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.

We were told that Granada is a tourist friendly town and that Córdoba is not! Well, upon leaving the car park where we had to park the VW for two days, Chris got a taste of the unfriendly part of Granada. It's not the language that is the problem, it's the body language! We manage to get out of Granada in one piece although Emily our GPS is not recognizing the national A92 towards Córdoba. Perhaps it is new and Emily is getting a little long in the her one remaining tooth. ...
... The guide was informative about former Jewish designs and foods being masked and reworked even after the Jews were kicked out of Spain in 1492.
The synagogue was across the street so we went for a brief look. It is very small. A note in the house across the road noted there are only three working synagogues in Spain today [one here and the other two in Toledo], Whew! Nobody was checking for any entry fee so saved 0.3E; party time.

Sifting through our clothes and other belongings and figuring out what will go with us for the next 5-6 months was a challenge. It is AMAZING how much space your things take up when you start creating a pile of what you think is a minimum of clothes to bring, shoes, and other things needed for travel.
Imagine how tough it would be if you were given a large back pack and a day bag and told to pack for 6 months and everything had to fit ...

Hostal La Fuente turned out to be a beautifully adorned small hotel with a gorgeous courtyard of ornamental tiles and pot plants (oops: Americans, read 'potted plants’!).

From there we dined on tapas and beer before heading back to the artisan market. On the way we came upon the Gallery of the Inquisition which we could not resist. This was not quite what we expected and showed all the devices that were used by the Spanish Inquisition to torture those Jews and Muslims who were thought to have not really converted to Christianity as required. One has to wonder about the people ...
