Sublime design meets postcard-perfect views at The Principal Madrid. Strategically located in the capital’s centre, ten minutes from the nearest railway station and within walking distance of two vibrant neighbourhoods (the hip Las Salesas and historic Hapsburg), this hotel makes high-street shopping, late-night bar-hopping and cultural days out irresistibly easy.
Featuring muted tones and contemporary design statements (think brass lampshades, simple yet classic artworks and leather egg-shaped chairs you’ll yearn to slide into), the hotel’s 76 rooms and suites are a display of comfort and style at their most chic and sleek. They come with spacious beds, sound systems and walk-in showers with massage jet panels, alongside large soundproofed windows from which to take in views of the bustling city beyond. Come nightfall, simply adjust the lighting and slip under 100% Egyptian cotton linens for a soundless sleep.
Just as impressive as the views, the hotel’s suitably charming facilities tick all boxes for a relaxing yet sophisticated city stay. Whether you’d rather soak up some sun on the seventh-floor terrace, or feast on modern Spanish cuisine and cocktails in the sixth-floor Atico restaurant, you’ll always have prime access to far-reaching vistas of the city’s rooftops. For complete relaxation, spend an indulgent day snacking on afternoon tea, testing out the dry sauna in the wellness centre, and catching z’s on a lounge chair among the solarium’s cypresses and olive trees. City breaks have never been quite as blissful.
