The Beatles and the Gran Meliá Fénix

The Gran Meliá Fénix is elegant and classical yet also truly modern. The emblematic history of the hotel is also marked by the people who choose its elegant facilities for their stay in Madrid.

Since it opened in 1953, this exclusive hotel has been chosen by prestigious guests from all walks of life: culture, politics, music, fashion, cinema and sport. Known as “the excellence of Madrid”, “the hotel of the nobility” and “the Beatles’ hotel”, the Gran Meliá Fénix is an oasis of tranquillity right in the heart of the Spanish capital (Plaza Colón).

A hotel for celebrities in Madrid

The select and discreet atmosphere, elegant lounges and richly decorated and contrasting rooms, blending traditional luxury with a surprising modern flair, have been the perfect setting for famous celebrities such as Rita Hayworth, Gloria Swanson, Cary Grant and Charles Bronson, amongst many, many others.


The Beatles and the Gran Meliá Fénix


A major event for the city and the hotel was the historic visit to Spain by The Beatles on 1 July, 1965. The Fab Four from Liverpool gave a crowded press conference at the Gran Meliá Fénix before their only concert in Madrid, and then stayed in four of its luxury suites.


Since then, the Gran Meliá Fénix has become a landmark in the Spanish capital, and a meeting point at the very highest level. Under its spectacular modernist dome there have been numerous meetings between important politicians, prominent Spanish and international businessmen and women, and members of the world’s royal families.


Listed building

A thorough renovation has now made this charismatic hotel the hotel chosen by the stars of the 21st century, while retaining all of the essential charm of its origins that has made it a “listed building” to protect the city heritage.
