Hospes Palacio del Bailío

Córdoba, Spain

Deluxe room

Dreamer's room

A five-star Andalusian palace stay in Córdoba, with beautiful gardens, a spa and lavish interiors - includes breakfast, spa access and a treatment voucher

  • Roman ruins, citrus-filled gardens, and lashings of museum-worthy Tuscan and Moorish interiors set the scene at Hospes Palacio del Bailío, a 16th-century palace in the ancient Andalusian city of Córdoba. It's little wonder how this five-star abode has bagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and ranks among the city's top five stays on the site.

  • Avant-garde cuisine reveals itself at Arbequina, the hotel’s signature restaurant. Through the restaurant's glass floor, you'll be able to admire the remains of a Roman house from around the first century AD. Equally worthy of your attention is terrace pool bar for delicious tapas, made-to-order cocktails, premium liqueurs, craft beers, and a choice of fine Spanish and international wines.

  • Perfect for grabbing a little slice of me time, Bodyna Spa has two stunning spaces: a courtyard surrounded by Roman columns for massage and spa treatment cabins, and a lower floor for subterranean Roman baths.

Highlights

You’ll be staying in the heart of Córdoba, the ancient Andalusian city known as Spain’s gastronomic capital. Once you’ve gazed in awe the multi-arched Mezquita (or Mosque of Córdoba) that’s one of the world's greatest Islamic buildings, must-dos include visiting Palacio de Viana for its Renaissance gardens and fountains, exploring the streets around the Judería (Jewish Quarter), stopping for lunch at the tempting tapas bars, and marvelling at the blooms at Córdoba Botanical Garden.

Further city highlights include people-watching at Plaza de las Tendillas, photographing the Roman Bridge and Calahorra Tower, and taking a stroll along the popular Calleja de las Flores to see the gorgeous whitewashed houses embellished with hundreds of flowerpots.
