Hotel The Principal
The principal is well located by Gran Via and just a five-minute walk to landmarks such as Cibeles and Madrid’s iconic museums. This upscale boutique hotel has exquisite décor and a refined environment, offering a smart restaurant, an overflow pool and very attentive staff. We particularly liked the rooftop terrace called Terraza with good views of Madrid. Rooms are standard in size and elegantly decorated in sober colors, design leather chairs and the ones facing the street have large windows. The junior suites are especially likeable, brighter, more spacious and offer views of Madrid’s famous Gran Via.
