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!

... Moor's sophisticated architecture. As you continue on, you can see the baroque and Gothic elements of the Catholic construction.
Originally it was a Christian church that built by the Visigoths. When the Moors conquered Spain in the dark ages, they tore it down and built this place. The Catholics then took part of the middle for the cathedral and basically the rest of it as it was. ...
... halves in the sauce to add texture. Lastly we chose spinach and pine nut croquettes with salad. We have tried to avoid fried foods as there is so much on offer but these were cooked to perfection and not greasy at all. The salad though was a bit disappointing. Two half slices of tomato and some pickled cabbage! Not to worry we can say we have tasted the local food and enjoyed most of it. The wine was fair. Think I'll stick to the reliable Verdelho from now ...
... probably made me look a bit funny, and is likely one of the reasons I didn’t make any friends on this trip. :-) You would think I would walk less, but I was intrigued by a comic book themed cafe that was in Cordoba, so I went to find it. Whereas Sevilla is mostly flat and great for walking, Cordoba seems like one big hill...and for some reason it always feels like you’re walking uphill. The aggravation I felt with my feet only ...
... I did my laundry is right by the shower and is very nice. It's got really wide sides which is perfect for travelers who usually need a place to put things (like laundry or packages with your toothbrush and toothpaste. The shower and toilet are really clean which cool. The hostel is kind of a maze, just like most Spanish houses. My room is a 4-bed mixed dorm right off the kitchen, which is nice.
After I did my laundry I went out and saw the Roman ...
... C cathedral plopped right in the center of it! The Mezquita truly has to be seen to be believed, with 850+ red and blue columns topped with double arches of red and white stone, all symmetrical, so everywhere you look you see the graceful lines of the cavernous room. The Mihrab, although small, is richly decorated, and the acoustics are such that the imam could read ...
