Arriving in Toledo in the dark

One the more difficult things about the Hotel Domus Plaza Zocodover in Toledo was actually to find it, and it made it even more difficult because we were getting into Toledo by car. Toledo is not made for car tourism at all, having a car there is almost only trouble. We followed my GPS and it ended somewhere where there were absolutely no hotel and since Toledo is one long one way street or so it seems we had to drive out and in again a couple of times.
At one point I had enough and I parked in Spanish way and almost in the middle of the street and let my friend off to find the hotel. He came back 15 minutes later with a bit smile, we were parked just outside but the entrance was just a door; they had not any sign up.
When we returned to the hotel I could not help smiling at the entrance as I passed the glass door into the reception. At the reception the girl had prepared the paperwork, well we had to fill them out but she had them ready at the desk. The reception was quite amazing they had manage to modernize a quite tricky area with loads of angles and corridors in a trendy way and still visualize some of the ancient features of this amazing town where almost every house had been constructed 1000s of years ago.
My friend and I had been given neighbouring rooms on the second floor in this labyrinth of a house. The last couple of days we had been staying in hotels where we had loads of space but here space was a luxury that we hadn’t paid for. The room was really small and dark, it turned out that I had a window but it only faced a light tunnel coming from the roof. Otherwise there was a small bed, I can’t say in the corner because the room was a corner but it was of nice quality. The walls were white and the furniture was dark brown.
There was a small desk, a small flat screen and the bathroom was small but nice and functioning. Everything was new and modernized with a nice and clean style. The best part of the hotel was the location, which turned out to be amazing. The hotel was located at the square, Esq. Cuesta Alcázar that was the main entry place of this town, and it was on a place that was at mid level of the city so you had not to walk to much up or down to get to the main parts of Toledo.
After having checked in there was only one thing to do and that was walking the streets in order to find something to drink and then get some food.
