Where to stay in Toledo

When visiting Toledo, staying inside the old city walls allows for on foot access to all of the area's historical landmarks as well as a tight network of shops, restaurants, and museums. Similarly, staying in the old center, which sits on a raised hill overlooking the city, avoids a daily hike to the city's main attractions. Many old buildings in the center have been transformed into boutique hotels and guest houses, allowing visitors to experience the rich historical heritage and beautiful architecture of the city.

  • This is a fairly small building that you can tour in a fairly short amount of time. It's a worthwhile visit to make and the surrounding neighborhood is great to walk around, too. Be sure to peer over ...  more »

  • Small but nice and cheap. Free on Saturdays after 14:00, so try aim for that. Some shops for Jewish items in the vicinity.
  • A beautiful building with a sad history. Well preserved and nice small museum. Would have been better if the descriptions were available in English too but we are in Spain.
  • Well decorated interiors with quite a few artefacts although sadly lacking in English language explanations within the display cabinets. There's a small shop selling gifts as you exit. Free entrance on a Sunday :)
  • Expectacular
  • Impressive prayer hall marking the Jewish heritage in Toledo in Spain. There is an English audioguide accessible by your smartphone. However, there are no English notes in the museum.
