Hostal Azahar is located in the historic center of Córdoba, in the neighborhood of the Jewish quarter.

The most important monuments of the city will be around you and you can enjoy the city on foot without any problem.

Car access indications

To access our establishment, most navigation systems (GPS), take a wrong route and will make you circulate through the narrow streets of the Old Town where it is almost impossible to circulate due to the narrow and sinuous they are.

Therefore, we recommend that you follow the instructions below.

  • From the highway A4/E5 take the exit number 403/Cordoba Sur to Plaza Andalucia.
  • In the first roundabout go straight, taking the first exit.
  • In the second roundabout take the second exit to Centro Historico crossing the San Rafael’s bridge.
  • At the end of the bridge take the first on your right, Avda. del Alcazar. Please pay attention, Avda. del Alcazar is just at the end of the bridge.
  • Then take the first on your left.
  • Take the first on your right.

    IMPORTANT: this entrance to the historical center is restricted, it is only allowed for residents and hotel clients. As you can see, the access to the street is contolled by cameras and a bollard. If you have given your plate number before coming, the camera will recognize it and the bollard will go down. If not, you can call to the intercom on your left and say you are coming to Hostal Esencia de Azahar. Once you get here you will have to give us the plate number so we can notify it to the police.It is very important that you wait until the trafic light is yellow, that means that the bollard is totally hidden.

  • Continue straigth ahead and you will see the back of the Mosque on your left.
  • We are placed in the crossing opposite the Mosque.
