I went here late yesterday afternoon to experience the rooftop terrace. The views of the city are wonderful and the place is decked out very well, but it all seemed rather pretentious. There's a VIP section with white sofas and a man with a headpiece (as if he were out of a Bond movie) making sure nothing gets out of... More

We were three couples staying for three nights which we quickly changed to four as we so liked the hotel & sightseeing in Madrid. Our rooms were spacious, clean, had everything one needed on holiday, very bright, modern with a funky design. There is a terrific bar on the top floor with great views over the city. It was obviously... More

We stayed there for a 2 night stop on our way back to Mexico city... It was simple and amazingly located in the barrio de chueca, which allowed us to be able to walk everywhere from there and really enjoy the little time we had in Madrid. Small room with the necessary amenities, nice cleaning service and overall very modern... More

I have stayed twice at this hotel. I love the great location which is central to most of Madrid. Several subway lines are within a block or two. Rooms modern and large as is the bathroom. Pool on the top floor is small and you have to pay even as a hotel guest. Front desk staff is friendly. Only complaint... More

Óscar is the quintessential boutique hotel - a small hotel in a happening neighborhood, a lot of design from the funky lobby to the stylish rooms. There's fabulous music everywhere and seemingly everyone that works there is gorgeous (though this may be attributed to Spain itself!). Everyone I interacted with, even when e-mailing the hotel before I arrived and including... More

This is an ideally-located hotel in the heart of the LG-district of Madrid, La Chueca. The rooms are spacious and full of vivid colours. Unfortunately, the decor is dated as are the amenities. What was extremely disappointing is that we stayed there Sunday to Wednesday and had booked the Suite for our last night in Madrid the following Sunday but... More

This hotel can be rather expensive and maybe not worth it. Your view can be a brick wall and a fan, as it were for some of my colleagues. I got lucky and got an executives room. It tries hard to be "cool and trendy". Too hard, I'd say. Modern style rooms, like future rooms looked like in the nineties.... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
