Beautiful Historical Building!
Posted Dec 1, 2016
If you want to feel like you ARE in SPAIN, stay at this hotel! It is quaint, historical, and very Spanish. The location is excellent, since it is right inside the old city of Toledo. Its entrance is through the ancient wall on the north side. So, you can walk to everything in the old city, and nearby. Room was very comfortable. We stayed in suite 210, which I highly recommend. It has a wonderful, large balcony overlooking the gardens and the new city. It, also, has direct access to rooftop terrace. Hallways and stairways are just beautiful! There are courtyards, charming common areas, and a new small outdoor pool. Breakfast was included, which is the delicious Spanish buffet with everything from fruits, juices, waters, coffees, tortilla española, Spanish hams, cheeses, cereals, pastries, etc. Very enjoyable!
Staff at the desk are friendly and helpful. Hotel has newly renovated tapas lounge, which I highly recommend.
We ate in the formal upstairs dining room, which is beautiful! Food was excellent and service was excellent.
I have also eaten at this hotel in the summers at their outside dining courtyard. Highly recommend doing that in the summer. Only drawback about this hotel is that it is not handicap accessible, and there is no one to help bring in your luggage. So, you must drag luggage around cobbled ramp near wall, and then up a flight of stairs to enter the lobby.
We were very capable of doing this, so we did not mind. It may not be so fine with others.
