Classic ParadorPosted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: It's old-fashioned flavour
Cons: I thought the staff were a bit offhand and there was a lack of tourist imformation.
Location: The location is pretty prosaic with just the castle and the small town in the immediate vicinity. I think the point is just to be in the building.
Only an overnight stay but very pleasing. I had a huge room looking out onto the surrounding countryside with the biggest bathroom I have ever had in a hotel. The ambiance was very good with period furniture and old paintings in the public areas. There was a nice balcony overlooking the courtyard facing the old castle next door, (not visited). The parador is situated in the small town, typically Spanish. The restuarant was quiet on my visit but provided a pleasant meal and wine with excellent service. .

Beautiful hotel and setting.Posted Oct 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
If you ever thought that you could not afford to stay in an old Parador think again. Built in the 13th century on a hill next to a castle a 5 minute walk from the square of a small Spanish town, views across countryside, spacious bedrooms and public rooms full of character. This is an ideal overnight stop when travelling as there is plenty of parking and you can wander down into the square and have a drink or eat alongside the locals. My only (tiny) criticism is that the beds were a little hard for me. A word of warning, this is a very old building so WiFi is only available in the public rooms, but there is cable access in the room so just bring a network cable and you can use a laptop if that is an issue but it is a small inconvenience compared to what you get. Great value for money in a lovely setting.

Stay here if you can!Posted May 26, 2011 on Hotels.com
I just returned from a stay at the Parador de Oropesa Toledo and am happy to say that it was a complete delight. It is everything you want a parador to be. Our room was on the corner of the top floor and had window views to die for. We especially enjoyed watching the storks in their nests, each with stork chicks. The town is very charming and an easy walk from the parador. The hotel dinner is a little pricey, so you may want to walk into town for more reasonable (and plainer) fare. While walking around on warm days, pick up a Magnum ice cream bar (with almonds). There are a number of historic buildings here, so there is plenty to see. This is the original parador and it is easy to see why. It has had a lot of history since becoming a parador (be sure to read the history in the lobby). This was our favorite stay in Spain, and it was very easy to get to on our way to Madrid. Also, watch the swallows skim the swimming pool for a drink without getting wet...very impressive. I also liked the courtyard parking (very secure). I can't imagine anyone not liking this hotel. If you are headed to Madrid, it is very easy to swing down to Toledo for a day trip on the way.
