‘Only You’ a new boutique hotel concept for Madrid, Spain

If you are looking for flamenco kitsch or mounted bull heads then Madrid’s Chueca district is probably not for you. This previously rundown district is now home to trendy cafes, bars, fashionable boutiques and Madrid’s colourful gay scene.

This autumn the neighbourhood is set to become even cooler with the opening of a €20-million boutique hotel on Calle Barquillo – Only You Hotel & Lounge.

Created as a lifestyle hotel in an original 19th century townhouse, it will make a chic addition to one of Madrid’s most fashionable districts. Just minutes away from many of Madrid’s main sites including Retiro Park, The Prado Museum and the Reina Sofia, the luxury new Madrid hotel is a great base for exploring the Spanish capital.

Essential to the new hotel concept is the hotel’s lounge which will take centre stage as an adaptable “live” space for art, music and gastronomic talent, where the cocktail menu and the music will change throughout the day, adapting to Madrid’s eclectic social scene.

In charge of the décor, Barcelona-based interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán has cleverly combined colonial colours with a true sense of the Mediterranean resulting in a contemporary, elegant and comfortable space that fits perfectly with the cosmopolitan spirit of Madrid.

The luxury new boutique hotel is an Ayre Hotel, part of the Palladium group, the same guys behind Ibiza’s trendy Ushuaïa, which is known for its summer pool parties.  However, the décor of Only You is very much more sophisticated – its lounge bar is sure to become a cool new hangout for Chueca’s hip and cool residents.
