Subject: Madrid and London

I have booked some flights to head to Madrid for 4 days later on this month.

So far I have only been to Barcelona in Spain and have never been to Madrid.

Having done some prelimanary research on where to go what to see etc, I would appreciate other Ziners recomendations on what are the must sees durign a 4 day trip? What did you find most attractive? Where are good places to go eat and drink?

Additionally, while I spend a lot of time in London I have never stayed in a London hotel. Can anyone recomend a hotel in central London (or with excellent connections to Central London) for in the region of 60GBP to 70GBP per night? I am looking for this on behalf of a friend who will be visiting here.

Your feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks very much. Mark Sukhija, in London
