If you are searching for a nice, clean hotel with kind staff and good breakfast, yet nothing special, especially when there are two of you, because the beds are small, this is a good alternative of a hotel to stay at. As I said before, it is nothing special, but you will not feel uncomfortable or regret paying for it.

Dear Mia B, We appreciate your feedback about our staff’s attention and buffet. Thanks for the recommendation of our hotel as a good option to stay in town. It 's true that some of our rooms have beds that could be small if you are a big person. Although they are the stardard size in the country (90 x 190).... More

Comfortable room with air conditioning. Good clean bathroom with jacussi bath. Lift very slow but it worked. Excellent breakfast but hot selection could be warmer. Adjoining bar serves a good menu del dia but options not changed in the 4 days we were there. Friendly enough service so would stay again.

Being just one street from the Monastery and short walking distance to many restaurants made this the perfect location. But parking can be a challenge. The hotel has an arrangement with another hotel 200m away with affordable price but a bit tight with access to the parking spaces. We arrived after dark on a rainy night and with a narrow... More

It's a standard and classical Hotel with confortable rooms (but a bit dirty) and climatized. The staff is nice and the breakfast is the best: juices, coffe, home made cakes, biscuits, croissants, bread, ham, cheese, sausage, eggs, fruit. Tasty and fresh! The location is perfect, in the center of the village in front of the Monasterio of El Escorial and... More

The people who manage this hotel should be ashamed of themselves. This has been the worst hotel experience I have had by far. 1. The room is not big enough for one person let alone 2. There literally wasn't room for me to walk out of bed to the door without hitting into the desk. 3. The cleanliness is atrocious..... More

The Hotel Florida certainly sets the bar high for customer satisfaction - and they have succeeded in all aspects. From check-in to check-out 7 days later there is not one negative to be found. Pre-booked over TripAdvisor through Expedia I was somewhat uncertain of what would be in store on our arrival. We were upgraded to a large room with... More

It took us quite some time before finding a decent accommodation for a reasonable price in El Escorial. We checked the hostal los tres arcos: very far from the center, on a very noisy and stinky room, no breakfast included. The price was 40 euro for a 2 person room without breakfast. We after checked the hotel Parillia Principe, which... More

The Best Western Hotel Florida has one of the best locations in San Lorenzo del el Escorial. Right across from the monastery. Thew view is amazing, especially if enjoying a drink in front of the hotel. The staff is acommodating, professional and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed my stay.
