Re: That pesky word, "convenable"....

That's it Sweets, more to do with behaviour, what is done or not done, such as to turn up à une heure convenable or to dress convenablement.

The hotel's situation cannot be convenable, more pratique, bien situé or facile d'accès.  It's not easy to explain, but I think you've got it now.
