The hotel is well located: 10-15 min by walk from the old city center. Our room was ok for one night. It's small but confortable bed. Cheap as well. Professional receptionist as well.
Perfect for one or two nights if you are travelling on a budget.
The weak link in our holiday travel. The hotel is in need of a makeover, bedroom furniture sparse & in need of replacement. Reception staff surly when we arrived and seemed to speak only Spanish. In the morning when we left there seemed to be a family gathering complete with baby behind the counter with little or no attention being paid to departing guests.
I wouldn't return to the Hotel Mariano as it is badly in need of a major refurbishment. The rooms looked bashed about with paint work scraped and scratched. Beds uncomfortable and bedding looked passed it's best. We had to have a room change as the air-conditioning leaked so badly it soaked the bed beneath it. Opening the bathroom door we found it hit the bidet inside! Needs money spending on it to bring it up to an acceptable standard. On the good side it does have free parking and you can walk to Cordoba's main attractions. The bar waiter was chirpy and made us smile when we had a drink there.
On the plus side - free parking and about a 10 min walk to historic part of town. The staff were at best indifferent. The room was ok, not very clean but the sheets and towels were. The beds were hard, pillow flat. The bathroom was grim, dirty and missing grout, the water was hot. There is tv. Breakfast in the restaurant downstairs was limited but cheap.
Ok. Let's start with the positive. Its was reaspnably clean. The rooms are a reasonable size; there is hot water and the airconditioning works.. It is a 15 minute walk from the historic sites. It is a 10 minute walk to the nearest supermarket ((Lidl) Burger King and other food outlets. There are ample restaurants and bar nearby. There is free parking locally.
Now the less positive. The hotel suffers from a lack of TLC.. The notices in the corridors " Silencio Por Favor" warn you that this is not one for the light sleeper. You will hear the slightest sounds from the rooms eround yours. The room doors closers have no cushioning so if you are a light sleeper expect to be wakened several times during the night and early morning. close with My floor (stone) had no carpet. The bearings on the metal windows have long since run their last race. My room was not serviced during my short stay. Worst of all the wifi reception was patchy at best.
