Excellent location. Close to everything and the quieter area of gran via. Will stay here again. Clean hotel and rooms.

I’ve known this hotel for decades. It use to be a staple. The renovations are great, very eco friendly. Nonetheless it lost its essence and style. The clientele is low budget at least in their demeanors. Generally speak they did an excellent job although they could have made it look more ritzy. I won’t stay there again. Madrid has elegant and wonderful hotels and in great neighborhoods. Not to forget the roof deck pool, it’s a joke….

Beautiful and modern rooms!

I've stayed in many hotels in Madrid along the years and the Riu is a great choice with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel with 4 star prices. It will be my top choice when returning to the city.

My family of 3 had a 1 bedroom overlooking the Plaza. Fantastic room with plenty of space. All of the staff were friendly, it was clean and the amenities were nice (gym, pool, roof top dining/views, etc.). It was 40 deg C so we went to the roof top pool (26th Fl?) which got crowded. The roof top observation area/bar/restaurant (27th Fl?) also gets crowded at night as they open it up to the public (for a fee) but since we were in the hotel, they had seating for hotel guests reserved for us. Loved the breakfast with plenty to choose from and compares in variety to cruise line breakfasts. The location was great as it was close to the Metro, the shopping district, the Palace, and there are many close by dining options (albeit a total tourist area). You should venture outside the hotel's touristic area if you want to experience all of Madrid's offerings. We would definitely stay here again... thanks for a great stay!

We really enjoyed the rooftop experience!

Historic hotel that destined for demolition until purchased by a locals and completely renovated in 2015. Roof-top bar is a lively place with a great view of the city. Restaurant is one floor below the roof-top bar and serves ver good, traditional Spanish food at a reasonable. The buffet breakfast is extensive. Great location, across from the Palace and easy walk into the city center. Highly recommend eating lunch at the Mercado (famous old market).

Rui is one of the best hotel to stay. Employees are so friendly and helpful. The terrace and bar is a great place to hangout. The glass floor is awesome for taking pics. The view is stunning from terrace. Food is ok. Not many vegetarian options. Drinks are good little pricey. Overall the hotel is a great place to stay.

Love this hotel . The rooftop is awesome!! Huge ZARA in fist floor
