Mario was the first one in Madrid to start the new hotel philosophy devised by entrepreneur Enrique Sarasola and his partners, Carlos Marrero, Eduardo Sanzol and Gorka Atorrasagasti. Based on affordable prices, they offer a casual and personal attention to guests -who are considered room mates- welcoming them warmly so that they feel as if they were staying at a friends house. Staying at Room Mate Mario means having a true sensory and aesthetic experience, inspired by the hip hotels in New York City, London and Paris.
The interior design, by Ángel Verdú, is innovative and minimalist, defined by geometrical lines, binary colours, few of which are dun, and indirect lighting, creating a cosy atmosphere. The interesting fact is that all of this sophistication is contained in an 1870 building right in the heart of Madrid. In line with the other roommates, Laura, Alicia and Óscar, Mario also lives in the core of the city, in the same building where the former hotel HH Campomanes was housed, just 50 metres away from the Royal Palace and Teatro Real.
Its rooms are spacious, warm and furnished with the trendiest interior design tendencies, with headboards by Tomás Alía and lamps by Phillip Starck, as well as being fully equipped with all the latest trends such as LCD screens and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
