the horrible squealing of every single bedroom door hinge. They just need oiling. When our key card deactivated at 11am I suggested they might change the time on their key card system - the clocks had gone back a week beforehand. They must have had dozens if not hundreds of guests coming to them about the problem but no-one thought. We didn't eat in the hotel - why would you when you've the whole city on your doorstep' The hotel does have a pretty patio to sit in which I imagine would be heaven in the heat of the summer. So an OK option and was reasonable value for money at the price we got it for but I would stay elsewhere in the area if I was returning
"Magical location In the heart of Cordoba"
The hotel is magnificent just at the door of the Mosque of Cordoba, the staff are very helpful and directly offers the wifi password and a paper that contains the major attractions in the city with their opening hours. There is a superb garden in the hotel restaurant that deserves to be visited especially at night and feel the splendor of the place. The room was quite beautiful, wide and clean, the view from the window is for one of the masjed doors. I recommend this hotel and would definitely revisit it.
"Hotel Next to the Mesquita"
This hotel is located on the street along the eastern wall of the Mesquita (an ancient mosque turned into a christian church, but retaining much of the moorish architecture). Unfortunately maps will take you to the lower (south) end of the hotel's (north-to-south) one-way street that would require you to drive the wrong way to get to the hotel. The hotel was kind enough to tell us we had to drive clock-wise around the Mesquita to get to the street in the right direction. The street in front of the hotel is wide enough to park to unload your bags. We requested parking at the hotel, but the underground parking facility was closed; we drove about three blocks to a facility north and west of the hotel to park, and walked back. The hotel was large and well appointed. We enjoyed tapas and wine in the courtyard that evening and really enjoyed the experience. A wayward turtle found his way into the courtyard and wandered around the center fountain while we ate. In the morning we had a wonderful breakfast in the hotel's dining room for 16 Euros for two - well worth the price, and highly recommended. There were many shops and eating places within walking distance and there were many sites to visit in the area including the riverfront, an ancient water wheel, gardens related to the Mesquita, and many narrow streets and interesting shops. We did see some excellent silver pieces that represented superior craftsmanship.
"Best approached on foot."
The route to the Hotel was down extremely narrow streets, avoiding tourists and outdoor cafe seating- not for the feint hearted. We should really have complained about the non stop dripping toilet, as it was very annoying all night. My main reason for the low score though was breakfast. It was chaotic and not a great start to the day. The coffee machines ran out, had to ask for plates etc and it was pretty much every man for themselves. Really not good enough for the cost.
