This hotel was a bit hard to find; it’s near the Puerta de Bisagra. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the lovely woman who brought me a cup of mint tea because I wasn’t feeling well. It was in a great location right on the old city walls (you have to go through them to get in to the... More

Beautiful building and grounds located right outside the old city wall. We had a room with a balcony overlooking a garden - definitely worth the extra cost. Breakfasts were very good in both quality and quantity. However, we were very disappointed in dinner at the restaurant which we found overpriced and of mediocre quality. We were also disappointed by poor... More

We would highly recommend staying here. You only need one night in Toledo to get a true feel for the place. The hotel staff was accommodating and helpful. The location was excellent. Breakfast was enough and got us on our way.

Very good hotel, in the centre. Very nice rooms, spacious and very cleaned. The hotel has pretty quirky relaxing areas. Unfortunately there is a shortage of staff and the bare was under staffed. Also only one waiter for the whole breafast room. Breakfast was good and despite the lack of service I defence toy recommend this hotel. Receptionist very friendly.

Nice room, nice staff, nice restaurant. OK breakfast. We booked two rooms - and the cancellation policy is very clear - the cancellation fee is the full room charge. They debited my credit card immediately, despite booking a couple of months in advance, for the rooms and breakfast. We then had to cancel one room - Booking.com tried for us,... More

This hotel is so beautiful & unique. It is set in an old castle & within that there are the gardens, terraces & beautiful rooms. It's very close to Toledo city, just an escalator ride away :-) The staff are really kind & helpful too, all spoke English. I'd definitely come back here.

Historical & loaded with character. Super cozy beds, exquisite palatial grounds & very reasonable prices. My son told me it was the most comfortable hotel bed he slept in & he's slept in a 100+ of them. The ambiance of the property is really cool. One of the only stretches of the old city walls that you can actually walk... More

Part of the old city wall, this hotel is first class. Upgrade to the superior standard room. More than worth it! Private terrace, sitting room, more than amazing. Be prepared for a lot of stairs. No elevators here but plenty of staff to haul the luggage. Will definitely stay here again.

We spent two nights at the Hostel Cardenal and consider it to be a good place to stay in Toledo. It has an excellent location, quiet comfortable rooms, and helpful, friendly staff. The location is at the bottom of the hill next to the old city wall. Everything in the old city is accessible with a reasonable walk. Other reviewers... More

Built in the old city wall, I felt like I was in a castle. The grounds were manicured, the decor elegant. It was an overload to the senses - beautiful! The room was huge, elegant with a porch that had a large closet with mirrors and the huge bathroom was off the porch. This room was fantastic for 3 women.... More
