Newly opened in March 2016, Vincci The Mint is a smart design hotel, within walking distance of Madrid's Art Triangle in the city centre.
The hotel is on the Gran Vía, just around the corner from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum -- "one of the most extraordinary private collections of predominantly European art in the world" (Lonely Planet). It is 15 minutes' stroll from the Museo del Prado, which showcases art collected by the Spanish royal family, and a 20-minute walk from the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía -- "a must for art fans", says Time Out, near Madrid's Atocha train station.
The hotel has a rooftop terrace overlooking the Gran Vía, where there is an outdoor pool and a foodtruck for snacks (open May-October). There's also Gastrobar on the ground floor, where breakfast is served, and drinks and snacks are available.
The hotel has 88 brightly coloured rooms, each with air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi. Deluxe rooms are larger than the more basic Double rooms, and have views of the street.
