Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mezquita Córdoba
We followed the tripadvisor reviews and booked this hotel; we were so glad we did, and even got the amazing Room 10 with the cherubs frolicking on the ceiling. The staff were charming and mulit-lingual, the location ideal, and the building beautiful. Breakfast was nothing exciting (juice, coffee and croissant or roll) but at this price you couldn't expect anything more. Fantastic value all round and we would recommend it to anyone.
Lovely Hotel Mezquita
Just returned from a trip to Andalusia and our stay in Hotel Mezquita was one of the best. The entrance of the hotel is just 25 meters away from one of the entrances of the Mezquita. Make sure you get a room with windows on the outside and not on the patio which isn't a real patio anymore. Our room had a good bed although a bit too short for me. But hey, what's new in Spain?? Nice high ceiling and plenty of space for a good price! And very very friendly people
Simple nice stategically located
Clean hotel with good air conditioning and a nice bathroom. The staff spoke English and were nice. The hotel is located right next to the Mezquita itself. There are a number of good restaurants in the vicinity. I would stay there again.
Charming, but with a fatal flaw!
Charming and located directly across the street from the Mezquita and on the edge of the Jewish Quarter, we thought we had found a great hotel. The room was large and there were two french doors off the room. But, here was the catch...the doors opened onto the courtyard. The courtyard in Andulusian homes serves as a cooling devise in the summer and would have been delightful in the 85 degree heat, but the Mezquita has covered over their courtyard to turn it into a year-round breakfast room (nice), but creating an inversion layer of heat in the courtyard. The A/C was terrible, and the only windows were the french doors out into the inversion layer. Sleeping was stiffling at best. It was unseasonably warm this year in May, but the managment needs to be aware of its surroundings. The hotel has another dining room (breakfast comes with the room). They should uncover the courtyard and return it to it's original purpose and solve the whole problem (probably cut A/C costs as well) Despite it's charm and excellent location...I would not stay here in warm weather (i.e., tourist season).
Hotel Mezquita offers great value for money. Rooms were spacious/clean & staff friendly. The location is also excellent (opposite La Mezquita). One word of warning - the bedrooms with views of the Mosque can be v.noisy, especially on a Sat/Sun night as seems to be a prime spot for raucous Andalucian weddings!
Stayed there overnight in April 2004 and paid EUR 69 for 2 in double room overlooking the Mezquita. Clean, modern bathroom, excellent location.
This is a jewlbox of a hotel with lovely rooms. One of the most pleasant hotels I've stayed at in years. Absolutely tops for a small hotel. Would return without question.
Loved Hotel Mezquita
Great place, location and people. I stayed 4 nights and couldnt have been happier. The reception people are fantastic - very helpful and friendly. My room (15) was a little small, but I only paid 46 euros. As the name implies, the hotel is situated adjacent to La Mezquita.
Great position and value
Really great value for money. We stayed in room 10, the 'special' room - domed painted ceiling etc, very impressive, and only 66 Euros a night. Could have been warmer, as weather chilly, but otherwise well equipped. Breakfast basic, and not a very convivial breakfast room. Position couldn't be more convenient, and we managed to park at the hotel next door (Conquistador), but very glad we stayed at the Mezquita, as much friendlier and more intimate.
Very nice place
We spent three nights at this hotel in October. Very nice place, a good value and fantastic location.
Only compliant: no chair in the room.

... us before the visit. (Told you I wouldn't make that mistake twice!)
It was a short and very pleasant walk from our hotel to the Mezquita. We walked in the cool fresh air past cafes setting up for breakfast and saw several tourists who clearly had the same plan as us. I was a little nervous when we arrived as we saw several people get denied entry. It turned out it was just because they didn't have their shoulders covered and this is a ...
... come out first and then there's a giant...altar? Not sure what to call it that is carried around the city with 20 or so people underneath moving about a millimeter a minute. All in all it was definitely worth sticking around for but I was sure glad I had a seat.
We grabbed some drinks, wandered for food and quickly ate before heading back to make our 8:30 train. Two hours of naps and knitting later we were back in Madrid and ready for ...

I walked around, peering into windows mostly, but also hopping into a tent here and there to watch the locals dance and have a good time, or to watch a performance. Reminded me of the tango milonga night I had in Buenos Aires...

With the Reconquista and expulsion of the Moors, the fortress was converted into a palace for Christian monarchs--most notably the infamous Catholic power couple Ferdinand and Isabella. The grounds surrounding the palace were stunning. Cascading pools and fountains, perfectly manicured shrubbery, overflowing rose gardens and winding labyrinths set the stage for a beautiful mid-morning stroll under a cloudless sky. There wasn't much to ...

The Pope has denied requests to allow Muslim worship on the grounds that this has been a consecrated church for centuries and besides which, there was a church on the site before there was ever a mosque. Just to prove the point, a mosaic floor from what is said to be a 7th century church was uncovered beneath one of the archways and has recently undergone renovation! ...
