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.
Cool, Vintage Chairs in the Lobby
Beauty Bar Restaurant and Lounge
Of course, I love the Imperial Trellis in this room!
They seriously chose the coolest mirrors for this hotel. This one is so different from most of the starbursts I’ve seen.
I could certainly do without the “mood lighting”, but I think the rest of this room is great.
A soothing, neutral palette mixed with iconic chairs makes for a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.
More fabulous mirrors!
How cool is this headboard? It just so happens to be in my color du jour, peacock blue, too.
I love the vintage telephone in this room.
Another room with several great touches
I love the gorgeous venetian mirror in this bathroom.
There are so many fun accessories in this room!
