Restaurants and food
The hotel also features a very elegant restaurant that has been redesigned following the tastes of Eugenia de Montijo. The restaurant´s menu offers an interesting mix of traditional manchego and toledo dishes and a fusion with international dishes.
In case you stay several days and you would like explore other options besides the hotel´s restaurant, we recommend you the vegetarian restaurant Madre Tierra, located very close to the Cathedral, and also Meson La Orza for less veggie palates.
Toledo Cathedral, Plaza de Zocodover, the Alcazar, the Greco museum, and actually most of Toledo’s main tourist attractions, as well as Toledo’s main shopping area are all within 10 minutes of the foot from the hotel.
The square where the hotel is located is called Plaza del Juego de Pelota. This name refers to a game played with the hand knocking with it against the wall. The ancient owner of the palace (Doña Eugenia de Montijo) was a Spanish aristocrat who enjoyed playing this game.
