A Designer’s Dream: Only You Hotel & Lounge Now Open In Madrid

November 18, 2013 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

Palladium Hotel Group (PHG) welcomes its new boutique hotel concept, Only YOU Hotel & Lounge Madrid, located in Madrid’s trendy downtown Chueca district. Formally a 19thcentury townhouse, the property now offers 70 unique guestrooms, as a result of a $27 million dollar renovation.  
The hotel’s exclusive and unique 70 rooms are comprised of 44 deluxe rooms, 19 premium rooms and seven Junior Suites, each with its own personality and style. The décor, curated by acclaimed interior decorator, Lázaro Rosa-Violán, combines traditional, colonial aesthetics coupled with a Mediterranean ambience, perfect for the cosmopolitan spirit of Madrid. The guestrooms and spaces are both contemporary, while still keeping the charm and elegance of the historic building. The hotel’s real character is in the design details – the old vs. new architectural contrast and unique lighting fixtures provide a welcoming and home-like experience to all types of travellers.

Only You was built in an original 19th century townhouse, owned by the Marquis of Alhama, a title bestowed by Queen Isabel II in 1865.  Before its transformation into a hotel, the building housed a number of spacious apartments as well as a popular bookstore called Librería Padrino, the façade of which has been preserved along with its original sign.

The gastrolounge, under the direction of Chef Carlos Martín serves a blend of traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine with light meals from 7 a.m. until midnight. Essential to the new Only YOU concept is the hotel’s lounge which takes center stage as an adaptable “live” space for art, music and culinary talent. The cocktail menu and music change throughout the day including live music and DJ sessions, making each guest’s stay even more unforgettable

Only YOU is located at 21 Barquillo Street in one of Madrid’s most fashionable and trendy districts, home to gourmet restaurants, up and coming designer boutiques and vibrant nightlife.  The new hip hotel is an ideal base for travelers exploring the Spanish capital, located walking distance from many of Madrid’s main attractions including Retiro Park, the Prado Museum and the Reina Sofia.  The hotel joins PHG’s Spain-based urban brand, Ayre Hoteles.
