At the top of the Hotel Riu Plaza España is the most famous terrace in Madrid. Located on the 27th floor of this majestic building overlooking Plaza España, in the heart of the city centre, it has become one of the must-sees that all tourists want to tick off their list when they come to Madrid.
Since the hotel opened in August 2019, many curious visitors have come to discover this media-friendly space that offers the finest views of Madrid. We have also received many questions during this time. Today we are going to answer them all in this post where we tell you everything you need to know about the most coveted terrace in Madrid!
What is the Riu Plaza España terrace called?
The capital’s trendiest meeting point, where everyone wants to go, is known as the Rooftop Bar 360º. As its name suggests, this exclusive space offers unparalleled and unobstructed 360-degree views of the capital.
This is possible thanks to the glass walkway that connects the two parts of the terrace, bridging the space with its comb-shaped façade. Countless visitors have paraded along it, wanting to take the famous dizzying photo with Madrid at their feet. Only the bravest dare to cross it without covering their eyes! In addition to its catwalk, the terrace stands out for its exquisite design, richly decorated and burgeoning with plant motifs. In addition to its walkway, and following a recent refurbishment, the famous terrace now has a new element that is sure to add even more adrenaline to your visit: a glass platform suspended in the air! We are sure you will love it.
Another major change has taken place on the 26th floor of the hotel, where you can now enjoy a gastrobar. Here you can sample a wide variety of tapas while you drink in the spectacular city views visible through the huge glass window that runs along the walls.
