Surrounded by boutiques, as it stands on a main shopping street in Arguelles
Hotel Husa Princesa is located in the small Arguelles district, within walking distance of shops, museums, landmarks, and public transportation. The hotel gets its name from the street it sits on: Calle Princesa, which is a shopper's paradise. This street is lined with numerous boutiques, as well as some restaurants.
Though mainly a residential neighborhood, Arguelles is known for its great shopping. Several tourist attractions, such as Templo de Debod and West Park, are also located nearby. It is a particularly popular district during the summertime when the cafes offer outdoor seating along the park.
The capital of Spain is a vibrant, multicultural city located right in the center of the country. The Cuatro Torres business area's additions to the city skyline (four sleek towers, including a hotel and corporate offices) give an idea of what Madrid is rapidly becoming: a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city -- albeit one that preserves its century-old traditions.
The 275-room Hotel Husa Princesa is an upscale property in a good location within walking distance of popular attractions, but removed from the city's congested, uber-touristy areas. Though the hotel touts its business services (business center with secretarial services and several meeting rooms), couples and families may enjoy features such as the heated pool and various dining options. Rooms are spacious but decor varies: Modern ones have neutral tones and sleek furniture, while more traditional ones have red-and-gold color schemes, massive reproductions of famous paintings, and classic furnishings that may seem dated to some. This property is not over-the-top luxury, but it provides almost all of the amenities one would expect from a four-pearl hotel (aside from a spa).
