The hotel “Only You” fulfills nearly every criteria of a Pretty Hotel: perfect location, creative interior, smart and friendly staff, a good bar and not really expensive.
Currently one of the most creative districts of Madrid is the Chueca quarter. It’s right around the corner from the famous Paseo del Prado and there is a small side street, where there are many small, pretty bars: The name is Calle Barquillo. Right in the middle, located in a wonderful old house, is the hotel Only You, which belongs to the Palladium Hotels Group. Palladium has its headquarters on Ibiza and also operates for example the Ushuaia party hotel. So they know what they’re doing when it comes to targeting young groups. However, the Only You can’t really be called a party hotel. But it’s more of a classical, stylish town hotel. Moreover, it has the perfect size: 70 rooms, a good restaurant and a small, but tasteful bar, in which you can perfectly arrange to meet for pre-dinner drinks. The rooms are – with the exception of the suite – not very large, but chic. Altogether, everything about this place appears to be very chic. You get the impression that you’re residing in a 5-star palace, but the staff is wonderfully uncomplicated and so obliging, that you quickly feel at home. During our breakfast, we were asked, if it would be a good idea to offer two breakfast-buffets – one for the businessperson in a hurry, who prepares himself a coffee out of the machine and quickly grabs a croissant to go. The other one for people who like to linger, ordering various foods and reading available, international newspapers. We answered: yes, that’s a good idea.
All young and the young at heart, who would like to stay in a beautiful quarter of Madrid and an even more beautiful hotel.
Double rooms from 172 euros including breakfast.
