Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Principal Madrid Hotel is moments from the Puerta del Sol on the Gran Vía, in the heart of Madrid.

Rooms at The Principal Madrid Hotel

The rooms have high ceilings, original iron railings and wide windows. They have been sleekly designed with a New York loft aesthetic in mind. Guests staying in the suites are treated to early check-in and late check-out (subject to availability), and an extra large shower in the bathroom, complete with massage jets.

Food & Drink

On the top floor of the Principal Madrid Hotel is Atico, headed by prominent chef, Ramon Freixa (who has two Michelin stars). Meanwhile, the La Terraza bar not only serves innovative cocktails in a modern-chic setting, it also provides unbeatable vistas over the city's skyline.


After a day's sightseeing, reward those weary legs with a massage in the Wellness Suite or head to the rooftop solarium and relax with a good book. 

Activities at The Principal Madrid Hotel

Sightseeing is a must when you stay at The Principal Madrid, as it is very close to the famous museums: Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen, as well as Puerta del Sol, Fine Arts Circle, Cibeles and Puerta de Alcalá.
