Cozy yet vast, traditional yet modern
The Room Mate Laura, resting in the Descalzas district, prides itself on having a modern outlook. Rather than providing a restaurant, the rooms all come complete with their own kitchen. Some of the finest restaurants in the country surround the building, which makes finding somewhere good to eat an easy process. The cozy rooms at Room Mate Laura sport unique decor and all feature a balcony. From the moment guests arrive, the 20-meter-high lobby provides a warm, welcoming feeling, one which the staff strives to continue for the entire visit.
3 Reasons To Stay
  • Fabulous location, situated in Plaza de las Descalzas, close to Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor the Royal Palace and the opera 
  • Located in the business center of Madrid and equipped with conference/meeting facilities
  • Modern building, constructed in 2006 to conform to the local traditional 19th-century-style architecture
Room Mate Laura Rooms

New favorite hotel

Really liked this place, location was perfect, just off of Playa del Sol, incredibly easy to get to off the Metro. Lobby didn't make a great first impression, sort of funky modernista european with staff behind what looks like control room, but loved everything else. Bed was probably the most comfortable of all the places I stayed in Spain, room was spacious, nice bathroom, very cute balcony. Would definitely stay here again.

Cute but better options available at this price

Summary Cute, but for the same price we stayed in another Madrid hotel that was far better. The Good The décor was charming and unique. Easy walking distance to many historic and travel worthy sights including the palace (though at the opposite end of city center from the Prado and museums). They upsold us to a suite because it was ready early. It was very a very spacious bedroom, living area, loft, and second balcony for the price. The Bad We were disturbed by loud drunks who yelled in the streets and toppled trashcans at 4AM. Has not been maintained well since it was remodeled. The small streets were surprisingly full of car traffic and loud. Had the firmest and least comfortable bed of 3 hotels we stayed at in Spain. The shower was tiny and in disrepair.

Good location

Good, central location. The loft room was spacious but cold, in temperature. The air con units only provided cooling, not heat. The continental breakfast was simple but satisfying. And wonderful that they had such expansive breakfast hours.

Great Location!!

Different and unique hotel. Bigger rooms than usual for Europe. The front desk was most helpful and very friendly. Suggested great restaurants and made reservations for us. Location was great as we were able to walk to everything we wanted to do. Street noise really wasn't a problem for us. Enjoyed the hotel breakfast. The bathroom had a very bad moldy smell. We paid for a deluxe room with kitchen but did not get that. Didn't realize it until the day we left that we were supposed to be in a deluxe room. So be sure to get what you pay for!

Ultra hip hotel in excellent location

We were upgraded to a "duplex" which had a loft with an extra bed/futon and small desk upstairs. Very cool design and nice amenities. We paid $127 and that included breakfast for 2 people. Minutes from shopping, royal palace, and Santo Domingo metro station. Would stay here again and will also look for smae brand of hotels in other cities for future trips.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

Most small shops and bars do not take credit cards. There are plenty of ATMs throughout the city for getting cash. Bring 10 Euros if possible to get started on the metro. For some reason none of our credit cards or ATM cards worked in the metro ticket machines at the airport. We ended up with 46 Euros in coins after using a 50 Euro bill!
