“good location - but beware of the stairs!”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

This hotel is located at the edge of the old city walls, in a very old building. That said, the rooms are rather ordinary and the hotel breakfast was "meh" at best.

One word of advice - even with the side ramps up to the hotel, there are a lot of stairs. So if you're stair-adverse - or if you have a lot of luggage - be warned.

And a word of advice for drivers: there isn't actually a parking lot for the hotel. The public lot outside the entrance was full and there was nowhere to unload, let alone park a car.

The location is to gorgeous, the hotel itself is an old castle and is very charming and beautiful. The breakfast they offer is excellent as well. Just do not do laundry with them unless you read the list of prices per item. We paid $200+ not knowing the cost per item, but they were nice about it. I would highly recommend it nontheless.

My 8 year old son and I spent 3 nights in Toledo in March 2012. Staying at the Hostal del Cardenal made our vacation magical. Every day my son pretended to be a guard during medieval times and made us walk around the wall before leaving the hotel for the city. The hotel is a historic building and it is located right on the city wall. The staff at the hotel was friendly and always helpful and the restaurant was also very nice. Breakfast was good and you could use the expresso coffee maker at any time during the day. Across the street, there is a nice park where they had a street market during our stay. It was very colorful, with life music and lots of people. We bought many old used books at the market.

The Hotel del Cardenal is a charming hotel right on the old city wall yet with a very secluded feeling. The grounds are lovely and inviting to sit out in the evening- there is also a terrace indoors on the first level in which we enjoyed a quiet moment before bed. A few steps out the door and you are at the escalators (and escalators...) to take you up to the old city. Everything you might like to see is at easy walking distance, depending on your fitness level as there are a lot of steep climbs. Comfortable bed and pillows, helpful staff. The only downside is that sound travels here and you can be a bit too aware of your fellow residents.

We stayed for 3 nights and ate in the hotel on 2 of them, in the outdoor area of the restaurant. We found all the staff helpful and friendly and the hotel gardens are a great place to chill out and relax after the bustle of Toledo. Very handy for the escalators to avoid exhausting uphill trek into the town.

Room Tip: Our ground floor room windows opened onto an indoor courtyard which is a great spot to sit and read...

This hotel is located right outside the walls of Toledo. Unlike our usual stays at modern hotels, this place looks like it could be part of the wall itself. Since it is a historic building, it creates an atmosphere that Makesyou feel like your still experiencing Toledo long after you've finished the tour. My wife got food poisoning in Madrid and we arrived here, the staff was very concerned and helpful. They told us where the local hospital was located and even checked up on us and brought up some tea. I would definitely stay here again next time I am passing through!

We stayed there for a couple of nights in July and it was fantastic. The location, the "ambiance", the grounds and the service were very very good. Happy we stayed there and can't wait to go back!!! We walked to our hotel from the train station, easy to do, great views and a good introduction for what's next!! It's like traveling back in time, Toledo was everything I expect it would be, the stay at this hotel was a big part of it.
