At a Glance

This cool design hotel offers the best place to stay in the trendy Chueca neighborhood.


Set in a former palace that was built in the 1860s, Only You opened in the fall of 2013 and immediately became a darling of the international press and of the local community. The glamorous and super photogenic interiors (a rhinoceros head hangs over the fireplace in the lounge and the dining room has walls of vitrines holding blue and white porcelain plates) have appeared in glossy magazines as a sign of Madrid’s chic new look.

The hotel declares itself a four-star option with room service, a small gym in the basement, and has added special amenities like the option to have your included breakfast any time of the day. The hotel also offers other nice touches like a jewelry box in the safe and confidence-boosting clothing hangers that read “You look great in that.” Some rooms have fireplaces or wood-beamed ceilings, adding a traditional touch to the contemporary interiors. However, like hotels on the Left Bank of Paris, you have to be prepared for bathrooms that may veer on the small side, and those expecting truly full-service should come for a drink in the bar or brunch (or one of the events designed to draw in locals, like the popular Italian tapas night).

Who Should Stay

For those who want to be in the heart of Chueca, there is no better option. The best rooms are the suites, two of which have their own terraces.
