I have been here with friends visiting some other friends at El Escorial. The hotel was nice, good relation price-quality. We were in a triple room with views to the Monasterio. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast was good.

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.

I think this hotel can be judged in different ways, according to the room in which you stay. We were lucky to have room 114, a very large room with a big, comfortable double bed, huge bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and separate power shower and two large basins. A fridge is provided and a flat screen TV with some... More

Just in front of El Escorial: with wonderful morning views. Family rooms are large and nice. The rest of the hotel is just average

We were attending a friend's retirement party not far from El Escorial and stayed at the Florida as it was the only hotel we could find with accommodation. Other reviewers had summed up the hotel adequately so our expectations were not high and that proved to be the case. Our big issue was, after booking a double room, being given... More

I am at a conference in SL El Escorial in Spain and the organizers put all lecturers in the Hotel Florida (yes, I had no choice). Unfortunately, the conference center is undergoing renovations and so not all participants could stay there. Where should I start... The rooms are not clean. I am very allergic to mites and started breaking out... More

The employee at the reception desk was very unfriendly. A young man who just cashed our money without any type of greeting or thanks (we are Spanish, it was not a language issue). We asked him the timetable for the trains, he told us to look at the local newspaper. The rooms are very noisy, you can hear your neighbors... More

A stay at the Best Western Florida gives you a nice stay with ok sized rooms in a quiet town. Rooms size is ok, beds and tv are small, but ok. the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and gives themselves time to help you, which is appreciated as a tourist.

You couldn't get a better location than this small friendly hotel only minutes from the Monastery of San Lorenzo. The twin room we stayed in was spotless and had a well-equipped mini-bar that didn't break the bank. The heating system was excellent.
