The opening of the first Radisson RED in Spain is part of the Radisson Hotel Group’s ambitious growth plan to open 20 new hotels within the next five years.

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 occupies a historic site, originally an industrial building used as a sawmill in the 1800s before becoming a hotel 100 years later.

The hotel features 260 rooms, 10 of which are suites. Each of the rooms and suites embody Radisson RED’s signature design and creative artwork, 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.

Radisson RED Madrid will be home to three signature culinary experiences by 5-star Michelin chef, Eneko Atxa. On the ground floor, guests can enjoy Basque and Japanese fusion cuisine at NKO while the rooftop terrace will feature Nigiri Basque House by NKO, offering panoramic views of the Madrid skyline. A third culinary experience, DeBokata, will be a takeaway corner where Atxa will pay tribute to his favorite street foods. The hotel’s lobby also has a bar, Oso Rojo, featuring cocktails, live music on selected days and an all-day menu.

Alongside the hotel’s cool communal spaces, a gym will open in early November. Radisson RED Madrid also provides the perfect location for any type of meeting or celebration, with facilities including a large main meeting area as well as more intimate meeting spaces for up to 12 people with a terrace.

We’re extremely proud to open the doors to Spain’s first Radisson RED property. The brand showcases a playful twist on the conventional with a strong focus on art and design, which is celebrated throughout the hotel. This new property fits right into the city’s vibrant offering, and we can’t wait to introduce it to the local and international market.

Radisson RED Madrid is the perfect addition to this cosmopolitan city. Thoughtful local touches, including the statement bear and strawberry tree sculpture at the hotel’s entrance, promise to create a truly unique and dynamic experience for guests. Complete with exciting culinary options, a lively bar, and spacious lobby with upbeat music and quirky design pieces, Radisson RED Madrid will be an urban getaway like no other.
