We were attending a friend's retirement party not far from El Escorial and stayed at the Florida as it was the only hotel we could find with accommodation.
Other reviewers had summed up the hotel adequately so our expectations were not high and that proved to be the case.
Our big issue was, after booking a double room, being given a single room with a double bed crammed into it (without a word of apology from the staff- perhaps they thought we would not notice) .
Fortunately we did not spend much time at the hotel. If returning to El Escorial I would certainly try to find a different hotel.
