Light, elegance and simplicity dominate the personality of this city hotel. It is built in the ruins of the former summer palace and gardens of Abderraman I, home of the first palm trees in Europe. With an inviting swimming pool and an orange garden it is the perfect place to take a break. It features lush vegetation and a prevailing atmosphere of peace and tranquillity and offers guests plenty of space, with large bedrooms, lobby and lounges. The artificial lighting is low, as plenty of bright natural light streams in through the large windows, and the hotel is decorated in earth tones with wooden flooring and furniture, as well as some leather features. Warm tones unite the Arabic and the Andalusian in the bar and dining room, while functionality is the main feature of the conference rooms. The hotel comprises a total of 94 guest rooms spread over 5 floors. It is air-conditioned and offers a range of helpful amenities to guests including 24-hour reception, a hotel safe, a currency exchange facility, lift access, a café, a TV room, Internet access/ WLAN access point (charges apply), room service and a laundry service (charges apply). Parking is also provided for those arriving by car.
From the hill surrounded by vegetation on which the hotel is situated there are views beyond your wildest dreams out over the city below. At the foot of the Cordoba mountain range and 4ºC cooler than in the city, it is an ideal base from which to discover the city. An atmosphere of peace and well-being can be felt throughout, in part thanks to its gardens, which are best enjoyed at dusk, while watching as the ""city of the caliphs"" is gradually bathed in light. San Pablo Airport at Seville is around 130 km from the hotel, while Pablo Ruiz Picasso Airport at Malaga is approximately 225 km away.
