Hospes Palacio del Bailío

Hospes Palacio del Bailío

*****

Roman ruins, carved Moorish gates, Tuscan-inspired frescoes and 16th-century Spanish architecture create a cultural and historical hodgepodge of heritage, yanked into modernity by sculptural chandeliers and smart contemporary furniture. Hospes Palacio del Bailío is alive with art; even the air seems heavy with grandeur as it breezes through the hotel’s marble corridors and orange-grove gardens.

Highlights:

  • Palatial dimensions and beautifully ornate interiors

  • Peaceful pool amid leafy orange-tree gardens

  • Fabulous Andalucían cuisine, served amid Roman ruins

Smith extra

A bottle of local olive oil; guests staying in a Dreamers Room will also get a bottle of cava when they dine in Senzone restaurant; those in a Superior Room or Suite will get a bottle of champagne.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Our taxi is bombing down the moonlit motorway, the garrulous driver jabbering away incomprehensibly. Uncharacteristically, Mr Smith and I are silent (all that remains of my GCSE Spanish is a smattering of stationery terms – una goma, una calculadora y un sacapuntas – and I can’t see this spicing up the conversation). Suddenly, Córdoba appears before us, its lights winking in the darkness like gold dust on velvet. Mr Smith nearly ruins the sense of mystery when he spies a sign for a shop called Porcenalosa on the roadside, and declares, ‘They have one of those in Wandsworth.’ But I’m practised

General facilities

    Dining information

    Restaurant:

    The hotel’s Andalucían restaurant, Senzone, occupies a wood-beamed indoor area and spills out into the glass-roofed central courtyard, where you can see the ruins of an ancient Roman house through the transparent floor panels below.

    Top table:

    Try to get a table tucked in the corner of the courtyard rather towards the middle – the combination of the clear glass floor and ceiling can conjure uneasy goldfish-bowl sensations.

    Last orders:

    Senzone doles out the dishes from 8.30pm until 11pm, but the tapas bar stays serving until midnight at the weekend.

    Room service:

    Snacks, sandwiches and salads can be brought to your room at any time.

    Hotel bar:

    Decorated with black-and-white matador-themed photographs, the Palacio’s subterranean tapas bar is both an informal dining alternative to Senzone, and a great place to relax with a glass or two of vino tinto.
