A few years ago we spent a weekend in Toledo in low season. Since we didn’t feel like walking we decided to stay in a hotel close to the entrance to the city.
Since it was lunchtime we decided to go into the Hostal del Cardenal. We went in a bit contrived because it is located in the same wall, next to the Alfonso VI Gate. First you go into a French-style garden, a paradise. It is very impressive. This area was converted into a small summer palace for the Cister Cardinal who had the responsibility of protecting the entrance to the city.
The place is all luxury full of details and with the innovations corresponding to a three star hotel. You breathe history, peace and a variety of details.
The prices are a bit higher compared to other hotels of the same category, but with less quality of space. The restaurant serves national and international dishes. We paid only about 40 Euros for both of us.
The service is very good, but for me, the best part of the hotel, that it is full of paintings, armors and furniture of the time, is how peaceful it is. It has impressive views and it is close to everything.
Its only negative point is that it has few parking spaces; however, the free public parking lot is nearby.
