“Great location; almost perfect!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I really liked this hotel a LOT! I was a little leery from some of the pictures... maybe a little too modern for my taste; I usually like something a little more cultural depending on where we are going. It wasn't nearly as over the top as I expected, it just had a nice modern look to it, and it was updated and clean.

By far the best part was location. It was so central to everything we didn't even think about using the metro. And I mean central, we had an hour to kill before we could check into our hotel, and stumbled into the palace! The opera square is a happening place too.

The one downfall was the breakfast wasn't included. It seems to not be a big thing in Spain though, so I can't knock them down too much. It was available, but we didn't check it out at all.

Overall, I would highly recommend... the front desk spoke good English and was very helpful!

Room Tip: The balcony view was pretty good, nothing fantastic though!

A delightful hotel situated up an alley off a main square, where the imaginative modern designs more than off set the small room sizes. Colour coded throughout, enables wandering through a warren of corridors much easier. Central and friendly.
Breakfast is OK, but lots of choice in the square.
Not a room with a view, not at all!

The hotel is a short walk from the Opera Metro station so it's easy to get to from the airport. It's also then either a short walk or short metro ride to most of the top Madrid sights. We were greeted by friendly and helpful people on reception and they all speak good English. Our room was large and comfortable and the bed was good. The room has a safe and good sized wardrobes., it also has air conditioning which worked well and very quiet. The only quirky thing is the shower/toilet is behind frosted glass in one corner of the room, works well but seemed unusual to our reserved British sensibilities. The breakfast was good the one time we used it, the rest of the time we walked to one of the huge range of cafes around the area to try different types of spanish breakfast delights. The hotel does not serve dinner and does not have a swimming pool. We did not miss the pool and we had great fun going to a different place for dinner each night we were there.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street can be noisy at night, especially at the weekend. Not the hotels fault but just...

We stayed here for a weekend trip and loved the hotel. The staff were really helpful and friendly from when we arrived and the room was lovely, clean and spacious with a balcony view of the street. Having free wifi in the room was great and the staff had some good recommendations of where to eat and drink. The hotel is just off the opera square and is really accessible from the airport by the metro and bus. It's also really safe to walk around - each night we strolled back to the hotel at about 4 am and didn't have any trouble at all. The room was a tiny bit noisy from the street at night, but if you planned ahead and brought earplugs that would not be a problem. I would definitely go back and would recommend it to friends travelling as well.

First off the location of Room Mate Mario is just perfect, located 2 minutes walk away from Opera plaza and metro. Able to get to all the major attractions / locations just by walking or a short hop on the metro. Althrough the hotel is very central it manages to be very peaceful inside the hotel as it is located on a quiet side street (we didn't get disturbed once while sleeping). The hotel is very modern with bold colours and pleasant furniture. Our room was the standard double and for a city centre hotel the room was a fair size (not big but enough space), the room had a small flat screen tv and a nice bathroom with shower over bath and importantly a strong water pressure! The room also has a double wardrobe with minibar and safe. We paid extra and booked breakfast which for the money was fine, lots of pastries and meats & cheeses etc. Finally the staff were excellent and made us feel very welcome and offered lots of advice and even gave us a free wifi device to take around the city so we could check maps etc on our phones (great idea!!).

Overall taking into account the location and value for money I wouldn't even consider another hotel if I was returning to Madrid!

Note - great money saver was using the metro tourist passes, you can take the metro from the airport to the plaza opera with just 2 easy changes. Cost the equivelant of just over £20 for 5 days unlimited travel. (Also over 1 day, 3 day & week passes).

Stylish and quiet hotel in a secret location, just a block away from Opera square. Short connections to metro and train. Breakfast very diverse, with Spanish delicacies, cheese etc. Excellent choice for a city break just few steps away from the buzz of Madrid centre.
