    Exceptional 10.0
    Fantastic stay
    My husband and I enjoyed 5 days in the Riu Plaza Espana. We were slightly apprehensive about staying in any hotel due to Covid-19 but the hotel were really well prepared. The hotel was super clean, with lots of measures in place to ensure the safety of both guests and staff. The buffet breakfast was fantastic, with all items individually wrapped and guests required to wear gloves. We were given an upgraded room with a fantastic view of both Plaza Espana and Gran Via. The view was second only to the panoramic views offered by the rooftop terrace. We felt very fortunate to have access to the 360 rooftop bar (the queues were down the street for non residents!) The hotel’s location is great, with most points of interest within walking distance. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We will definitely not stay anywhere else in Madrid in future.

    Excellent new hotel in the heart of Madrid.
    Excellent, brand new hotel in an historical building in one of the best locations at the heart of Madrid. Comfortable, clean, spacious rooms with everything you may need. Any person entering the hotel is submitted to a very strict protocol (hand and feet disinfection and thermal camera scan) for COVID-19. Sames measures plus the use of disposable gloves are applied to anybody having breakfast. All food is packed to avoid contact. Any manipulation (serving yourself coffee, etc.) must be done with disposable plastic gloves that continuously exchanged. Every precaution and measure is taking in the hotel for the safety of guests during this pandemic.

    Great service
    The hotel was excellent, difficult to fault the service, the breakfast, the cleanliness. Great value for money, I would stay here again. It is also right next to a Metro station, which made getting around Madrid, very easy.

    Fabulous stay!
    I feel I have to write this review as there were a lot of negative ones on trip advisor which concerned me. Well all I can say is, ignore them. This hotel is fantastic. Everything about it was spot on considering it hadn’t been open long. Location is great, staff attentive and very polite, rooms spotless and spacious, breakfast plentiful with such a large selection of freshness, lift set up very efficient and as for the rooftop bar ...... well what an experience and not overly priced in my eyes. If you’re considering coming here book it! You will not be disappointed the Riu Plaza have done well.

    TV was broke in room as soon as i reported it was changed within the hour. Very good service and the hotel is virtually brand new.

    Very good 8.0
    good rooms - superb common areas
    Common areas were great. Specially the roof top. The gym a little too small but good enough to blow off some steam. We were unlucky and our room didn’t have a view. Actually it faced other rooms windows. I wasn’t also very big (not as big as other 4star hotel rooms).
