For years, we searched for an opportunity to open an urban hotel in Madrid, so this chance to open one in the heart of the city, in such an iconic building, far exceeds all our expectations. The project has been complex and exciting. For two years, we have channelled top talent, all our experience and a lot of hard work into creating this new hotel that brings Edificio España back to life, and that we also hope will act as a lever for the surrounding area's regeneration."
