This is the largest open-plan meeting room in Madrid. The Gran Barcelona Room measures 1,500 m2 and is designed to host events for up to 1,300 people.
Located at the base of the hotel, in the second basement level, it has skylights on the sides to provide natural light to the entire room. Because of its size, it is the ideal venue for holding large-scale events, including annual conventions, product launches and embassy receptions. The room adapts to the needs of each event: its soundproofed panels can generate spaces of different sizes. Likewise, the Gran Barcelona Room has its own kitchen to prepare the food for banquets or other services requiring refreshments, such as brunches, coffee breaks, luncheons or gala dinners.
It has recently hosted such distinguished events as the gala dinner of Bayern from Munich after the closure of the 2010 Champions League, the insignia ceremony for Real Madrid and the annual coaches’ convention for UEFA.
