We expected something very different. From the photos on internet the hotel look like a fantastic chic hotel. And in some ways it is. But when we arrived there they gave us an apartment, in another building. So not a room in the hotel. And this room was not so cleaned and curated. Not a place where to come back.

My family and I stayed here (in a termed 'presidential suite' but a basic 1 bedroom apartment) for 4 days in late June, early July. The location was great, within walking distance of many of the main plazas and sight-seeing tourist spots, with a few, good close tapas bars / restaurants. The staff were friendly and as accommodating as they...

The hotel is in a good area, being just a 5 minute walk from Gran Via. There are plenty of trendy bars on the same street and a few mini supermarkets. When we arrived at the hotel we weren't given any information about the hotel, the room or even a local map which I found strange. We stayed in room...

Unfortunately Hotel Abalu in Malasana is not worth of money. Location is very good, Malasana is one of the most interesting areas in Madrid. Staff was nice and helpful but after that many buts...Abalu is not four star hotel, I would say something between two and three.

Great Location If you want to experience the young, funky, vibrant Madrid, then this is right in the heart of where you should be. The bars on this street are crammed full at night. The many local cafe's and boutiques are full of quirky personality during the day. All this just on the doorstep of the hotel. Designer Style Nothing...

Hotel was nice and clean, with helpful hotel staff. Try to get a room in the main hotel though. We were placed in the "residential" part and so we had to be very very quiet because the residents were complaining about the noise. (even though we were just being normal - tv, talking, laughing, etc)

It wants to be a design hotel but no design and quality: tiny chambers, we enter into the room by the bathroom, a tiny glass cabin toilet that does not close properly and without paper dispenser, sliding doors séparating the bathroom (thank you for privacy!) of the room that does not slide and are not airtight, a shower full of...

The location of the hotel was excellent. However, our room was dark and only had a bath with handheld shower head, meaning water went everywhere. The hotel supplied no toiletries which I thought was poor for the price paid.

It was supposed to be a romantic getaway booked by my boyfriend but this hotel just ruined us the entire experience.

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
