Why we love it...

Arabesque style, on quiet street

The Place

Hidden away in one of the narrow, white-washed streets in Cordoba’s old Jewish quarter, just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Mezquita, is this unusual little hotel, built in the remains of a 16thC Moorish palace. The only ‘remains’ we could see were a rectangular stone doorway and one stone capital, but Joaquin and Manuel Gonzalez have added plenty of Moorish touches, such as arabesque arches on the patio. They also run a souvenir shop adjoining the hotel, full of gaudy Moorish vases, but this does not affect (or reflect) the character of the hotel, which is run with a happy blend of informality and efficiency.
Our first impression was of a cool marble interior and a charming receptionist. The hall leads through the arches to a lovely patio, packed with pretty red and white dining-tables and copious flowers and greenery. Geraniums hang down from every possible ledge and balcony. There is also a modern bar where breakfast is served. Upstairs, the bedrooms are simple and comfortable; most have small balconies looking over the patio. An (otherwise impressed) reader thought the food uninteresting and recommends El Churrasco, five minutes’ walk away. Another (likewise impressed) reports night-time noise, possibly from a compressor. Another complained of heat in his bedroom, thin mattresses and uninterested reception staff.
