We stayed at the Principal Apartment last month and thoroughly enjoyed it that we extended one more night (we actually wanted to extend 2 more nights but someone else was checking in!).
Check-in was flawless -- we drove from the airport and it wasn't hard to find at all. Parking structure was very close too. From the moment we walked in, we were mesmerized and in awe. The apartment was beautiful, airy, spotless, impeccably and beautifully designed, and equipped with so many thoughtful amenities. The reception even helped us with our luggage. We immediately felt at home.
El Corte Ingles is only a couple blocks away, where in the basement they have Club Gourmet for really nice jamon, cheese, you name it. The apartment itself is in Eixample, which is a very nice area with many cute bakeries serving delicious pastries for breakfast. It is walking distance to Passeig de Gracia where the luxury shopping is and also many boutiques, Las Ramblas, etc -- it is SO strategic we were very grateful of it.
The back patio had a funky view of the other apartment buildings around it, but the designer is SO good that you still feel that it's a slice of heaven lounging outdoors in the patio. The bed, the tub, the shower were all amazing. We especially love our big tub in the middle of the master bedroom.
We highly recommend staying at Principal! You will truly love it.
