The view from the Parador includes the river below, the old arab fortress and the cathedral of Toledo.

The cathedral is said to be the richest in Spain and has in its possession several paintings by Rubens, Bellini, Titian and El Greco.

Another of the treasures of the cathedral is the giant gold monstrance which weighs almost half a ton. It is said to contain the first gold brought back from the Americas by Columbus. The cathedral also has two illustrated thirteenth century bibles which are worth seeing.

El Greco's most famous painting is in the church of Santo Tome. Its title is 'The Burial of Count Orgaz". The name of the Parador is in recognition of this famous painting.

The interior of the Parador of Toledo is spacious and has luxury furnishing with comfortable furniture and wooden beams, staircases and banisters.

The Arab influence of the area is reflected in the Parador by the rugs, copper ware and decorative tiles.

The parador is lovely, and the view from the terrace is grand. We had a suite with a private terrace that was very nice, although it was not clear whether the pool was open. Some of the food selections in the restaurant were a little disappointing, especially the bread, which we always have enjoyed in Spain. Getting to Toledo was expensive. It costs more to call a cab, and we found later there is a stand outside the hotel. It would be nice to have a shuttle or at least a cab stand at the hotel. thevstaff were extremely cordial and helpful, and we would stay here again, probably renting a car.

We stayed in the parador for 2 nights with our children and grand-children. The bedrooms, public rooms and the swimming pool were highly satisfactory. Also the restaurant was very good, especially the terrace with a stunning view on the old town. The service left nothing to be desired. The location of the hotel is perfect, on a hill overlooking the old town. The town is a few minutes away with a car and there is a big parking house , from which the center can be reached by a large escalator. We had a wonderful time in the parador.

I have stayed at this Parador twice, once in 2002 and once last summer. It is the only place to stay if you are visiting Toledo--which itself is a must. It is perched atop a hill with the most perfect view of Toledo imaginable; watching the sunset with a drink on the veranda is a joy. The rooms are of course comfortable and the food good and the staff helpful, friendly, warm, and accommodating; but the location makes this Parador an absolute must.

Toledo is a fascinating city to visit. The parador has comfortable rooms, a friendly and helpful staff, and a gorgeous location. I have only two criticisms. The dining room decor is very cold and institutional, and would benefit from some redecorating. Also, it is difficult and expensive to get from the parador to Toledo. A regular shuttle bus would be helpful.
