Looking for a place to stay in Cordoba?
H10 Palacio Colomera is a 4 star hotel in the heart of the city that certainly ticks all the boxes – great location, beautiful interiors, comfortable rooms, great value for money and a spectacular roof terrace to enjoy a drink on hot summer nights!
Join me for a tour and take a peak inside!
The hotel is located on Plaza de la Tendillas, a spacious city square with fountains and cafes. I arrived with a train and the taxi journey to the hotel was only around 5 mins long.
The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring on foot – I was able to walk to the Mezequita, the river and even the Alcazar (all around 20mins walk).
It’s also very close to a variety of restaurants for dinner options or small cafe if you want to enjoy the breakfast in the sunshine.
The hotel building is pretty impressive from outside, but even more beautiful inside. The reception is somewhat hidden on the left side to the entrance which opens up to the central courtyard with dining area. This is where the breakfast is served also.
The warm tones of the wood contrasting beautifully with the greenery of the giant palm trees create a serene and calming atmosphere.

The entrance to the lift & rooms is on the right side, and if you pass all along the dining area you will arrive in another courtyard with the hotel pool.
It’s certainly not enough depth to swim in, but good enough to dip your feet and cool off in the summer.
I stayed in deluxe family room as we were travelling as a family of three.
The room had a super spacious double bed, an extra bed for a child, sofa, two TVs and plenty of space to run around.
The mini bar was fully stocked and fresh water in glass bottles (always appreciated) was provided every day. We even got a welcome treats in form of chocolates as I signed up to their club to get 10% off the stay.
I was super pleased about the Nespresso coffee machine and the spacious terrace that came with this room (more pics below).
It was decorated in neutral tones but felt very welcoming, with quality fabrics and very comfortable bed mattress.
The spacious bathroom was fitted with large walk in shower and one sink. Luxury bathrobes and crisp white towels were also provided.
The highlight of the room and reason why we picked this specific one was certainly the terrace.
Facing the pool on one end and the hallways on the other side, it had enough room to fit a full gorgeous garden set with an umbrella, with plenty of space spare.
The only downside was the fact that the room opposite had the same size terrace and the two were only divided by a small wall.
On the first night the room was unoccupied, but on second night we found ourselves sitting there in the evening with the neighbours listening to our conversation, as they sat on their terrace in complete silence sipping wine.
There wasn’t even enough visual separation between the two terraces so it creates an awkward atmosphere in what’s supposed to be your private spot to enjoy the evening.
Rooftop Bar & Terrace
Another reason why I picked this hotel was this roof terrace.
Offering gorgeous views down on the square and vista of the whole city, the terrace was decorated in the same style as the one in our room. As we came there for a drink, there was barely anyone around.
The drinks here were a bit on a pricey side, but that’s the price you normally pay for a view almost anywhere these days.
I was very happy with the hotel and the friendly service we received.
Top points – location, spacious room, room facilities, good value for money, friendly service, beautiful building & interior design.
Negatives – the only real disappointment was the fact that we paid extra for a room with a terrace which we couldn’t really enjoy in the evenings due to lack of privacy. I also found the breakfast to be really expensive, so ended up eating out in the local cafes instead.
