For chic boutiques, hip restaurants and bars, and a hotel that offers eye-catching design, head for the 4-star Only You Hotel & Lounge. The fashionable hotel in the Barquillo district of Madrid is housed in a 19th-century former palace and has been remodelled by leading interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán.
The hotel is on Barquillo Street, which The Daily Telegraph says “divides the hip Chueca and stylish Salesas neighbourhoods”. The Prado Museum is less than a 20-minute walk away while the Royal Palace of Madrid, home of the king of Spain, is about 25 minutes away. The Santiago Bernabéu stadium, home of Real Madrid football team, is a 15-minute taxi ride from the hotel (or 20 minutes, if you take the train and walk) and is open for tours.
Eating options include the YOUnique Restaurant, which is open for lunch and dinner and serves a selection of traditional fresh Spanish dishes with a contemporary twist -- look for Ibizan-style octopus, Ibérico ham and smoked lettuce rolls with veal. The hotel’s lounge is open for breakfast (brunch on Sundays) and a bar with live music stays open until 2am. There is a 24-hour on-site gym and a beauty room offering a selection of treatments (extra charges apply).
The stylish rooms range from Deluxe (the standard) to Junior Suites -- one has a large private terrace. All rooms at the hotel have iPod docks, beds with goose-feather duvets, hair straighteners and a daily newspaper.
