We recently stayed 3 nights at the Vincci Capitol. The hotel is situated on Gran Via and all of Madrid's tourist attractions are within walking distance.(eg: palace is 10 minute walk away or take the 2 day city bus tour which is very good value for money) The standard rooms are small but we upgraded to a much bigger superior room for €10 per night. The breakfast is good so it's well worth booking b&b. The staff were helpful and very friendly.
Overall the hotel was very good value for the money. If we return to madrid we would definitely use this hotel again for a short break.
WARNING ABOUT TRAVELING ON THE METRO REGARDING PICKPOCKETS.
I used the metro to get from the airport to the hotel I wish I used a taxi because there are pickpockets everywhere. I was bumped and shoved all the time on the metro and they had their hands everywhere and Yes they eventually had my wallet. They have a big problem with pickpockets in Madrid, we have never seen so much police presence on the streets in any city we have visited as we saw in Madrid. But even after losing my wallet to these scum we still had a great time, so much to do, so much to see, restaurants & bars are great. So just be aware what's around you and have a great time.
