TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kris Domenico Toledo
This is our second time to stay here. We first stayed here back in 2004. The hotel is on a hill overlooking the town of Toledo, beautiful views. The rooms are very clean and loved the large bathroom. They offered a delicious European breakfast with meats, cheeses and plenty more! Our triple room was 81 euros, which we found very reasonable for the luxury of the hotel.

Toledo used to be the capital of Spain until the mid 1600s when the capital was moved to Madrid.

Now to Greco's house which is a house museum adaptation of the years that he lived in Toledo.
Now it is a little late and we need to print our Boarding Pass because the airline that we take (Ryanair) needs you to have it printed, otherwise you must pay € 30 extra, so we started looking for a place to print. Walking we see the Church of ...
... I had some pasta to eat and a brownie. I slept for a couple hours. Other than that, nothing else happened.
So I land in Madrid. I have to get from here to Toledo. I have been given some "instructions" on how to get there but it never really makes sense until you actually get there. First part of the directions were to follow signs for the metro in the airport. No one told me how large this ...
