We rode the train from Barcelona through Madrid and into the historic station at Toledo. A short taxi ride to Hotel Carlos V, which is right across the intersection from The Explorers Club. I bet some great stories have been shared there.
The room was well-positioned on an upper floor to look out over the Cathedral a few blocks away, and much to our surprise there was no glass in the window. Just pigeons cooing right outside. Interesting, but my wife didn't like the thought of pigeons flying into the room, so I had to keep the shutters closed. That of course, made for poor ventilation, and the air conditioning doesn't get turned on until June. The gentleman at the hotel desk told me that the weather is "variable" this time of year, so no air conditioning is needed. We went to the rooftop bar to see if there was a cooler side of "variable" up there in the breeze.
At night we were entertained by the sound of bells from the nearby places of worship, which was nice.
The next day we took a city tour and found another hotel with air conditioning and window glass.
