About the Hotel
With its mix of history and modernity, luxury and tranquillity, the Eurostars Palacio Buenavista is the dream destination for all visitors to Toledo. It occupies the spot where the Buenavista Palace was built, a palace apparently designed by no other than El Greco, and where famous literary and artistic figures, such as Miguel de Cervantes, Tirso de Molina, Baltasar Gracián and El Greco himself, used to hold social gatherings.

Toledo is one of the Spanish cities with the greatest wealth of monuments. Known as the “city of the three cultures”, because Christians, Arabs and Jews lived together there for centuries, behind its walls Toledo preserves an artistic and cultural legacy in the form of churches, palaces, fortresses, mosques and synagogues. This great diversity of artistic styles makes the old quarter of the capital of Castile – La Mancha a real open-air museum, which has led to it being declared a World Heritage Site.
