Cordoba, the capital of Andalucia, is an inspiring crossroads between the past and the present. A Roman colony granted independence, Cordoba was one of Spain's most important centers for Muslims and Jews before becoming a center of Christian power; today's Cordoba preserves this rich tapestry and offers countless rewards to the culturally curious.
At the center of it all, Hospes Palacio del Bailío’s 54 rooms and suites set across three buildings capture the essence of Cordoba’s past and present. The hacienda, built from the 16th to 18th centuries, stands atop Roman ruins, visible through a special glass floor in the dining room. Marble floors and light, contemporary decor contrast with the vaulted ceilings and frescoes to be found in some of the rooms. Picturesque courtyards scented with orange blossoms bring you to a pool offering welcome respite from the hot Andalucian summers.
The hotel’s Bodyna Spa - located in perfectly maintained and restored Roman Baths - offers a comprehensive selection of services and treatments. Delicious fresh, local cuisine is served in the Arbequina Restaurant while a tapas bar has more casual fare. With the famed Mesquita of Cordoba just a 15-minute walk away, Hospes Palacio del Bailio is an ideal choice.
Many of the 40 rooms and 14 suites exude exquisite luxury shown in velvet headboards, century old frescoes and hand painted stucco walls. The suites boast marble bathrooms with separate bathtub and shower. Every room has high speed internet, a plasma screen satellite TV and DVD player.
Hospes Palacio del Bailío welcomes children but is better suited to couples or older families.
The Arbequina restaurant offers a Mediterranean menu based on natural and nutritious products from Cordoba and the surrounding province. The more informal tapas bar serves a delicious and creative selection of tapas on the terrace. Other facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, relaxing Bodnya spa, sauna and steam room.
