Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Trendy hotel with a hip reputation near Plaza Santa Ana
  • Stylish rooms with sleek furniture and Roy Lichtenstein prints
  • Rooms have high ceilings, good natural light, and minibars
  • Suites and Duplex have bathtubs with fantastic views
  • Hip all-white lobby with avant-garde artistic touches
  • Free Wi-Fi in rooms and free breakfast buffet
  • Double-paned windows cut down on street noise
  • Rooms stocked with popular magazines

Cons

  • King mattresses are two twins pushed together (typical of European hotels)
  • Double rooms are on the smaller side
  • On-site restaurant only serves sandwiches, wraps, and salads (but can be prepared to go)
  • Sexy glass showers in the middle of the room provide no privacy
  • Some complaints of street noise on the weekends

Bottom Line

This 37-room boutique is part of a stylish yet affordable chain that offers a youthful, playful design at a good price. All rooms have pops of bright blue, yellow, or red, along with modern furniture, sleek track lighting, and Roy Lichtenstein prints. Bathrooms are also modern, though the showers and tubs lack privacy and are quite revealing (some showers are in the room while some tubs have direct street views). The Duplex is a hip upgrade, with a spacious living room, big outdoor balcony, and mini pool. Conveniently located near Plaza Santa Ana, this hotel offers comfortable rooms with high ceilings and lots of natural light, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and minibars. However, there is no bar or fitness center on-site.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the happening Huertas neighborhood, near Plaza Santa Ana and within walking distance of Puerta de Sol and Plaza Mayor

The Room Mate Alicia is located on a smaller street In the Huertas district. The hotel is very close to the action without being right on top of it, so there's less street noise at night. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and shops. This area is considered by many to be the best nightlife and culinary scene in the city. It's also close to Puerta de Atocha train station, which serves the high speed trains.

The capital of Spain is a vibrant, multicultural city located right in the center of the country. The Cuatro Torres business area's additions to the city skyline (four sleek towers, including a hotel and corporate offices) give an idea of what Madrid is rapidly becoming: a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city -- albeit one that preserves its century-old traditions.

  • 22-minute drive to Madrid-Barajas Airport
  • 3-minute walk to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor
  • 7-minute walk to Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum
  • 8-minute walk to shopping on Gran Via
  • 13-minute walk to Reina Sofia Museum
  • 13-minute walk to El Prado Museum
  • 14-minute walk to La Latina, a nightlife hotspot
  • 14-minute walk to Retiro Park, Madrid's most famous garden
  • 16-minute walk to Atocha train station
  • 17-minute walk to Plaza de Oriente, home to the Royal Palace, the Royal Theater, and Sabatini Gardens
  • 16-minute subway ride to Templo de Debod Park, with great views and an original Egyptian temple
  • 26-minute subway ride to Plaza de Castilla, the financial district

 Bottom Line

This 37-room boutique is part of a stylish yet affordable chain that offers a youthful, playful design at a good price. All rooms have pops of bright blue, yellow, or red, along with modern furniture, sleek track lighting, and Roy Lichtenstein prints. Bathrooms are also modern, though the showers and tubs lack privacy and are quite revealing (some showers are in the room while some tubs have direct street views).
