Lovely, clean studio apartment, with a private bathroom and huge terrace on the top floor of a gorgeous, renovated house in the center of Cordoba in the Santa Marina area ("Los Patios") on Unesco´s List of Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
The studio is on the top floor of the house where I live, in the first floor and the access to the studio is absolutely independent.
The studio is small (15 metres), but very functional! It has a sofa bed for two persons (135x200cm) very confortable and if you need, a cot (80x200cm). Inside the studio has a private bathroom with a shower.
If you come with a baby, you'll have a crib for the baby (on request).
There´s air conditioning, heating, TV, coffee maker (nesspreso), microwave oven and a small refrigerator, where I leave for you, juice, milk, fruit, mermelade and snacks and sweets for breakfast. On the terrace (30 metres), you´ll have a table with two chairs, and a wonderful view of the rooftops of the city.
The atmosphere of the room is very relaxing and the light and the views that you can to see from the room!.
If you have a car, I have a parking space next door, and I include it in the price of your room!
The house is very quiet and located in one of the most typical neighborhoods of Cordoba called Santa Marina and this area is filled the Patios that can be visited in the month of May. The feast of the PATIOS has been recently chosen Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. My neighborhoods is a very safe and quiet and walking is about 10 minutes from the Mosque Area...It's a very pleasant walk because you'll cross lovely places as the Corredera Square , Plaza del Potro, and many Fernandina's Churches.

We enjoyed staying at Maria Jose's studio. This rooftop unit has a large terrace with an amazing view of the city. The studio itself was very clean and tastefully decorated. Driving in the heart of Cordoba was challenging, and it was great that we were able to leave our car, and walk everywhere during our stay. Gated parking space was definitely a plus.
Maria Jose is very welcoming and friendly. She was flexible with our check-in time, and provided us with snacks, and everything we needed. She took the time to provide a suggested itinerary and a map with excellent food recommendations. Although it did not inconvenience us, there is no wifi inside the unit. Internet can be used downstairs.
We would definitely recommend this place for anyone planning on visiting Cordoba.
This place is great! The room is quiet and comfy and the immense rooftop terrace offers a wonderful view over the city. Location is perfect: within 10 minutes walking distance from the monuments and with a free private parking spot nearby. The greatest treat however is Maria herself, who is the warmest and most welcoming host imaginable. She was all smiles and helped us out with whatever it was we came to bother her with. Very highly recommended!
My dear Brecht & Joris, thanks, thanks, thanks for you evaluation and for to have the pleasure of meeting and for choosing to stay home these days in Córdoba. I keep and precious memories of your stay and hope we can find when you travel to brussels. A warm hug for the two.
Quelle belle surprise que ce charmant logis perché sur les toits ! A quelques pas seulement des merveilles de cette cité et idéalement placé sur une petite place tranquille avec une vue romantique sur la Iglesia de Santa Marina .
Tout cela serait amplement suffisant, mais il faut y ajouter l'accueil charmant de Maria , de sa ravissante fille Carolina ainsi que de son "interprète" français pour l'occasion, Xavier :) .
Encore merci pour votre accueil et pour la qualité du logement!
It was great to stay in Maria Jose's house. She tought of all the details and even more. The personal guide about Cordoba that she wrote for her guest was absolutely amazing. It was great to be in such a clean rooftop appartment in the middle of the center. I love it when you walk into a room/appartment and it already smells nice :-) Hope my next experiences will be like this one!
Hi Marie Jose,
Thanks a lot for your hospitality and our stay with you. We enjoyed your beautiful studio. Our last morning with you we had sunshine and the church bells ringing and a fantastic view of the church. What a fantastic studio and B & B. Also thanks for all your tips and info. about Cordoba!! We had a great stay with you. All the best with everything,
Carla and Rob
It was our first Air BNB experience. This is good and bad news. Good, because we loved it. Bad, because nobody can compare to Maria Jose in terms of hospitality (we will keep looking though). We always find ourselves comparing other Air BNB experiences to that of Maria Jose. What I liked in particular were (1) car parking 50 meters from the apartment included in the price (we struggled with that in other central places in Andalusia) (2) Maria Jose's personally composed guidebook to discover real Cordoba (3) and the views to the roofs to Cordoba - photos can't capture that. Absolutely recommended!
My dear Nora, I can only thank you for your comment. I have enjoyed reading your words. You can't imagine the illusion that makes me to know that you have felt right at home and my tips have helped you discover this beautiful city is Córdoba. Here you will have always your house and of course when you go to Barcelona to see if we can write ourselves. I will not say goodbye before you know before thanks for the chocolate! Delicius!!. Take this opportunity to congratulate you on the Christmas's holidays coming soon and I hope to spend podais surrounded by friends and good company. A big kiss for both!.Maria
We booked with Maria Jose because we expected a good personal service, and thats what we got. Maria Jose can now speak English well enough to deal with your enquiry. Also the secure car parking was good with access whenever we needed it. Everything in the studio was in working order, clean and comfortable.
This is a charming little studio apartment with everything you need in a good location, 15 minutes walk from the attractions.And another not mentioned much in the tourist literature only 400m away, the Courtyards of Viana, €5, with 12 varied and beautiful courtyard gardens immaculately maintained, and the option to pay an extra €3 to view the interior of this centuries-old house.We really liked the Taberna Luque, a small family run restaurant at 4 Calle Blanco Belmonte with a good menu, and very well cooked food.
We liked the area and felt comfortable there with plenty of attractions to occupy us.
Maria is such a lovely host! She took time to share with us her favorite dinner places, the main attractions we should see in Cordoba and gave good instructions on how to reach her lovely appartement. The studio is indeed charming, ideally located in the very centre of the city. The bed is a bit tight to accommodate two people but the breakfast counterbalances this, and the view from the terrasse is amazing! I definitely recommend Maria!
