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!

Travel Blogs from Córdoba
... The architecture is like a mosque (the equivalent of a church for Muslims), with lots of arches and patterns, and not so many pictures and pillars, like the other full Cathedrals in Spain. A section of the floor at one end of the Mezquita was converted into glass, so you could see the old tunnels beneath the floor of the Mezquita. The decoration on the arches was mostly red and white lines, like you can see in ...
... the night before when it opened. Now we saw more of it. There are many large tents with organizations selling food and dancing. Many of the woman wear fancy flamenco dresses. We also saw a parade of horse drawn carriages with people dress up in fancy dresses.
In the evening we drove up the mountain behind town. We stopped and looked back at Cordoba. We also stopped and looked at a cork tree.
... The columns used in the building were recycled from old Greek and Roman buildings, so they are fairly different, only about 2 or 3 of the same type of columns. It was beautiful. You could spend all day in there and still not see all of the detail work.
To be honest, this entry was kind of week, but I just wanted to throw something out there about my last few days in Morocco and my one day in Cordoba, just a short ...
... big) taking a bunch of photographs before heading along to the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos (Castle of Christian Monarchs). The castle itself wasn't too exciting inside, but the main attraction here is the gardens. They were very beautiful and reminded me of Alice in Wonderland with all the high hedges etc. After visiting these two places, I headed back to the old Jewish area and visited, among other smaller places, the ...
... religion, you can only see the ghosts of what once was a rich melting pot before the paranoia and intolerance of the Inquisition set in.
Despite that, I could see going back to Cordoba again. I think there would be more to do if I were to go with others (maybe on a day when everyone else didn't happen to be still working, HAH). And with more money to spend, there are always the Arab baths available, as well as many more museums.
I am definitely glad I went! ...
