“Great boutique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

I am still sitting in the room of the hotel writing this review, I run a travel company myself and have to say this is one of the best boutique hotels I have stayed in! Fantastic location for exploring, great breakfast, the design of the hotel is really well done, the rooms are a little on the cozy side but have all amenities (even hair straighteners for my girlfriend). The staff make you feel very at home and nothing is too much trouble for them. In the evening the lounge area turns into a really busy little bar with an awesome atmosphere!

We booked this based on it's location in Chueca, and we were delighted when we discovered just how convenient it is for discovering Madrid as a whole. The hotel itself is exceptional. The best thing about it was the staff who were super friendly and professional. I don't think I can remember staff so friendly as here. The hotel is decorated to an immaculate standard and done very nicely. The room was on the small side, but it didn't matter as the bed was very comfortable and the shower was delicious. It's got good free wifi and a music player in the room for an iphone. Breakfast is very good and the bar is a great place for a few drinks. I had the best G&T ever here. I can't recommend this place enough.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the courtyard which was very quiet.

This was a GREAT stay. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the ENTIRE staff is SO friendly. We spent four nights here and would definitely book this hotel again and recommend it to friends. We hope guests and staff will treat the hotel well as not sure all materials used to beautifully decorate it will last for ages. One of the BEST beds we've ever had in a hotel - heavenly. Sadly, there isn't a lot of space in the closet (no drawers, just two very high plank so if you are short...). We had some trouble adjusting the air co to our taste as you couldn't open the windows in the room. The breakfast is really good and the bar and lounge area are beautiful to have drinks. They do have to work on the draft and chillness when sitting there though (even with the heaters, this shouldn't turn into a long term solution). The area the hotel is located in is FAB! We wanted to stay longer...that says it all!

Dear Stefanie H,

What a lovely comment! Thank you so much for your time and effort.

Our team is really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Only YOU Hotel & Lounge and your time in Madrid.

Please, next time you may visit Madrid, let us suggest you one of our rooms with balcony overlooking the main street… We are sure you would definitely love the fresh air and the views of Calle Barquillo.

We appreciate the feedback that you have provided us about the chillness when having breakfast. Our Engineering team is aware of the situation and they are currently fixing it. As you said, this should not jeopardize our fantastic breakfast.

Warm Regards,

Guest Relations Manager

Three of us just stopped in to Only You as we walked by. What a delightful surprise. Such a smart lounge (only had tapas), with efficient, friendly staff. They told us they had recently opened, and by the busyness of the place, it seems they are doing well. If you go, try the violet ice cream!

Stayed on the 25th of october, and i was in room 113 with a balcony, which was great. The staff at this hotel are the best i have came across from the bellmen to the house keeping staff,receptionist all the staff provide a first class service. The bar was always buzzing during the night and the breakfast was just yummy yummy and lots of choice. Advise if you going by metro, get the metro to BANCO DE ESPANA which is on line two. There are two exit at this station, once you get outside at the top of the steps, just turn round CALLE BARQUILLO is the street on your left, with five minutes walk to the hotel. Perfect hotel for a perfect weekend and highly recommended and will stay here again in six months time.

I have visited Madrid twice before, this was our first couple's extended weekend. What a great location, we really loved the neighbourhood. I have stayed at the Ritz, and it really is very busy there. If you want a nice relaxed weekend, we would avoid the busy thoroughfares in Madrid, where most of the great hotels are located, you get close to the museums there, but the drawback is the busy streets, they are very busy, and you won't see the local life, really at all.

This location is perfect. Walking distance to Gran Via, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza etc. It's a quiet little street, yet it's not dead quiet, it's lively in a very nice way, far from too clean and sterile. A lot like Paris at its best, off the busy boulevards, and yet so close. The really huge plus is the Mercado San Ana food halls, where we were directed by the staff upon arriving late and feeling peckish. Yummmyyy!!! Wow, this is tapas heaven, absolutely delicious, fantastic ambiance, very easy going and truly succulent local tapas and seafood at extremely reasonable prices- and almost 100 pct local customers, the ultimate tell tale of a gem foodie fantasy land - went there twice, on a three day trip and bought all the souveniers: the cheeses, oils and of course the iberico hams. This jackpot is just two blocks away.

Very friendly, helpful and energetic young staff, who deserve this place to break and make it in Madrid. It's not a Ritz, and I certainly hope they never try to get there, either. It's not necessary, a good effort will get you very far at these prices. The rooms are on the small side, but very comfortable and very adequate. Breakfast was very good. The lounge bar is nice, and the Cuban doorman is already a feature item.

This hotel ticks all the right boxes, and we had a very nice stay there. Real value for money!

Room Tip: We had a couryard room, and as reviewed by others it is nice. Perhaps, the street side gives more da...
