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!

Family Christmas trip

The location is great as it is in a very nice part of Madrid. There is a variety of transport from taxis to buses and metro. It is also within walking distance of the hub of Madrid - some 40 minutes to Sol. The front desk and cleaning staffs are very helpful and professional. The food is excellent and the restaurant staff was professional. The only minus in that department is that the hours listed for room service did not match when calling room service, at least for breakfast. The walls are rather thin and I found the room I occupied this time around to be noisy at night. We could hear what went on next door - doors, even closet doors being closed and furniture being moved. Last time we were in the disabled wing and that area was quiet. I would stay there again in spite of a couple of glitches this time around.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

If you want excellent "cocido", a dished eaten as three courses - soup, vegetables and meats - popular in Madrid and other places, such as Leon, go to Casa Carola. There are two in Madrid and one is located in the Salamanca neighborhood, not too far from Hotel Convencion. For 29 euros you have excellent cocido, a small appetizer and a choice of desserts plus a glass of "cava" or Spanish champagne. Other wines and sodas are extra.

Good for the price...

If your not worried about having a luxurious room and won't be spending much time in your hotel anyway, this is the place for you. The rooms are a little on the small side and the beds are somewhat stiff. The hotel is old fashioned but does have Wi-fi and a business center. Staff was nice and helpful. Location was good, about a 20 min walk downtown or a 5 min cab ride. Overall, if your spending a few days days in Madrid, check this hotel out. It won't burn a hole in your pocket.

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.
