Built into the city walls, this a a beautiful building, with a lovely garden and an unexpectedly good restaurant. The room was perfect, great bed with AC that I actually had to turn down in July. Lovely little balcony, and the bathroom had a bidet. Now that's civilization. As others have noted, it's quite a climb from where the taxi... More

This is a lovely old building but it is quite hard to get cases in and out as there are 50 big steps and a cobbled path to Reception. The bedroom was comfortable but on the small side. Breakfast was served in a beautiful small dining room but was not topped up, so late comers did not have a good... More

Just returned from four nights here. The building is a wonderful, old-style Spanish house set in lovely gardens in which there is a bar and restaurant. Our room on the ground floor overlooked the gardens and was clean, comfortable and quiet (despite a late wedding party in the garden!) and with a good quality bed. The only improvement would be...

While not perfect it has a lot of historic character and charm and an excellent place if staying overnight in Toledo (which is highly recommended). An easy and short cab ride from the train station and nestled at the base of the city's hill. A beautiful courtyard where you can relax and a smaller inner courtyard if the weather is... More

We found Hotel del Cardinal quite easily on our arrival in Toledo. Situated on the edge of old town walls it was fairly straightforward to spot. We parked outside in the small public car park and after consulting with the staff member we moved few meters up the road to the underground parking that had a deal with the hotel... More

Tricky to find but once there it is well placed for parking and the 6 esculators that take you up to the old city.The Hotel is comfortable and full of antiques and places to sit and relax but has a few surprisingly irritating minuses. The rooms are fine but missing a fridge or a place to make a late night... More

We had a great deal of fun finding this hotel which is just past the Biagra Gate - unfortunately, we must have counted the exits from roundabouts incorrectly and had a whale of a time driving through the narrow streets of the Old Town - but all was well in the end as some locals felt pity on us and...

A 17th century cardinal's palace built into the wall in Toledo is a convenient and wonderful place to stay. Near the Bisagra Gate it is close to the escalators that take you right into town. A parking garage is right next to the hotel and they give you a reduced rate if you have your ticket stamped before you leave.... More

My wife and adult child stayed here recently for an overnight in our first visit to Toledo. The location is terrific a short cab ride (5-6 Euro) from the train station. It is on the edge of the old city but 50 meters to the elevator, or an easy uphill walk to the Zocodover. (Much was made of climbing the... More

This hotel is most special. Its interior decor is a fusion of Muslim & Christian style. Located in a restored heritage building, the hotel reflects the cultural heritage of Toledo. the staff are polite & helpful. Internet access is available. Breakfast is adequate. The hotel is a distance away from the train station. I will recommend hotel guests to take... More
