We stayed here during the Christmay period (21-26 Dec, 2012). After arriving at the train station we took a taxi to the hotel, which is very nicely located in the historic center of Toledo. All the main attractions are at walking distance and the hotel turned out to be a good starting point for exploring the city. The period is however not the best since from late afternoon on the 24th until the morning of the 26th, everything seems to close down for Christmas celebrations.
Our room was very clean but relatively small and very noisy (who wants to wake up from you neighbor taking a shower?). Furthermore we didn't have the luck of a great view from the window, it merely was a cramped patio to look out on. In addition to that the air conditioning didn't seem to provide a nice cool stream of air, but instead heated the room to uncomfortable temperatures even at its lowest setting.
Breakfast was rather dull. Although there was enough food, it wasn't very inspiring and every day the same. We didn't have diner at the hotel, so nothing on that. Except for the fact that on the 24th we were told that the hotel restaurant was closed (as were most restaurants in the city), but that a large group that arrived that day was appearently able to have diner in the hotel! Lastly, don't try to get a drink in the hotel bar: there simply isn't one (apart from the one at the roof terrace, but that one's closed in winter).
In the end the location was perfect, but I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my friends!
