Room Mate is an innovative approach to accommodation. The main objective here is to make you feel at your best friend’s house, a welcoming, comfortable and modern place.
The idea came when three friends (Kike, Carlos and Gorka) were having a cup of coffee and talking about the fact that there were no hotels in Madrid that met their needs. Then they wondered where they would like to stay if they travelled to a city like Madrid and they concluded that they would look for somewhere central, with an original interior decor and affordable prices, without the additional unnecessary services provided by many hotels, and with informal, personal service. They went on to open their first hotel: Room Mate Mario, right in the centre of Madrid, near Teatro Real.
Laura, who lives in Plaza de las Descalzas (because everything is personalised here), offers 36 apartments (standard, duplex, duplex deluxe and penthouse) with breakfast service until midday included in the price. All the apartments are decorated in a colourful avant-garde style, inspired by New York lofts. They are equipped with kitchenette, safe deposit-box, minibar, free Internet Wi-Fi access, plasma television with DVD, air conditioning, heating, etc. Other services and facilities are laundry and dry cleaning services, parking garage, meeting room rental, wake-up service and car rental, among others.
Apart from Laura and Mario, this chain of hotels and urban apartments with proper names has several other establishments in the city, all with proper names. As we said, it’s like staying at your friends house.
