We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting the El Escorial. The hotel is a bit old, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. Parking is available on the street in back and is free from 3:00 pm to the next morning at 9:00 am. The city is relaxed and very clean. Despite the El Escorial tourist attraction,... More

The view was amazing - on the first floor, right opposite El Escorial. I imagine that's how they can charge these prices for a very mediocre room. Everything in it seemed old, but 70s/80s old, not antique-old. It reminded me more of hostels I stayed in as a student inter-railing around Europe. The mattress was rock-hard. The toilet wasn't clean... More

Our double room was on the 1st floor, with a beautiful view of the El Escorial Monastery. It was plain but very comfortable, with a large bathroom. Only complaint was that the whole hotel (rooms, bath, lobby,etc) need to be redecorated....it is still in the 1970's. Breakfast buffet was good.....in the antiquated dining room. "Cafetería"" nearby was okay. Dinner in... More

Excellent location and very good quality for the price. Breakfast buffet was included. The front desk staff gets extra points for finding and returning my daughter's tennis shoes, which she forgot in the room.
