We stayed two nights in room 314 starting Sat. 17 May.
The good: nice size room facing the cathedral and Alcazar (see photos), nice sunsets, adequate storage space with room safe, two night stands and a small desk, nice bathroom with Jacuzzi, roll down window shutters block light and any noise, A/C and secure WiFi worked fine, extra large towels, receptionist staff were helpful. Terrific breakfast buffet in large attractive dinning room with Moorish decor: various cereals, pears, peaches, fruit cocktail, lemon, chocolate and plum cakes, hard boiled eggs, various breads, croissants, butter & jam, jamon, 2 salamis, yoghurt, flan, churros & chocolate, coffee/cappuccino/latte machine, OJ & pineapple juice – our best breakfast in Spain! We paid €99 for Sat. and €68 for our Sunday night stays.
The bad: no one mentioned that the A/C will not turn on if the balcony door is open. We spent a difficult humid night because we were not aware of this interlock feature. On the 3rd floor views are slightly obstructed.
Tips: From the train station we took the bus into town. As you exit the station building, head to the right of the parking lot and onto the main street where you will find the bus stop. Take the frequent #5 or #6 bus, about €1, and get off at Plaza de Zocodover. The bus stop is on Cuesta Carlos V. The simplest way to the hotel is to walk up the hill on the right side of Cuesta Carlos V for about 270 feet until you see a blue taxi sign on the left. At that point, turn into the alleyway on your right and go about 90 feet through the small parking lot area until you see the hotel entrance on your left.
Ask for a room with a view of the cathedral and Alcazar. The 4th floor might have better views but may be noisy, see other reviews. Take time to visit the 5th floor terrace bar for views of Toledo. Be sure to close the balcony door so the A/C functions!
