Doing the same myself, just going to Madrid for the day and then early morning train to Barca on the Sunday morning, hopefully find somewhere decent to watch the match

If you need to get back to barca then coach innovations are doing a bus back there for £79 leaving Madrid at 02:30

Yes, every single time the notification pops up, terrified of reading my emails in case it's a huge hassle.

It's like being at work.

I booked flights through Opodo, who have sent me multiple emails since with the subject line "Information about your booking." In each case it's just been a message about discount car hire and the like, but it hasn't failed to make me jump so far.

I've got a hotel room going spare on the Friday night if anyone needs it. Hotel Cortezo cost me £380 - got let down on the saturday somewhere else so ended up booking something with a 2 night minimum.

If anyone wants this hotel I've already paid so just looking for the face value - unfortunately high at £380 for the night for 2 single beds although sure you can squeeze on more in

Hotel in a good location. 5 minutes from plaza mayor and close to metro stations

If you think outside of the box then you can find accommodation in the city. I have 3 nights 3 people 450 eu . Which is not bad considering the hotel prices.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

To be fair, I saw him at almost all (if not all?) the home CL games this season... and an away. Our autocup tickets are two rows apart.

I was only pulling his leg, hence the friendly last line and well wishes :) goes without saying that the hotels and hostels that have cancelled and hiked up the price are no better than touts, perhaps worse, and should be shamed.

Let's all book rooms , hotels in Madrid for the same weekend in about a month or so and let's all cancel a day before .

The apartment that cancelled on me, listed themselves back up with 1096€ (was 295€ when I booked). Let my mate book it , it has a free cancellation until 29th of May. Guess what will happen on 29th of May ;)

I would make sure your mate does not have the money taken out of his account, that has happened to me from booking.com before and was pay at property and free cancellation. was taken out before the date.

Don’t forget the time on free cancellation is Madrid time, so an hour earlier, 22.59 UK time

Yes, the main things is that I've heard that booking.com usually sorts you out after situation like that, but after being in contact with them they said there is nothing that they can do, because they said that proeprty tried to get the money out of my credit card and said it didn't work, which must be bollocks, cause I always use the same credit cards (even used it today) and it sure had enough amount of money on there..  Seeing it listed 4x times the price today, I really don't care, hope they burn...

Yeah suggested him to use a credit card with little amount of money, so they can't charge him :)

Even if they don't take it they may put a pending charge on your account that reduces your available balance. I passed over my Porto hotel booking but still had a 'pending' charge on my account for weeks after.
