Situated near the Royal Palace and the Plaza Mayor, Mario belongs to Room Mate, a designer chain of boutique hotels in Spain that prides itself on cutting-edge interior design and a serious eye for fashion to be found in its properties.
From the get-go, Mario looks as if it springs from a home décor magazine. The entryway is decorated with a Philippe Starck-esque hanging black-crystal chandelier and a cream shag rug. Hallways are lit up with fluorescent fish tank lighting too cool for school.
In rooms, dream-inspiring headboards are painted in a chic manner, backlit for a special effect. Fresh green apples are used as decoration on bedside tables. On the writing desk sits a black Lucite-like lamp with white 1970s-era scoop back chairs. Flat-panel televisions are hung above them. Glass doors encase modern bathrooms with their deluxe furnishings.
The breakfast area is equally impressive, with designer lights we've seen on the pages of ELLE Décor. And no fretting, breakfast lovers: your favorite meal is included in the nightly rate.

Puerta del Sol, Madrid, Spain
About the Room Mate Mario neighborhood
The Puerta del Sol is the geographic and historic center of old Madrid, within walking distance of most of central Madrid's tourist offerings. Calle Mayor, a major commercial and business street, runs to the west of Puerta del Sol, and to the south are tiny, dense streets packed with tapas bars, restaurants and cafés. Many of Madrid's best hotels are on the Puerta del Sol, while pensions can be found along the side streets.
