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!

... discount for seniors, love that! It's a mosque, which in its day (up to 14th century) could handle 20,000 Muslim worshippers. This building is built with more than 100 pillars holding it up! But, when the Catholics conquered the Muslims, the ruler at the time ordered the building of a Catholic Church, in the middle of the Mosque! The alternative was to destroy the mosque and construct a new church so the resulting strange juxtaposition may be the better of the two alternatives. ...
... when we should have zagged but eventually lunched off the Plaza del Potro at Museo de la Tapas y el Vino. The dufus waiter forgot the ham, Tried a red wine with lemon, a cool drink for the heat of the day. John chose the tapas. It was just enough [12E].
Back to the hotel to freshen up and get the blog drafted for today. At 1730, went out for a short walk to cross the Puente Romano over the Guadalquivir River and recross it over the Puente de Miraflores, returning to ...
... I have only 3 pairs of shoes! And it was only going to be 2 pairs until I decided to bring my Tevas just in case I'm around water or if the weather is warm enough. Otherwise, it'd be just my 1 black pair of walking shoes that doubles as dress shoes and my hiking shoes.
In my daypack, I brought all the necessary items to keep my mind occupied such as my laptop, kindle, magazines, books, jacket, camera, snacks, etc.
I hope we have everything ...
... from barrio to castle, inner-urban high rise loft to spacious country houses, amazing.
So, the breakfast room was a glass-sided space on the ground floor near the courtyard. This guy is over the top with design, breakfast was art on a plate, good food too. Tastes of persimmon and scented apples with good coffee. We chatted and lingered alone in the dining space as it was really pleasant. We had risen early and the other ...
... 785, when Abd-ar-Rahman established Cordoba as capital of al-Andalus. As you enter you're immediately confronted by hundreds of marble pillars supporting beautiful terracotta and cream coloured arches. What astounds you, apart from its scale, are the geometric patterns and the tasteful Moorish adornments. And the coolness! It was 39 degrees outside! Of course, not to be outdone, the Christians when they conquered Cordoba decided to build a bloody big church within ...
