– Riu Plaza Berlin
Berlin’s history and culture attract thousands of curious visitors to the German capital every year. Its notorious wall, which crosses the city, has become one of the most famous tourist attractions in Europe, where you can take a selfie with its original murals. This cosmopolitan city has a special charm that captivates everyone who visits it.
In addition to its wall, you can discover more of Berlin’s history by visiting some of its most iconic monuments, including the Brandenburg Gate, the telecommunications tower, Checkpoint Charlie, the control point for passing through the city’s infamous wall, the Jewish Quarter, Alexanderplatz and Museum Island. This city is special because you will feel the history in every step you take.
Where to stay in Berlin? RIU has been present in the city since 2015, with its hotel Riu Plaza Berlin located in the centre and ready to guarantee your rest after an intense day of sightseeing.
– Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin
Dublin is famous for its welcoming atmosphere and bustling city life. Its streets invite you to enjoy and savour its vibrant culture. In addition to this, you can enjoy its renowned and tasty pints of beer in any of the city’s pubs. But what can you visit in Dublin? Grab a pen and paper and we’ll tell you!
- Guinness storehouse where you will discover the origin of the famous beer.
- St Patrick’s Cathedral. This is the largest church in the city and was built in honour of the patron saint of Ireland.
- The statue of Molly Malone, one of the most important landmarks in the city because of its history and because its name pays tribute to a well-known song in the country that recounts the legend.
- Trinity College and its Old Library , the oldest university in the country.
- Stroll through Phoenix Park where you will find the official residence of the President of Ireland along with other historic houses. There are also numerous hiking trails.

The Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin, housed in a historic building, offers you the perfect location from which to visit the city’s most important sights, as it is very close to Abbey Street, from where you can catch a shuttle to just about anywhere!
– Riu Plaza España
Madrid is known for being the capital of Spain, but above all for its great cultural life. Museums, monuments, exhibitions and shows are the main reasons why many tourists visit the city. It is traditional to have your photo taken under the Puerta del Sol, stroll along Gran Vía while you enjoy a day’s shopping, get lost in the Barrio de las Letras, see the Palacio de Cristal, go to the Prado Museum, and so many other things! This is a city where you are guaranteed to be entertained.
Do you know what else has become trendy in Madrid? In recent years there has been a surge in the number of rooftop terraces on important buildings that offer impressive panoramic views of the city. That is why, as well as going for dinner in the Malasaña neighbourhood, we recommend you go up to the terrace of the Riu Plaza España hotel, which offers a 360º view of the city. This hotel, located in Plaza España, hides many other attractions within its walls, making it another essential stop if you visit Madrid. Of course, it is the ideal place to stay during your visit to the Spanish capital.
