Nobu Hospitality has announced plans to open its fifth hotel and restaurant in Spain, located in the capital city of Madrid.

Nobu Hotel Madrid will open in 2024 in a renovated office building at 26 Calle Alcala, between Plaza de Cibeles and Puerta del Sol.

The hotel will include a tri-level Nobu restaurant and bar, an expansive rooftop bar and a lounge with views over the skyline. Leisure facilities will include a fitness centre and spa.

The restaurant will be designed by Californian architectural/design group Studio PCH, which has also designed the Malibu property and the forthcoming San Sebastian hotel.

The hotel group released a video celebrating the announcement:

Trevor Horwell, CEO of Nobu Hospitality, commented:

“We are absolutely thrilled to finally launch in the magnificent city of Madrid. A bustling mecca of art, culture, and cuisine, the Spanish capital is an important destination for us. This will be our fifth hotel in Spain, and we look forward to further expanding our Spanish footprint to create a truly memorable hospitality experience for local residents as well as our international Nobu guests.”

Javier Illán Plaza, president and CEO of Millenium Hospitality Real Estate, added:

“I’m so pleased to be announcing our second project with Nobu Hospitality, and the launch of Nobu Hotel Madrid. We are so proud to continue our great relationship with such a successful luxury international brand and bring to the City of Madrid the Nobu experience and the exciting restaurant and rooftop bar which we’re sure will be well received by local residents and travellers alike.”

Nobu Hospitality is entering a long-term management agreement with Millenium Hospitality Real Estate to develop the hotel, which marks their second project following the San Sebastian property set to open in 2023.

Nobu Hospitality was founded by chef Nobu Matsuhisa, actor Robert De Niro and director Meir Teper, and currently comprises 13 hotels in its portfolio. Last year the group opened hotels in Chicago and Warsaw, and plans to add further properties in destinations including Rome, Hamburg, Santorini and San Sebastian.
