“Beautiful but a little impractical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

This hotel is beautifully designed, in a great location and good value.
We enjoyed our stay here in a junior suite which included a couple of trips to the rooftop pool and bar.
The room was huge and visually stunning but the designer had prioritised looks over practicality e.g. there is no headboard on the bed which is in the middle of the room, so your pillows fall behind he bed, the couch takes up a large space but has no back support so you can't sit on it for long, and the toilet doesn't have a proper door so you can hear what's going on in there from the bed!
Also be aware you have to pay 25 euro per day to use the pool, which is fine if you want to hang out there for hours, but makes it uneconomical if you just want to have a quick swim.
Breakfast was nice and the staff were really friendly.

Having stayed at Room Mate sister hotel (Mario) we learnt about their roof terrace, so intrigued we hopped across town to check it out. What awaited us, simply completed our stay in Madrid. Cruise ship esque waiting staff, head to toe in white, providing willing lounger service whilst we dangled our feet in the pool watching to our right the Sunset illuminate the Madrid skyline and to our left the rising moon, momentarily both in unison, a perfect end to the day & one that will remain in our memories

Stayed at Room Mate Oscar for 3 nights whilst in Madrid as part of our trip around Spain. We generally pick our hotels based on their design and location and Oscar was no exception.

The design is interesting, modern and trendy. The lobby sets the scene with its amazing feature walls, lighting and cool white sofas, and the location is central and ideal for exploring all that Madrid has to offer, on foot.

We booked an executive room, which was large and nicely furnished, with lime green features contrasting with the crisp white walls and bedding. The bathroom was a good size too, and the walk-in shower hot and powerful.

The roof-top bar was ok, good views but a bit pricey and the service very slow. Reception staff however were great and spoke good English.

Location in Chueca was awesome - lots of bars, restaurants and funky shops in the surrounding streets, and within walking distance of many of the main galleries, museums and plazas.

Great way to end our trip.

What an amazing place. Excellent location. Very friendly staff and great clean rooms.
For the price this is amazing.
You'd probably want to be on very good terms with who you share your room with. The frosted glass toilet and shower is not the most private !! Would absolutely stay again. Didn't realise you need to book a spot at the pool so make reservations with front desk early !!

I have been coming to Madrid regularly since 2008, and have stayed at Oscar every time, and every time, it exceeds my expectations. It is in a brilliant location, minutes from Gran Via, and very close to 2 Metro stations. One can easily walk to casual or fine dining, drinking and shopping, and the great museums are also very walkable. The rooms are very cool, modern, and comfortable, with terrific bathrooms and amenities and fantastic AC. The breakfast room has a great view over the square and the breakfast itself is generous and would satisfy all tastes.The pool deck on the roof is nothing less than spectacular. This is my favourite hotel in the world and I always feel like coming home when I stay. Many thanks to the great staff that keep making this happen.

If you want to stay in the middle of the action in Madrid . you are in the right place . this hotel is in the center of Chueca where the Madrid nightlife happens . The hotel is small but upscale with excellent and high end decoration and rooms of a good size , flat screen tv , free wifi, well stocked mini bar, beautiful bathrooms, comfortable beds and pillows , modern and minimalistic. The staff is helpful and the breakfast have a good selection. we stayed only one night i cannot talk much about other facilities like the pool or the gym . But i will recommend this hotel as a good option in Madrid.

A great friendly, trendy inexpensive hotel just off the Gran Via in the centre of Madrid. I had a large room, big bed, total silence and a great shower. What more could you want in the centre of a big busting city. the check-in process was a little slow but the staff were friendly. I return to Madrid frequently and will definitely want to stay here again. Excellent!!
