Parador Conde de Orgaz

Top choice hotel in Toledo

High above the southern bank of Río Tajo, Toledo's low-rise parador (luxurious state-owned hotel) has a classy interior and sublime-at-sunset city views. The parador is well signposted: turn right just after crossing the bridge northeast of the old centre. You'll need a car or be prepared to pay for a taxi (around €8).

Rooms are relatively large by Spanish standards and not as heritage-heavy as other paradores. To fully enjoy the location, ask a room with a balcony. Be prepared, this parador is popular with tour groups.
