3 friends, Kike, Carlos and Gorka, having drinks mentioned how there weren’t any hotels in Madrid that would satisfy their needs and those of their friends. So they started wondering what kind of hotel they’d like to stay at if they were going to a city like Madrid or Paris. They came to the conclusion that there should be one in the heart of the center, with an original decoration and a reasonable price, not saturated with extras and services that are seldom used and with a natural personal feel. Because the only thing you really need while “exploring” a city is a good breakfast. So they opened their first hotel, Room Mate Mario in the center of Madrid next to the “Teatro Real”. Impressed by the enthusiasm showed by their clients and the media they decided to start a chain of hotels and urban apartments.
