“Well located, but average hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

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!

Room Tip: For sure avoid the rooms in the center of the building. They don't have any outside view, small...

We spent 2 nights there. Everything was perfect and we have a perfect view from our room's window toward the Cathedral and Alcazar.
Breakfast was perfect. Good location. Excellent services. Fresh and clean.
Reception speaks English.

Room Tip: Top floors.

Found the hotel the day before and was very impressed. Arabic style restaurant with beautiful arches in the basement
Wifi everywhere and helpful staff
Value for money was excellent
I was on the fourth floor and had marvelous views of the city landscape
Highly recommend

Very nice hotel, great location with small, but nice and clean rooms and bathrooms. Perfect for sightseeing and very close to all main attractions of Toledo (actually whole Toledo is an attraction). They could do more about the breakfast, though - at least to include eggs and few more sorts of jamon.

Stayed here for two nights recently having spent two also in Madrid. Hotel in good location as are most hotels in Toledo as it is a small place. We were looking for the bar on the second night but were told there's only a rooftop bar in Summer. Nothing in Winter. Have never stayed in a hotel with no bar. Couldn't even get a cup of coffee if you wanted one. Breakfast very basic so didn't even bother going down on the second morning. Staff not particularly friendly but the room was fine. Nothing really to rave about as it was really a glorified B and B.

Room Tip: High floor

Clean and quiet. Perfect location with two parking garages nearby.
Breakfast is a nice touch, since not all 3-star hotel during our travel through Spain offered breakfast.
And the view is amazing.
Would definitely recommend.

This is a beautiful small hotel with stunning views of the city. We've stayed for one night initially and we loved Toledo, so we changed our itinerary and came back to the same hotel for one more night. We've got different rooms, both with beautiful view of the cathedral. Although it says 3 stars, this hotel is close to a 4 stars. It is very clean throughout, large modern bathrooms and nice rooms. Reception staff is very polite and the roof top terrace is perfect for late nights with superb views of the city.
