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.

... some continental European behaviour.
The Boys [John, Keith and I] plus Emma [daughter of the Beast] sat together. I culled my pix from the day before and then had my sandwich. Agricultural lands seemed to make up most of the views over the 1H 20M. Elaine gave lots of information on Cordoba, on several occasions noting entry to 'x' or 'y' is free to European Union member citizens ie poor Terry would have to pay; one of them was 0.30E which would be a ...
... Tiled, ornamented in filigree latticing inside, so Arab, outside a clock tower and structure like churches in the city. Caught the train from there to Madrid Attocha and, with some luck, found the departure point for the Cordoba train.
The Cordoba train was a rapid train that averaged 250 km and in our section had black leather seats and hostesses. The country zooming past shifted from the open cropping lands of Castille La Mancha to the hillier, treed grazing country ...
... getting completely and utterly lost and thankfully ending up in the Piazza where we'd started.
A good night's sleep disturbed only by traffic, the dawn chorus, a brace of helicopters joy-riding over our head and various "snorers" nearby had us ready to resume. As we needed to get away fairly promptly for our next venture, I said that instead of wasting time catching the bus in and out, I'd drive in. So we asked ...

I then continued up to the Plaza de las Tendillas, which is kind of the main square of Cordoba, and is surrounded by streets full of shops and restaurants. I wandered around for awhile but didn't find anything. It was now ...
... not even remotely enjoyable to take walking tours in this kind of heat. By the way it's not just me complaining Cordoba has the highest summer average daily temperatures in Europe. But of course a walking tour of historic Cordoba what we did.
The bus couldn't enter the historic district so we walked across the bridge over the Guadalquivir river, which by the way we have followed ...
