We had an excellent stay at the Riu. We were unexpectedly upgraded to a junior suite with a beautiful view. The big draw here is the rooftop bar and honestly, we didn’t love it. Super crowded, overpriced drinks, and snobby waitstaff. There are so many wonderful places to have drinks in Madrid, I certainly wouldn’t waste your time at the rooftop bar. As for the rest of the hotel, it was great. FYI- for future travelers parking garage is at the back entrance of the hotel.
