Getting lost in historical city centre, with the most traditional leather and jewellery shops, is an experience that takes you back in time, but all roads lead to the same spot: the spectacular Mosque-Cathedral, which as its name indicates was the most important temple of two different kingdoms.
During your time in the city, you will also enjoy magical spots like the Calleja de las Flores, Casa Andalusí and the Synagogue, as well as an endless number of bars where you can have a fresh beverage and a tapa of the best Cordoba-style salmorejo.
This crossroads located along the banks of the Guadalquivir River and in the shadow of the Sierra Morena has given rise to a city that smells of flowers and the mix of cultures.
Eurostars Azahar hotel condenses the essence of the city in unique and exceptional accommodation that stands out for the elegance of its facilities and its premium services. It’s also the perfect accommodation from which to discover Cordoba, as it’s located in the commercial area, next to the city council and the Roman temple, in the network of alleys that make up the heart of the city.
Orange blossom inspires the details of the hotel’s 45 rooms, with its characteristic white and with reddish touches that are inspired on horseshoe arches, which can be admired in many of Cordoba’s monuments.
These rooms are full of light and colour and also offer a wide range of services that are complemented by the sauna, Turkish baths, massage rooms and the hotel’s spacious gym.
We can boast that we have the most famous neighbour in Córdoba, the mosque, acclaimed the world over as one of humanity?s greatest works of art. In fact, we are so close to the mosque that we even have a small part of it in our hotel. In the Almanzor Room you can see Mozarabic ruins from the 15th century, which are actually one of the three ablution pavilions belonging to the cathedral of Córdoba. These ruins are protected by the regional government of Andalusia?s Culture Council.
Near the ruins, the jewel that enchants all our guests is the Andalusian courtyard, which the entire layout of the Eurostars Conquistador wraps around. The courtyard is a source of life and charm, ideal for hosting soirées and dinners. In fine weather, breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the courtyard.
El Eurostars Maimonides Hotel invites you to take yourself back in time; in the very heart of the Jewish Quarter and with spectacular close-up views of the Mezquita, your senses will transport you to the days of the Caliphate and the great Maimonides, when Cordova, with over half-a-million keen inhabitants was the most advanced city of Europe. Art, culture, commerce and the financial capacity of Cordova irradiated light and progress over a continent that looked up to the grand capital of the Guadalquivir river with amazement and veneration.
It is precisely this spirit of Cordova that we want to instil in you during your stay in the Eurostars Maimonides Hotel, a spacious establishment in modern style with typical touches of Andalusian and Mudejar art giving it atmosphere, planned around a courtyard with its aromas and fountain that you cannot help but delight in. A courtyard coloured with the multi-hued geraniums dangling from the ornately barred windows and perfumed with the fragrances emanating from the jasmine and orange blossom.
Our main advantage lies in being less than one hundred metres from the great Mezquita of Cordova. You will almost feel like touching history when you look out of the window of your room and contemplate such a close up view of the second largest mosque in the world.
Moreover, the Eurostars Maimonides is the ideal location for visiting the city's most important tourist sites, such as the alleyways of the Jewish Quarter (La Judería - a Human Heritage site), the Synagogue, the Arab baths, the Roman Bridge, the Julio Romero de Torres Portrait Museum and the Calahorra Tower, where an interesting museum is to be found, dedicated to the three great cultures underlying the city history.
In addition, we are less than a hundred metres from the Congress centre and surrounded by the best restaurants. At the hotel restaurant you will be able to enjoy the best local cuisine, with typical dishes like the 'salmorejo' or the 'flamenquín'.
Luxury. Avant-garde. Design. Supreme quality. These are the features of a five-star hotel that characterises a city. A city with a thousand-year-old history, which looks to the future with new trends and contributions.
Eurostars Palace has 162 rooms distributed over six floors. Equipped with every luxury, these rooms offer meticulous, state-of-the-art design and panoramic views over the city. The hotel also has 8 meeting rooms with various capacities and a large banquet and events hall, with space for up to 350 people.
The luxuries that our customers value most highly are the size and quality of the beds, the design of the bathrooms and the fantastic swimming pool and solarium on the roof, with splendid panoramic views over the city, the Guadalquivir river and the Sierra Morena mountain range. The hotel also has a complete gym, café-bar and a restaurant that combines traditional recipes with modern cuisine.
The unique Eurostars Palace building, constructed in 2008, is the work of architects Fernández Trapa de Isasi and Alfonso Casares Ávila. Its eye-catching, curved façade is made of perforated iron, which allows for very bright bedrooms and common areas. The interior design touches on every last detail of the building interior.
If there is anything that characterises the city of Cordoba is its integrating spirit. For centuries it has been taking in with hospitality everyone that knocked on its door and has known how to integrate in its culture the best of every guest. Christians, Muslims, Jews, etc. all of them left their mark and knew to appreciate the charm of a magical city. In the 10th century it had half a million inhabitants and it was considered the largest, most cultured and opulent capital in the world.
As a consequence, time has made Cordoba an authentic melting pot of cultures. It is an example of tolerance among civilizations and a cultural global referent.
Eurostars Patios de Córdoba was born with the same integrating spirit. It is an elegant establishment that traces back the history of the city from the Romans, through the Muslim Caliphate and the Christian and Jewish influences, to our days.
This integrating character is also present on the architecture and the interior design of the hotel, as it combines classic style with avant-garde, with an Andalusian spirit touch. The best proofs of this cultural melting pot are the archaeological remains found on the terrains where our hotel was built. We maintain and protect in its inside Roman tombs, a well, hydraulic fountains, an Almohade wall and even an Caliphal cistern are among the remains of ancient civilisations.
Eurostars Patios de Córdoba is located in the city centre. It has 64 rooms, among which them, 2 are adapted for people with reduced mobility, a meeting room and all services you might need to guarantee your maximum comfort. If you are wondering why the hotel has this name you only need to go into any of its five beautiful Andalusian patios the building hides. Their beauty will captivate you.
Guests can imbue Cordoban culture and history without moving from the hotel. The establishment honours some of the distinguished people that contributed to enhance the fame and the good name of the city. Therefore, the thoughts of Seneca, the verses of Góngora, the conquering of Abderraman III, the lines of Julio Romero de Torres or even the manoletinas of the Manolete the great bullfighter, that invade all spaces of Eurostars Patios de Córdoba.
The hotel also honours the festivity of Patios de Córdoba, which is celebrated every year in May and since 2012 is part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. The festivity promotes the value of the patio as an intercultural meeting point and as a way of life based on the establishment of strong social bonds among neighbours.
