The Palacio del Bailio is a beautifully restored former palace, set around patios and gardens in the heart of Cordoba.
Although the palace is protected as a cultural monument, it has been meticulously restored and the tasteful rooms are fitted with the latest technology. Facilities include an outdoor swimming pool and a spa housed in what were once the Roman baths, offering a sauna, steambath, Thai massages, reflexology and a variety of other treatments. The hotel's restaurant serves Andalucian cuisine, and there is also a more informal tapas bar, as well as 24-hour room service.
