The Sacyr Vallehermoso Tower has a 457-room hotel occupying part of its space. I don't know much about that hotel seeing as the CTBA is a purely commercial office complex.

Eric, some of them are, others aren´t because they are being finished.

Torre Espacio is occupaid in a good part, but still some parts are still busy.

Torre Sacyr (the black onel) has part as a hotel occupied and part that is being rented as offices. There is still room for the offices.

Torre Caja Madrid (the squared one) will be for a bank when it´s totally finished. SO it´s already sold.

TOrre Mutua Madrileña (the diamondshaped) will be for a single company and I think that they won´t rent any room there. It´still being finished.

I´m wishing to see all the buildings busy with people coming and going inside. FOr the moment there are only two like that and the difference is great comparing to some months ago, when no one was occupied.

I meant I don't know how many floors the hotel occupies in the Vallehermoso Tower.
