Chiswick, United Kingdom
This hotel opened in 2019 so it is very new and modern. Service is great. The views from the rooms are fantastic. I recommend you to go for a room with a balcony. You have a swimming pool in floor 15 and a rooftop bar on the 27 floor with direct access for guests. Location is also good. You are in the beginning of the Gran via and within walking distance to the puerta del sol. Nearby you have the Grinko restaurante also famous in madrid for their rooftop bar. The food at breakfast is also very good. A lot of variety. Food has very good quality. This is a 4 start hotel going into 5 in my opinion. Very good and very recommended hotel.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my 15 year old son in a twin room. The hotel is very central, right next door to a tube stop and easy walking to the centre. It’s a big hotel, but lots of friendly staff. Room was good size with a nice walk in shower. Breakfast was really excellent, loads of choice and great quality. We used the gym which was good and great pool area on the 21st floor was good but the pool was a little small, and chilly. However this is an excellent hotel and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Rooms were clean. Beds were comfy! Hotel guests had access to the rooftop bar anytime, while other folks had to wait in a long line, and there was a line almost all the time! Breakfast was great. Staff was very helpful and friendly!

We were two families with children visiting Madrid from USA for vacation/work purposes. We were very satisfied in all aspects with this hotel. Their best things were breakfast and the staff friendly attitude.

Jesus M wrote a review Jul. 16
Our family was in town visiting and we had seen many beautiful pictures of the rooftop bar. After waiting 2 hours in line to get in and paying 50EUR for 5 people to get in we were expecting a good experience. Little did we know that we would be received with poor customer service and arrogant attitudes of not caring for guest. It started when they were taking our orders. They were rude and in a rush and not willing to properly explain the menu or take our orders. Other staff members came and interrupted while the waiter was taking the order to fix a problem at another table. Then after they brought our drinks they also brought the check to charge us, everytime we would order something new they would charge us on the spot instead of giving us a bill at the end of the experience. (Its bad business if you consider guest are more likely to spend more if they get one bill versus multiple bills) I called to speak to the manager to let them know about our experience and I was also received with a we don't care attitude. I would not recommend going if you are going for a good atmosphere or experience.

Responded 1 week ago
Dear Jesus, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and for expressing your concerns. It is truly disappointing for us to hear about the inconveniences you had during your recent visit at our roof top bar. This is not the standard of service that either of us expects and especially to you as our valued visitor, and clearly not the impression we are striving to offer our visitors. Please be assured that your comments have been shared with the management team involved. We sincerely hope to have the opportunity to welcome you to one of our worldwide available hotels in the future, and to show you a better and excellent service. Until then, we wish you all the best. With our best wishes we remain, Hotel Riu Plaza España Online Reputation Manager
