The Toledo Parador is beautiful, warm, and authentic. The air in the hills is fresh and we paid a bit extra to get a room with a good view of the city (which I recommend). Our room was decorated with pretty wooden furniture, hand-woven rugs, and a wood-beamed roof. Our room had a small balcony with a table and two chairs which we used mostly to snap lots of pictures of Toledo as the sun set. I also found the balcony to be an appropriate place to say my morning prayers.
The stairs, landing, and hallway leading to our room were decorated with
antique sofas and coffee tables where we sat and relaxed.
When we were there the Parador was completely booked (book ahead) and many if
not most of the toursist were Spanish.
The staff is pleasant and helpful and we were able to get good tourist information from the front desk.
All-in-all the place was beautiful, relaxing, and comfortable and I recommend
