Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel El Conquistador Córdoba
Very nice hotel
This hotel is in an ideal location. The rooms we had overlooked the Mesquita and were of a good standard. Staff are very friendly and breakfast adequate. Recommended!!!
Very nice but check your room first...
A very nice hotel (check out the garden patio for a drink later-it's lovely) with a delicious breakfast and very nice staff (we arrived right after the Madrid bombings and even as the mood was of course upset, the front desk staff was quite honest about their feelings, which i appreciated) And our visit to the Mosque (right across the street-) was most impressive. My only caveat is check where your room is-ours was A) TINY (and airless) for 3 people and B)right over the men's room so we heard all kinds of "interesting" noises the first nite we were there. (=If we had been there more than 2 nites, I would have requested a change)
El Conquistador was a real find (especially once we found it -- the map we had acquired had the hotel on the wrong street). Parking underground (an interesting downward trip). Located right across the street from the Mesquita it could not be in a bet ter location. The staff was extremely accommodating (we asked for a view of the Mesquita so they changed our room and then put our friends who were arriving later in the room next to us. Expresso in the hall for morning coffee and the best breakfast we had in Spain during our 10 day stay. And the price is incredible!! Would definitely stay again.
A lovely place to stay
We just returned from Spain where we stayed at the Conquistador while in Cordoba. The location can't be beat. The staff was very nice, the breakfast buffet was a great deal, and our room had a great view of La Mesquita. We'll definitely stay there again on our next trip to Cordoba.
Fantastic location and great staff
We stayed at the hotel in late December 2003. Originally I had booked at the Maimonidies Hotel, but learned from a forum that the Conquistador was located away from the souvenir shops on a quieter street but practically just a close to the Mesquita. From our room we had an incredible view of one of the ornately decorated outside entrances to the Mesquita, not more than 30 feet from the window. It was a joy to see it luminated at night, at sunrise and later in the day. The room was clean and we didn't experience any of the noise problems typical of Spanish hotels with stone corridor floors and spaces under the door. We spent some quiet time in lovely court yard, but decided to have a typical Spanish breakfast at one of the croissanterias closeby. The greatest part of our stay was the extremely friendly and helpful staff.
A great experience
This was a great experience. The hotel was in the perfect location and the staff was very accommodating. I highly recommend it.
Great location, but hallway noise is bothersome
This hotel is across the street from the mezquita and has underground parking, making it convenient for tourists. Rooms are spotless and well-decorated, and interior ones look onto a lovely inner courtyard full of flowering plants and fountains. Don't expect to sleep in, though, because the marble floors and gap beneath the wooden doors will let you listen in on everything that goes on in the hallways. Combine that with a mostly American clientele, and you can expect to be awakened early and loudly. Still, one of the best hotels near the mosque.
Great hotel, perfectly located
A great hotel which is perfectly located next to the mezquita, in the center of all the activity. It also has its own parking garage and offers a good breakfast buffet. Rooms were clean, enough space and had all the facilities, including a nice bedroom. Really good value for money !
The Nicest Hotel in Cordoba, with the greatest staff!
At the beginning of my trip my luggage had been lost and there was no sign of it. The people at the Conquistador were so nice and helpful to me. They called the airlines everytime I asked them to see if it had been found and offered me any assistance that they could. They were the best! I will stay there again when I go back to Cordoba!

We left early morning for Toledo, often called: City of Three Cultures: Arab, Christian and Jewish. The history of Toledo dates back to the Roman occupation (Toletum) circa 192BC.
We found parking at the end of a steep hill near the 13th century cathedral or the Alcázar that sits on the outskirts of the old city. The origin of the building dates back to 3rd century Roman times. El Greco lived here for many years and some of his works can be seen in the Gothic ...
Up and at 'em this morning to catch our 8:30 train to Cordoba. Some back and forth lack of decision making led to us not having a scheduled guide for Cordoba today although we spoke to many ahead of time. As I believe everything happens for a reason this led mom to stand in a not so short line at the tourist information desk at the train station. The biggest site to see in Cordoba is the Mosque-Cathedral and one of the main reasons we were going. Our ...
... yeh, Juan it's got good foundations, it's cool, solid. Might make a nice cathedral' 'it's a bit big for a cathedral don't you think, Carlos' 'no problem. Knock out a couple of arches here, whack in some marble columns and no one will know the difference. ' replied Carlos. 'it'll be like a cathedral with an undercover verandah on four sides' So the ...
When people ask me if I have been to Cordoba, I say yes and la Mezquita was amazing to see and I would go again. I only spent a day in Cordoba but the weather was very warm in the winter and I got some amazing photos and heard some amazing music on the streets from the locals.
The historic centre of Cordoba I find is very open and the river is breathtaking.
... all studying for a semester in Spain. Their easy unassuming natures gave my soul some rest, and before long we were good friends clinking drinks at the local pub. For the next few days in Cordoba, I wandered and explored - seeing the beauty of the Metzcal, a former mosque turned to a sweeping bell towered cathedral, getting lost amongst the King’s Gardens, where water and light played gracefully with the ferns and trees, and enjoying ...
