“A real gem in a wonderful city”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

I got back from my vacation in Madrid (which took place between the 4th and the 9th June).

This hotel was a real gem!!! Everything was just perfect:

Location? Couldn't be better:
Usually I try to avoid central places, since they tend to be extremely noisy at night, but exactly as all the other reviewers said, the hotel is located on a little side street so it's very quiet despite the fact that it's very close to the royal palace, to Plaza Mayor, to Puerta del Sol and to Gran Via. If you want to walk to Paseo del Prado, where Madrid's famous museums are located, just walk through San Jeronimo street from Puerta del Sol and you'll arrive at Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and at Neptune square (from which you can walk to Museo del Prado).
You'll also find a lot of places to eat on the nearby Calle Arenal.
If you're a vegetarian, don't miss the wonderful Yerbabuena at Calle Bordadores, 3 (which is about 5 minutes walking from the hotel).

Room? Perfect! Clean, quiet, spacious and well equipped. Great breakfast!

The staff was amazing: very friendly, kind and efficient

When you want to explore such a wonderful city like Madrid, you'll need a perfect hotel, and if this hotel is available for the dates of your vacation, search no more!

Technical note:
Although you can arrive from the airport by the metro, I highly recommend that if your flight lands at terminal 4 to take the train Line C1 of Renfe Cercanías (working hours: 5:59 to 22:28) to Príncipe Pío (the last station) and then line R of the metro to the Opera station. The hotel is about one minute walking from there.
The train was spacious, very comfortable and efficient and it was much easier options than taking the metro from the airport (which I did the last time I was in Madrid)

Please feel free to contact me if you have any question regarding this hotel or my stay in Madrid!

This hotel is a very god value and location. The hotel is on a very quite street and a nice neighborhood. The hotel was located a block from the metro and a 5 min walk to gran via.
The room we had was an executive room (the one with 193 SQ meters). Beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. The breakfast is worth the extra money. The breakfast does have a hot entree. Bathrooms very large and clean.

The staff provided excellent guidance and was very helpful.
We had room 202 and I highly recommend.

Cannot go wrong with this choice.

If you are looking for a chain with all the bells and whistles this is not the one you want. If you are looking for a comfortable room, clean and very well located at a great price this is it.

Room Tip: Room 202 or any executive room (mid size room)

This hotel is modern, chic and contemporary with an excellent location (2 mins walk from Opera station) within walking distance to most major tourist attraction. Room was clean and staff were friendly and able to converse in English very well. Would definitely stay here again.

Recently stayed for 4 nights and have to say Room Mate Mario exceeded our expectations.
Great location, 2 minute walk from Puerto Sol and Plaza Mayor, with the Gran Via a very short stroll.
Rooms were great, breakfast very good and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.

Highly recomended.

I spent a week at this hotel when visiting Madrid last month, and I was not disappointed! I had a good-sized room which was clean & comfortable, and which had a big, comfortable bed! As well, I was able to sleep well, considering that the hotel is in a central location in Madrid. Furthermore, the staff were courteous & helpful to me. My only complaint was the free Wi-Fi offered here. It didn't always work properly during my stay. Still, I highly recommend this establishment to anyone contemplating a visit to Madrid!

As other reviewers have noted, this hotel is in a fantastic location for touring the main attractions - which are mostly within walking distance. The Opera is 50 metres away, the Royal Palace about 400, Puerta del Sol a 5-minute walk, Plaza Mayor a bit further, and the major Art Galleries and the Retiro Park are about 30 minutes walk. There are lots of Restaurants off Sol and over towards Sanat Ana - all within easy reach. The hotel is comfortable and very modern inside (even though it is in an old building). Rooms are adequate and comfortable, and it would be a great base for a 2 or 3-day stay in Madrid. We will certainly be back.

We stayed for 3 nights at Mario. The hotel is in a perfect location, almost on Plaza Isabel and very close to the Opera metro station. The last time we visited Madrid we went to and from the airport by taxi which cost a small fortune. This time we decided to try the Metro- great decision ! Despite having a couple of changes it was really easy and cost only €20 Euros return for the 2 of us, we wouldn't consider a taxi again.

We loved the hotel,it is very modern with a boutique feel. Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. The room had everything you need - ample cupboard space, mini bar, lovely shower with toiletries, hair dryer and very quiet air conditioning. I notice other contributors saying that room and bathroom were small - I don't agree!! Both were absolutely fine- who goes to Madrid to stay in a room anyway?!
The staff were lovely, professional, very helpful and friendly.

The breakfast was very good, a nice continental selection of breads, meat, cheese, fruit, yogurt, cereal etc and also hot options of eggs, bacon and sausage.

The hotel is walking distance to all of the major attractions, the Royal Palace is a stone's throw away.
A must-do is the Mercado San Miguel. You can easily spend a couple of evenings here eating tapas and drinking lovely wine!

We also visited the Cafe Central , Plaza Angel and heard a wonderful jazz trio. There is live music here most nights 9-11pm, it costs €13 each and is definitely worth a visit. It gets busy so you may want to book. We didn't eat there but the food looked great too.

We would thoroughly recommend the Mario and would definitely return ourselves.
