The Principal Madrid Hotel is much more than a luxurious modern boutique hotel. Its prime location in the heart of Madrid, its exclusive entrance, its 76 elegantly appointed rooms and suites, the stunning rooftop terrace with what are probably the best views in Madrid, and its atico (Penthouse) where avant-garde haute cuisine meets classic cocktails in a multifunctional, laid-back atmosphere that is the perfect blend of loft, modern club and glamorous hotel with original architecture and elements from 1917.

Dining

Atico & La Terraza
These two elegant, laid-back, multi-purpose spaces are the heart of the hotel, with sweeping vistas that offer you an unobstructed birds-eye view of the city skyline. In both, amid large, lush garden areas, you can sip a cocktail or savour an order from the menu concocted by Ramon Freixa (2 Michelin stars), soak up some sun in the solarium or enjoy the overflow pool and outdoor showers in summer

An spotty stay in Madrid

When we arrived at the Hotel we had to carry our own luggage since there was no-one to help us with the baggage. An unfriendly male attendant checked us in. The room overlooked the back with construction going on. The bathroom shower door opened the wrong way making it dangerous to get in and out of the shower. No blankets on beds. A let down. Later, we met an Argentine Concierge that was corteous and helpful, a "rarity" considering the other front desk staff members. After going to Lisbon and returning 3 days later, I had a bigger room that cost me double, no bathtub, only shower, no blankets, and room had an intense mildew smell that made it hard to rest. Nice view from balcony this time. Tried Top roof restaurant. Nice breakfast, alltough dinner was not very good. Nice staff and very a ttentive service but the snails tasted of mildew and the duck was tough and tasteless. Mentioned to waiter. Nothing was done. Will not be going back again. Hotel needs to concentrate on details and have more employees like the Argetine concierge in order to make this a warmer Hotel. Also, get rid of the mildew problem.
