The Principal Madrid

Madrid, Spain

The Principal Madrid

The Principal Madrid Hotel is much more than a modern luxury boutique hotel. Its singular location, extraordinary views, unique décor and bespoke services make it “the hotel of the capital” preceded by the success of its sister hotels: the Hotel Único Madrid and the Grand Hotel Central in Barcelona. Together they form a collection of independent luxury hotels that share a common spirit and simple philosophy which has converted them into a lifestyle brand: historical buildings with soul, personality and character, in prime locations, bespoke services and strong links with the cities and neighbourhoods where they are situated.
