Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Eurostars Maimonides Córdoba
Great place to stay in Cordoba.
We stayed in this hotel for one night. And only because we stayed here we could see the Mezquita or teh Mosque/Cathedral of Cordoba. The mosque is litterally accross the street, less than 10 yds away from the hotel door. The price is right. The rooms are very comfortable and BIG! with big beds and sat T.V and what not. Yes! the A/C was not working properly and when we tried to have the windows open it was too noisy outside with garbage trucks and birds and etc. However, everything said and done, this hotel deserves the "best in Cordoba" rating. I will go back there any day.
This hotel is excellent value. Rooms clean but basic. I would agree about the air conditioning struggling as we were there when it was very hot - 44 at one point. Great location. Staff very efficient and friendly, I would recommend this to anyone visiting Cordoba.
Great Location, But Be Careful If It's Hot
The fantastic thing about this hotel is the location...just across the street form the Mezquita. Also, the buffet breakfast is among the best I've seen anywhere in Spain (Paradores included), and I've lived here for more than 25 yrs.
However, we were there just last week when the temps. in Córdoba were close to 112 degrees, and the A.C. was definitely lacking. We had to change rooms three times before we finally got lucky and had fully functional air.
In the morning, we had to walk through a huge puddle to get to the bathroom. There was water pouring out of the Air conditioning unit in the ceiling. Not pleasant.
The room are basic, but comfortable. The mini-bar prices are decent. Important because the wonderful bar in the patio downstairs doesn't exist anymore as far as we could see.
Another warning. If you arrive by car, get really good directions. We drove around for an hour, and were only able to find the hotel when a very kind local led us there. I don't know what you'd do if you spoke no Spanish. It is NOT well marked.
Would I stay there again? Yes...there IS free parking, which is a big plus. It's clean. The price is right. Not a five star hotel, but for a couple of nights, it's fine.
This hotel is perfectly situated directly opposite the Mesquita, Cordoba's main attraction. The staff are friendly and the rooms are very comfortable with all mod cons. Definitely recommended for a stay in Cordoba!
Hotel Maimonides is an excellent 3-star hotel with nice rooms, big bathroom. It has the advantage of underground parking and the price is included in the room.
Good breakfast. Beautiful hotel, lovely patio. Definitely advisable.
Very lovely hotel
Our room opened up into a beautiful inner courtyard. The decor of the room, courtyard and the whole hotel was just beautiful, with some Moorish influence. The room was very spacious, hot water excellent and breakfast was plenty. Highly recommended, especially because the Mezquita is literally directly opposite. Also, this hotel has basement parking. Very good!
For our first ever trip to Spain, my wife & I found the Maimonides to be a good start. The rooms are clean & comfortable although the walls are on the thin side-- we could hear the maids heels clikcing on the stone tile floors of the hallways outside! The staff was very helpful and if not fluent in English, they certainly knew enough. The real reason, however, to stay heare is for convenience to the Mosque, which you can literally enter by crossing the street. Also, plenty of good tapas bars & restaurants very near by. The area is a tad bit "touristy", but we found the more "genuine" areas of Cordoba to be within easy walking distance.
Great location, worth the price
This hotel has the best location if plan on visiting the mosque which is right across the street. You can also walk around the town center where you´ll find shops, bars, restautants, shows, etc. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable which justifies the price.
Loved the Hotel but wouldn't stay again in Cordoba!
The hotel is extremely well located, immediately across from the mosque and at the heart of the "tourist" area. It is very lovely and has enclosed parking which is not too expensive. I would highly recommend this hotel although I wouldn't recommend staying overnight in Cordoba as we found it to be very quiet, with eating hidden away in scattered restaurants. It was the opposite of the other Spanish cities we visited.
It cost about £50 or $75 per night. Rooms were large, clean and nicely furnished. The reception and lounge areas were distinctly Moorish. Can't remember the food in the hotel but food in the city was fine. You can also park the car under the hotel. Cordoba is easy to drive round unlike Seville and Granada which are challenging.
But the hotel was 20 yards/metres from the Mesquite which is world class gorgeous and worth revisiting on a daily basis a la Grand Central Station and the Globe. The city of Cordoba is quiet, lovely and again Moorish. Very spiritual in an other worldly sense (Catholic, Islam, Jewish).
Food in the city was fine.

... for the following morning's trip down to Cordoba. That 'short' nap turned into the sleep that never ended! We slept until about 3 or 4 a.m., at which time, we were wide awake while the rest of the city was in lala land.
The time difference from Denver to Spain is 8 hours, so our jet lag was to be expected because while we would otherwise be sleeping, we were now awake, and vice versa.
That first morning in Madrid, we hopped onto an early morning ...

If you intend to visit outside of these hours you will need to pay 7 euros. We of course on a budget took the 'free' option and woke up a little earlier to visit this unique structure.

It was a pretty cool experience, and I definitely enjoyed relaxing after having walked around all day. I am hoping that soon we will be able to find the functioning baths in Granada so that we can take advantage of that more often!

The two and a half hour bus ride to Cordoba was uneventful. We arrived about 15 minutes late but didn't mind since we aren't in any hurry today. We bought tickets for our next bus journey in two days' time, then headed to our hotel. Mom, dad and Keenan took a taxi but we two decided to walk in the fabulous ...
