For late drinks and music, go to Circulo del Arte, in what was the church of San Vincente, once the headquarters during the Inquisition and a place of worship during those days. And alas today you party hardy there so tells me my nieces and cousins ::) They always have something going, and many other activities too

Hope it helps your planning

Unique Quality: its been a while, but pass by several times when in town, great facilities, the best, a wonderful restaurant, and lovely surrounding.

Directions: from zocodover calle de armas, then calle de la carretas, and looking signs for Glorieta de la reconquista. Anybody know them in town thus.

Former residence of the Cardinal

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 2, 2006

The hotel is a charming old place with very modern rooms which are nicely decorated. Our bathroom was decorated with lovely tiles and the whole experience was one of staying in a really grand facility. Just across the hall from our room on the second floor was an open but enclosed patio where one could relax or have a drink in the open air.

The staff was most accommodating and helpful with maps, directions, luggage and calling a taxi for us once. The buffet breakfast was better than most, had a pretty wide selection of food and drinks and served in a charming room with real tablecloths. It was 7.57 Euros (I don’t know how they arrived at that figure). We enjoyed it but only ate there our first morning as we walked across the street to a park the second day
for churros at a little stand.

Prices were I thought excellent as we paid 90.44 Euros per night for two. I think I got a discount for booking by internet (or maybe it was a senior discount) because the posted rate was 106.40. We found everything about the hotel wonderful and thank our VT friend Deecat for the recommendation.

Unique Quality: The Hostel del Cardenal is an 18th C building built on land given to the Cardinal of Toledo (Bernard of Cluny) after the city was taken from the Moors by Alfonso VI in the late 11th C. The area just inside the old city walls was a recreational area for the Cardinals and Cardinal Lorenzana built the present building in the late 18th C. It is a charming place, the entrance to which is still through the old city walls. Entering here, you are in the lovely hotel garden, then you ascend a couple of short flights of stairs into the hotel proper. Off to the left as you enter is the hotel restaurant housed in what was formerly the summer residence.

Directions: From the center of the city go down the hill through the Puerta

A Little Jewel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 7, 2005

This little gem of a hotel has great service, nice -- if simple -- rooms and a lovely setting built right into the old walls of Toledo. The gardens arolund the hotel are quiet and shady and the ideal place for a quiet drink or meal. Best of all, this hotel has what is reputed to be the best restaurant in the city!

Unique Quality: Great gardens, excellent location, friendly service and a fabulous restaurant -- all for about $100 a day.
