Having had my Kiev accommodation cancelled this year, my Madrid booking for next 1 June, made two months ago, has just been cancelled at the Ibis Budget Madrid Centro Lavapies.  They say "technical issues" and I can re-book from next week.

Clearly, this is bollocks.  They've only just realised that there's a game on and they forgot to load their super--premium rates, so now want to get out of their guaranteed reservations.

Had mine cancelled, but I don't think it is related to CL final. When you booked it, it said it wasn't even open yet. That hotel has been pulled from all dates, not just the final. All other accor hotels are still available on the final weekend. I think it's more to do with it being a new hotel.

It doesn't make any sense for them to have only just remembered that there's a game on, they would have been well aware of the final being in Madrid as soon as it was announced that Madrid would host it. Also, wouldn't they wait until much closer to next June if they wanted to get more money out of you? Doing so now just gives you almost a year to find somewhere else.

already happened to me. booking .com are useless "we've followed up with the hotel and then cant reinstate"
no , I know, as they've sold it for a higher price, but could you please push them to explain why they cancelled after they'd already taken a valid swipe print of the card ???

Still got my hostel in central Madrid from booking.com

Would be amazed if it stays that way, not holding out much hope, then again Madrid is a much more equipped city than kiev

Prices have gone through the roof the last few weeks. Still got ours which we booked on Booking.com back in August I think.

Booked my accommodation today for the Final, anyone else booked since the ballot being drawn? Praying they don't cancel it last minute like others have had. I got an Ibis on the outskirts of Madrid at a good price.

I managed to get two x Category 3 tickets.

Could a hotel cancel a Non Refundable booking? (IBIS)

I booked on Monday and got a confirmation saying that payment has gone through but looked this morning and still no money has come off my bank account.

Just worried that they'll cancel on me few weeks down the line.

Some hotels will take the money immediately, some x days before check in ect. Could also just be slow to leave your account.

Worried about my airbnb - £200 for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom modern apartment bang in the centre of Madrid. Host is a super host but similar apartments near by are going for €600 per night.

Hopefully she doesn't arse about.

I booked my flights the other week after seeing this post:
City fans cancelling. Just got one on Booking.com
highlighted an airbnb to book after the flights. Got them sorted manc dublin madrid then the airbnb was gone so thought i’d sort a hostel at a later date. Just got round to it today and the cheapest is £65 now. Fucksake. Is there any creative accom solutions for the one night 31st May and we’re flying 6am after the game so we’ll go to the airport.

I got the coach to Kiev so didnt have any of these problems

The parade was meant for the Sunday after last year and with quick turn around for internationals I’d be surprised if it wasn’t pencilled in for the Sunday again
