From our entry the staff were all polite, helpful and accommodating. Upgrade to suite (minimal charge) on Gran Via close to shops, restaurants, museums. The front desk staff booked out train tickets to Toledo, old walled city, perfect day. The area is great for walking.More

About
Description
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, the stunning Terraza More (rooftop terrace,7th floor) with what may be the best views in Madrid, and its Ático (penthouse, 6th floor) where avant-garde haute cuisine meets classic cocktails in a space with the best music are reasons enough not to miss the opportunity of discovering this renovated building, now one of the capital’s must-see sights. The hotel’s impressive Ático and Terraza boast the best panoramic views of downtown Madrid. In both, amid large, lush garden areas, you can sip a cocktail or order from the menu concocted by Ramón Freixa (2 Michelin stars), soak up some sun in the Solarium or enjoy the sound of the overflow pool and the best ambient music or our outdoor showers in summer… and always with the finest service to ensure that your every wish is granted.

No unfortunately. There is a large water feature on the roof of the hotel with a bar and several 'beach' lounges close by. You may be able to "splash around" in the water feature but it is not a swimming pool.
