Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

We booked at this hotel knowing we'd want somewhere nice after a 29 hour flying ordeal. It did not disappoint. The staff were wonderful, the room was small but exactly what we needed.

Some of the best bits included 24 hour room use (we checked in at 2 so did not have to check out until 2), a hair straightener in the room, an AMAZING a la carte breakfast (definitely worth it), Sunday brunch, and of course the decor and location.

I cannot recommend it highly enough. My only disappointment was that our balcony door didn't open and also the bed was a bit too soft for my boyfriend. Otherwise perfect. We hope to return soon!

Dear Ms Annie G,

it is great knowing about your experience at the Only YOU Hotel & Lounge!

As you said, we do offer a 24 hour room use which is pretty convenient for late arrivals! Also, all of our rooms are full equiped, from hair straightener to some other surprises!

When are we seeing you again in our Sunday's Brunch?

Have a wonderful week!

Kind Regards,

Guest Relations Manager

I just spent 5 nights at the Only You Hotel and it was an all around pleasant and recommendable experience! The staff is super nice and helpful and makes you feel comfortable and provides excellent advice when asked. We had a premium room facing the street and it was the quietest sleeping experience I could have asked for - shutters that close out light, gorgeous king size beds and thick walls. I old 100% recommend this hotel for both business and pleasure!

This hotel is just great. You step off the street into a modern, cool reception area to be greeted with a welcome drink and very attentive staff. Rooms are great and have all the modern facilities, free wifi ipod docks etc. The hotel is decorated to a very high standard and the cleanliness is spot on.
Book a premium room if you want light and space. Also make sure you try the breakfast, there is a huge choice of food on offer and nothing is too much trouble. Although the hotel is in the city centre the rooms are very quiet and the lounge is a tranquil area away from the heat and bussle of the city outside. I would defintley like to go back!

Room Tip: Book a premium room for extra space and a big window over the courtyard. We were on the fourth floor...

We booked this hotel for a special occasion and were not disappointed! We stayed 3 nights Tues - Friday.

The moment you walk into the hotel you are met with beautiful decor and super friendly staff. We did originally book a 'standard' room, but were a bit disappointed at the lack of a window. We missed having a natural light, so decided to upgrade to the 'premium' room. The only real difference was the window and balcony - but for only 20 euros I would recommended the upgrade. The road outside wasn't that loud at night, and we couldn't hear anything with the windows closed.

The hotel staff made my birthday perfect, with excellent restaurant recommendations and I even returned to Ice Cream in my room - a big winner in my opinion. I cannot praise them enough from the bell boys, reception staff, room service and house keeping. (House keeping was good enough to tidy my horrendously messy make up!)

The location was great, the Cheucca district is modern, young and hip. Take time to explore and you will find something to your tastes, we HATED the Gran Via and the Cheucca district offered us a true Madrid experience.

Restaurants that we enjoyed included - Cafe Olivier (I think that's what it's called) and Pecado Carnal.



A small note in general for Madrid - during a bike ride around the park we were cornered by 5 teenage girls who INSISITED that we gave them money for a charity. We politely declined, but they subsequently became quite forceful and intimidating to the point of asking for our ID, Credit Cards and phones before trying to split us up. As a young couple we were able to be forceful enough with them to leave us alone but I fear that anyone on their own or an older couple may struggle to avoid their insistence for 'charity donations’. As for any city, have your whit’s about you.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the premium!

Stayed in a Premium Double. Big bathroom with large shower Everything you need in your room is provided, toothbrush,hairdrier, hair tongs, bathrobes,wifi, flatscreen tv etc. Our room overlooked a covered courtyard so you did have natural daylight. One window was frosted out and couldn't be opened so we don't know where this looked onto The room was very quiet with excellent aircon We arrived on a Sunday and on entering the street I was a bit put off because the area seemed to be a little rundown with graffiti on some buildings. However the next day the whole area was very vibrant and thriving and the graffiti didn't much matter. The hotel is approx 15 mins walk from P. del Sol with lots of shops and bistros on the way Tube nearby and very close to Prado Museum The staff in the hotel couldn't do enough for you They are lovely and certainly make you want to return My only downside was I would have liked to have tea/coffee making facilities in my room. However I didn't ask until the last day and the staff said they would have sorted something out for me so my fault Learn from my mistake you want something ask! Bar and lounge areas very comfortable. Didn't use restaurant so can't comment but breakfast appeared to be served all day! - We would certainly go back and highly recommend a stay

Room Tip: Bear in mind overlooking the courtyard is NOT an outside space so don't think you are opening wi...

This hotel is ideally located a short walk from the city centre which is looking tired and tacky anyway. It is about half way to the Salamanca area which is where the best shops and restaurants are located. The hotel itself is tucked away in an ordinary side street in an area which is worth exploring for its small authentic bars and restaurants. The bar, lounge, restaurant and reception areas are not large but very comfortable and elegantly appointed and decorated in modern style. The rooms are all situated around a central atrium, the base of which is the restaurant. The rooms themselves are a little small we were upgraded from a standard to a deluxe but it was still cramped with little wardrobe space and storage so we ended up living out of our cases. However the appointment and decor are excellent with great wifi, AC and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom lacked a bath (not unusual) but was spacious with twin basins and a shower the whole family could have fitted in and again beautifully appointed. We did not try the restaurant for an evening meal but if the al la carte breakfast service was anything to go by, it would have been superb. A superb breakfast menu was presented by very smart and attentive waitresses and the food preparation was outstanding. We used the bar where as you would expect the price were high but again the staff were helpful and attentive. But for me the highlight of this hotel is the customer service at the reception, without exception they were all outstanding, going out of their way to make sure everything was to your liking and to help with directions and general advice on attractions restaurant and travel. The only downside was the fact that they have roofed the atrium with poly carbonate which when it rains makes a noise like a jet taking off! Fortunately it does not rain very often.

Room Tip: Look for Only you in other locations
