“Great location nice hotel and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

This hotel is well placed yet quite, which is key in Madrid. You don't want to walk for blocks and blocks to get to the major attractions like the Prado Museum, Royal Palace and Plaza Mayor.
The street is one way, so there is less traffic. The reception area is stacked with all sorts of luggage all in white. There are real elevators to the sleeping rooms. Our room was a Deluxe and was large, the bathroom was very modern, they even produced shaving supplies. The TV was an LG connected to WiFi so finding the weather forecast was easy. All rooms I saw faced a courtyard so there was natural light. The staff was over the top friendly and provided maps and hotel reservations. You will like this hotel for location alone.

Nice renovation of an old property in the heart of Madrid's Chueca district. We had the standard room which was small but adequate and fully expected of city centre hotels. However, it was very nicely decorated with every mod-con, even a hair straightener which was my first encounter anywhere. The hotel is well-located to reach all of the sights in Madrid, it is near the Mercado San Anton and also Plaza Espana. The bar downstairs was very happening and attracts even a local crowd. We also tried the restaurant but the menu was very limited and the food mediocre.

Only You is 5 min from Chueca Metro Station and 3 min walk from Recoletos to get to Atocha/Barajas in the area packed with bars and cool boutiques. The hotel is in the renovated old building and has premium rooms facing the street with the small piece of balcony. The standard rooms have windows facing the courtyard and no light coming directly into the room. Standard and premium rooms are small and it is not clear why the higher price is charged for the latter ones. One part of the rooms is covered with wood and another around the bed is covered with the carpet which is not super clean.
The first room I stayed in, the water from the shower was dropping all night long, the TV was not working. The beds are comfy, the service is helping and accomodating. The breakfast is disappointing: you order from the menu and the small portion of the jamon of mediocre quality is served, the churros are moved from the neighbour's table where the guest just left. The muesli portion means cornflakes served for the small kid. The orange juice is freshly pressed and the green tea is a of a high quality.
All in all i felt comfy and loved the place, but the price is high for the tiny room. The lounge offers a good start into Madrid's night. Do not miss San Antonio market for the great selections of high quality jamon also around the corner. @Ladies- do not miss Santa Rita shop on the left side from the Hotel Barquillo 30 - unique !

Then is when the fun starts! Above them all we have our Junior Suites which we will be delighted to show you next time. You will be spechless!

We would love to apologise for any inconvenience you may have experienced in our hotel and would also like to thank you for your feedback because that is the best way for us to learn.

My husband and I recently stayed here for one night after travelling through Spain for two weeks. From the moment you walk through the hotel doors you know you are in for a treat. The reception and lounge decor simply make you want to set down your luggage, grab a cocktail and relax, and the friendliest staff I've come across invites you to do just that. (The staff arranged a very early wake-up call for us, as well as a taxi, and both were exactly on time--when we got downstairs at 3:30am, we were greeted with smiling faces all around). The beautiful decor continues in the rooms--modern and sophisticated with a nice zen feeling. I had the best sleep of my entire trip--the bed was off the charts comfortable and I would happily trade in the custom mattress set I have at home for one of the hotel's (wish I'd thought to take a peek at the mattress before I checked out!). From the hotel it's only a short walk to get into the city centre where you can start your sightseeing or have your pick of restaurants. I would definitely stay here again and only wish I'd had a few more nights at this lovely hotel.

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!

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...

But also it's great to hear that the hotel cleanliness is spotless and we will let our Housekeeping team know about it.

Breakfast is a must at the Only YOU Hotel & Lounge Madrid and, as you said, nothing is too much trouble.
