The DNA: Room Mate Hotels is an innovative company which is based on the idea that the best way to travel is by visiting friends all around the world. Every Room Mate Hotel has a person's name and a completely different personality. In this case your host is Mario, a “vanguardist composer of contemporary music,” which, for all its pretension, actually puts a fairly definite image in your head: arty but quiet, hip and cultured, one imagines, as opposed to people you probably wouldn’t want to stay with, like “hard-drinking rock singer” or “deadly boring actuarial trainee.”
