Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Conquistador

Disappointing but good location

from Granada28
The Conquistador is in a good location, right opposite the Mezquita, and offers it's own parking garage underground, but that's all I can say for it. The first room we were offered had food bits on the floor, accompanied by a large line of ants. The second room had a very weak air conditioner, when it was 105 degrees outside, and had separate twin beds and not a double, as requested. The decor is simple, borderline shabby even, and in desperate need of renovation. However, since it was only a one night stay we let it go. The breakfast was okay but nothing to write home about. The coffee was awful and I remember this because the coffee everywhere else in spain was incredible. In this hotel it was watered down and stale.
The hotel staff was very nice and polite. As we were leaving, we noticed that the sign next to the front door indicated a 4 star establishment. Don't be fooled by this. this is a 2 star hotel, at best.

Great location. Great value. Great Room. Recommended!

from A TripAdvisor Member
From the outset let me state that this is a fine hotel. It would be hard to find great fault with it, though of course Ill do my best ...

I had 3 nights here and found it most comfortable. I was reluctant to leave, and indeed found myself somewhat reluctant to leave the comfort of the hotel at all during my stay. My room was located on the second floor. Due to the reviews I had read, I had requested a non-street facing room, and the staff obliged with one that faced onto a tiny inner courtyard, so there was not much of a view I'm afraid. It was a twin with decent facilities; AC, phones, mini-bar, safe, TV. The mini-bar was not fully stocked, and the TV was a bit battered but effective. The room and bathroom (also very acceptable with great water pressure) appeared clean. The walls were a little bit thin. I could make out the talking of my neighbours, and could certainly hear the less thoughtful residents (principally middle-aged Americans I might add) who each night arrived on the landing after 1 and boomed at each other in their everyday, regardless manner. The cleaning staff do also make a bit of racket on the marble in the morning. Oh, and I did notice a bit of a 'funk' each time I entered the room, though I think this was probably due to the fact that it was a smoking room, and I did become accustomed to it within minutes each time.

Location wise it couldn't have been much better, with the hotel facing right onto one side of the Mesquita. I will say this in case its of use; the area is spectacularly touristy. Unlike the other places I have been in Spain, there is no semblance of real life in the old town area. Apart from the generally tacky feel, the significance of this, I found, was that the streets are lined with those useless shops that idiot tourists somehow keep in business (plastic flamenco dancers, cheap leather, clothes that couldn't even be worn as a joke ...). You will find ten of these in a row, but not a single useful mini-mart type shop where you can buy toiletries, food, and the like, which I found utterly bizarre (it seems to me that there's a real business opportunity there for a wiley Cordoban!). So make sure you get anything you need when you're in the real town, and don't expect to be able to pick it up near the hotel.

The staff were nice, though I did feel increasingly like I was imposing upon them as the days wore on - me having no more that a few words of Spanish, and the hotel being very busy. I did find it difficult to get service from the restaurant and bar. As has been my experience with Spanish hotels, I found it very hard to get breakfast ... the first morning my request was not gathered from my door, the second morning I did get it (and it was very nice, though it was small by most standards), and the third day I was not supplied with a thingy to hang on the door, so the kind chap at reception took my order, but it failed to materialise.

The hotel restaurant was okay, though not spectacular. The cafeteria (which I accessed via room service) dealt acceptable food, though again nothing marvellous.

What I found especially nice was the little courtyard where you can eat your meals or just generally loll about it. Its small, but its a lovely little spot to sit and sip your wine and read your book in the sun with the pleasant bubble of the fountains and the birds obliging with their chirps. Its a real asset to the hotel.

What else? ... There is free wireless internet access, but if you don't have a laptop with a wireless connection you'll have to pay the somewhat extortionate prices (E3 for 30 mins, E5 for an hour) for the one PC in the lobby, which is unpleasantly exposed, and annoyingly restricted with kiosk software.

I cant think of anything else, except to say that on the whole this was a very pleasant place to stay ... far nicer than the 4* I stayed at in Barcelona and a third of the price (E50 per night)! If I were ever to return to Cordoba, I wouldn't think twice about booking this place. I thoroughly recommend it.

The Conquistador is great.

from MikeEgan
The location is great - right opposite the Mesquita - the rooms are comfortable, the staff are friendly, and the little courtyard in the centre is an oasis of calm and quiet. Don't forget to check out the Roman excavations under a glass floor in the convention area.

Pretty nice

from none00
This was a nice hotel. Room/bathroom were large & nice. Delicious breakfast (not included) was quite varied with Spanish dishes. Staff spoke excellent English. My room faced the courtyard.

