“Great service and decor, small rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

The hotel is well located, has terrific decor, great service, and a very fun bar at the entrance. The one downside to the hotel is that the rooms are a bit on the small side. Otherwise, my girlfriend and I had only positive things to say.

My husband and I stayed here with two other couples for 3 nights. From the first hello from the concierge, to getting over jet lag in the incredibly comfortable beds, to the amazing cocktails in the bar/lounge were all amazing. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The rooms are not big but very well appointed, very comfortable and quiet. The bathrooms are luxurious and the shower is wonderful. We spent a portion of every day in the wonderful bar lounge. The bartenders were very knowledgeable and provided us with delicious cocktails. The hotel is located in a great area of great shops and restaurants not far from the Retiro Park and the 3 main museums - Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia. If you go to Madrid you should stay at this hotel. You won't get a better deal on a boutique hotel for your money and you will feel very taken care of.

Room Tip: We were on the backside of the hotel away from the street. It was very quiet. I think that noisy roo...

Everything about this beautiful hotel was perfect for us! You can tell a lot of thought went into this place!!...Many nice touches!...The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful! We stayed on the 4th Floor - Room was super comfy and quiet! Great beds, linens, toiletries, TV, Wifi....everything!! Extremely clean as well. Location is perfect...loved that it's located on a quiet street with lots of good bars/restaurants, shopping nearby. Best Hotel we stayed in during our trip to Spain!! Will definitely be back!!

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.
