The Ada Palace hotel in the heart of the capital had to close the door due to losing a lawsuit deriving from a conflict between the owners of the building, Real Gran Peña and Corporación Hispano Hotelera, the property´s manager. The first sued the second for failing to pay monthly rental payment.
Real Gran Peña was founded in 1869 by high-level military officers and is now associating aristocracy, bankers, politicians and military officers led in honour by Juan Carlos the King.
As the accused party has neither responded to the notice to vacate nor moved out from the building, therefore on April 29th the Judicial Police asked to leave all the hotel guests and personnel being on the property at that time.
Corporación Hispano Hotelera refused to make any comments on the matter.
Four-star Ada Palace was a trendy hotel occupying almost entirety of an iconic building constructed in 1917. It offered 80 rooms, the Agora restaurant and two terraces on the sixth floor and a rooftop with an impressive view on Madrid. The hotel has been housed by the property situated on the Gran Via Street since 2009.
