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!

... so I watched one movie and spent the remainder of the flight trying to coerce my flat, flimsy pillow to be comfortable. Ben slept like a champ, the bugger!
The flight itself seemed to 'fly by' (pun intended) fairly quickly. We got into,and out of, the airport with ease. We took a taxi to the hotel and upon checking into the hotel, Ben and I decided that a hot shower and a short nap sounded like a great idea before heading out to scope out where the train ...
Cordoba is perfect for a two days stay. Most people take a day trip from Seville but there is a fair bit to do and see here. Here are our highlights from Cordoba.
1. The Mezquita - The cathedral that was once a mosque dominates the Cordoba skyline. The cathedral is beautiful with red and white striped arches all over the ceiling. Quite a lot of the original architecture of the mosque was preserved when it was converted to a cathedral in 1500s. ...
... was decorated so elaborately...I am not sure my pictures do it justice. And we learned a couple things, for instance, when it was being constructed it wasn't known how many columns were needed to keep the roof up, and so they ended up putting 1013 columns in this place! What's really cool is that each one is made of marble, and there are rooms where each column is a different type of marble. But the ...
... The food and the service were both excellent, even though nobody there spoke English and we spoke horribly pronounced, very broken Spanish.
After dinner we returned the kid to his room then enjoyed a nice coffee outside on the terrace of our hotel's café. Once the sun disappeared, a few of us took a walk across the bridge just behind our hotel, the Alamillo Bridge. It was surprisingly busy and lively with performers and hawkers to entertain ...
... long and needed a room.....booking.com suggested a place in the old quarter....sort of an old moorish castle....again great price so I book it a head for it as it seems Cordoba is as far as I am getting today. I'm liking this by the seat of the pants thing......
Seriously folks....trying to find anything in the old areas of towns here is like looking for needle in a haystack... You end up in these mazes of narrow streets surrounded by ...
