Room Mate Will Operate Hotel Rex In Madrid

6 February 2017 – Expansión

Room Mate, the hotel chain owned by Enrique Sarasola, has been chosen to manage the iconic Hotel Rex, located on Gran Vía in Madrid.

The hotel, which will have 130 rooms and which will be operated by Room Mate on a lease basis, will open its doors in 2018 or 2019 and will create 45 new jobs.

The building was acquired by Axa Real Estate in 2015. The owner now wants to undertake a comprehensive renovation of the property. To this end, the architect Tomas Alía, who has already worked for the hotel chain on other projects, such as Room Mate Oscar in Madrid and Room Mate Aitana in The Netherlands, will be the designer on this project.

In addition to Hotel Rex, Room Mate has five other hotels in Madrid.
