The Majorcan hotel chain Riu Hotels & Resorts continues its feat in expanding its infrastructures. This time he has done it in the center of the Spanish capital, again with Ekahau’s tool.
In August 2019, it opened its first urban hotel in the capital, after years of searching for a suitable location. The chosen location has been the busy ‘Plaza de España’, specifically in the emblematic ‘Edificio España’, abandoned for more than 10 years.
Riu Group, after the remodeling, has maintained the essence of the original property. They have managed to carry out an architectural project that respects the history of the building since its public opening in 1953. This essence is also maintained with the good interior design work carried out in the establishment, merging the historical elements that still remained in it.
In a hotel of this size, with 585 rooms, 17 meeting rooms, a gym, a heated pool, a spacious lobby and two sky bars, spread over 28 floors, the planning of the Wi-Fi network installation should not be taken lightly.
For this reason, the network team of the chain has trusted and has continued to rely on the Ekahau Pro tool for more than seven years. With it they ensure their reputation, since the quality of the Wi-Fi is unbeatable and the connection is guaranteed at all points from the hotel, thus ensuring the comfort of guests and all those who make use of its conference rooms.
Why do they use the Ekahau Pro tool and why do they keep their trust in it?
