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.

... seeing the synagogue then the Alcazar of the Christian kings. The alcazar is like a castle and has a beautiful view from the top. You can see all the gardens and fountains within the walls, the river and bridges, and the city. It seems the designers loved fountains and streets of water. It was a very peaceful place. The flower beds were full of colour ad the bushes and trees were cut to perfection. After that we walked along the river. Downstream of one of the bridges there was less ...
... we walked a bit further on to visit the Mezquita. This was another Moorish mosque from the days of Muslim power in Spain. As in Seville, when Christianity took over, the Muslims were forced out and a cathedral was plunked down in the middle of the mosque. I was thoroughly awed by the beauty of the Muslim portions. There are hundreds of arches and columns constructed of alternating red ...
... right next to the hotel. We ate in the Patio of the Oranges, and I must say it is a beautiful lunch spot. We even did it again the next day.
Then we went to see the Mezquita. Despite the crowds and tourist souvenir shops outside the building, inside it was dark and cool and calm and quiet. Not everything lives up to what you'd hope it would be, but the Mezquita was really nice. In fact, Cordoba is a nice town and I'd go back again.
Last night I went out and walked around Cordoba alone. I couldn't believe how warm it still was out. After a bit I went into a little restaurant and sat down next to a lovely fountain. It was so peaceful there (and cool). When I was nearly done, one of the other members of my program, Danielle, came in. She and I each ordered a glass on wine and we had a really nice time talking and getting to know one another better.
... together so I am always afraid to make any noise...but I am slowly getting over this. I share a bathroom with the other student that is living here. This leads to my housing situation. As my parents are well aware I was very upset and very unsure about whether or not I would be able to live with this arrangement for four months. My house mom is quite conservative, very Catholic, and she likes things done a certain way. Yolanda is 23, she is a medical student studying this year in ...
