RIU Hotels & Resorts continues to expand its line of city hotels with the opening of its first establishment in the United Kingdom: the Riu Plaza London Victoria. The new four-star establishment with 435 rooms is located in central London in the heart of Westminster.
The new Riu Plaza hotel is located at 1 Neathouse Place, just a few metres from Victoria Station and is just 30 minutes from Gatwick Airport. The twelve-storey building was originally built in the 1960s and was completely renovated in the 1990s.
The Riu Plaza London Victoria has a contemporary minimalist design and the structure is divided into two parts: the podium and the tower. One of the most eye-catching features of the podium is the circular glass tower that houses the reception area, which is also known by the project's creators as the "drum". The hotel provides a lobby bar, a restaurant and a fully equipped 24-hour fitness centre.
