I stayed at the Emperador Hotel in Madrid a few weeks ago and chose to stay there based on some of the reviews provided on Trip Advisor. It was a mistake. The hotel is definitely in the heart of the city and that's about it. Because it is located in the city, there is a lot of noise from a nearby rooftop restaurant/bar which goes on very late into the night. I had to wear my earplugs both nights to sleep through the night.
Our room was located on the 9th floor and maybe due to the poor plumbing the water pressure was non-existent in the shower and the sink. One morning there was no warm/hot water available at all. We asked to be moved to a lower floor, they complied and this changed the plumbing considerably. The bidet was the only redeeming thing about the bathroom.
As other reviews have stated there is no free wifi in the room. We thought this may not be an issue since the lobby has free wifi but there is not a lot of room to just stand around looking at your smartphones in the lobby...
Overall, I would not stay at this hotel again.
