It’s no surprise that the rooftop pool forms the epicentre of daytime action during Pride week: Your fictional ‘host’ Óscar is the Room Mate hotels’ sexually ambiguous party animal and an actor (out of work, we presume) who gets off on his urban surroundings and likes nothing more than a bit of glamour, cocktail in hand. No surprise then that he’s roped in Spanish light ambience designer Tomas Alia to design the 74 rooms.

Spread across seven colour coded floors, you’ll get pimped out, beaded orange curtains in some, black & white floral graphics in others, and naked decals for the lucky few. Unlike his siblings, Room Mate Óscar does have a restaurant – the Paris Tokyo bar and eatery – though with its proximity to the Gran Vía’s eateries and smack bang in the heart of the Chueca nightlife, you won’t be short of options.
