“This is it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

I have been looking for a boutique, luxe hotel in Madrid that is not too expensive, and this is it. Well located next to Chueca and all it's lively, fun shops but an easy jog to El Parque Retiro and close to shopping in Salamanca, Only You is convenient. But most important is that is is comfortable -- nice beds, rooms not too small, very tastefully done in decorations (not your parents' hotel but not your college kids' either), super hip bar (with 37 gins) and good breakfast. And service is over the top good - friendly, accommodating to every request no matter how strange, it is part of the new breed of service hotels ("what you want, we won't say no") The handsome/beautiful reception staff is was really efficient and helpful. Rooms are not huge unless you upgrade a lot. My new favorite, I almost don't want to let the world know.

Room Tip: The rooms that have windows to the interior courtyard are a little bigger than those to the outside...

Loved this hotel. Really did. Highlights: Interior design is beautiful - all navy and white - very fresh. Original building features like the refurbished wood floor staircase and painted wainscotting are mixed with inventive, new moments like a tiled elevator wall done in a reimagined Chinoisery style. This is true boutique hotel. Very welcoming, helpful staff who smile and always on hand! Comfortable bed, the best we had in Spain. An atrium lobby area to sit and have a coffee is an oasis from the city. The bar lounge is cozy and actually has a bit of a scene in the evenings, no doubt because of the fun staff and beautiful space. Interior rooms overlook the lobby atrium (and are very quiet). I didn't see a view room, but next time I will ask for one. The Chueca area is cool - reminds me a little of Le Marais in Paris. Only You is situated on a quiet street with good tapas bars and boutiques near by. Do the hotel a favour and call them directly to book. Staff speak several languages. I used Bookings.com and understand they take a big commission.

Room Tip: I'd go for an exterior room the next time, but if you're a light sleeper, an interior room i...

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent 4 night stay at this very hip and cool hotel. We loved everything about it - top notch service by the very attentive and engaging staff, beautiful decor, delicious breakfast, very comfortable bed, and the ideal location in lively Chueca convenient
to restaurants, shops, Plaza del Sol, Plaza Major, Retiro Park, and other major sites. This was our first time in Madrid and we are so pleased we chose this hotel. Many thanks to the entire staff for helping to make our stay so memorable. HIghly recommended.

Room Tip: Junior Suite with Terrace was lovely. Also recommend the Premium Balcony Room.

The title says it all! And this hotel does have it all! All the best, that is; quiet, unbeatable service, brand new everything, beautiful modern decoration, awesome location, very well frequented bar, super comfortable, high water pressure shower, all the bathroom stuff anyone might need, attention to details, free wifi, high tech flat screen tv with internet and best of all the rates are completely affordable!

My room smelled like some type of spa quality tranquil mint scent all the time and I felt like I was in heaven! It's perfect for women traveling solo or business travelers.

This was my first time in Madrid and I loved this city 90% because of "only you". And trust me I'm very picky when it comes to hotels! Very hard to find such jewel, specially in Europe!

I am so impressed I actually want to live in this hotel! Needless to say I recommend and will be back 100%

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a weekend. I had chosen it because we got a good deal, the area was exactly the one we wanted plus I had seen pictures of the interior and thought it was really nice. Very smiley helpful staff greet you in a not very conventional hotel that is very eager to make you feel at home.
The rooms are very clean, quiet & cosy, have many diferent lighting setups, big confortable beds, free decent wifi, aircon that works and have lovely bed linings as well as a smart tv full of entertaining apps.
The elevators always seem to be 2 seconds away from you wich is also pleasant.
The bathroom is fully equiped with thick and soft towels, spacious shower with abundant water flow, hair dryer and steaightner as well as full amenity assortment.
We asked for the express breakfast that was only 6€ and we were very satisfied: we got a good orange juice, a nice cup of tea with soya milk and a variety of buns with butter and jam and honey.
To me the location is unbeatable, right in the middle of Chueca, but in a nice calm street.
We are very pleased and we will definately come back here next time we come to Madrid.

Room Tip: The cheapest rooms have a window to the inside of the hotel, not much daylight but still very pleasa...

On our arrival in Madrid via the AVE from Malaga, we took the metro Chueca, where we entered a square from the station and found a few cafe's. After a little confusion about which way to go, we found the hotel in an area which looked at first sight a little run down, but not so far from the Metro.
Two large blue china vases adorned the front entrance and we entered the hotel through automatic doors into a whole new world............
We were greeted by a friendly and polite doorman and were shown to the reception, where we had a warm welcome and smiles. After the normal admission procedures we were shown to the elevator disguised as part of a tile look wall.
We arrived in our room, where the decor was equally unusual and pleasing, a large double bed in a good sized room and bathroom. One thing that impressed me was the extremely high standard of cleanliness, white sheets and bedding and not one bit of dust anywhere. The aircon was really efficient and we were there in a heat wave, there was a stocked mini bar, phone, docking station, wifi, dressing gowns, safe, jewellery box, hairdryer and straighteners, with all of the normal toiletries.
Downstairs, there was a bar and lounge area with very unusual and pleasing, bright and light, decor . We had a really nice tapas and cocktails in the bar and a wide range menu for breakfast.
We found that the area was quite central for many restaurants and bars and we felt safe and was not as bad as we first thought when we arrived.
To conclude, all of the staff were very friendly and polite, the hotel was exceptionally clean, with unusual decor and had all of the amenities that we required. It was central for dining out, although there was a restaurant and bar in the hotel and was in easy reach of the Metro.
