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 English language channels. The room has incredible views of the Monastery. Decor a bit tired but perfectly OK.
I imagine that if you stayed in some of the rooms used by other contributors your opinion could be completely different.
Breakfast was a bit of a joke, the waiter, although pleasant, was completely dopey and didn't seem to understand "bacon", same word in English and Spanish. Very basic breakfast, could do a lot better.
Reception staff friendly and helpful, parking OK once you know the ropes, park opposite, unload your luggage, get directions to the garage from reception, no problem.
We paid 110 euros for the room including breakfast and 10 euros for 1 night's parking, reasonable prices for such a tourist attraction area.
Be sure to visit both the Royal Monastery, best time is around 6.00pm to avoid the crowds and The Valley of the Fallen, very near to El Escorial, both very creepy places.
