This is an old fashioned budget hotel located in the heart of San Lorenzo de El Escorial just a 4-minute walk from massive Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, a World Heritage site and one of the historical residences of the King of Spain. The room itself was a good size and with air conditioning. As other reviewers have remarked the furniture was a bit spartan, the wooden floors cracked, and the bed was quite hard, but the bathroom facilities were good, and hair dryer included. The breakfast was adequate - appetite reduced by the heat!

WiFi did reach our room, but only on an intermittent basis but worked in the lobby. There is easy access to shopping and many tourist attractions within walking distance, including the adjacent Coliseo de Carlos III Theater, a gof club about 20 minutes away and friars' Garden and Prince's House also.

Room tip: Try to get Monastery view

We came here about 1 pm after a tour of the Escorial, at the recommendation of our tour guide. The main dining room wasn't open yet, but we were able to get a tasty lunch in the more informal bar. Service was attentive and speedy, especially for Spain. It's a convenient and reasonably priced place to eat near the monastery.

I admit that I was somewhat reluctant to book here after reading reviews. But I thought the location was perfect and we would take a chance. We are glad we did!
It was fun walking into a hotel in the middle of Spain and hearing polka music:-)
Mario and the other front desk clerk were very courteous and helpful. It seemed obvious that management was on track to correct any issues of the past. The public area was neat and clean. We chose a basic room. The hardwood floors in the halls and our room appeared recently refinished. The room was spacious and the furnishings were basic. The bed was comfortable.
This is a budget to mid-range hotel, don't expect 5 star amenities. We felt very comfortable here and would stay here again.
The location is perfect! One block to the Monastery. Dining and shopping are all around the hotel. The hotel provides discounted public parking 2 blocks away.

Room tip: We always like to view the room prior to moving the luggage in. Just a good idea.

It's very well located, old style...average not super, it doesn't have parking, the rooms are clean but humble.
There's too much noise...drunk people in the street shouting, there's an annoying smoking smell in the rooms maybe people smoke in other rooms.

I was surprised by how quiet it was at this hotel. It looks quite grand from the entrance with massive dining rooms as well as a bar. I only spent a little time in the bar because there are so many other places to eat around the town. Most within 200m. A supermarket about half a km away has everything you might need. My room was the cheapest on offer (47 euro) and had no airconditioning.. It did not need it. Evening temperatures are cool to mild and the old style window mechanisms and shutters were fun. It felt like I was part of a 19th century dream. The bathroom was a little tired but everything was well maintained. When I wanted to sleep late the staff were very careful to not disturb.
The view form my window was fantastic, looking over bars and a fancy restaurant

Room tip: Pay a bit more for views of the Monastery and the nicest rooms or stay cheap and cheerful
