Balcon de Cordoba is an intimate boutique hotel occupying a 17th century Andalusian house in the historic center of Cordoba. The hotel is brimming with history and charm, looking like “a fascinating melting pot where classical, Islamic and Castilian patterns mingle with traces of Flemish and other European influences”. The eclectic style of the hotel is in harmony with the dramatic history of the city and it is firmly rooted in Spanish medieval housing concepts “where life was always inner-focused, preserved from indiscreet glances by thick walls and delicate latticework, and open to the intimacy of corridors and courtyards.”
Behind the classic façade, three beautifully inner courtyards filled with light and domestic peacefulness and paved with chino cordobes (small black and white stepping stones forming geometric and figures are completing the cozy interior along with murmuring fountains and an impressive collection of local archeological artifacts scattered throughout. Balcon de Cordoba features ten rooms distributed in on two floors, ensuring a relaxed, secluded, refreshing atmosphere, far from the rattle of the streets. From the tower of the house or from the numerous balconies and main upper terrace guests can enjoy splendid views over the historical skyline of Cordoba and the surrounding sierras as well.
