Red magazine sums up our thoughts on our budget Madrid pick -- “it’s pretty hard to find fault with Room Mate Laura”. Stylish and bright with a central location, the hotel has 36 rooms that have been styled on New York loft apartments.
No two are the same, but expect large colourful murals of Spanish royal Juana de Asutria on the walls of the bedrooms, many of which have balconies. Free Wi-Fi comes as standard and the Duplex Rooms are great for families or larger groups, with a second mezzanine level (the staircases can be a little steep so best avoided if you have young children). There is a mini kitchenette in every room with a sink, hob and fridge (kitchenware is also available for an extra 10€), and a 24-hour laundry room on site.
In the morning, an ample breakfast buffet is served until a lazy 12pm. There is no restaurant here for lunch or dinner, but there are plenty on your doorstep -- Puerto del Sol, Plaza Mayor and the bohemian La Latina district are all nearby. Sightseers will also be able to reach the Teatro Real, the Royal Palace, and the Gran Via within five minutes. Opera metro station is a 3-minute walk away.
During the summer, guests can also make use of the rooftop swimming pool and bar at sister hotel Room Mate Oscar, named by The Guardian as one of the best bars in the city. Room Mate Laura guests can use the pool for a discounted 10€ per room, per day (Monday-Thursday, and 25€ on the weekend). The price includes a glass of cava, towels, sun bed and a locker. Limited users are permitted and it is popular so advanced booking is advised.
