New Five Star Property Opens in Madrid's Iconic Plaza España



LOTUS has been appointed to manage the PR for the launch of the brand new VP Plaza España Design 5* which opened today (1 March) in the Spanish capital.

Spanish hotel group, VP Hoteles, has opened a new flagship property, VP Plaza España Design 5* in the very heart of Madrid.

Located on the iconic Plaza España in the historic centre of Madrid, the stylish 214-room property places VP Hoteles, a family-owned hotel group, at the vanguard of art, design and architecture.

The spacious 214 rooms are divided into ten different categories and cover 17 floors combining state-of-the-art design and technology with modern functionality and enviable city views. Room features include private terraces, walk-in closets and private gyms.

In keeping with VP Hoteles’ defining characteristic whereby all properties feature an interior garden, dramatic greenery is displayed throughout with vertical gardens stretching right from the underground parking area to the 17th floor.

Using B720 Architecture Studio, as well as interior designers Cuarto Interior and Studio Gronda, the hotel cements its aesthetic credentials with works from contemporary artists Dario Urzay and Fernando Palacios.

In the centre of the property, the pièce de résistance is a 25m metallic waterfall sculpture created by Catalan artist Pere Gifre, known for his water-inspired themed sculptures, and dramatically tumbling from the glass bottom of the 12th floor swimming pool to the ground floor.

The panoramic 360º Gingko Sky Bar on the 12th floor commands views of the Royal Palace and the Debod Temple as well as the peaks of Madrid’s surrounding mountain ranges and a bird’s eye perspective of the landmark Plaza España below. Complete with an outdoor swimming pool*, an elegant and spacious bar with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a fully soundproofed nightclub, the 12th floor of VP Plaza España is set to be a new social hub in the heart of the city and a meeting place for local and international visitors.

The Botania restaurant, the newest creation from the fashionable Larrumba Group expands across the ground floor of the property in a sea of landscaped gardens from the façade on Plaza España to a generously proportioned patio on the east side bringing a new gastro proposition to Madrid with a focus on Asian fusion cuisine.

Other elements of the property include a comprehensive 24h gym, spa and Biloba Wellness Centre, ground floor lobby bar, buffet restaurant, spacious underground parking, a state-of-the-art business centre, as well as more than 1400 metres squared of flexible meeting space with plenty of natural light.

The hotel is the fifth property for VP Hoteles joining VP Jardín Metropolitano, VP Jardín de Recoletas, VP el Madroño and VP Jardín de Tres Cantos all located in the Spanish capital.

Double standard rooms at VP Plaza España Design 5* are now priced from €180** on a room-only basis. For more information or to book, please visit
