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

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
