San Lorenzo de El Escorial is located at the heart of the Sierra of Guadarrama and only 50 Km from Madrid (Note: El Escorial and San Lorenzo de El Escorial are two different towns 1.5 Km away). This Historic-Artistic town grew up around the Royal Monastery founded by Felipe II in the 16th century and now declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Getting There:

Traveling by airplane: We would recommend to take a taxi from the Airport Madrid Barajas to Moncloa metro/bus station, and there to board the 661 bus line (Madrid-Moncloa to San Lorenzo de El Escorial). This "green bus" (color of suburban buses) will drop you within 30m of the Hotel. The taxi from Barajas to Moncloa should cost - about 20 Euro. The bus fare is about 6 Euro, with the ticket being purchased on the bus.

An alternative option is to take the suburban rail. First take...

Metro (Underground)
Line 8: Airport Madrid Barajas - Nuevos Ministerios
Line diagram, timetables and fares

And then, take...

Suburban Rail
Line C8a: Atocha - Nuevos Ministerios - El Escorial
Run 5:47 am - 23:32 pm

But unlike the bus it does not go to San Lorenzo, and leaves you at the train station 1.5 km short of the hotel. However, a local bus from the train station to the bus station provides a regular service, synchronized with train arrivals, from 7:00 to 22:30 local time.

Finally, the third option is to take a taxi from the airport to San Lorenzo de El Escorial, with an estimated price of 65 Euro.
