On the slopes of the Sierra de Córdoba, on the site of Abd ar-Rahman I's 8th-century summer palace, this modern parador has sunny rooms and nice views. Rooms have wood or wicker furnishings, and the pricier ones have balconies overlooking the lush, peaceful garden or facing Córdoba. The restaurant serves typical local dishes including the chef's specialty, samorejo (thick tomato soup, served cold).

Large room with great views, but maintenance mediocre both in the rooms and gardens. Hotel is larger than most of the Paradors and seems impersonal. Meals were not as good as in the other Paradors. Located way out of town, but there is a convenient bus to the Plaza Colon which is not too far from the Mesquita and other attractions. Would stay somewhere in town if we were to visit again.

I wouldn't go out of my way to stay here, but this hotel is O.K.
