    The Rezidor Hotel Group has opened their very first hotel in the Spanish Capital Madrid – The Radisson Blu Hotel, Madrid Prado.Across from the Prado Museum, the new property offers 54 contemporary guest rooms, created by the celebrated Spanish design duo Sandra Taruella and Isabel Lopez.

    The hotel is adjacent to the new Caixa-Forum cultural centre and there are more of Madrid’s attractions within walking distance, including the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofia Museum (the “Golden Triangle of Art”).

    Rezidor said that it believes the hotel’s 54 rooms are stylish, inspiring and unique. It said the accommodation is a celebration of individuality, with relevant playful touches – such as blown up images of Madrid underscored with ambient lighting. A sleek grey and brown colour palette enhances the hotel’s chic and modern aesthetic.

    The bathrooms featuring amenities by Anne Sémonin and all rooms are equipped with technological amenities such as free high-speed internet access.

    The hotel also features a spa with minimalist design that offers pampering treatments, an indoor pool, a steam room, a relaxation and fitness area.

    The hotel’s specialty grill “The Cask”, serves prime cuts of meat and there is also a lounge bar with a selection of cocktails and Spanish “tapas”. The contemporary restaurant also offers a selection of vegetarian options.

    The Whiskey Bar features over 20 references of the single malts and is situated in the main courtyard of the building with its glass walls and views of the Madrid skyline.

    The Radisson Blu Hotel, Madrid Prado offers an intimate, contemporary conference area, measuring 43sqm. This space can be divided into three separate boardrooms, or combined to incorporate the built-in bar area increasing the size to 89sqm.

    Rezidor, CEO and president, Kurt Ritter said: “This hotel is a perfect addition to the young and stylish portfolio of Radisson Blu. We are delighted to be present in the key market of Madrid now and look forward to our further future business development in Spain.”
