“Fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Located a few minutes walk to the walled city of Toledo, the Maria Cristina is a traditional Spanish hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food delicious. We had two attic rooms which were hot, at it was 36 degrees outside, but aircon great. The walled city is a must to go and see.

Stayed here with my family of 5 in late December. Excellent value (50 Euro per room). Comfortable beds, pillows and large, clean rooms. Bathrooms have nice, big towels. Easy access from autoroute, ample parking and short walk to old city. Also, the place actually has some kitschy "man-of-la-Mancha" charm to it!

Good location 15 min from old town (walking) just next to the bull ring so easy to find excellent parking outside and underground. The hotel has hints of old Spain with the terracotta floor tiles and old wooden doors. But the hotel is spotless through out. The reception were very helpful and everything we asked they were able to answer. Good English spoken here. There are restaurants all around and plenty of choice. A small convenience store is opposite so handy for room nibbles and drinks. A very pleasant stay thank you every one :)

The old town of Toledo is a must do visit and although this 3 star hotel isn't fancy and isn't inside the old town walls it's within walking distance, is well priced, with some Spanish character as well, all in all a good stopover for sightseeing. We had a large room for me, my partner and teenage son for just 52 euro, including a balcony (but no interesting view) and mini bar with a couple of beers. Genuine Spanish style in the floor tiling and dark wood joinery and all very clean and airy. As other reviewers mention, there is secure parking as an extra but you can park overnight for free off the main road at the front of the hotel. Breakfast was indifferent but OK and seemed typical of what most mid range hotels and cafes seemed to be offering. Also best to find a proper restaurant for dinner, For value in a short stay hotel this was the best hotel in our west to east coast Spanish trip and no hesitation in recommending it.

The hotel was chosen based upon location and facilities (private car park and free WiFi). Possibly could have been closer to the old town - but it was not a big problem. The hotel is charmingly old-fashioned, but we booked an attic room on the third floor which caused a few head bangs and curses. Our fault, but definitely it should not be offered for a price only marginally lower than other, normal rooms. Good breakfasts, nice staff.

We wanted a hotel hat had a private car park but with easy access to Toledo, this was perfect. It is easy to find from the A4 motorway.Our first room was on the corner and we had no wifi signal but the staff were very helpful and moved us to a room where the signal was good. First night we ate in the hotel, only do this for convenience as the food is not good, expensive and all microwaved. Breakfast was good and overall our stay was very pleasant. An easy walk into the centre or you can catch one of the many buses that stop just up the road to the hotel.Clean bedroom and bathroom. All staff were pleasant and helpful and spoke good english.

Room Tip: If you need wifi ask to be near to the stairs, but if you dont the corner rooms are large and bright

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

We'd rather of found a hotel nearer the main old town so with little time available we had more walking than we wanted in the heat. Its location on a busy main road was a negative. The staff were very helpful. The restaurant was deadly - no other diners and a restriced menu. The breakfast in the 'cafe' area was fine. The hotel is probably OK for business travellers but we'd rather of found somewhere more suited to tourists wanting to be close to the main sites of the old town.

BUT note - next door was the Hospital De San Juan Bautista - a great place; we had a personnal guided tour - facinating - see photo.

Room Tip: There may be an option to not face onto the main road - if so, take it.
