Since then, it has not stopped growing and today it boasts a total of 100 hotels around the world! But what is behind the name of this hotel company that has charmed so many?

The applause, the comings and goings of people, full rooms and the hustle and bustle of the Riu Plaza España hotel<3> are back! Little by little, events in the MICE sector are picking up again, and the hotel is bearing witness to this. Who would have suggested two years ago, when we first opened, that the hotel would develop chameleon-like properties, allowing it to adapt to any circumstances? This impressive hotel, which presides over Madrid's Plaza España, has become a landmark for both tourists and the capital's inhabitants.
