Opening of the first Radisson RED in Spain

Located in the heart of Madrid’s cultural, artistic and culinary scene, Radisson Hotel Group opens its first Radisson RED in Spain, welcoming the dynamic lifestyle brand to the country. Located on Calle de Atocha, one of Madrid’s main bustling avenues and in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Art, Radisson RED Madrid is just 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, with three offerings from 5-Michelin-star chef Eneko Atxa, one of which is located on the rooftop with stunning 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 over the next five years, following recent successful openings of Radisson Collection Hotel, Magdalena Plaza Sevilla, Radisson Collection Hotel Gran Vía Bilbao and Hotel Radisson Blu 1882, Barcelona Sagrada Familia.

The 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, upon arrival, guests are greeted by a red sculpture of a bear and a tree, which takes center stage at the hotel’s entrance. The sculpture is inspired by the original monument of the city bearing the bear and the strawberry tree, located in the Puerta del Sol square and representing the symbols of Madrid.

The hotel has 260 modern rooms, including 10 suites. Each of the rooms and suites embodies the bold, cutting-edge design and creative artwork of Radisson RED, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies with city views. The artwork seen throughout the property is inspired by the Renaissance and Baroque eras, as well as works seen at the nearby Prado Museum. The Radisson RED art collection aims to be flexible, in line with the global mindset of customers. The interiors of the hotel greet guests in the lobby with comfortable seating and warm lighting. Local touches can be seen in the elevators, where panels are upholstered in typical Madrid fabrics.

Just 500 meters from Madrid Atocha Train Station, Radisson RED Madrid is close to 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 paintings by Goya and Velázquez, as well as works by many other Spanish and foreign artists. The hotel is also just a few meters from the Royal Botanical Gardens, as well as the Landscape of Light, recently named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
