Possibly the best hotel we’ve ever stayed in!”

A Lovely boutique hotel situated centrally in Madrid, only minutes walk from most major attractions in Centro. The moment you walk in, your luggage is carried to your room for you. Lovely smell of the entrance and lobby at all times. So many comfortable and classy seating areas, and multiple terraces to enjoy a nice view of downtown. The room was perfect. It was serviced twice a day and we’d often return to a pleasantly surprising small chocolate gift. Beauty Items were constantly and generously replenished . (Only con was the iron board was small and it wouldn’t stand properly). The number 0 on our room door 504 was faded, and we returned to our room within half a day and it was immediately shining new. The breakfast included both a buffet with many, many options, plus an a la carte menu (omlettes, eggs benny, pancakes) that is included in your breakfast. Their continuous attention to detail just makes you feel the Principal Madrid is a class above 5 stars. We will stay here again.

Wonderful stay”

I highly recommend the Principal Madrid Hotel. The location is exceptional. The hotel is in a central location, only a 10-20 minute easy walk to everything! If walking isnt for you, public transportation as well as ride share services are easily accessable. The staff is outstanding. Very available and accomodating. The roof top bar is beautiful as is the lounge/cocktail area on floor 6. Our room was comfortable and well kept. I will be returning to Madrid and The Principal Madrid Hotel will be my go to location.

Only recommendation is their very expensive breakfast which is not worth the price. I have stayed in more expensive hotels with better and cheaper breakfasts.

Everything was perfect. I rated 4 the facilities just because it is a small Hotel with limited space, and therefore not many options, but everything is nice, clean and well taken care of. The staff is amazing and goes the extra mile to fulfill any request. The location is in the very center of Madrid, within walking distance of all amenities. Do not forget to go to the rooftop!

Stylish public areas”

This was a return visit to this stylish boutique hotel in the heart of Madrid. Our room was well appointed but on the small side. The staff were excellent. The public areas are Lovely. Many walls are hung with old oil portraits, others with modern, Picasso-esque drawings. The restaurant is so popular we could not get a table (next time I’ll reserve in advance) but we had an outstanding meal nearby at Sra. Smith Restaurante.

This is an excellent and elegantly furnished hotel where you can walk to all the monuments. Elegantly appointed rooms and beautiful bathrooms. Water was very hot and nice pressure. Only issue is that I found my room very dark (LEDs were not powerful enough) and I couldn't see anything inside the closets. Plus there were no USB chargers inside the rooms.