Location couldn't be better - right next to the Mosque.

However, I couldn't adjust air conditioning so it was either full blast or nothing. It seemed the controller was broken.

a dissapointment

from claraf
We stayed at this hotel mid July for 2 nights. Compared to the standards of other 4* hotels around Andalusia this was much more a basic 3*. The first room we were offered was tiny, dinghy & dark, smaller than you would expect in London. The second was little larger but better laid out. Generally the hotel is quite dated and in need of a major refurbishment. The rooms show much wear and tear and are cheaply furnished, the mattresses were certainly in need of renewal!!! There is little or no soundproofing and not only could we hear everything from the room next door but also up and down the hallways. Of course a main plus for this hotel is the location however there are many other options as convenient and are possibly much better value for money. We shopped around extensively on the net for the best deals and stayed 4* all the way around Andalusia, not paying more than 60 euros per night. Actually this was the only hotel we paid more than 55 euros and was by far our least favourite (all others were wonderful, Hesperia Granada, La Reina Alcazar Carmona Seville, Fuerte Grazalema, Finca Eslava Antequera). Rumbo is a brilliant spanish website that offers great discounts as do many of the hotel group webites (etc NH Hotels, Fuerte hotels, Sol Melia hotels etc). I certainly wish I'd shopped around a little more when looking for somewhere to stay in Cordoba and taken a little more notice of the other reviews on this website and chosen to stay elsewhere.

nice enough, great staff, noisy halls

from rsdNyc
we were disappointed with the rooms, a bit too much formica for my taste, but clean, were there in january, overlooked the garden, so it was quiet, i imagine that's nice in the summer. breakfast was great, and the staff made up for the disappointment in room, very helpful. no gym, unfortunately. halls very noisy -- hard surfaces, no carpet, very loud doors, so when the weekend came, it was bad news, lots of loud people waking you up at the crack of dawn, i'd recommend they carpet the halls. good location.

Very good value!!!

from liznotrump
Great location, very nice spacious room and bathroom. Had the buffet breakfast - very tasty and good value. Loved that I could park so conveniently. Service excellent, very helpful. Would highly recommend.

Good value in unbeatable location

from toolworker
Any serviceable hotel across the street from the Mezquita would be a find. This one is a couple of notches better. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet (the staff recommended against a Mezquita view because of the street noise). The staff was friendly. Parking next door was convenient. We felt it a good value and would return. The only negative was the poor breakfast.

Terrible

from NanWaugh
Our room was so tiny as to be a joke!!! We had a double bed, with so little room around it as to be unable to walk around it. THAT WAS THE ENTIRE ROOM. I kid you not. To get into the right side of the bed, you had to crawl in from the left. Our one window overlooked a concrete courtyard that echoed noise. The room looked tired, and the bed sagged. I felt like a poor, traveling student again...

We politely asked for another room; the staff seemed uninterested in accommodating us.

The bathroom was quite a contrast, being quite glamorous, spacious and done in marble. Needless to say, I spent most of our stay here in the bathroom strictly for the ambiance :)

Sounds like from the other reviews here, you are are really rolling the dice on what you will end up with for a room....not cheap for a gamble....

Very busy

from sufenta
We stayed in this hotel for a night, this was our fourth hotel in the region. It is an interesting mix. It is centrally located and is big and busy (we favored smaller and less "cosmopolitan" hotels) but retains some of the "charm" of the area you are visiting, with a central courtyard and a fountain. Room was large (actually, the largest of the whole trip for us....) clean and service very professional. Again, big and busy all the time. Price/value ratio was appropriate. Would stay there again, among other things, the garage in such a central location is a plus. Keep in mind, however, around the Mezquita there are at least three other hotels, so it is not the only one (Maimonides and others I do not remember now).

Top Local Tips for Cordoba

Medinat al-Zahra About 8km from Cordoba, this is a must see. This used to be the location of a big muslim city which comtrolled al the administration of muslim spain. It is still being excavated by archaeologists now and it's size is vast and unexpected. Very interesting.

1 hour is enough for Mezquita, Palacio Viana is great Mezquita is Ok. Nothing like Alhambra. Palcio Viana is surprisingly interesting but a 20 min. walk. Singogia, Alcazar & Medina close on Sat. afternoon and are closed on Sunday. Plan your dates carefully. A no. of restaurants around Mezquita are pricy tourist traps. Try side streets for great unassuming places such as Ole Kebab or venture out of tourist area to where locals eat such as Confucio

Medina Azahara Though some guide-books downplay this location, I think it's a must-see. A few miles outside teh city, so need transportation. A guide is very helpful.
