“Nice hotel in an excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We stayed at the Carlos V in late December. The hotel is located in the heart of Toledo, not too far from the Plaza de Zocodover. We parked at Coradillo de San Miguel which is on the edge of town and easy to get to. The cost was 14 euros per night. The Carlos V had an excellent breakfast with a lot of options. From the hotel you can easily walk to all of the sites of Toledo. We had a triple room and there was plenty of space for the three of us. We didn't have much of a view from our room, just the back of another building. Check in and check out were easy although the attendant at the hotel desk was not very personable. Toledo is a beautiful, old city and I recommend a stay at the Carlos V.

My husband and I stayed at hotel Carlos V while visiting Toledo last month.

The staff were extremely helpful and got in touch with us beforehand in order to help us find a parking space nearby. Car access to the hotel is limited to residents and taxis so we had to park at the Alcazar parking and walk down - about 100m.

Our room had a magnificent view over Toledo and we could really not have asked for more!

Breakfast was ok - do not expect full English but merely cold cuts - but the restaurant decoration paid off for it! You have to see it to understand what I am talking about!

All the major attractions of the maze - like Toledo are within walking distance!

Would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Please do ask for a room with a view!

After a long day of travel we rented a car at the Madrid airport and had a harroing ride to the Carlos V Hotel in Toledo. We had heard that the staff was cool but what I determined was they were reserved (as they should be). Please remember, this is not an "all inclusive Caribean resort", it is an inner city hotel that caters to vacationers and businessmen alike. I found them helpful and open once they knew what I wanted. The accomodations were a little on the tight side but when you look at the age of the building, it's understandable. The room was very clean and that means alot to me. We found you can't have the window open at night due to the locals who evidently do not have to get up for work the next morning. They talked loadly untill the trash collectors relieved them around six a.m.The hotel is about a 2 min. walk to the plaza which was full of restaraunts and shops, we had such a good time we stayed an extra day. If you plan on driving please note that the old part of the city (where we stayed ) has very, very narrow streets and parking is at a premium. We parked at a parking garage about two blocks away, we parked and walked everyhwere.

Room Tip: If you want a double bed you need to specify that up front and reiterate that at checkin. The Spanis...

We stayed in the hotel two days just after New year 2013. Hotel has Ideal location - 100 metres from Alcasar and 300 metres from Cathedral (walking route is a bit longer of course). Fantastic view on Toledo from hotel terrace - one of the best. It is well known that parking in Toledo is difficult - locations are few and price around 2 eur per hour. Free parking is outside from the old city. Hotel has agreement with parking near Alcasar -13 eur per day. Staff is competent and friendly, with good knowledge of English. Price is quite good for the hotel of such quality. Nice breakfast is served in the very impressive basement restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for room with windows to Alcasar or Cathedral

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.
