“Cathedral view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

It's been a while since we stopped in a 2 star hotel so was a little apprehensive, but given the previous reviews I'm glad we booked, we have actually stopped in worse 4 star hotels, so I'm not quite sure why it's only a two star.

We booked a superior room with a cathedral view, the staff were friendly and polite on arrival and spoke english, we were given room 214 which was through an internal courtyard, we were very pleased on seeing the room it was large with a super king bed and a sofa, the bathroom had nice fixtures and complementary toiletries, the view of the cathedral just finished it off.

We looked at the roof terrace, had it been a bit warmer it would have been a lovely setting to watch the sun set over the cathedral.

The hotel is in a good location 2 minutes from the cathedral and walking distance to all other sites, restaurants and bars.

Would definitely stay here again if visiting and would recommend to anyone.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Santa Isabel. The hotel is well placed in the old city, within a short walk from all popular attractions in magical Toledo. The terrace on the roof top gives this place an edge over others; try to wake up early and experience sunrise from up top! Great location for taking some nice landscape pictures of the old city.

The hotel is very fit for purpose for those aiming to explore the whole city and spend minimal time in the hotel room.

I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't prefer the Hotel Santa Isabel in Toledo. This reasonably priced, clean, friendly two star is located in the heart of the old city, just a short walk from the cathedral and ayuntamiento. Driving into these old cities is often a headache, but the hotel is well marked as you enter through the north gates. There is ample room to drop off luggage aside the Convento de Santa Isabel next door, and parking is available next to the hotel at 10 euros/daily. The staff couldn't be more accommodating. And all this at a most reasonable rate. It is no wonder that this hotel gets rave reviews from everyone, this happy client included.

Enough has been said about the beautiful city of Toledo, but the experience of finding Hotel Santa Isabel was priceless. We followed our Sat Nav and really felt Sat Nav Sally had lost it. The streets got narrower and narrower, we wound the wing mirrors in and the locals smiled at us. But at last we were at the hotel, we signed in and then fully expected to be directed back down the hill to park. But, oh joy, there was an under hotel car park. The situation was perfect for exploring and the view from the roof, expecially at sunset was stunning. Nice room, attentive staff, good breakfast. Job done.

The location of this hotel is good. Well located for sightseeing and dinner. The room was large and clean. The staff was helpful. We parked our car in their private garage, under the hotel. Unfortunately, the room had no safe. Breakfast was served rather than buffet.

Lodging full of character in an antique building with easy access to cathedral and old Jewish quarter. Room small, but clean. Inexpensive continental breakfast available that included a nice helping of fruit.

Helpful front-desk man came to my rescue when I couldn’t park the large car we had rented an hour before with its unfamiliar gear-shift pattern in the tiny space in the nearby plaza and parked it for me.

This hotel has a lot of features that to enjoy - its location in the old city, the comfortable rooms, wifi access, but the best feature by far is the rooftop terrace. The views of the city and the cathedral are fantastic! The location is great - you wind your way through the narrow streets to get here. The room was comfortable and more spacious than many in Europe. We arrived early, about noon, but the staff allowed us to check in to our room since it was ready. They also held our luggage for us on check-out day until we were ready to depart.

If you are coming from the train station, catch a taxi to the hotel. It would be a bit of a walk from where the bus can drop you (the busses don't go down the small streets in the old part of town) and the taxi ride through these narrow streets is a fun experience. Some posters have mentioned the noise. We didn't find it to be overly noisy and if you need absolute quiet I would not recommend staying in the older part of Toledo due to the old buildings and narrow streets that help noise carry a bit further.

If I were to return to Toledo, I would stay in Hotel Santa Isabel again.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the cathedral but others overlook the tiny narrow streets that characterize Tole...
