Hospes Palacio del Bailio: A Cordoba Treasure





Hospes Palacio del Bailío is the first-five star Hotel in Cordoba, located in the heart of the ancient city of Cordoba, with The Mezquita, Alcázar palace and Jewish quarter all within walking distance. Set in a former 16th-century Spanish palace over the ruins of a first century Roman house, the hotel was declared a Cultural Heritage Monument in 1982. The current owners took great care to preserve the property’s vibrancy by maintaining its unique character and original detailing. Restored paintings and frescoes from the 19th century line the walls. Andalucian-style courtyards adorned with flowers, fruit trees and aromatic plants are framed by grand Moorish gates. Guest rooms are modern and luxurious inspired by Andalusia's character, detailed with dark walnut, polished marble and copper-and-champagne-toned textiles, that produce a sumptuous setting of historic and design perfection. Hospes Palacio del Bailío is alive with art — even the fragrant air seems full of grandeur as one breezes through the hotel’s marble corridors and orange-grove gardens.
