The Hotel is a 15-minute drive from of Madrid Central and the room is the largest we have had on the tour. It is clean and really suits our situation here. Wi-fi is free down stairs and we have been told we have to pay almost 10 Euro per 24 hours, which is extreme compared to all others.
In actual fact we found with experience that the User name and codes given for the downstairs area actually work upstairs so in fact there was no cost. The security safe and all amenities are working with a question mark on the air conditioning.
Because of the faulty air-con, we were offered another room for the second night, but decided to continue with the allocated room. The weather was in our favour and our discussions with staff and reception show that it is well run. All meals have been great. Taxi fares to the city are about 10 Euro and the Bus (Route 146) back to the hotel was 1.50 euro's. Would be happy to return.

We left Barcelona about 8am for Madrid and had a long drive ahead. Kate has been finding the coach travel a little harder than most of us and she was really pleased with the seat allocation today. John and her were able to lay their seat back and then they rested their legs over the side door entry balustrade; hence making sleeping …
... these beaches are also exquisite (although the water a little cold being the Atlantic), the surf great and during the months of July and August it's a buzz with numerous music festivals. From Portugal we will then swing back into Spain and return Black Caviar to Madrid via Seville, Valencia and Barcelona. Then it's time to swap the automobile for a train to head South to the ferry town of Algeciras to catch the ferry over to Morocco. Already the 'rough plan' has proven ...
... up on things I wasn't able to catch up on. I had a great talk with my host mom though, and discussed Spanish and we talked about the culture, where she recommends to go, how she feels, about elections and even about what kind of music she likes. It was interesting to get to know her, and get to know her personality.
We had fish again for dinner... Yes I'm thankfully for food but this is like the 5th day with fish! But it's ...
... the Matador, a dark comedy in which he is an estranged assassinator. A small digression at this point, remembering one of our afternoon Spanish lessons with our teacher Gema who is also a professional clown, giving us an exercise on characteristics and reflexive verbs such as, I wake up at... I go to bed at.. One of the exercises was what are the characteristics of an assassinator. The funny part was that this article pointed our all the activities ...
