The Hotel Riu Plaza España opened its doors in August 2019 in the Edificio España which is the 8th tallest building in Madrid, Spain, and one of the city's most iconic buildings. It is an example of 20th-century Spanish architecture built in the neo-baroque style. Located only approx. 20 km away from the Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez (MAD) airport. This hotel is ideal for both leisure and business travel. The 584 modern designed, elegant decorated rooms with free Wi-Fi offer maximum comfort as well as relaxation. In the 17 stylish and modern conference rooms you can successfully organize your events and meetings. For gastronomy lovers, the guests can enjoy a buffet restaurant, as well as a Sky Bar and Lobby Bar for snacks & drinks. Visit the reinvented rooftop. The 360° terrace now has a new Gastrobar called El Edén and yet another attraction on top of its spectacular views of the capital: a transparent viewpoint looking over the recently inaugurated Plaza de España square. This glass balcony that hangs at a height of 100 metres above the ground gives our most intrepid visitors a wonderful panorama of the southern area of the capital.

We went for a mini break, beautiful hotel, very helpful staff, could not find fault. Was a lovely romantic break as the rooftop bar creates a fabulous view and background for pictures. Hotel is close to everything, restaurants, bars, shops and only short metro rides to museums etc

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I stayed for 1 week. We would definitely choose this hotel when returning to Madrid. The staff is very helpful. We purchased the Deluxe Suite with a Terrace. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND spending the extra money for one of these rooms. The room is large and has a large terrace with beautiful views of the Madrid city. The entire hotel is clean and modern. The free breakfast has excellent choices and reminded us of what could be offered in an all-inclusive Riu property. We purposely choose Riu because we've stayed at them before in Cancun. This hotel lives up to the Riu name and quality. It's a great location to walk to any of the popular tourist sites as well. The only time we used an Uber or taxi was to get to/from the airport. There was a mini fridge in our room as well as a coffee maker. They provided bottles of water as well inside the room. There is also a safe to use and an iron/ironing board in each room. Free wifi was an added plus and was very fast. Overall, an excellent hotel and experience.

I stayed here last week with a group of friends and I will definitely return with my children. Rooms are very clean, daily maid service. Great security, you can only access your room floor with your room key. Rooftop pool is small but sufficient. The breakfast is absolutely amazing. Highly recommend for families. Just off the theatre district, 5 min walk to the palace and a 13 min walk to plaza mayor.

Stayed here while on a business trip. Very nice, clean and spacious room. Near to shopping and a convenient carrefour nearby. Breakfast is superb! Good spread and helpful stuff. The sky bar has good view of Madrid city and the glass platform and bridge. Very good & enjoyable stay overall.

The hotel is on a great location. Very nice pool and rooftop bar with a spectacular view. The only thing we thought was very strange is that you are not allowed in the pool or restaurant before or after check in/out.

A very large a sometimes chaotic feeling experience - from the elevators that mostly functioned as they should, to the pool which was more like a watering hole, to the buffet breakfast which feeds an army each day. All three restaurants serve the same limited bar food. Drinks are good and the views from the top floors are pretty amazing. We left our lovely AirBNB to enjoy a pool in the scorching July heat. But the pool itself and surrounding area made it hard to chill out there for very long as it was always packed.

Just spent a wonderful 5 days at this hotel. Booked a deluxe room with a terrace which was gorgeous and had views all across Madrid. The room was spotless and was lovely having the use of the fridge and fresh water and toiletries replenished daily. The sky bar was stunning and enjoyed a few cocktails up there. Breakfast was delicious and so much choice. Staff were very polite and helpful. Lovely touch for our anniversary with a complimentary bottle of cava. Location was perfect for exploring Madrid. Will definitely stay at this hotel again. Thanks for a fabulous time.

This hotel is beautiful. It is right outside a metro station in central Madrid, it’s easy to get to from the airport and the interior decor is really nice! However, sadly, my experience has been tarnished by the rude pool staff. It’s currently mid 30 degrees and the pool is located on a roof terrace so it’s very open to the sun and the heat. The pool is also tiny (if you’re not here for 10am when it opens you will not get a lounger and there are no additional pool seats). As this is my first day I came with my bottle of water which about 4 other people have (literally as I type this). There is a woman managing the towel who just came over to me and my partner in front of everyone at this very small pool terrace and told us that we can’t drink the water we have brought with us and that we have to buy it from the bar. “NO OUTSIDE DRINKS”. This message was not relayed to any of the other guests and was mortifying! I have stayed at a few other Riu hotels around the world and always had a positive experience so this has been really disappointing. So, heads up to anyone reading this - don’t drink your own water in extreme heat conditions at this hotel!

Responded 1 week ago
Dear mansnapsmatthew, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We are glad that you found our hotel with its elegant decor beautiful, and that you enjoyed our central location in Madrid. On the other hand, we regret that we could not meet your expectations regarding the pool. Generally speaking, a pool on a rooftop is smaller than a pool built into the ground, due to the limited surface available and the water weight. Our clients love the rooftop pool, which is mostly enjoyed to cool off while admiring the city scenery, but not designed for swimming or water activities as a pool in a beach holiday would be. Having read your feedback we are really sorry that you did not agree with our "no outside food and beverage" policy in the pool area, and it is a real pity that due to this you decided to rate us with only one star. Notwithstanding your disappointment we hope that your experience on this occasion will not deter you from visiting us again so we can prove this was an exception! With our best wishes we remain, Hotel Riu Plaza España Online Reputation Manager
