Set in the center of Madrid’s cultural, artistic and culinary scene, Radisson Hotel Group opens its first Radisson RED in Spain, welcoming the vibrant lifestyle brand to the country. Located on Calle de Atocha, one of the main bustling avenues in Madrid and in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Art, Radisson RED Madrid is steps away from some of the world’s most renowned art museums, galleries and UNESCO heritage sites.
The hotel is a culinary destination in its own right, featuring three offerings from 5-star Michelin chef Eneko Atxa, one of which is situated on the rooftop providing unrivalled city views. The opening of the first Radisson RED in Spain is part of the Group’s ambitious growth plan to open 20 new hotels within the next five years, following the recent successful openings of Radisson Collection Hotel, Magdalena Plaza Sevilla, Radisson Collection Hotel Gran Vía Bilbao, and Radisson Blu 1882 Hotel, Barcelona Sagrada Familia.
Radisson RED Madrid occupies a historic site, originally an industrial building used as a sawmill in the 1800s before becoming a hotel 100 years later. Now on arrival, guests are welcomed by a red, statement sculpture of a bear and a tree, which takes center stage at the hotel’s entrance. The sculpture takes inspiration from the city’s original bear and strawberry tree monument which is situated in the Puerta del Sol square and represents the symbols of Madrid.
The hotel features 260 modern rooms, 10 of which are suites. Each of the rooms and suites embody Radisson RED’s signature design-focused bold, cutting-edge design and creative artwork, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows, and balconies with city views. Artwork seen throughout the property is inspired by the Renaissance and Baroque eras, as well as by works seen at the nearby Prado Museum.
The Radisson RED art collection aims to be flexible, connecting with the guests’ global mindset. The hotel interiors are welcoming guests to the lobby with cozy, comfortable seating, and warm lighting. Local touches are seen in the elevators, where panels are upholstered using the typical fabrics of Madrid.
Situated just 500 meters away from Madrid Atocha railway station, Radisson RED Madrid is located in proximity of renowned heritage sites and art museums. Among these are the internationally-acclaimed Museo Reina Sofia, known for its impressive collection of 20th century paintings; the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, the second largest private collection in the world after the British Royal Collection; and the iconic Prado Museum, home to the world's largest and most important collection of Goya and Velázquez paintings, as well as works by many other Spanish and foreign artists. The hotel is also only few meters away from the Royal Botanic Gardens, as well as the Landscape of Light, recently named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
