I am staying at the Hospederia de los Reyes in Toledo. I was originally going to stay in this hostel, but they only let you book three nights at a time. I was unwillingly to role the dice on going to Toledo at the height of the tourist season with only three out of fourteen days accounted for. The hostel is in a castle which dates from the Muslim period (tenth century), which would be great, but it is a bit of a walk from the Cathedral. It is actually outside the old city, across the Tajo River, on the south bank. You can actually see the castle/hostel in this picture.
So instead I am staying at this impressively named but oh so average looking Hospideria de los Reyes. It is just inside the Alcantara gate, along the old city walls (which date from the Christian period, twelfth century). At 44 euro per night, it is not badly priced, though that adds up to more than 600 for two weeks. When one considers that I paid less than 1000 for my six-week rental in Madrid, the price is disturbing. More on the Madrid place later.
