What is your favorite place to stay in Toledo and why?

We have only one night in Toledo. Would like to stay in the old section.

I had a great experience at the Hostal del Cardenal - its in a gorgeous setting in part of the old city wall.

Have to agree with the above poster. When we drove up and saw the grounds we couldn't believe that this was where we were staying for such a small amount of money! It's atmosphere plus more atmosphere. It's down the hill from the historic town square and right next to a giant escalator that takes you up to the other end of town. As long as you have the whole day, 1 night is good for Toledo.

While I liked the Cardenal very much, and it does have the advantage of on-site parking which was free when we were there, I think that I would stay in the old city itself the next time. I thought it was rather a long walk to most of the main sights, even from the top of the escalator. Or perhaps I thought this because we were perpetually a bit lost! And while the restaurant at the Cardenal is good, I would like to be closer to a more lively area at night..

I have not investigated so I don't know the lodging options at the top of the city, but it might be worth a look...

Cardenal is very nice, but the location is distant from the center of town for a visit of only one night. Because there is so much to see in Toledo, and thus your time will be spent out of your hotel, I recommend a more central location at half the price.

I like the Hostal Centro for ideal location and price. Double rooms start at 45 Euros. It is clean, comfortable and ideally situated.

Nuevo Labrador is in a good location and doubles start at 42 Euros

We have stayed twice at Hostal Santo Tome, its in a great position in the old town, easy walking everywhere, very friendly owners and they also have underground parking which is just a few minutes away from the hotel. Check it out www.hostalsantotome-toledo.com/
