“Very good 2-star”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Wonderful reception staff, large safe to fit laptops, good internet connection, very good breakfast, good location.

The mattresses are low-quality and barely acceptable; they make a slight crunchy sound and are rather short for tall persons. Noisy fan in bathroom (but at least there was a fan).

The hotel claims to be a 2-star only, so from that standard it is very good. It could almost pass as a 3-star.

I have found this hotel via tripadvisor so wanted to leave a comment and other travelers would benefit the way I do … I generally look for a clean place ( extra clean ), somehow modernly designed , centrally located with a service standard to match my bill..I can easily say Room Mate Mario meets all these perfectly well and would never hesitate to come back again.. Firstly you can not beat this location , steps away from Teatro Real , Puerto Del Sol , Mercado San Miguel and Plaza Mayor .. longest would take 5 minutes on foot.. just in the middle of all attractions yet its very peaceful … Rooms are nicely decorated and spotless clean , I have stayed in a single room which is just enough size.. Bathroom is also quite good with some cool amenities ( wasabi shampoo ) … A mini bar , safe and a tiny size LCD TV ( little bigger than a tablet :))) is available in the room .. I have not tried the breakfast but just checked the room and the buffet , it all seem reasonable given the 7 Euro price. I wanted to try some authentic food in the morning so just went out. My check-in and all concierge needs fulfilled perfectly and never had language problem .. 2 of the ladies I met at the reception desk were great explaining everything I need in a very friendly way..Thnx to them .. For the price I paid , I do not think I can find a better place … this is my second time in Madrid , If I come back again , will not look for a place , This is it…highly recommended ..

Our room, with a balcony, overlooked the pediatrician walkway and Constitution Square. We were third floor & bothered not one bit by the almost all night street noise. In fact it was quite entertaining. Great central location and only a short walk to the stop for the Madrid City tour bus - and that is a must. We felt very safe walking the various side streets and looking in shops. We were warned by friends to watch carefully for pick pockets & we had no trouble. This hotel served an excellent buffet breakfast.

Delightful 3 night stay at Room Mate Mario. The hotel is ideally located just off the Plaza Isabel II, and around the corner from the Royal Palace. The rooms basic are compact, but clean and comfortable, and have every amenity you need. The hotel is peaceful and in a quiet location, which is surprising as it's so close to the hustle and bustle of Calle Arenal. The staff are gracious and friendly, and cannot do enough for you. The breakfast is enjoyable and satisfying.
For those on a budget it's a perfect hotel for a short break in Madrid!

Excellent location . right in the city centre. The hotel is very close to Metro train station . Lots of restaurants and market small shops around. The rooms are not spacious but comfortable . Excellent service. Hotel staff is very helpful . The room decor is very attractive. I would prefer to stay in this hotel for my next trip. We went for excellent Flemico show in one of the evenings which is located very close to this hotel

Room Tip: Take a road facing room .

Roomate mario- modern motif with friendly helpful staff. The hotel is 50 meters from Opera metro, which is right next to the theater that is in front of the Royal palace. Its a great location, that is easy to get to Plaza Mayor, Plaza de Espana, the Palace, and Puerta del Sol (shopping). There is a burger king and Opera pizza (they offer take away or eat in) less then a minute away for cheap eats. The room has tv, ac, hairdryer, shampoo, soap and body lotion. The breakfast might be included in your price (or its 6.95 if its not). Its hot and cold items, large selection (well worth the money. My only complaint is the room doors are paper thin so you can hear people in the hallway, but the TV or the bathroom fan muted out that noise for me (it might bother you since the halls are not busy with only 54 rooms). I would recomend this hotel and would stay here again if I visit Madrid.
