VP Plaza España Design opens in Madrid

VP Hoteles has opened a new flagship property, VP Plaza España Design, 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 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 25-metre 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 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.

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.
