We had a brilliant time in Madrid watching Real v Barcelona. The hotel was nice and clean with the use of the air con a must as it touched 42 degrees when we were there! The tickets were waiting for us when we arrived which was great, the atmosphere of the match itself was incredible and although we upgraded to Cat 1 tickets, the view was still pretty high on the 3rd tier of the Bernabeu. But all in all, it was a very enjoyable trip, this is our third time booking with Football Break and would definitely recommend them to anyone.

antastic, what a wonderful time we had. The total package we had was brilliant and so well organised. We flew from Manchester, it was an early start but worth it as we arrived at our hotel just before mid-day. The flight time to Madrid was 2hr 10min. We could have chosen a bus or tube from the airport but there were lines of Taxis so we got one to our hotel. It was a standard fare of 30 euros. We stayed at the Best Western Trafalgar Hotel which was ideal for both the city centre and the football ground. The hotel is small but really nice and clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel was only 300mts from the tube station. We did the VIP package which was brilliant we were really well looked after. The seats in the stadium were four rows from the front on the lower section. In the VIP area the staff were lovely, there was so much really nice food to be had before, half-time and after the match. The free bar included beer, wine, champagne the lot. Madrid is a lovely city and well worth exploring. The Royal Palace is well worth a visit and is cheap to get in. Go on a hop on hop off red bus or take the Metro which is easy to use and safe it costs 12.50 euros for 10 journeys. Visit the Gourmet experience on the top floor of El Corte Englesis shopping store on the Gran Via street for fantastic 360 views over the city and a great choice of food and drink.
Tip: Get to the stadium early to enjoy the atmosphere. The Bernabeu Stadium is only four stops on the metro from the city centre

A very efficiently organised trip with great service from FootballBreak. Madrid is a beautiful city and the Bernebau stadium when local rivals, Atletico, is unbelievable. The atmosphere around and inside the stadium was absolutely brilliant but at no time did my grandsons, sons-in-law and I feel threatened or intimidated. Just extremely lively
Tip: Enjoy the city - it's just beautiful with great restaurants and bars - try the jambonieres - places where you can get sliced dried ham with a beer, coffee etc

1st class service - totally worth booking trips for football matches through yourselves. The atmosphere was electric in the stadium and the seats were amazing. Hotel was nice - however on arrival the guy at reception was totally rude which did not start our weekend very well. However once he left cannot fault the other staff within the hotel. Very central and close for everything. The service from our rep - Rebecca was excellent, left nothing to chance and we were confident all would be in place for our trip. As this was for our sons 21st.
Tip: would recommend getting the stadium tour tickets before you go and take Route 2 hop on hop off bus to get there. We took a 2 day ticket and was able to do the tour the day before the game and then took the bus to the game the next day. The queues were long for tour tickets. Well worth the money.

My rating would have been excellent for the whole trip if it wasn't for the fact my daughters phone was taken from her pocket Having said that the atmosphere in the stadium was brilliant and the seat were fantastic only 7 back from the pitch. The couple of queries I had were answered promptly and advice given. Madrid is a beautiful city and I would highly recommend visiting. If your a football fan I would certainly book through football break. Yes I'm sure you could do the trip cheaper but would you get the seats we did with hassle free effort. I would recommend the stadium tour.
Tip: my only advice is be totally street wise my daughter wanted to see the footballer get off their bus but so did 1/2 the stadium. Very busy, so if you do want to do this make sure you get to the stadium in good time otherwise you'll get caught up in the crowd and this is where my daughters phone was taken. It could have happened in any busy city in any busy crowd. The sad thing for us is that it contained all the stadiums tour photos. :-(
