Not just in Madrid, but throughout Spain, THE BATHROOMS/TOILETS have changed/improved A LOT! Well, let's say they're more modern, AT LEAST!
You now RARELY see the overhead cistern tanks with the pull-chains to flush the toilet. In the mens room, you also almost never see the step-up to the porcelain foot-shapes to pee/#2 into a hole below.
These two things can still be found, but they're rare, ESPECIALLY in the tourist center of Madrid. Possibly if you go to some of the smaller neighborhood bars in the center, the non-touristy ones, you can still find them, though.
