My Best Hotels to Stay in Madrid!

As you know by now, one of my favorite things about traveling is seeing new and exciting boutique hotels. For me, much of the city experience relies on a cozy place to stay. When coming to the Spanish capital, I was on a quest to find the top boutique hotel Madrid. I have high expectations for big cities, so I expected nothing less than the best hotels to stay in Madrid. And that’s exactly what I found at the Only You Hotel Madrid!

It’s rare I find a boutique hotel to be perfect but Only You was certainly one of those occasions! Walking in, the colors of this one-of-a-kind hotel will grab your eye and fill your soul.

Design & Boutique Feeling

A true design star. This is one of the best hotels to stay in Madrid all-around, but its beautiful look is your first encounter. The beautiful modern design mixing palettes from area to area is a balm for the eyes.

The general area of the Only You Hotel Madrid is comprised of many small rooms, each with their own visual style. The main room, with its high ceilings and Veuve Clicquot bottles, is quite Roman, in whites and full of light.

Luxury, light & champagne – loved this oasis!

The living room area feels very British, with a lot of luxury. The hallway has a Twin Peaks-like aesthetic, in red with black and white floors. The elevators have Portuguese tiles on them, the library is super cozy with wooden walls and gorgeous chandeliers. The entire concept here is harmony in the eclectic, and it feels completely seamless.

This is the standard of what a top boutique hotel Madrid should be like. You can tell someone put a lot of love and thought into the concept. The palpable personal touch makes each room a place to get inspired and step into creative mode. It’s easy to get lost in your favorite room and turn it into your hub away from home. An enchanting boutique experience!

Rooms & Other Facilities

The rooms are impeccable, as you would expect from one of the best hotels to stay in Madrid. I loved the little antique details all around, while the room maintained a modern approach. The room was just the right size, and its high wooden ceilings made it look even bigger!

The small balcony was another plus, as it allowed us to see the busy happenings outside. And, despite the noisy street below, the room was very quiet, which is a rarity in this type of scenario. The mark of this spotless boutique hotel Madrid: someone has taken care of every detail!

The use of color in the room was trendy and peaceful at the same time. The blue wall in plush was really interesting, a really unique setting. The dark wood surroundings gave it a distinct air of luxury, beautifully combined with the big doors.

The bathroom, with white tiles and details in black, was modern and lovely. I was particularly fond of the entrance: a beautiful glass door covered by a world map. The Only You Hotel Madrid certainly invited you to travel further!

It always feels extra special when you have your own robe and slippers.

Food & Drinks

We only had breakfast here and it was superb! Instead of a buffet, they have a wide variety of breakfast menus. I particularly loved the healthy breakfast and the 100% vegan one. I cannot stress this enough: one of the things that make a great boutique hotel Madrid is the food! 

We had that first meal of the day on the outside patio, as Madrid woke up with us. A perfect way to start the day at the Only You Hotel Madrid!

We felt very welcomed and everyone were so friendly!


Only You Hotel Madrid has two locations, and we stayed in the one at the heart of Justicia. It was perfect: away from crowds, yet surrounded by small boutiques and near everything. From here you can walk to Malasaña, Salamanca, Retiro Park, and Gran Via.
