The reception area is fitted out in dark woods, and there's a comfortable lounge on the left with an orange and dark brown theme. When I visited there was tranquil oriental music playing with the sound of crickets chirping. The oriental theme is continued with exotic flowers and unusual materials for the curtains and sofas. The overall effect is welcoming, relaxing and swish, and I could happily have sat in the lounge all day.
The Hotel Madrid Vincci was refurbished in 2004. It has a coffee shop, laundry service, room service and free daily press.
The Hotel Madrid Vincci has a total of 85 rooms and 2 luxury suites. The rooms are equally as modern in design as the rest of the hotel and each one includes: interactive satellite TV, digital internet connection, telephone in each bathroom, safe, AC, minibar and hair dryer.
Some of the rooms with balconies have stunning views over the skyline of Madrid centre. You can also request no-smoking rooms.
The Hotel Madrid Vincci Centrum is just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Madrid, the Puerta del Sol. You can easily recognise the Puerta del Sol from the big 'Tio Pepe' sign that sits on top of one of the buildings. In this area you'll find the big 'El Corte Ingles' department store that also has a supermarket. There are plenty of clothes and shoe shops in Sol too - and you can pick up the tourist bus that takes you on a guided tour around the city.
If you turn right out of reception and then first right again, on the street that lead to the Plaza Canalejas you'll find 2 restaurants and a bar. Plaza Canalejas is 3 minutes walk away and here you'll see a post box, cash points, newsstand and more café bars with outdoor terraces.
To get to the metro, turn left out of the hotel and walk up to the street of Alcala. Turn left onto this street and a few metres down is the metro stop. There's also a Starbucks coffee bar here for muffins and a wide choice of coffees.
Booking your airport transport online in advance of your trip enables you to travel from Madrid-Barajas airport directly to the door of your hotel.
The online booked transfers listed below are not public transport operated services - which means they continue to run even if there is a public transport strike.
If you don't speak Spanish, and you are unfamiliar with Madrid, arranging your transport in advance will give you peace of mind and save you the trouble of working out the route yourself. You can either book a private transfer or a shared transfer.
Private transfer (online booking only)
A private transfer means that the vehicle that you have will be dedicated for you and your party only. The driver will be waiting for you at your arrivals gate with a sign with your name on it. Your driver will assist you with your luggage and take you to a private air conditioned vehicle to take you directly to your hotel. We have provided a booking link below.
Minibus transfer (online booking only)
A minibus option is cheaper than the private transfer and the vehicle is shared amongst other travellers. Unlike a private transfer the driver will not be waiting for you at the arrivals gate you would need to make your way to a meeting point.
Follow the link below to book either your private transfer or minibus transfer online.
