Situated in central Madrid, The Principal Madrid is very close to Puerta de Sol, the Círculo de Bellas Artes, Cibeles and Puerta de Alcalá.
The hotel is located on one of the city's most iconic streets, la Gran Vía; a lively street which has plenty to offer in terms of leisure, dining and shopping.
L'hôtel est tout nouveau, les chambres sont spacieuses. Le personnel est très attentif et très gentil. Le restaurant est excellent. En termes de position géographique, il est vraiment très central, au croisement des axes Gran Via et Paseo del Prado.Comment of B. Mohamed Karim , Morocco the 2015-02-18
"Location, Food, People!"
We chose to stay in the Principal Madrid for 5 nights and had absolutely no regrets. The location was great, as all the museums and the Retiro Park were within walking distance and a less than 15 minute walk would take you to Plaza Mayor. We had a junior suite overlooking the busy street but the soundproofing was amazingly effective as street traffic sounds were minimal and it was nice to watch the world go by once in a while. If at all, a minor gripe is that we would have preferred a proper armchair to sit in rather than the spanish leather chair in the room. Although we stayed for so many nights, my husband and I looked forward to the breakfasts here as the quality was very good and there were changes in an item or two daily, which give variety to the breakfast spread each day. The staff here had great attitude, were extremely helpful and the recommendations we obtained from the concierge particularly with regard to places to eat, were great. The girls in the breakfast room were extremely pleasant and helpful and took time to explain the items on offer whenever we asked. It's a boutique hotel, well worth considering especially if you are tired of the large hotels with the crowds at the buffet breakfast and thronging the reception areas. Highly recommended.
"Excellent Stay at The Principal Madrid"
We recently stayed here and had a stunning room over looking the Metropole. The staff were fabulous and everything was as we would of expected. We have fond memories of Madrid and would definitely recommend The Principal Madrid.
"Best hotel we have ever stayed in!"
We have travelled to many places and stayed in multiple hotels on our journeys, but this one was amazing. Upon arrival after a long train trip we were greeted by a beautiful entrance, a glass of sparkling water with ice and friendly check in staff. They were incredibly polite, spoke English well and made our first impression a good one. Our room was large and extremely comfortable. Everything worked! Bed was great and rooms were quiet. We had breakfast included and at our first visit we were greeted by a lovely lady who walked us through the breakfast room pointing out clearly where we could find everything. The waiting staff were also charming and hospitable. This hotel also has a rooftop garden that guests can use to have a drink or some food as well as have 360 degree views of Milan. The hotel was central to all of the tourist sights. The red bus was literally a 5 minute walk from the front door. We would have no hesitation in coming back to the Principal, in fact this is one of the reasons we enjoyed Madrid so much.
"Great 5 star hotel in a great location!"
The Principal is a wonderful 5 star hotel right in the center of Madrid and which deserves every one of those stars. The location is perfect, the staff was excellent and attentive, and our rooms (we had 2) were modern and well designed. We didn’t have any view from our rooms, but the open terrace (and bar) on the 7 floor, with its incredible views, more than made up for that. The restaurant on the 6th floor was also superb. The floor arrangement is a little odd, as the entrance is on street level (with a full time staff person on duty), and the lobby and reception are on the 6th floor. The rooms are on floors 2 to 5. This is not a problem, just something people considering this hotel should know. We had a great stay and loved every minute we spent at this hotel.
"Unbelievably attentive staff. Awesome roof terrace"
The location is ideal, just off gran Via, a stone's throw from the Prado, Puerta del Sol and Plaza Real. The hotel is well maintained, with modern/stylish decor. The rooms are a good size and come with all the conveniences needed. We loved the roof terrace - amazing views of the city. However, it's the friendly and attentive staff that made it so great for us. Would definitely return.
