Good and Bad

Hotel located comfortably to everything. Madrid Metro system is fantastic; also, very disabled-person equipped: escalator or elevator at every station. Took Metro from airport to hotel. Hotel service people not very friendly, but that seems to be all over Madrid, with couple of exceptions. Had to call for towels and soap, but the room was very clean and the price was right. Had to pay BIG for Internet and then two hours after connection the whole floor's connection went out and had to ask for a refund.

Convenient

It's convencion hotel as the name clearly states. Expect a lot of traffic, but the hotel is conveniently (walking distance) located to most touristy places. Staff friendly and helpful. Shuttle bus to/from the airport less then 5 mins walk. enjoyed, will book to stay there again

Average hotel

Room was a bit dingy with a strand of hair in the bathroom and a non-functioning light. Good location. Overall OK.

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.

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.

A nice hotel to be

Nice facilites, nice location...more importantly, nice people. I found there are many staffs are more than 50 or 55Y, but very nice manner, though sometime we understand they may react slightly slow, but that's reasonable and just a smile will show they are willing to help.

Perfect Location!

The hotel was located right a the center of the action in Madrid. Blocks from El Retiro, Cibeles and Neptune. Museums and Goya street. Transportation was perfect when you couldn`t walk to your destination. Bus stop to the Airport was a mere 200 m cost was just 5 euros per person. Good food and excellent cafeterias. great restaurants a few blocks from the hotel
