If you have the time and the money there is no better place in Spain to spend a week. The Parador was opened five years ago and you can tell a good proportion of the national debt has been spent on the renovation of the building. I was in a standard room but it was very spacious and elegant, not over furnished or overdecorated. The room had a balcony overlooking an outdoor restaurant in the garden, large spacious bathrooms, comfortable beds and the usual fridge and TV,
The hotel is in the spectacular village of La Granja de San Ildefonso set at the foot of the Guarrama mountains, which is famous for its palace, gardens and fountains which are a day's outing in themselves. You are also within driving distance of many other sights such as Segovia, El Escorial and the Valle de los Caidos. There are also some great walks up into the hills and pine forests. The village is very lively in the summer when many escape from the heat of Madrid but it is not just a tourist attraction; there is a thriving community here and so some good restaurants and bars.
The hotel is very easy to find, come in the main gates to the village and turn left, it's the big building on the left as you go downhill. The hotel has private parking in the village.
