“The Palacio del Bailio sits on a quiet street above Cordoba’s old town. The style overwhelms you from the start. You arrive at reception through an old carriage entrance, before passing through a set of patios, each more outstanding than the last. The historic premises and original features are offset by contemporary touches such as Philippe Starck-style baroque chandeliers and velvet sofas, which gives this hotel a very unique and special feel.”
Complimentary bottle of wine
Located in Cordoba’s UNESCO-listed historic quarter, Hospes Palacio del Bailio is a renovated 16th century palace set above crumbling Roman ruins. Arranged around five lush patios and a pretty outdoor pool, this luxury hotel combines restored frescoes and paintings with contemporary luxuries and exceptional regional cuisine.
The guestrooms and suites ooze sophistication, with handpainted stucco, elaborate frescoes, velvet headboards, and plush fabrics. With their spacious living area and en suite with freestanding tub and walk-in shower, the junior suites are very special.
The restaurant serves traditional Andalusian cuisine. For an extra-level experience, dine in the courtyard suspended over a transparent floor covering the remains of a Roman villa.
The highlights of Cordoba’s old town are within walking distance, including the 8th century mosque and cathedral. After a day’s adventuring, ease weary limbs with a dip in the Roman baths and Sublime D’or Experience signature treatment in the spa.
