When house keeping enters your room 3 times in 3 days when the Do Not disturb sign is on it means it isnt a safe place to be. Not very good hygiene standards too. Shame because is pretty well located. Manager Daniel was very friendly and kept my injections i forgot in the fridge. Still i will not go back. Do t feel safe

Well just got back from Hotel Rui plaza espana, The hotel was lovely clean and staff were lovely, But a few things to say, the pool was very small and freezing hardly anyone in it because so cold. And you only get 90 minutes around the pool then you have to go so the next people can come in so dont get settled, they had a lot of fuctions on in hotel so we could'nt even go around to chill on other side because was closed for a fuction, i mean this was are summer holiday we were just wonting to chill and relax . But madrid was a lovely place with lots of places to visit and see, BUT would have been nice to have a few days around the pool and a swim, without having to get moved!

Negatives - door staff are very rude - key cards stopped working 3 times in a 2 night stay - room phone are from the 1970s and could not call reception causing us to not have any drinks in the room - bed is 2 singles shoved together and not bonded so you always fall down the crack. No duvet provided either Positives - 360 bar has amazing views

I loved this hotel, the staff is just amazing. It is very clean and Covid prepared, the room is very comfortable with a wonderful mattress and a very modern bathroom. The rooftop bar must be one of the best in the World (Thank you Jesus, Aday and Andrea for your kindness). Breakfast is also very good and most of all, not only the hotel is overall excellent, it’s also great value and very well located. Will be back!

I came to stay at the Riu for 10 days, The rooms are basic and there is a club on the top floor and the music is so loud it feels like the ceiling is going to collapse with the noise and the vibration. It’s awful , Iv never experienced anything like it Also the AC does not work in any of the rooms and it gets extremely hot and unbearable. The staff are very friendly however I will never stay here again
