We recently stayed at Posada Don Jaime and had a wonderful stay. We were there on a weekday in February, so not crowded. Our room was clean and wonderful. The location is convenient and walking distance from what you want to see. Ignacio is a great host. He takes time to help with your visit plans and all recommendations. He... More

Our trip to San Lorenzo El Escorial was planned for 2013 but we did not visit until November 2014. One of the reasons was the Hotel Posada Don Jaime was booked for the dates we wanted in 2013 so our trip didn't pan out. We stayed a few nights in an attic room with Jacuzzi bath and lounge area. There... More

Consider staying in Ignacio's Hotel Posada Don Jaime in El Escorial if you want to visit Madrid, and get impressive San Lorenzo de El Escorial as a bonus. Hotel Posada Don Jaime is cheaper than comparable accommodation in Madrid. You have no traffic problems, fast and reliable free wifi, easy, affordable and regular transport to and from Madrid and a... More

I would recommend staying in this hotel even if you are planning a few days in Madrid as the welcome is so warm, the town is so interesting and the transport links to Madrid are excellent. Ignacio is a warm, humourous, enthusiastic and gentle host who goes out of his way to provide advice and assistance, without being obtrusive. He... More

It is not that often in one's travels that you encounter a host of Ignacio's calibre. A consummate professional in every sense with a great sense of humour to boot. It was smiles from the moment of arrival to our departure send off. Information abounded on what to see and where to eat and as we followed it to the... More

It was a delightful place to stay in, with a warm and helpful host, and beautiful decor. The location was excellent: near the monastery, shops and restaurants, but out the way of traffic on this side street. I was there with my daughter and her family and we all felt very welcome and well cared for.

This hotel is brilliantly situated for visiting the Palace (5-10min walk down the hill) and also the other attractions (eg Valley of the Fallen). Lovely tapas bars just 2 min walk away. The room was cleverly laid out with oodles of storage space of all types including a walk-in wardrobe which itself had chest of drawers that also contained a... More

We stayed for 1 night in June 2014 (50€), the room we had had a nice terrace and was very clean and well thought of. The owners are nice and gave us a map and expained in details where to go and what to see. Its situated right in middle of town, near the palace.

My husband and I stayed here on our vacation and were thrilled with the care and attention we received from the proprietor, Ignacio. Our room was beautiful and and comfortable. The bath was fantastic and the balcony a wonderful perk. It feels so much more like a home than a hotel! Ignacio also gave us some great ideas on things... More

If you have the time, it's good to stay in El Escorial overnight, rather than come up from Madrid for a few hours on the tourist excursion bus. In which case Don Jaime is an excellent solution, clean, ingenious, imaginative without overdoing it and very close to Phillip II's monastery/palace. Owners of hotel most attentive, courteous and kind. Parking is... More
