What are the best luxury hotels in Cordoba? This is an expert guide to the best hotels in Cordoba’s old town, including the top places for rooftop terraces, swimming pools, romantic rooms, and gorgeous views of the Mezquita of course.
Cordoba has an interesting history. The city was at its zenith in the 10th century back when it was the largest city in Europe, with a population of half a million. If you plan to visit Cordoba you will feel the magic and enchantment of history on every corner you take.
I have selected the best luxury hotels in Cordoba. Whatever your taste, I’ll help you find that perfect getaway in this wonderful city.
Hospes Palacio del Bailio: The Palacio del Bailio sits on a quiet street above Cordoba’s old town; the Judería (Jewish Quarter), the Roman bridge and the magnificent Mezquita are a 10-minute walk from the hotel. The hotel sits on the site of a Roman villa, completely refurbished and full of wonderful patios and a swimming pool… There are 53 rooms, all of them spectacular, ranging from a pair of Deluxe suites with walls adorned with elaborate frescoes to more standard rooms that provide all the necessary boxes for comfort.
Eurostars Palace: Located on the border between the new town and old center of Cordoba, Eurostars Palace has an unbeatable location, with design and facilities to make it, quite possibly, the best hotel in the city. It has 162 rooms equipped with every luxury, while offering meticulous, state-of-the-art design and panoramic views over the city. And let’s not forget the fantastic swimming pool and solarium on the roof, with splendid panoramic views over the city!
Las Casas de la Judería de Córdoba: The hotel opens onto a cobbled street on the edge of Cordoba’s historic Judería, and manages to be both peaceful and brilliantly central. The hotel occupies five beautifully converted ancient noble houses set around a series of patios with beautiful fountains (and it has a pool!). There are 64 luxurious rooms, ranging from small, impeccable Benjaminas and very comfy Classics to enormous Junior Suites and Penthouses with private terraces.
Balcón de Córdoba: Discreetly tucked into a charming old-town Cordoba street, the hotels is just a few steps away from the Mezquita. Despite the hotel’s super-central location, the 10 all-different rooms are gloriously private, dotted around the various patios of this old monastery. The rooftop terrace offers terrific views across red-tiled roofs to the Mezquita, its Patio de los Naranjos and 10th-century minaret, and the countryside.
Hotel Madinat: After a blissful day getting lost amid the winding streets of the medina, Hotel Madinat’s cool, tranquil inner courtyard with babbling fountain makes for a welcome retreat. With only 11 guest rooms the whole place exudes an exclusive feel, and you can expect genuinely warm and attentive service from the proud hotel owners.
If there were a golden triangle of Spanish/Moorish architecture (and there is – just look at a map and join the dots) you’ll find Cordoba at the peak with Seville and Granada making up the foundations. So why not pampering you booking a room in one of the luxury hotels in Cordoba?
