I have a Lemond Revmaster spin bike and it is SILENT with no vibrations as it's belt driven. All you hear is your breathing. They cost about £1k new but you can get them on ebay as I did.

They weigh about 50kg or so, so the biggest problem you'll have is getting it up the stairs.
Can you get any data from it, e.g built in sensors? Or can you add a speed sensor and derive power via a published power curve?
No, which is why I use rollers (with Trainerroad) and the Revmaster is now a clothes stand. It satisfies the silent criteria though and is fine if you only use HR.
