The Experience

Hospes Palace del Bailío

The first and only five star hotel in Cordoba is located in the historical heart of the city of the caliphate, which was declared a Cultural Heritage site in 1982.

The hotel is a fully realized combination of culture, wellbeing, art, history, cuisine and relaxation. Guests partake of a vivid experience as they enjoy the flavours of the region at the Senzone Restaurant & Tapas Bar, relax in the impressive rare plant garden, have an aperitif overlooking the nearby ruins of a Roman villa, or at the Bodyna Spa, which provides access to the most remarkable ancient Roman spas in the city.

Built between the 16th and 18th centuries this traditional agrarian estate in Andalucia has been meticulously restored and finely balanced with contemporary design. Original detailing such as wrought-iron balcony railings, terracotta tiles, Moorish decorative elements and a lavishly painted ceiling have been artfully combined with understated modern touches at the Hospes Palacio del Bailio in Cordoba. Rich fabrics and textures in champagne and copper tones are offset by dark walnut wood and light polished marble floors throughout the interiors – solid slabs of black stone from Cordoba lead to the gardens outside, thus creating a stylistic bridge from the interior to the exterior.  

Hospes Palacio del Bailio is composed of several buildings arranged around a total of five patios. The main patio is also the most spectacular as the traditional paving has been replaced with a glass floor, revealing a dramatic perspective on the Roman ruins buried four and a half metres below. Restoring paintings and frescos from the 19th century is a further example of the care and attention given to the revitalization of past beauty at the Hospes Palacio del Bailío. The clean pure lines, the sense of history and luxury all reflect the peace and quiet you will enjoy at this Andalusian getaway.

In the historic heart of Córdoba, Hospes Palacio del Bailio is housed in a former palace dating back to the 16th century. Interiors mix Andalusian character with modern detailing: Eighteenth-century murals and freestanding tubs are accented with rich velvets blending with natural stone. Spend peaceful hours in the hotel’s Bodyna Spa, where you’ll find the entrance to Roman baths and treatment cabins opening onto a courtyard flanked by Roman columns. Sample perfect plates of fried anchovies, Iberian ham and beef carpaccio at the hotel’s Arbequina Restaurant & Tapas Bar. Sip aperitifs while overlooking the Roman villa.
