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

Located very near the center of town this hotel offers good, clean accommodations at very reasonable prices. Parking can be a challenge, but, in my opinion, not the “nightmare” described below. Upon arrival at the hotel, we parked street side directly in front of the hotel entrance and didn’t move the car for four days since everything of interest is... More

Parking a nightmare. Once you have a space you won't want to move even if it's a distance away. One way system is a difficult to navigate!! We booked an attic room at extra cost and am still wondering why it was extra cost as it seemed more like a room knocked together in the loft of an old house... More

Hotel posada don Jaime This 3-day stay was one of the highlights of our month in France and Spain! Our host Ignacio has created an oasis just 5-10 min walk from the monastery. We were in Suite 7, a spacious hideaway on the top floor with reading chairs and perfect en suite (jacuzzi w/ good shower option). Yes, there are... More

Light, clean, spacious and comfortable all in one, and very stylish. Eating recommendations were exactly right. Side street parking was easy. You are greeted with a brief mini-guide of where to go on arrival that is most helpful. (I have a plan to go back and make a painting of the building as it is so charming).

Would recommend this small charming hotel to everybody wishing to visit El Escorial. Our room was delightful (we did have their best room) and spotless with very comfortable beds and excellent linen and towels; the building is very well located and tastefully renovated: the owner charming and very helpful and informative and breakfast in the patio was simple but delicious....

Very close to the monastery (a short walk uphill). We stayed only one night but the owner made sure we had all the information we needed in order to make the most out of our visit. As we arrived in the afternoon he gave us directions for an alternative walk to the 'Silla de Felipe II', and we really enjoyed... More

We stayed one night at this lovely hotel. It's located just up the street from the monastery, which makes it an ideal location to take in the scenery. It could almost be used as a location for reverse day trips into Madrid, if you want to enjoy a nice suburban atmosphere in the evenings. Everything is clean and the owners... More

We road tripped down from bilbao to malaga, stopping at a few B&B's on the way. This place is ideally located 5 minutes from the Palace itself, and was perfect for our needs. Everything was clean and tidy, wi-fi worked, and the owner was brilliant in explaining where everything was around town. Great for the money.
