14 November 2016 – Expansión
Only You has come a long way since the end of February, when Abel Matutes Prats first introduced the future Hotel Only You Atocha and the project was still a building site. Now the scaffolding has been removed, and the second hotel owned by the brand that belongs to the Palladium Hotel Group is ready to go.
The establishment is expected to be opened within the next few days – definitely before the end of November – to join the firm’s other Only You property on Calle Barquillo in Madrid. This new hotel, located on Paseo Infanta Isabel, will have 206 rooms (192 doubles and 14 suites).
Designed by Lázaro Rosa-Violán
The interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán has worked with the Matutes family once again and has made the property its own. The firm has created an industrial environment, with old fashioned tiled floors, cobblestones, retro styles and multi-spaces, all under one roof.
The lobby, restaurant and reception all merge into one and are full of typical Rosa-Violán features. (…). In this vein, the hotel will house a retro American-style gym, which will offer a personal trainer service and running club.
Here, one sometimes feels that one is not in a hotel, but rather in a fashion store. A sensation sought and found. The dream of any hotel is to turn its restaurant into a pilgrimage destination, even for non-guests. Hotel Only You Atocha will have its own Trotamundos restaurant, with the gastronomy of chef Javier Mora, alongside Jon Giraldo and Jaime Liebermande (chefs from Spoonik in Barcelona), who will present a mixture of cuisine from Latin America, Asia and Spain.
The bar will also be large, and will offer a comprehensive wine list and cocktail menu. There will be a Mamá Framboise (cake and pastry) stand in the lobby of the hotel, with recipes from Alejandro Montes.
The top floor will house a Youniverse restaurant, which will serve breakfast. The space has different corners and themed trolleys with tables both inside and on the terrace. In addition, the hotel has a well-appointed treatment room managed by Caroli Natura Bissé and adaptable meeting rooms for events. (…).
Only You Hotel Atocha is located opposite the train station of the same name.
