Hospes Palacio del Bailio
Travel Blogs from Córdoba
... I enjoyed our visit to the Mosque-Cathedral but I'm glad we saved the 18 Euro by going in the morning.
We recovered from the visit back in our room before venturing out for lunch at a micro-brewery called Cervezas Califa. This place was very much like Little Creatures in Perth. Delicious beer, equally delicious food and cool young hipsters serving us. Weirdly enough it was pretty empty when we went, but we didn't let this hinder our ...
... amazing how well it was preserved over the nearly 2000 years of its existence! A stone's throw from the Mezquita is the Alcazar which is a palace with extensive gardens. Although much smaller than the Alhambra in Grenada, the gardens were just as impressive and reminded us of a desert version on the Butchart Gardens in Victoria. Besides being a residence for the various royalty that called Cordoba home, the building also served as a fortress and was even used ...
We have all arrived in Cordoba, Spain, Douglas and I after a nerve-wracking jaunt down the tiniest little side streets and alleys ever experienced, twisting through the old Jewish quarter of Cordoba, totally lost and completely flummoxed as to what to do...the final solution, park and walk to the hotel, several kilometres away, using the Rick Steeves map to guide us. ...
... it is hard to imagine....no one wants to get themselves all agitated in that heat do they? It felt as soft as a kittens belly to my senses and FFS there were men (generally but not exclusively.....and also not just one) sitting singing (one might even consider it serenading, as I did in my heightened sensitivity) to their girlfriends. People (some olds and youngs) were sleeping in chairs and rugs on the pavements, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hospes Palacio del Bailio Córdoba
Precioso edificio antiguo con interiores muy bonitos y modernos. Las habitaciones son súper cómodas. El personal no podría haber sido más simpáticos. El desayuno también es muy bueno. Vale la pena por el precio.
El Hospes Palacio del Bailio es una rareza entre los hoteles tan sólo por una razón: la verdad supera con creces cualquier cosa que leas o oigas sobre este lugar. Mi mujer y yo estuvimos encantados con los edificios, la habitación, la ubicación, ambiente... pero sobre todo, por el encanto y simpatía del personal, que hicieron que nuestra estancia fuera agradable y relajante. El restaurante y bar de tapas eran excelentes y la comida una delicia. El edificio en sí es parte de la Córdoba histórica. Ha sido restaurado con mucha sensibilidad y lo dejaron precioso, mezclando muebles y colores modernos con las antiguas estructuras para producir una modesta elegancia que deleita los sentidos. La ubicación tampoco podría ser mejor. Estábamos a un paseo corto de los lugares de interés más importantes de Córdoba. El spa no estaba terminado todavía cuando estuvimos allí, pero ¡nos ha dado la excusa para decir que volveremos tan pronto como esté terminado! En conjunto, uno de los mejores hoteles en los que nos hemos alojado.
The Hospes del Bailio was clearly the highlight of our whole Spain Trip. A wonderful mixture of an old building, modern interior design and excellent service. I loved the patio with its swimmingpool. The food was excellent, the whole atmosphere very relaxed and comfortable. Only the bathrooms are far from practical - but they look great!
Das Hospes del Bailio war eindeutig das Highlight unsere ganzen Spanienreise. Eine wundervolle Mischung aus einem alten Gebäude, einem modernen Innendesign und hervorragendem Service. Ich fand die Terrasse mit ihrem Pool toll.
Das Essen war vorzüglich, die ganze Atmosphäre war sehr entspannt und angenehm. Nur die Badezimmer sind alles andere als praktisch - aber sie sehen toll aus!
I stayed in this hotel with friends for three nights during the Semana Santa. It was an excellent experience. The hotel is composed of a series of historic buildings which have been very successfully restored, and tastefully decorated in a modern chic style that blends extremely well with the old buildings. The hotel lounge is located above Roman remains which are being excavated, and which you could see through the glass floor!
The Hospes Palacio del Bailio is a rarity amongst hotels if only for one reason: the truth far outshines anything you might read or hear about the place. My wife and I were enchanted by the buildings, the room, location, atmosphere... but above all by the warm and friendly staff who made every minute of our stay pleasurable and relaxing.
We arrived in Cordoba without a hotel reservation but with our Trip Advisor reviews in hand at 9PM on Feb 10, 2007. We were able to call from another hotel to hold our rooms. It was a real adventure finding the Hospes Palacio del Bailio, something we ended up doing on foot but the staff was extremely gracious and sent us back to find our husbands and car in a taxi that then guided us back to the hotel. The hotel is truely beautiful...a real blend of old and new that spoke to their commitment to preserve the history of the facility. It was one of the real highlights of our trip to Spain last week. We were so pleased with our stay that we asked the hotel to reserve rooms for us at the Hospes in Granada 6 days later. It was a nice, quite noisy, but not nearly as perfect expereince as the Palacio del Bailio.
Gorgeous old builing with very cool modern interiors. Super confortable rooms. Staff could not have been nicer. lovely breakfast too. Worth every penny.
This is going to be one of the most outstanding hotels of this region. Unfortunately during our stay in January there were still building works going on. Until now, only one wing of hotel rooms has opened. The spa is still under construction which was a pity as it will be unique with original roman baths integrated. While digging they also found the ruins of a roman house. In the future bar area you well be able to see these ruins through a floor out of glass. We booked a standart room for 180 euros. The furnishing is contemporary and tastefull with hints to the moorish history. While very modern, it is still functional. On the downside the size is beyond average for a 5 star hotel, the window openes to a mini-patio which means that beside of walls and the window of the room just about 2 m oposite of you you couldn't see anything,and there was an awful smell in the bathroom which even increased by turning on ventilation. Like in other Hospes Hotels the staff is multilingual, very professional and at the same time friendly and charming. Not stiff like in many other 5star hotels. We didn't have breakfast (euros 17 per person, not included) and also didn't eat at the restaurant, so cannot comment on these. The location is in old town, but in a very quiet part with no restaurants or shops nearby. Expect at least 15 min. walking time to the Mezquita and 10 min. to the main shopping area. The hotel is difficult to find by car and it is not (yet) signposted - fortunately we had a gps with us. The hotel staff took care of our car and drived it to a nearby garage (15 euros per night).
What a wonderful hotel! My wife and I enjoyed this place so much we were planning on only one night in Cordoba and decided to stay for a second... the hotel is a (incredibly) renovated family palace that is a combination of modern and classic...we are fans of "luxury" hotels and this was head and shoulders the best place we stayed in the south of spain. Intimate, yet not small; luxurious but not glitzy.
