Hotel Azahara, Cordoba, Spain
Posted Jun 18, 2012
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we were given was on the road side and noisy but the following day we were able to move to a room on the other side of the hotel, and this room had a double bed and a single bed. We were impressed with the nicely laid out towels with free sweets placed on. The day after we arrived it was my birthday.We had breakfast in the hotel dining room (reasonable at 4.50€ each), and I mentioned that it was my birthday. After I had eaten I was given a plate on which was a flan with a lit candle in it, and some prepared fruit pieces. It was a lovely surprise and very kind. Unfortunately, I had already eaten enough and was not permitted to take my fruit out of the dining room so I did not eat any of it and we thought it was a waste. We realise that it is hotel policy that guests cannot take food out of the dining room but thought it was a bit mean as it had been prepared especially for me as a birthday treat. We thought the showers (they were the same in each room we used) were fitted in a silly position - on the wall, half way along the bath, so there was very little room to stand under and on one occasion the water spilt out over onto the floor. We would, however, use the hotel again.
