I recently came across the Hotel Abalú, a former hostel turned tiny boutique hotel in the heart of Madrid. Located just off the Gran Vía, its location is pretty ideal. I love that each room is decorated differently. Some are muted and dressed in neutral palettes while others veer on the quirky side. Each guestroom is stylish, but maintains a sort of homespun vibe (think Anthropologie meets Flea Market Chic). To me, staying at the Hotel Abalú would be like staying in a very stylish friend’s guestroom for a few nights.
