The first of them, the Innside Madrid Génova, to be located in the central Alonso Martínez square, will be based in a fully-renovated historic building to create a lifestyle four-star hotel with 65 rooms. The second hotel will be the Innside Madrid Luchana, with 43 rooms.

Both hotels are the first in Spain for the Innside brand, which started out in Germany in 2007. Since then, Meliá Hotels International has pursued an ambitious expansion rollout, with plans to open in cities such as Copenhagen, Manchester, Lisbon, Barcelona, Hamburg and Dusseldorf.

The Innside Madrid Génova iwill provide a library lounge that serves drinks and snacks, and creative meeting spaces. The majority of its 65 rooms provide views of Génova street and the Plaza de Colón.

The Innside Madrid Luchana will be located in Luchana Street on the corner with Francisco de Rojas, and will feature a destination bar and a rooftop with views over the Spanish capital.

Gabriel Escarrer, vice chairman and CEO of Meliá Hotels International, said: "Innside by Meliá meets all the requirements to become a benchmark urban brand in major cities worldwide, and that is why we have a major focus on growing internationally. The new Innside hotels in Madrid, with their superb location and facilities, will definitely help us generate the brand recognition we need to promote this very powerful brand in new markets."
