Kimkim's Take

Balcón de Córdoba Hotel (which translates to "the balcony of Córdoba") offers a look at a traditional 17th-century Andalusian house, complete with a rooftop terrace that lives up to its name. The owners appreciate archeology and have over 100 relics on display throughout the hotel.


Tucked in the winding streets of the Jewish Quarter, the hotel is within easy walking distance of all the sites of the city. You'll be less than one block from the Mezquita-Catedral and its Patio de los Naranjos, filled with orange trees. A five-minute walk takes you to the Puerta del Puente leading to the old Roman bridge, and another five minutes passing the Alcázar as you make your way to the old Synagogue.

Rooms & Bathrooms

Much like all of Andalusia, Córdoba can get very hot throughout the year. Luckily, the rooms at Balcón de Córdoba provide a calm reprieve with bright and airy spaces featuring neutral tones—you can't help but feel at ease in these plushy quarters. The rooms feature names of Roman and Greek goddesses and unique international words that represent the decor. Bathrooms fit the bill, with bright and modern conveniences.

Other Highlights

Since the building combines two old houses, you'll find several common spaces to enjoy, including two inner courtyard patios and, of course, the incredible rooftop terrace. Enjoy some of the best views of the Mezquita-Catedral while sipping a tinto de verano or coffee. You can also enjoy dinner from the rooftop or opt for a table in the leafy courtyard downstairs.
