Hello everyone! What a great, great website! I first lived in Madrid in 1986 when I was 14 (on the corner of Calle de Maldonado and a street I've since forgotten) and have been in love with it ever since.

Many, many years ago in 1990 my girlfriend and I stayed at the Hotel California, which I believe was at Gran Via, 38, in Madrid. It appears to be the Hotel Atlantico now, which looks far more posh than I recall the California being but also has the architectural appearance of having been the Atlantico for some time now. So much time has passed that it's hard to suss out one way or the other. I was wondering if any of you had stayed at the California, remember it, have a pic of the sign, a matchbook, etc.? Any help is appreciated. Cheers!
