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.

... in Cordoba.
The Mezquita is the greatest of what Cordoba can offer to tourists. You can visit the Mezquita for free on workdays from 8:30 to 9:15 The museum in the Calahorra tower is quite inspiring to get a glimpse into what the peaceful coexistence of religions meant. Pity that this found its end some 200 years later - like so many good things.
... took 90 minutes.
We arrived at the train station in Cordoba and walked (about 20 minutes) to the
Cathedral. We saw the old Roman city wall. Inside the wall was the old city center. We passed through a Roman gate into another world of old cobble stone streets, tapas bars, Arab style tea houses all leading to the river and the Cathedral.
We entered the Cathedral (8.00 Euros pp) ...
... The hotel provide very clear instructions on their website on how to get there and we had no problems.
Not sure why it is 2 star as it is newly renovated, is air conditioned and our room is large and comfortable. Onsite parking is for only 4 cars and we had booked one of these spaces. They do not have a kitchen however, so breakfast cannot be provided. We normally do not have breakfast in the hotels so this is ...
Yay fall break! Well with ten free days what better place to go than Spain? Margot and I decided to go to Cordoba and Barcelona to stay with her former au pere´s. Of course, with every travel (especially when it´s Margot and I together) there is ALWAYS an adventure.
7:50pm (the day after the France train strike mind you) we have our packed "picnic" dinners in hand that our thoughtful host mom´s made us and we wave goodbye at the train station. Little did we know we ...
... about the size of a dorm room, but I had my own nice bathroom and all. Still plenty of room for one person, with privacy.
After getting everything settled, I headed out to the streets of Cordoba. The city is divided into two main parts: the more modern northern half where the train station was, and the historical old Jewish quarter, where my hostel was. Since I know what a normal Spanish city looks like, I decided to invest most of my time in ...
