The Principal Madrid is a wonderful hotel. The building is beautiful. The rooms are spacious, with comfortable beds and furniture, and a large bathroom complete with full sized shampoo/conditioner/body wash/lotion. The rooftop terrace is a wonderful place to take in the city. Lots of good shopping and restaurants in walking distance. The staff is friendly and goes above and beyond!

This is a lovely hotel that is well located in the center of Madrid. The staff was friendly and very professional. We did not care for the room as it was not very spacious. The bathroom did not have a vanity for storage.

Property is nicely located and has a very nice rooftop bar/restaurant. We stayed their twice in May. We were in room 403 on our first trip, which was both nice with extra windows and high enough to avoid street noise. On our second stay, we were in room 202, which had only a single window yet was noisy. I would recommend eating at the hotel restaurant, Atico. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced.
