Just visiting

Like many old and rather expensive hotels in Europe, this one also needs to upgrade its water & sewer systems, and its facilities. The staff is inatentive at best, and well below theircounterparts in terms of service in Europe and the US. They need to learn how others do it to back up its four star claim. I've gotten better service and quality from lots of roadside hotels and motels in North America for a fraction of the price. The front desk and lobby are rather uninviting; dark and cramped. The only good thing is its location if you want to stay near historic sights to visit.

Vincci Capitol

Up until our last night, we had no complaints about this hotel. After our last night out in the city, we came back to a broken air conditioner. We called the front desk and was told that the techs were no longer available after 11pm. We slept in a stuffy room. With the window open...it was noisey. Needless to say, it was not a happy following day. But the good news is...we would actually stay at this hotel again. The Metro dropped us off directly at the hotel. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating....got there early in the am, was offered a smoking room, opt to wait, they had no problem holding onto our bags as we peaked at the city. The non-smoking room was worth the wait. Yes, the room was small, but large enough to spend 10 days. Room was spotless everyday. Had nice cold air until the last night. Great water pressure and hot water....not always found in Madrid. A big plus for us, was the refrigerator. A supermarket is located North of the hotel...about a 2 minute walk...great for snacks, extra fruit, bread, wine, etc. The roof decks provided us with spectacular views of the city. The breakfast bar looked festive, but a bit high on its price. Plenty of supplies(shampoo,toothbrush...) offered by the hotel, if you forgot to pack. Do not expect soft plush towels...kind of hard and stiff...but clean. Serve our purpose. Any questions we had, the staff had answers. Spoke English.....and always with welcoming smiles. The hotel rooms are sound proof, great when your in the heart of the city. Felt very safe, despite what others have written. buses, metro all outside the door. Not only is construction outside the door, the whole entire city is under constuction. If you can't look past that, stay clear from Madrid. The hotel served its purpose for us and hope this help you decide where to stay in Madrid. As for a couple who had planned on staying in a Hostal or Pension...this hotel offered much more for your money.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Supermarket 2 blocks north on your right. Locals shop there. Bono (ten use of metro) is a great deal to get yourself around the city. If you enjoy walking...everything is pretty close. If you stray too far, just hop on the Metro back to the hotel.

Great Location

The hotel is located in the heart of Madrid just off Plaza Callao and is in a excellent location. Most of the sights are walkable from there although the metro is located in the Plaza should anyone wish to explore further a field The hotel amienties are basic: the lobby is small and a little dark. There is a spa area operated by another company which has to be booked in advance which lasted an hour max although seemed very expensive for what was being offered. There is not pool or gym. The bar area is very big and comfy although mainly empty and expensive to drink there. Buffet breakfast is also available in a room adjacent although it was never tried. Not sure if there is a lunch/dinner service Given the central location there are many other places close by to have breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks that represent greater value for money and variety not to mention a better ambience Rooms are fairly art decco style and interestingly laid out. Comfortable and clean with all basic facilities. In our particular room, we had a problem with the bathroom door - the internal machanism of the handle broke so maintainace had to fix it. The shower screen door did not shut so water from the shower spilled on to the bathroom floor making it extremley wet and slippy. Lucky there was a shower in the bath to use as an alternative. The main door of the room was also lose: when anyone slammed a door in the corridor it would jar our room door. The corridor was pretty noisey and people tended to smoke in there - the smoking ban has not come into force in Spain fully yet .. often we could smell smoke that penentrated through the door seals which was unpleasent especially in the morning. The Hotel also claimed to have WiFi through out but this is not the case. There is a internet point in the room to connect via a cable with a lap top although if you are using another device, like a phone, there are WiFi points around the city which are free. The internet is also free at the hotel

Average attention to Detail.

The Hotel has been refurbished in a clean modern manner but the designer has replaced practicality with trendy fixtures and fittings. The shower head looked good but was useless, the water would stop at peak hour when too many rooms were showering, the plugs were broken as was the shower mixer. The lighting was poor so good luck in the bathroom when your shaving )))but sometimes its better not to see too many details! The reception was understaffed so getting information was a chore. I don't think the designers have stayed in too many hotels as there was little space for suitcases. On a positive note the location was great, the design was slick and modern, the rooms were clean and the internal rooms adjacent to the light well were really quiet.

Over priced

I requested a non-smoking room and was given a smoking room. I asked for a standard full bed and they gave me two double beds pushed together..they wouldn't change our room. When we asked information about trains the attendant looked angry and continued to check his watch. You are only paying for location. There was no wifi unless you paid for it so we were unable to check on our flights. Overall just not a wonderful experience.

If you are planning a trip to Spain only spend minimal time in Madrid...is is basically just a city. The museums were beautiful but the city as a whole is not as beautiful as Toledo, Segovia, Mallorca and Barcelona.

It's the heart of the city alright

Very good location for Plaza de Espana, Plaza Mayor, El Prado, Thyssen. You can walk if you are fit and enjoy the energy of the area, as I do. My friend being less athletic, preferred cabs which are magically available any time. The Metro is RIGHT in front of the hotel (Callao or Gran Via stops, green or blue lines; you can get to Atocha Train station in 3 stops, for easy high-speed trips to Toledo and Segovia). Gran Via at Callao is somewhat like a small Times Square at night, with throngs of 20-somethings roaming and partying; good shopping, fun plazas and bars are very close. I give the hotel 3 stars, because the lobby was tiny, antisocial, and dark; there were 2 filthy, resident homeless people planted like parentheses in front of the hotel 24/7, the breakfast was overpriced but OK, the room was noisy, with impossibly dark lighting, and the staff was a bit sullen. The "superior" room was a weird layout, but nice. After night #1 of sirens and partiers on Friday, we should have asked to be moved to a high room away from noise. I speak near fluent spanish; do NOT expect any of staff to speak any english; especially the night staff.

Europe around the Hoildays

The hotel is centrally located, near to shopping, eateries and the Metro while being w/in walking distances of sights. Since it is centrally located, it is in the heart of the city. If you are looking for a more quiet, laid back setting, this is not the hotel for you.

There is a Tourist Information Booth about 50 ft around the corner from the hotel. They will take the time to discuss day trips, local sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, guided tours and more with you. It's great when it's your turn but when you're waiting for your turn, it can take about 10 mins.

Low-budget stay in the centre of Madrid

Stayed here for an extended weekend with friends. Quiet and clean rooms and friendly staff (still bathroom would need some restoration). Breakfast was very abundant.
