THE PRINCIPAL HOTEL – MADRID, SPAIN
The Principal Madrid, located in the heart of the Spanish capital, on Gran Via more precisely, was inspired by fashion and lifestyle gurus while celebrating Spanish historic heritage. The result is that of a refined and timeless design.
Housed in 1917 Spanish Renaissance style building, the hotel is a consonance with unique Art Nouveau and Art Deco façades. The interiors, signed by the designer Pilar Garcia Neto and the team of the Barcelona historical legacy, by preserving the original high ceilings, stained glass windows, marble floors and the ironwork of the building.
The hotel’s 76 rooms and suites display an elegance characterized by muted colors and high-quality textiles, where a sophisticated chic atmosphere is created, evocate of a 21st century Manhattan loft meets British clubhouse.
The principal Madrid’s romantically rounded corner building spans seven floors and is crowned by a sprawling 400sqm rooftop terrace, offering 360 degrees panoramic views over the city. With the sky nearly within reach, The Terraza garden is lush with beautiful trees, a fountain and an observation deck to take the most out of these stunning views.
Spread over to the top two floors, one can find Ático, a sublime sanctuary where the gastronomy takes on the main stage. The Michelin star winner, chef Ramon Freixa drew the menu, offering very appealing courses. For starters, cold strawberry soup with agitated mimicry, followed by a carefully groomed salad with pods, papaya, and whitebait, among other choices. As the main course, one can challenge their senses with peanut butter marinated with quinoa and seaweed, for instance. As a dessert, a treat for the lickerish, 100% chocolate.
