Regarding people in Madrid talking to you in English instead of Spanish, as pjt33 mentioned, I don't think that has to be a problem if you tell everyone you are there to learn Spanish and specifically ask them to speak only Spanish to you. Not everyone may do it, but I am pretty sure you can find many who will.

It may be the most expensive place to live, but it's also the BIGGEST place to live, which means it has a lot things to do, places to visit, activities to take part in, people to meet etc.

I do agree with pjt33 that you should have a good reason for picking a city to go to. But in the end, your determination in learning the language will matter most with regard to how much you learn.
