... hallway, down a narrow flight of stairs into a stone (ie: soundproof) cave with a small stage at the front. Three individuals perform together; guitar, vocals and dance. Little did we know, that in flamenco the dancer creates the beat and it is the job of the guitarist and vocalist to follow suit and create the music to go with the dance. All in all, it was a beautiful experience that likely won't be duplicated!
... from the previous one; it was an apartment style and very nice with a stove, microwave, and all the mod cons (64 E per night). Excited, we revised our grocery plans to add in bacon and eggs (which are often not refrigerated in Europe). I picked up another half bottle of wine at the same time, and we stopped for one last hot chocolate. Dinner that night was at casa Lucas (40.5 E for both of us) and we finished off with one last ...

Anyway as the anxiousness levels start to rise and thinking we were in some serious ****, they just tell us to go on our way. Just like that…I'm still not sure what they wanted. So we continue our journey, albeit a little dazed and confused, to the hire place around the corner. Not the easiest place to find (but according to our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Vincci Soho Madrid
I recently booked a 3 night break with my wife for what I thought would be a nice, quiet hotel. Unfortunately only 50% of my expectations were met!
Very nice hotel
This hotel is very new and as such as a few teething problems. However it is still a superb hotel in a great location, beautifully finished and the staff were very friendly, paticularly Lee (the assistant manger) who is english. He could not do enough for us and his recommendations of where to go were spot on.
Bless its heart, this hotel strives for high style and luxury, but it doesn't entirely meet its aspirations. It does get close and after they work the kinks out, maybe the hotel really will be as precious and hip as it wants to be. In any case, at around 115 Euros per night (incl. taxes), it's still a terrific value for location, space, and "cool" design.
I just got back from a stay at the Vincci Soho. It's in an awesome location - a short walk to everything and a very short walk to the Prado, Thyssien, Plaza de Santa Ana, and oddly, the Church of Scientology.
The Vincci Soho is located on a small, quiet street 5 minutes' walk from the Thyssen, 10 minutes' walk from the Prado, and 12 minutes to the Reina Sophia--superb location, yet very quiet for this area.Since it just opened, there are many services which are not quite right yet--the front desk is seriously understaffed. But the prices are very low for a trendy boutique hotel with high style in this area. Here are the tradeoffs:
The hotel is just recently undergo renovation so it is very new and the design is great. The check in process is a bit slow, our room is located on the second floor and it has to transfer lift . One of the really problem is the hotel is located at a inner small street it is very difficult to find. We lose our way back to hotel one night after we go out for dinner. It is 8 min walk from the metro station, a bit far away.
The staff is very helpful
Thoroughly Enjoyed Stay at Soho
Myself and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel, although the hotel was new and not quite finished, the staff could not have been more helpfull, The hotel was very clean, staff were very attentive to all our needs, the food was excellent.
The accomodation was great, was very quiet at night, when I go to Madrid again I will stay at this hotel again.
Not Finished Yet
I tried to stay at this hotel for two night but when we arrived they told us they had only been open for 6 days and therefore there was no parking available, no smoking rooms and no internet access, all of which were shown on their website.
The final straw was seeing decorating still going on in the corridors then the reception was unable to give us keys that opened the bedroom doors. We left and went to the NH Nacional before we got chance to see the room. The NH was great!
I think they should not have opened yet!
This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had. I travel to Europe often for business. I checked in and I was already worried- the customer service is little if non existent. I went to my room, to find it musty and dark. The walls are built super thin- so you hear everything and I am a heavy sleeper. I never slept all 3 nights. I changed rooms the next night to find a roach in my room. I changed rooms again to find another roach. Unfortunately there were no other hotels in Madrid available due to a conference.
