saludos! just thought i would run off a message about my great time in Madrid in June. I did wind up staying in Apartahotel Tribunal. I had a great time; yes it was in a sorta "crowded" area but i had no problem at all. It was 90+ degrees all week (unusually early, some said). So i had plenty of water, went movies with ac. etc. The hotel had ac. also. The RealMadrid soccer team won that week and i saw them on the balcony of Municipal Building in Puerta del Sol. I saw many neat things (some i had seen before) and was not disappointed. I want to back. thanks for all feedback i got on lodging before i went.
