Hospes Palacio del Bailio
Ranked #4 of 65 Hotels in Cordoba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2012

Let me begin with recommending Cordoba as a definite inclusion in any tourist's Spain itinerary. This quaint city with its cobbled streets was my personal favourite of all the 9 cities we visited in Spain. What added to the experience was our stay at the Hospes Palacio. ...elegant and modern yet effective in showcasing it's history.
We were told the hotel was a converted roman governor's house.The Roman ruins under the main restaurant are beautiful, and surely make for a unique experience at any hotel.
The roman baths were another outstanding feature and the hotel staff was very accommodating in booking the whole area for our family.
The rooms are done up beautifully, and the property has a lot of character.
As some of the reviewers have stated earlier, we did have some problems with some staff: such as when we were waiting for pool towels, and the best that the staff there could do was fold some used towels and hand it to us !
On the flip side, we also encountered some of the best and most thoughtful staff that we have met anywhere, such as Joey. The stories he told my children, and the importance he gave them made them his fans... they all had photo ops with him before we left and still talk about him till now. Thanks a lot Joey!
Overall,the minor hiccups did not take away much from our experience at this hotel, and we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This hotel isn't listed as a Parador, but it should be. A modest 16th century palace that has been transformed into an elegant hotel, fusing old spanish grace with modern style and form.

Our room, on the ground floor next to the courtyard and pool, was spacious with incredibly high ceilings and a quaint windows with solid wooden shutters. The bathroom was all mod cons, spa bath, separate shower and a toilet and bidet area enclosed by an opaque glass door.

There were no bedside lamps, and the down lights were so bright it made reading in bed fairly uncomfortable. I made the hotel aware of this and bedside lamps where provided for the second night (though one lamp had a daylight globe and the other a warm white one, small things a hotel of this calibre should notice!)

Although the pool is small, it is perfect for the courtyard and there are comfortable lounges on which to relax. On the other side of the courtyard there is an outside dining area, with tables set in private nooks amongst the manicured garden which features fruit trees. The salad's we chose from the modest menu were wonderful, the sangria they serve is in a class of it's own.

I didn't eat in the restaurant, which is in an enclosed courtyard, but the breakfast buffet looked inviting.

The staff are friendly, speak great english and very helpful.

The design of this hotel is striking marrying modernity in furnishings and in room technology with the historic aspect of Cordoba. From the picturesque courtyard of the hotel, and the helpful and friendly staff of the front desk, we were given the tour of the facility. The women in our group checked into the hotel SPA for a date with manicures pedicures, facials, and massages, whilst the men checked into the lavishly furnished rooms and went directly to the laid back hotel pool.
Everything about the stay was extremely comfortable, and this hotel gave us reason to extend our stay, however and after checking with the front desk, we were told that the hotel was fully booked and no additional nights were available.

Definitely go there if you need a well deserved vacation retreat, and pamper yourself to a massage in the SPA.

On our trip through Southern Spain we chose this hotel in Cordoba because the hotel is built on old roman remains.
Upon arrival, we got welcomed by the hotel staff and we were told to leave all our luggage in the car, because they would park our car and take out our luggage.
We got shown around the hotel, and I realized that this hotel might be one of the most beautiful I've ever seen.
The rooms are quit big and the bathroom is like a palace, enormous and clean, after unpacking our luggage we decided to go for a swim, which was a good choice because the Palacio del Bailio owns a pretty big pool.
Cordoba was really hot in the second week of August, temparatures went up to 44 degrees Celsius.
The breakfast was great, good service and even better food.

So I'd recommend everyone who is going to be staying in Cordoba, to stay in the Hosper Palacio del Bailio!

A lovely hotel with welcoming staff though beware the suggestion of a sangria they serve the deluxe version without checking which is good but very steep at€10 per glass
Apart from that small annoyance a good stay
Check out the roman ruins in their basement...

Dear guest,

Thank you for your comments and suggestions.
Indeed, the Palacio del Bailio was built between the 16th and 18th centuries on the ruins of a Roman house. From de Reception, we organize daily visit to the archaeological area, giving the opportunity to our guest to discover the beautiful mosaic floor and antique architecture found into the Villa Romana.
