I was put up at the Vincci Centrum for a short conference in Madrid and overall had a relatively enjoyable experience but one that left me with mixed emotions. The hotel is in a nice location, just a short walk from Puerta del Sol, Santa Ana square, the Prado Museum area, and Retiro Park. The staff was very nice and welcoming, doing such things as making dinner reservations at a nice place nearby and being very polite and helpful during the tasty breakfast buffet.
In talking to other guests who attended my conference and stayed at this hotel, the rooms seemed to entail a bit of a tradeoff. There appear to be some rooms such as mine which feel quite spacious and have nice natural light, but are facing the busy street and are honestly quite noisy with street noise. I had an important presentation one morning and was up half the night before due to the noise from traffic, horns and sirens, and the jarring click-clack of cars frequently running over what must be a loose manhole cover. I'm usually a deep sleeper, but falling asleep took so long that at 1:30am I was *this* close to going down to the lobby to try to get a quieter room to get some rest before my important 9am presentation (for which I faced the double whammy of being jetlagged for anyway). In talking with other guests, it seems that the rooms off the street are much quieter, but feel smaller and darker. So depending on your preferences, be aware of this fact. Also, in my own experience and in talking to other guests, the in-room internet connection was a bit erratic at best.
Overall, a nice place ... I just wish the windows were more soundproof and the internet connection more consistent given the price (about 140 euros a night in late May ... not ridiculous, but also not cheap either). The room itself, service, and the location would merit 4~4.5 stars ... but the poor sleep quality make me rate my experience at 3 stars and would have me looking for another location to stay the next time I return to this lovely city.
