Flights and Hotels:
Madrid-Barajas Airport is located to the north-east of the Spanish capital. There are plenty of flights available from London to Madrid, with return flights for under £100. The main airline that flies to Madrid is easyJet, as they depart from London Gatwick and Luton and the journey lasts for a little over two hours. There is also the option to fly with Air Europa from Gatwick or British Airways from London City Airport, although the price of these flights, especially the latter, is generally higher.
For travellers with a reasonably small budget, the two-star accommodation offered by Hostal Maria Alcanzar II could be ideal. Accommodation is available for as little as £25 per night and its city centre location makes it perfect for exploring the city before or after the footy.

Rooms are available from around £65 per person per night, for the hotel located in the heart of the city.
If you have a large budget to dip into, then another Best Western hotel, the Best Western Atlantico is well worth considering.
