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.

... fascinating and very, very large. The mosque was the 3rd largest in the world, but it is now a cathedral. King Ferdinand, after he conquered the city, had a cathedral built in the middle of the mosque! It is very beautiful and interesting to see.

So far so good on the trip. It reminds me, Dutchie, of our Intrepid trip in eastern Europe where the guide takes you to places, does some touring and orientation with you and you otherwise do your own thing for the balance of the time.
Hasn't been alot of slagging so far as one can keep rather distant from most of the group. That dynamic may change over the next two nights as we head for a town of 8,000 souls.
... Colon is a public park and well used. From there we walked back across Centro to a ribbon park where the Mercado Victoria is, as it had been recommended. We got some great seafood tastes for lunch. The hardest thing was choosing ... settled on prawns and some designer tapas and a beer. We sat in shade outside the pavilion in which forty or more snack providers (butchers with grills, oyster sellers, ...
... being a Monday the Necropolis was not open, but we knew this before going there. It was a nice town to visit. Easy to find parking that was free, easy to find the Tourist Information Centre that was signposted and a pleasant walk around the old town, the buildings of which are mainly painted white. A lot of the sites had been plundered during the various wars and uprisings but some had been rebuilt over the years.
... where even though you were sitting inside, it felt like you were sitting in a courtyard. Once again, the Tapa's weren't great (we didnt seem to have much luck foodwise!!) but it was ok as the Sangria was PERFECT!! - As you can tell.. we pretty much lived on a Sangria diet while in Spain!!!
On Thursday, we went to check out the Alcazar de los Reyes.. I believe its an old fortress and housed within it are some of the most amazing gardens I ...
