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.

  • The El Greco painting is very moving. It is nice to see just this paining and not be distracted by his many works, like in the Cathedral sacristy. There is also a church to walk around in if you go through the doors to the left of the masterpiece.
  • This places stays crowded with the El Greco painting on display. Unlike other places in Toledo no pictures are allowed here. That being said still a nice stop, and if you got the Toledo package its worth the wait.
  • Honestly all the churches in the Spain have the same style, this one is not as beautiful as some of the cathedrals. Staff are rude.
  • It's just the El Greco painting but definitely worth it.
  • They dont allow little dogs even in a basket case. We were everywhere in Toledo with our dog but not here. I didn't go in for this reason.
