“Delightful mod. spacious room right in the centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

What a gem!! Greeted by the owner who helped us navigate the pedestrian-only entrance for our car, took in the luggage and directed us to the car park below. Rooms are spacious, modern bathroom, and our balcony on the 3rd floor overlooked ancient tiled roofs and the main street below. Free wifi that worked well as did th air conditioning. Highly recommended. If you are driving here, just remember that navigating narrow streets is an adventure, not a trial!!

We stayed recently for 2 nights and loved it! The hostal is located close to all the sights and our room had a lovely balcony overlooking the terracotta roof tiles of Toledo. The people running the Hostal were lovely and really helped make our stay a pleasure. The only thing we could suggest would be a jug for tea and coffee making.

We liked this place so much that we stayed an extra day. It's clean and cosy and located in one of the most historic places in the city. Our room on the very top floor was not large but we had a huge balcony facing the street. The free Wifi worked fine in our room. Owner was extremely courteous and friendly, giving us keys to look at various rooms so we could pick the one we wanted. The reception is located in a souvenir shop but this caused us no problems. There's a lift to all floors (although if you have mobility problems you should know that at night, when the shop is closed, you will need to use another entrance which requires walking up one flight of stairs to get to the lift). We found that we could park on the street behind the hotel easily; it's paid but during siesta and after 20:00 it's free.

There is some noise from the street early in the morning (deliveries, trash collection) and from the cafe across the street until about midnight - but unless you're a light sleeper or wake up early/go to bed early it's not a problem. When we were there in June, we were amazed (and left hungry on the first night) that most bars and restaurants are shut by midnight which is most unusual in Spain.

The rooms at the back have a view and are probably quieter. There were only a handful of people in the hotel so the noise from other guests was not a problem for us but it's an old building with a lot of marble around so the sound does carry.

Also, there's not many spare plug sockets around so if you travel with a lot of gadgets then better bring an extension plug!

Handy tip: avoid the cafe right across the street from the hostel. It's a tourist trap and a rip off. Get yourself lost in the alleyways for better food and service.

Room Tip: If you want a street view, ask for the top floor rooms with a balcony. If you're a light sleeper...

Best location in town. Within walking distance from all the major sights, an extra attraction is the evenings when all the groups of daytrippers from Madrid are gone and the street is more like a village where all the locals know everybody (including you) and seems to be actual family.
Nice and clean rooms with great bathroom, AC, heating, TV etc. Try to ask for rooms 33 og 34. They are on the third floor (no problem, there is a lift) at both have large balconies overlooking the street and with sun in the mornings and evenings.
Most of all: This is not a hotel, but rooms over a souvenir shop. Which means: ENGLISH SPOKEN!
During our stay my husband got seriously ill and was hospitalized. The staff and especially the owner, Juan Carlos, was extremely helpfull - driving me to the hospital numerous times, attending meetings with hospital personnel and providing (much needed) interpretation, ever so helpfull and caring, providing water, food, books, whartever for me in a troublesome situation.

Cheap, but ain't worth it. At the arrival, we learnt that the hostal employee was also (or mainly) the employee of the gift shop situated underneath the hotel. It means no service at all because she couldn't help at the hotel, occupied all day long selling souvenirs... The wifi didn't work and the area was so noisy we couldn't sleep. On top of it, they have a parking space, but getting there is a nightmare due to all the one ways and narrow streets... Do yourself a favor, go somewhere else.

We found this little gem by accident as we were looking for another hotel that we was closed. It was meant to be as Pedro and his wife were the most hospitable hosts and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The hotel is clean, quiet and in the best location overlooking a cute plaza- oh and it's super cheap. Our room had balcony with unforgetable views over the rooftops of Toledo. The restaurant in the plaza below serves delicious local food and we stayed up until late watching the people walking byin the plaza. I want to go back now! It's all you need to make the most of your visit to this quaint town and many thanks to Pedro and his wife for going out of their way to make us feel safe and comfortable, really unique people will come back next time in Toledo.

We stayed at Hostal Santo Tome for one night in September 2008. We paid 51.40 euros + 11.21 euros (parking) + 7% VAT for one twin room for 2 people, breakfast not included.

The hotel is located in downtown Toledo, near Iglesia de Santo Tome (the Burial of the count of Orgaz painting by El Greco), the CAsa-Museo el Greco, San Juan de los Reyes church and the two mediaeval Synagogues. The hostal is located in a pedestrian street but the owner will come to you and open the pylon to let you get to the hostal's door, where you can unload your baggage. For the fee above mentioned, you can park your car in an underground secure garage which is a 10 minute walk from the hostal. The owners of the hostal manage a souvenir shop downstairs from where you enter the hostal during the day, otherwise there is a side door for the guests access.

In the same street there is the famous Santo Tome marzipan factory, where you can buy (probably) the best marzipan you've ever tasted (no preservatives, no artificial flavourings, just almond, sugar and honey). Just opposite the hostal there is a terraza Gambrinus where you can sit, relax and have a drink. However, do not bother with the food, which is overpriced and not very good. The hostal does not provide free wi-fi but down the street, by the marzipan shop, there is an internet cafe with about 8 computers (1 euro - half an hour access), probably open till late.

Our room was spacious, clean and had air conditioning. It was on the third floor, with a view of Santo Tome street. Overall, a pleasant stay and we would probably go back to Hostal Santo Tome in another visit to Toledo.

  • Liked — location, clean spacious room, friendly owners
  • Disliked — no free wifi but it is an hostal, so it was not expected
