“Quaint hotel in a great location!”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

The Hotel Santa Isabel is a quaint hotel very close to the Cathedral in the old section of Toledo. Although it is not easy to find (and driving in the narrow streets can be daunting), it was a great location for us as many of the historic attractions were within easy walking distance. There is limited parking underneath this small hotel. It has a beautiful room on the 1st floor (almost like a courtyard) and several rooms surround this on upper floors. Some of the rooms are small, but our room faced the cathedral which was beautiful at night. The reception staff were very helpful in directing us, and especially getting us back on the highway. It was very quiet at night after many tourists leave the cathedral area. Restaurants and shopping is very nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the cathedral.

This hostal is a fantastic place to explore the old town of Toledo. The hotel is lovely, the rooms are nice and clean and it's on an extremely quiet side street so you're guaranteed a good night's sleep. If you've hired a car this place is a MUST as it has it's own secure underground car park (for 10 Euros a night) which is great value compared to the various car parks round the city. We had the cheaper room at 45 Euros a night (as opposed to 55 Euros) but it was a lovely room en suite room. Staff helpful and speak reasonable English. For the price, this hotel is a bargain!

The hotel was great for what we needed. It was clean and spacious and perfect for the value we needed. Its location is awesome right by the cathedral and within the majestic walls of Toledo. Make sure you check out the roof top of the hotel because it offers one of the best free views in Toledo you can get. We stayed 2 nights and Toledo and we personally think you should stay minimum 2 nights in Toledo and only 1 in Segovia. Toledo is a charming city behind the walls and takes you back hundreds of years and truly is a gem. We would stay at this hotel any day!

We stayed here for just one night and it was an enjoyable experience that didn't break the bank. We had booked on-line - a good thing I was carrying a copy of the booking reference as they had absolutely no record of it. Luckily they had an available room; a better one, with fantastic views of the cathedral and across the tiled rooftops of the old town. They honoured the price we had originally paid, and were most apologetic, if a little flustered!
Our room was small and reasonably basic, but clean and the price was right. Car-parking is fine for a small car - apparently there are also some parks on the street nearby but we weren't offered this option.
Breakfast is adequate...no frillsand not exactly service with a smile...
The hotel is a stone's throw from the magnificent Cathedral and the old town centre where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Try Manchegan specialties from the little shop at the beginning of the street - the man behind the counter is delightful.
From the hotel, it's an easy walk to the old Jewish quarter and its beautiful synagogue and museum which is open to the public. Near to that is the El Greco Museum, which is due to open again in April (I think?) after being closed for renovations for some time now. If you don't want to visit the museum specifically, but would like to see some impressive El Greco portraits, check out the Cathedral's fabulous art collection, which also features paintings by Rubens and Caravaggio.
Toledo is well worth visiting, and Hotel Santa Isabel won't disappoint you if you are wanting to immerse yourself in the beautiful historical centre of the town.

Toledo is an amazing place. History exudes from the walls and streets. Staying here overnight was the best thing that we could have done. The atmosphere of the town is totally different in the evening after the day trippers have gone.
This hotel was a perfect place to stay. It is down one of the historic scenic streets that might better be termed a broad alley. Totally safe. We upgraded to a room with the cathedral view. Dusk, and the following morning, were mystical. The view of the cathedral, roof tops of indeterminate age and history, just incredible. The room was very well appointed. Bed was very comfortable, room was generously sized, and the bathroom was large and well equiped. Breakfast was not included, but we were able to find a nice place to eat about 10 minutes walk away. I think that this hotel is a great place to stay given the location, quality of room, and view of the room. I believe that they may have parking (we had no need to use same) but would discourage anyone from bringing a car here as the roads are narrow, winding, and rife with pedestrians (no sidewalks).

This small hotel is very convenient to all the sites of interest, especially the Cathedral. Breakfast was adequate and reasonable. The bathroom was very, very small but the beds were comfortable. Staff members were helpful. Free wifi was available.

Really loved this hotel. It is in a great location, overlooking an old church and right in the heart of the old city. Short walk to the cathedral. We had a lovely large room with a balcony. Very comfortable and clean and one of our favourite hotels in our travels throughout Spain and Portugal. Not a particularly friendly reception area but this didn't matter at all (I know some reviewers can get quite upset about this and would not want to mislead). One of the great things about the hotel is the roof-top access which gives lovely views across Cordoba. Great value for money.
