Madrid is considered to be an extremely LGBT-friendly city—in fact, it will be hosting WorldPride 2017. If you’re looking for hotels that specifically state they are LGBT-friendly, you’ll find that many are located in the neighborhood of Chueca, known as Madrid’s “gay” neighborhood. Here’s a list of some of the best.
Situated on the edge of the Plaza de Vázquez de Mella in Chueca, the Room Mate Óscar has 74 rooms and a gorgeous rooftop pool and bar. The rooms are airy, bright and modern, and the hotel itself is decorated with style, juxtaposing geometric prints with bold colors. If you’re in need of a splurge, the suites have incredible views of the city.
This hotel, known for hosting famous writers and poets (hence the name “The Letters Hotel“) is an LGBT-friendly property located on Madrid’s busy Gran Vía. Some of the 109 rooms feature outdoor terraces, others have private jacuzzis and many have poetry or stories written on the walls. The hotel also has a library where guests can relax with a book or a cocktail in hand.
The Only You Hotel has two locations in Madrid, but the Chueca location is specifically known for being LGBT-friendly. This is the spot to stay in if you want that curated, boutique experience. With 125 rooms decked out in blue and white, the hotel is definitely one of the most stylish on the list. The chic experience starts the moment you walk through the blue awning and head into the lobby, checking out the sleek interior patio furniture to the right and the bar mixing up delicious concoctions to the left.
