The Principal Madrid Hotel
Since opening in spring 2015, the Principal Madrid has vaulted to the top of the city's social scene due to its spectacular views over some of the city’s most iconic and ebullient buildings. The restaurant and lobby lounge occupy the top floors, where every balcony, nook, and niche with a view is given over to dining and imbibing. The lobby’s décor and off-street location create a private club vibe that is carried into the guest rooms, with their gray carpets, walls with simple wood accents, and clusters of black-and-white art on the walls. Bathrooms are luxuriously large, though not all have tubs. The Principal Madrid also has a decent fitness room and a treatment area for facials and massages.
