Historical Traveller Reviews of Room Mate Mario Hotel
disaster in Madrid (hh Campomanes)from A TripAdvisor Member
aka HH Campomanes - wonderful experiencefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are great with individual a/c -heating, and 2 comfy twin beds. No noise whatsever. Rooms include minibar and staellite TV with internet access planned. The bathrooms are extremely clean, with hot running water. Housekeeping turns out the sheets and toiletries daily.
The staff are very friendly, and speak good english. They have good info on local events / tourist stops, and can help you buy tix to operas / shows / flamencos etc.
Breakfast buffet is included and has: 4 types of cereals, fruit juice/milk/water, sliced cakes, bread with sliced meats (turkey, ham etc) and cheese, fresh fruits, yogurt and criossants. Breakfast is open from 8am-10:30am, and a good stint here keeps you tucked in well until the 2pm Madrid lunchtime.
We stayed there for 4 nights over the christmas break, and loved it. All this comes at a price though, and at 99 Euro a night it is not the cheapest place around. But it is definitely a really good value for the money! We would gladly recommend it to others.
One tip - if you want to do your own laundry, there is a coin operated laundromat (LavaMat) off Calle De La Cruz very close to Puerto Del Sol. The hotel will only dry-clean your clothes, and it's not worth the price. They also will not tell you about the coin op laundry for obvious reasons.

Just come back from a long weekend there - recommend two local restaurants toofrom jorgon
Going for breakfast is like entering a Dr Who set. On the way in you expect to see a Dalek meeting you in the corridor which is a bit worrying. But I also noticed everybody seems to glide around at breakfast, no doubt effected by the same feeling. It gives a new meaning to Buenos Tardis if you are late for breakfast. By the way if you plan to eat the excellent muesli, don't sit on the couch for breakfast - it's too low.
One very good thing about the hotel is its location, 5 mins walk to the palace (watch the sunset during your aperitif), or to the impressive Plaza Mayor, or to the large stores on Gran Via, or the hectic activity of Plaza del Sol and Plaza Santa Ana.
Which brings me to the restaurant recommendations. If you arrive at 9.50pm, you will get in for dinner just before the locals who pile in at 10pm on the dot. We found two good places off the tourist main routes. AlNorte in San Nicolas: modern decor, all wines between 10 and 15 Euros, excellent fish dishes and meat. It was a bit rushed - ask for extra time if you need it. The highlight of the weekend was Gastronomia in C. Santiago. There is no menu outside but don't be put off. It seems to be modern Spanish cuisine with a small hint of Japanese influence. The menu inside is indecipherable unless you have fluent Spanish but luckily we had ours translated into English for us by (I believe) one of the owners. The wine list is to die for and it has a floodlit cellar undeneath. Let them recommend a wine but you will be asked how much you want to spend. We said 20 Euros which produced an excellent wine which went superbly with the meal. These two restaurants are to the West of Plaza Mayor off Calle Mayor.

Top Local Tips for Madrid
walking= it's da only way to go! madrid is a lot smaller on foot than a map will have you believe- no need to use the metro, although it is sexcellent!
La Moderna R.I.P. One of my favourite tapas bars in Madrid, La Moderna in Plaza S. Ana, is no longer. An ugly sheet of rusty metal covers the space where it once was, with no signs of new construction.
Beware of spending a fortune. After the first day/night - shop around - take your time to choose a restaurant or tapas bar. Some are very expensive and not necessarily better than the cheaper places.
