Room Mate Oscar is a hip little hotel just steps from the Gran Via. My partner and I stayed here for four nights during a recent trip to Spain. Dance music plays in the reception area essentially non-stop from what I could tell, and the decor is reminiscent of a nightclub. Our room was quite large by European standards, and... More

Stayed for the weekend in March 2015, I was in room 307. The staff were very welcoming and spoke English well. I arrived early so they let me leave my bag. The room was very trendy and smart and clean. Shame i had no view but not really a problem. The rooftop bar was very nice and the staff up... More

The hotel is stylish, the service was perfect (late checkout without surcharge), room was clean, breakfast buffet with everything as in a 4 stars hotel, located in middle of downtown in a lovely neighbourhood, and the room was quiet (6th floor). Next time in Madrid, I will book this hotel again.

The hotel is well located and decently clean. Service is OK but not great, the terrace bar is nice though. For me this is a hotel that wanted to give itself some hype, but is so outdated from a comfort level, fake leather breakfast area, airco not working, very small bathrooms with the toilet just next to you. Very fine... More

You can see they tried hard in the beginning but it's a bit dated now. The stuff at the reception are not that friendly, the rooms are ok and clean enough but not that amazing. Overall, I found it to be a bit disappointing. It's very well located, though.

Great location and friendly people, rooftop bar is excellent and they provided us with a mobile wifi hotspot free of charge which is something I have never seen before. Highly recommend this place. Rooms are clean and stylish if a little basic

Stayed here for 4 days in July 2014, the check process wasn't the greatest as u arrived early in the day from a flight from the U.S. I requested an early check in but no rooms were ready and the hotel lost power which delayed the check in process another hour.

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
