RIU Hotels & Resorts Opens New Hotel In Madrid

RIU Hotels & Resorts has opened a new hotel in Madrid called Hotel Riu Plaza España.

Located in the city's historic Edificio España building on Gran Vía, the four-star Hotel Riu Plaza España features 585 bedrooms, a gym, a heated outdoor pool, a restaurant, a lobby bar, and two sky bars as well as 17 meeting rooms and an events terrace.

"Enormous Satisfaction"

In a statement on the company's website, RIU Hotels & Resort CEO Luis Riu said, "Opening the Riu Plaza España brings us enormous satisfaction. For years, we searched for an opportunity to open an urban hotel in Madrid, so this chance to open one in the heart of the city, in such an iconic building, far exceeds all our expectations. The project has been complex and exciting. For two years, we have channelled top talent, all our experience and a lot of hard work into creating this new hotel that brings Edificio España back to life, and that we also hope will act as a lever for the surrounding area's regeneration."
