Madrid is well known for being a beautiful and open city and you will easily find gay friendly and gay hotels in Madrid. [no_toc]
It’s a bit odd to need to talk about being gay friendly in Madrid and we would use the term quite loosely here.
The city is so open and such a safe haven for gay travellers that we can say with confidence that pretty much all hotels will welcome all types of traveller without batting an eyelid.
It feels like asking the question ‘is your hotel gay friendly‘ is a bit redundant in Madrid and you would probably get some quizzical looks for asking – it feels ingrained in the culture here.
However, there are always hotels that are naturally more popular with the gay community, whether because of their brand or by their proximity to the gay area of Madrid.
We have focused on hotels that are in close proximity to the city centre and Chueca (the gay district). Here is our shortlist of gay friendly and gay hotels in Madrid to book for your next trip:
10 Gay Friendly & Gay Hotels in Madrid
Axel Hotel Madrid -Adults Only
If you are looking for a hotel that falls in the category of ‘gay hotel’ then look no further.
Having stayed at Axel Hotels in Berlin and Gran Canaria this would be our first choice, especially since it is specifically aimed at gay travellers and brands itself as ‘hetero-friendly’.
The rooms are stylishly decorated, insta-worthy and come with the very cheeky ‘do disturb’ signs if you want to hang them on your doors!
The hotel has a small rooftop pool with a trendy rooftop bar to go alongside it.
It is also adults only which we like when we travel.
Room Mate Oscar
Located right in the gay district of Chueca (the gay district of Madrid) and with one of the best rooftop bars around, Room Mate Oscar is another great choice.
It is also one of the few high class hotels in the area with a pool.
