19th/early 20th century 'arab' style in keeping with the city, and so much nicer than the hideous modern stations that Spain seems intend on building.

It was a surprise that the train station is located in an old building, decorated in old style. Nice place with plenty of history. Small busy cafeteria while waiting for your train.

Pretty architecture and small enough not to be intimidating. Trains arrived and departed on time, plenty of taxis waiting on arriving trains. No complaints. Buy a map there to see what is in town - there's plenty to see.

Constructed in the early 1900's the railway building is really unique. For those of you who have seen Valencia station, I would put the Toledo railway station above them all.

They had really cool metal detectors here and signs that said you couldn't take knives or guns on the train. I had purchased a sword but they said that was perfectly fine to take on board. No knives, but swords are OK. Too funny!

Arriving at the railway station is like arriving at a medieval and very well preserved building. The interior is stunning and the windows are beautiful. this 'old' and very beautiful building is actually a purpose built railway station. Worth a visit for photographs. It has the wow factor.

If you aren't expecting this, it's astonishing. Absolutely superb. Like a sort of fin-de-siecle mudejar cathedral. Let's hope they never start filling it with 'retail outlets'.

This was a very nicely designed train station. Beautiful tiles everywhere and nice architecture. Very clean and not too big. Clean bathrooms and one small cafeteria. Prices at the cafeteria where a bit high in my opinion. You can take a taxi to the city or you can walk if you don't mind the climb. The old city isn to... More

Awesome! Beautiful architecture that stands out from many other train stations in Spain. Trains in Spain are super reliable, efficient and safe. Loved coming to visit Toledo and arriving by rail. This station is safe, clean, visually beautiful, spacious for crowds and easily accessible. An enhanced experience while visiting Toledo.

Could not believe the architecture of this train station. Coming from Madrid, you are impressed by the façade and the interiors.
