“nice little hotel in strategic location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Our friend suggested the Mate Mario when we looked for a hotel in Madrid. We liked it. Friendly staff, great location & clean.
Although the room is not really sound proof. We could hear all the sounds in the corridor while you were in the room..

Dear Meilinda,

Thank you so much for your review!

You were suggested by your friends, and maybe you could suggest it to a new friend, it would be like a joke!! Suggest Mario to everyone!

Next time, if you have any problem (sound in the corridor), please, let us know in order to move or show you another room in another area.

Please, feel free to contact me directly if you need any help.

Best Regards,

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

We stayed for 4 nights in September. The location is what attracted me to this hotel when booking. The Royal Palace is within 3 blocks and the metro is less than five minutes away. Madrid is a very walkable city, but the proximity of the metro makes it even easier to get around.

Our room faced a courtyard and was at the very end of the hallway. Very quiet. Avoid rooms 116 and 117 as they are on the hallway to the breakfast room. Those could be a little noisy if enough guests go for breakfast at the same time. Speaking of breakfast, it is offered between 8 am and noon. Typical continental spread, but there is enough variety to please most people.

The decor is a little interesting, kind of reminds me Ikea or Droog...my husband didn't like the bed and the wi-fi was a bit annoying. You had to keep logging in constantly.

Overall, a good value and you get candies when you check out.

A nice surprise! the rooms are comfortable, with tasteful design of furniture and bathroom. The hotel is ideally situated, right in the center within walking distances of all touristic sites. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A great address to recommend.

Everything was great!
It was my first time at Mario.
Reception staff were most obliging and helpful. Good breakfast. Good wi-fi.
Rooms with comfortable beds and beautiful design, very clean.
Few steps away from opera, castle, puerta del sol, market san miquel, mayor.
Is the perfect place to stay for a visit to Madrid.
I would stay here again and recommend it highly! Book early to get the lowest cost rates.

Dear Iraida,

Thank you so much for including your nice remarks about Mario in Tripadvisor.

You have included some of the most important points for us: our staff, our breakfast (till noon!! It is not necessary to wake up early with Mario!), our wifi (free), design and cleanness.

Get always the best rates directly with Mario.

So a BIG THANK YOU from the center of the town!

Enjoy Madrid, staying in this very friendly and perfectly located (some steps down to Opera metro station) young/fresh hotel. Not much room for improvement, as everything is really nice... :-) beside the cool room (nice interieur, good design), also the breakfast buffet is awesome (somewhat different, to what you often find in Spain).
Take a stop here, when visiting Madrid!
