Radisson Hotel Group has expanded its presence in Spain with the signing of a new Radisson Blu brand hotel in Barcelona.
The signing is in line with Radisson’s plan announced in 2018 to open more than 20 hotels within the next five years.
Radisson Blu Hotel, Barcelona Sagrada Familia is slated to open this spring after the rebranding of the existing Hotel Barcelona 1882.
The hotel is just a 500m walk from the Sagrada Familia metro station, while the city’s main train station, Sants Barcelona, is 20-minute drive away. The city’s international airport is also a 40-minute drive from the hotel.
Radisson Hotel Group Global chief development officer Elie Younes said: “Radisson Blu celebrates ten consecutive years as the largest upper upscale brand in Europe thanks to the trust of our partners and the loyalty of our guests.
“This fantastic hotel further cements the brand’s leading position in this segment. The property marks our 10th hotel with Union Investment across Europe, and we look forward to our continued successful relationship. Southern Europe is a key focus market where we anticipate significant scale in the coming few years.”
Radisson Blu Hotel, Barcelona Sagrada Familia will have 182 guest rooms, featuring standard and superior rooms and two junior suites.
Other guest amenities include a fitness room, a lobby bar, a restaurant and 64 underground car parking bays.
The hotel also boasts 120m2 of meeting space and rooftop terrace and pool.
In October 2021, Radisson Blu Hotel, Madrid Prado in Spain reopened after complete renovation.
The company recently opened Radisson Collection hotels have opened in Seville and Bilbao, is expected to open the first Radisson RED lifestyle property in Madrid later this year.
