Hi... 

I am posting this topic to share my bidding attemps for a 5* Hotel at Royal Palace - Plaza de Espana - Old Town Area.

In reality, the area that I wanted is the Prado Museum - Atocha Station - Retiro, but, the price of the bids in that area for 5* hotels is so high, so, I tried 5* in the Royal Palace - Plaza de Espana - Old Town Area (without sucess) and, tomorrow, I will try at my wanted area (Prado Museum - Atocha Station - Retiro), but for a 4* hotel.

I made a research before, and, the two 5* Hotel at Royal Palace - Plaza de Espana - Old Town Area, has the following rates per day: USD189 (Melia Princesa) and USD 234 (NH Palacio Tepa).

The dates I want is: CheckIn 09/jun/2014 and CheckOut 13/jun/2014.

My max value per day is USD 100.

Madrid has 7 areas without 5*: Barri del la Estrella, Carabanchel Alto, Comillas, East Madrid Suburbs, Madrid Southwest, Puerta de Hierro and Bajaras Airport. 

I have not used the system of permutations because this good amount of areas withou 5*.

Here is my failled bids:
Royal Palace/US$69
Royal Palace/Barri del la Estrella/US$72
Royal Palace/Barri del la Estrella/Carabanchel Alto/US$75
Royal Palace/Barri del la Estrella/Carabanchel Alto/Comillas/US$78
Royal Palace/Barri del la Estrella/Carabanchel Alto/Comillas/East Madrid Suburbs/US$81
Royal Palace/Barri del la Estrella/Carabanchel Alto/Comillas/East Madrid Suburbs/Madrid Southwest/US$84
Royal Palace/Barri del la Estrella/Carabanchel Alto/Comillas/East Madrid Suburbs/Madrid Southwest/Puerta de Hierro/US$87
Royal Palace/Barri del la Estrella/Carabanchel Alto/Comillas/East Madrid Suburbs/Madrid Southwest/Puerta de Hierro/Bajaras Airport/US$90

At this point, the total with the rates was US$411, avarage rate of USD103 per day (with the rates), so, above my expectations.

I tried the bids trhu biddingfortravel link!

So... I think I don't have nothing to do in this conditions... Probably my max value is so low for 5*, even in the =1emRoyal Palace - Plaza de Espana - Old Town Area.

Someone suggests something in that area? 

I will try tomorrow in the =1emPrado Museum - Atocha Station - Retiro for 4* Hotel, then I will share here.

Thank you all!

It's way too early to give up on this. Priceline requires patience. Just reserve a cancellable backup to protect against a rate increase.

Please continue to bid through our link to Priceline and do not bid through a Priceline email.

Yeah... I wondered that too, but wanted to try anyway... Because of that, I think it's better I go try the 4* just in the area that I really want (Prado Museum - Atocha Station - Retiro), isn't?

Hi Again...

I am posting this topic to share my bidding attemps for a 4* Hotel at Prado Museum - Atocha Station - Retiro Area.

I made a research before, and, the three 4* Hotel at this Area, has the following rates per day: USD 142 (NH Nacional), USD 165 (NH Paseo del Prado) and USD 120 (Tryp Atocha).

The dates I want is: CheckIn 09/jun/2014 and CheckOut 13/jun/2014.

My max value per day is USD 80 (for 4* hotels) (or a little higher).

Madrid has 2 areas without 4*: Barri del la Estrella and Carabanchel Alto.

I have used the system of permutations.

Here is my failled bids:

Bid: / Prado Museum / USD 63
ReBid: / Prado Museum / Barri del la estrella / USD 67
New Bid: / Prado Museum / Carabanchel Alto / USD 71
ReBid: / Prado Museum / Carabanchel Alto / Barri del la estrella / USD 78

I tried the bids through biddingfortravel link!

So... I think I will try again tomorrow, increasing slightly the value of the bids... The historic that I saw here in the forum, and others informations I got at the internet, I think that the value of USD 80 is reasonable...

Someone suggests something in that area? I will try tomorrow in again (maybe wait a little more??).

Thank you all!
