I guess I go to Europe once a year now. La di da!
Madrid has all these affordable boutique hotel apartments. With lots more space for a very similar price to a standard European shoebox hotel room. It can't be this good, right? And lots in Tenerife to be found, too. Though, we're opting to stay in Santa Cruz, so less in the mix.

I dug out the journal I kept on that trip and wrote a lot about the old-world charm of Madrid, the cobblestoned streets, old buildings, large plazas. And the food, of course. Though, I was less adventurous in those days.
I was also impressed by how walkable the city was, so in picking a hotel this time around, I'm hoping to be a little closer to the Royal Palace. Which is the neighborhood I want to spend a little more time in.
But, really... I just can't wait to eat Serrano ham with every meal. Would that be over doing it?
