Found Mario in the extremely designer/trendy Wallpaper Madrid guidebook. Initially thought we couldn't possibly afford a stay but a look at their website changed that thought: at under 100€ per room per night the hotel is very good if not excellent value.
From what I glimpsed while walking on the corridors, there are several styles of room, all with very colourful wall paintings. I found all really good-looking and would like to thank Room Mate Hotels' concept designer for a job well done! The hotel lies next to the Spanish National Opera and a metro station and two blocks from the Royal Palace. The hotel's breakfast buffet will keep you well-fed until the afternoon and was served until 12 o'clock. There's a cosy Greek restaurant in the same block, also within walking distance are large branches of El Corte Ingles and Fnac, the famous Plaza Mayor and Puerta Del Sol squares, La Latina (working class neighbourhood) and Chueca (gay neighbourhood).
The staff was very helpful. All in all, a great stay :)
