Useful stopover

We stayed here for one night in April 2013, and chose it deliberately because (apart from the price) it was in a different part of town, and a relatively short walk across the Parque del Retiro to Atocha to get our train south the next day. Location-wise there's not that much to do in the immediate area, but there was a good cafe just at the entrance to the hotel, and it was a very pleasant walk to the station from there through the park. So far as the hotel itself is concerned, the clue's in the name - it's a convention hotel, so geared up for big corporate events. The room was comfortable, although it might have been hot in summer; the staff were very pleasant, although our dealings with them were pretty minimal. Good price. I would stay here again, but only for the same reason - a one night stopover before getting the train (or plane) the next day.

Madrid under 100

Although with a window that offer close to zero natural light, the room is comfortable. The hotel is very well located (two blocks from subway, line 6 and six blocks from line 2, the one that connects directly to Sol). Internet is not free, you can have access to wifi after a fee close to the one charge in many american hotels. There is an internet place one block away in case you don't need constant access.

Old but clean, cheap but fee happy

nice staff, clean hotel. metro is near by. gave free maps of the city and metro. WiFi is NOT free, you have to pay 1 Euro for every 10 minute block of internet. No ironing board, paid 7 euros to have a shirt ironed. Walking distance to some action.

Good price-value full service hotel

Conveniently located close to the subway and a wonderful park makes for a good business hotel. It feels like a hotel built in the 70s and not renovated since, although it must have been a top-notch place back then. Therefore it looks a little "tired", but everything works (including internet), the staff is helpful, the rooms are quiet and clean and the beds are comfortable. I had a room looking onto a tiny "light shaft", which did not make for a nice view but ensured quietness.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Can't remember the name of the place, but there is an excellent "Cerveceria" on the corner of Calle de O'Donnell and Calle de Maiquez, easily recognizable by all the legs of "Jamon Serrano" hanging in the window. Good for a sandwich or a whole meal if you like local food.

Another Big Hotel That Offers Little Service

TERRIBLE!!!!! The front desk clerks were rude and provided no help nor service. I definitely will never stay here again and urge you not to waste your money by staying here either. In addition, our nightly entertainment consisted of listening through the thin walls of the rooms on either side of us to the other guest who were quietly talking in their rooms. In summary, it was the worst hotel experience I have had in many years!
