The outdoor terrace at our hotel in the Neighbourhood of Letters, the Vincci Soho 4* Madrid, will be offering, on 13 and 14 May, an exclusive tasting menu in honour of San Isidro, created by the famous team of chefs at Triciclo. The dishes, inspired by pure Castilian style, celebrate one of Madrid’s biggest festivals, and are based on the traditional flavours of the city, including, of course, fried squid baguette sandwiches and cocido stew, all reinterpreted by chefs Javier Goya, Javier Mayor and David Alfonso.
On 15 May Madrid will be in festive mood to celebrate the day of its patron saint (San Isidro or Saint Isidore) and Vincci Soho 4* (Calle del Prado 18) has the perfect plan to enjoy the festivities with the finest flavours. On 13 and 14 May you can enjoy, on the hotel’s outdoor terrace, a tasting menu created exclusively by Triciclo especially for San Isidro.

Triciclo, a special (no doubt about it) restaurant
Javier Goya, Javier Mayor and David Alfonso, after years of friendship both inside and outside of kitchens, were working together in El Faro, one of the restaurants for executives at Banco Santander’s Ciudad Financiera (Finance City), in Boadilla del Monte (Madrid). “It was the experience that helped show us the way after a number of years working in various leading restaurants”. Three years later, they decided to get together and launch their own project. The three chefs became partners and entrepreneurs and founded “the restaurant where we’d like to go to eat”.
For the project each one contributed, both in culinary knowledge and culinary preferences: bringing an extensive range of dishes, stews, sauces and flavours. Recipes from granny’s kitchen and tiny bars in the north of Spain. Above all they wanted cooking, real cooking, with saucepans moving on the hob and meat dishes that would need nearly a whole day in the oven and the freshest produce, arriving daily, so they could create a menu that wasn’t just seasonal, as of course it would be, but would have various suggestions that would change daily.
Vincci Soho 4*, Vincci’s most cultured hotel
Located in Madrid’s central Neighbourhood of Letters, the Vincci Soho 4* was made possible by a complex renovation project encompassing five protected historical buildings; the result was a property that’s utterly integrated with its surroundings, one that pleasantly surprises the visitor with its careful design, which is both restrained and elegant, in a modern, sophisticated style.
Right in the heart of historic Madrid, in the “Art Triangle”, bounded by the city’s main museums: the Prado, the Museo Reina Sofía and the Museo Thyssen, and just a stone’s throw from the Puerta del Sol and the Teatro Real. The Vincci Soho is in line to become one of the most emblematic buildings of the “Neighbourhood of Letters”.
It has 169 rooms, all perfect for every season having both air conditioning and heating, free safety deposit box, extensive mini-bar, wired internet and WiFi, satellite TV with Canal Plus, telephone and a welcome pack.
The hotel offers a buffet breakfast, bar-cafeteria, extensive public areas, an interior patio, outdoor terrace, private garage and a meetings and conference service.
Vincci Soho is a different kind of hotel: it offers a welcoming atmosphere of modernity, efficiency and style in a cutting-edge environment that’s perfect for today’s lifestyle.
