We stayed on the second floor, on room number 32, with the best views of Toledo from our balcony. I cannot think of any better sights from anywhere else. The Alcazar directly across our balcony, the majestic River Tajo to the right, the hotel's courtyard's fountain... whoever thought of the location of this property did a perfect job, there is simply no better place to witness the city of Toledo from your room, specially at night when all landmarks are lighted up.
We were welcomed by a very nice and professional receptionist that handled non stop incoming phone calls and managed to check us in at the same time gracefully, she even offered some treats to our dogs before we headed upstairs to our room.
The room we stayed in, room 32, was directly located above the lobby, and the only negative point of our stay was that we could hear everything from upstairs, even all the way down to the restaurant, located two floors below from the room, the noise would permeate the walls as if the guests were right there, by the room's door. Luckily sleep crept in quickly, after a busy day visiting the city, so this did not interfere with our rest, however, guests a bit more sensitive to noise need to stay away from rooms 32 and 33, the rest of the rooms seem to be quite distant from the lobby, so I guess the noise would not be an issue.
The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, small, private, with a lovely courtyard, a restaurant downstairs, but the best thing about the property are the views from any given point. All rooms offer a privileged view of Toledo, however, those on the upper floor, as it was our case, have even better sights of the city.
We had everything we needed in the spacious room, including a small fridge, and even two pairs of slippers in the closet!
The property is also located within walking distance to the city, although this is relative, walking distance for me is 30 minutes, other people might find it a bit far. Either way, the historic city center is only a few minutes away, and there is plenty of parking space everywhere around.
On a different note, the hotel seems to be surrounded by a few abandoned houses, giving it a bit of a ghostly atmosphere as soon as you leave the walls that surround the property, but other than that, nothing suggested that the area is not safe, maybe a bit isolated, if something.
We loved our stay and will book with them again without even bothering looking somewhere else.
