The Principal Madrid Hotel

A modern-day landmark at Madrid’s vibrant cultural core

On the edge of fashionable Gran Vía in Madrid stands The Principal. Beyond the magnificent façade is a boutique hotel that oozes cosmopolitan style. Where a trend-setting restaurant, skyline-skimming bar and soothing rooms await. While the sights and sounds of the city buzz outside, inside The Principal you’ll discover instant calm.

The look and feel is sophisticated townhouse meets urban retreat. The Wellness Suite is made for 21st-century city breaks, with spa treatments to unwind post-sightseeing. Discover creative haute cuisine and panoramic views at Ático – one of the city’s must-visit restaurants. Then make a beeline for Terraza. From this glass-fronted bar and urban garden you can sip gin, listen to music and watch the sun set beyond the rooftops of Madrid.

Night and day, Madrid is brimming with things to do. And The Principal Madrid puts you at the heart of it all. Outside the hotel door is Gran Vía, the place to discover boutiques, tapas bars and theatres. A short walk away you’ll find inspiring museums such as Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofía. You can get a sense of the city’s history at Puerta de Alcalá, Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace. Then seek out one of Madrid’s parks – Campo del Moro and El Retiro are nearby.


Enjoy your stay!

Independent Minds: Pau Guardans

Born and bred in Barcelona, the rich cultural heritage of the Catalan capital runs in the blood of Pau Guardans, owner of Único Hotels. With a penchant for the Art Deco era, Guardans has carefully cultivated his own Spanish empire of reimagined early 20th century buildings in Barcelona and Madrid, which have been elegantly modernised whilst keeping the glamour of the roaring twenties very much alive. Taking a more serene step into Balearic island life with his latest venture in Mallorca, the Único Hotels portfolio is proving to be just as panoramic as its hotels’ views.

Comfort in Madrid

The Principal is a lovely hotel, perfectly situated close to the major museums. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and quiet. What made the stay truly special was the young and energetic staff, always kind and helpful.

Food And Drinks

Up on the sixth floor you’ll find Ático. Its sophisticated, ultra-modern décor matches the cuisine that’s overseen by double Michelin-starred Madrid chef Ramón Freixa. Here, dishes give the flavours of classic Spain a contemporary twist. You can pair food with skyline views and cocktails outdoors at Terraza. Or book a private dining experience for all of this, one-on-one.

La Terraza

Filled with greenery with views over the most emblematic buildings in Madrid- La Terraza is the ideal setting for enjoying the unique vistas and signature cocktails from our team of in-house bartenders under the watchful eye of Manel Vehi- one of the most renowned barmen in Spain- with options that are as creative as they are daring.

Atico by Ramon Freixa

In an iconic location just where Gran Via begins discover ATICO. A delicate- luxurious space on the sixth floor of The Principal Madrid Hotel. It is not only an inviting restaurant under the seal of prestigious chef Ramon Freixa- 2 Michelin stars at his other restaurant in the city- with a meticulous but uncomplicated culinary selection you can enjoy any day or for dinner with friends. Classical dishes from Spanish cuisine updated with highly attractive flavours and exquisite modern-presentation

Spa

When the sun shines, soak it up at the Solarium – a lounger-lined terrace with an overflow pool and cooling outdoor showers. Or treat yourself and a partner to a luxury massage made for two.
