Recommended by Lonely Planet, the Vincci Capitol hotel is better known among the locals as a cinema. It's situated in the landmark Capitol Cinema building, one of Madrid's best-known examples of Art Deco architecture. The décor is still on the glitzy side, and some of the rooms have larger-than-life stills from films splashed across the walls.
The location near the Plaza del Callao is ideal. Right on the Gran Via, there is easy access to the metro and it's a short walk to Puerta del Sol. It's a 10-minute walk to the Royal Palace, and 20 minutes on foot to El Retiro Park.
Back at the hotel, there's a 9th-floor sun terrace and bar, and the sleek Bar Reims downstairs has views of the Gran Via. A continental breakfast buffet is served in the morning and room service is available until 11pm. There is no on-site restaurant, but there are plenty of options nearby, including the highly recommended La Taberna de Mister Pinkleton (a live flamenco restaurant). There is also a Jacuzzi and spa area for guests to use.
The bedrooms are well sized and have wooden floors, air conditioning, a mini bar, dressing gowns and slippers. The higher floors have the best views and some upgraded rooms have terraces. The Skylight room is particularly impressive. Set in the tower of the original Cine Capitol building, it is split over two floors with two bathrooms, a large bedroom with a circular bed and city views. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
