Hotel Husa Princesa Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Arguelles, Madrid, Spain

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • In a less touristy area that is walking distance from attractions
  • Spacious rooms with flat-screen TVs and marble bathrooms
  • Indoor heated pool and fitness center
  • Restaurant, bar, and cafe offer many dining options
  • Large windows in rooms let in lots of natural light
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • No spa (but in-room treatments are available and there is a sauna)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

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).

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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.

  • 21-minute drive from the Madrid-Barajas International Airport
  • On Calle Princesa, a major shopping street
  • 6-minute walk to Comillas Pontifical University
  • 7-minute walk to the Templo de Debod, an ancient Egyptian temple (donated to Madrid) with scenic views of the city
  • 8-minute walk to the Cerralbo Museum, an art museum housed in a historic mansion
  • 11-minute walk to Arco de La Victoria monument
  • 12-minute walk to West Park, lined by restaurants
  • 3-minute drive or 11-minute ride via public transportation to the Museo de America
  • 7-minute drive or 14-minute ride via public transportation to the National Archaeological Museum
  • 10-minute drive or 20-minute ride via public transportation to the Prado Museum

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.
