“Clean, trendy and great location”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

No complaints whatsoever. Rooms spacious and furnishing and decor smart and trendy, though possibly a little minimalist.

However, good free wifi, great location, good generous and helpful staff are all strong positives.

It's not luxury but would be happy to stay again and at the prices, was perfectly happy here. Will be one of the first I check on my next visit to Madrid.

Stayed December 2013, traveled on business

The hotel and rooms are stylish, comfortable and have nice touches. Nice big bathrooms. Great location on the edge of Chueca and close to the Gran Via metro station and walking distance to everything. Can't wait to experience the hotel in warm weather.

Amazing location and so funky hotel! Extra charge for rooftop pool is bit too expensive (especially on weekends). Front desk staff extremely helpful and always with smile :)
Rooms are specious but bit dated and used, some upgrade is essential in the nearest future

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

First, the good stuff. The location is excellent for exploring Madrid, especially if you want to explore some of the gay bars in the Chueca area. Also, i found the staff to be friendly and polite.

Unfortunately, we were placed in rm 108, which was an access room for people w/disabilities. The paint is faded, the grout in the tiles is dirty, and the bathroom door has warped from the poorly deaigned shower, which has the ability to flood if you are not careful. And the noise. I knew this was a 'party' hotel, and read the reviews about being on the 7th floor. The first floor is almost as bad! Being right above the restaurant, the music, clanking dishes, and other loud noises didn't stop until 3am.

Maybe if you get a better room, your experience will be better, but we won't stay here again, sadly.

Totally in love with Oscar! Our romance started in August when Oscar offered me sunbathing at the pool of the rooftop and sipping mojito (first, second, third...) with the view on the sunset. As the autumn came our innocent affair turned into a serious relationship - I decided to move in for 4 months. Many long hours spent under the rainshower, many long nights in extremely comfy bed and even more sleepless nights in the rooftop bar! But it is not about us only.... Many thanks to all other roommates for making this time so special! Gonzalo, Alba, Lolo, Sabrina, Laura, Stefano, Katja,... David ;-)

Room Tip: Definately worth to upgrade to the executive/superior room - with the view on the plaza or even bett...

Dear polaca_guapa,

Is so great to have guests like you for such a long stay and it's even better when a relationship of complicity is created between workers and guests.

Is a pleasure for all of us to still have you in Óscar!!

The hotel Oscar was in excellent location in Madrid. The staff was so friendly, professional and helpful. the modern rooms are so nice decorated and very clean. The whole hotel is very nice decorated. Is one of the best boutique hotels in Madrid. Also the hotel offer free car service from 9am to 9pm to the whole city of Madrid.The roof with pool are very nice with nice panoramic view of the city. I suggest this hotel to everyone and hope to stay again to this hotel.

Great hotel for Madrid. My friend has been to Madrid 30 times and typically stays at this hotel. It's clean, it's cool, it's in the gay neighborhood of Chueca with tons of bars and restaurants everywhere, quick walk to Plaza del Sol, rooftop bar and pool open in the summertime. And you MUST go to Tigres right around the corner to order two canas (small beers) which results in enormous plates of food for free (little sandwiches and french fries). The staff is really nice and helpful and the rooms are clean. My only complaint is that the light in the bathroom is non-existent, but that seems to be typical of Spanish hotel rooms and bathrooms; it's difficult to put your make-up on at night.
