Fodor's Review

Each of the lodging options in this hotel, in the heart of one of the city's youngest and liveliest neighborhoods, is a small oasis of singularity, created by designer Luis Delgado. His mission was to make each room special, with a hodgepodge of interesting accents: vintage telephones; black butterfly stencils in the White Room; a Thai stone bathtub in one of the junior suites. The apartments (six with kitchen), across the street, have less daring interior design, but are sizable—the largest accommodates nine—and some have a Jacuzzi. To really feel Malasaña's vibe, if you aren't daunted by noise, ask for a street-facing room; if you're bringing the family, an apartment penthouse is a good choice. There's a café, but it doesn't serve full meals. The owners have a no-frills hotel (Life) two blocks away, on the quieter Calle Pizarro, with rooms that sleep up to four people.
