Museo Ferrocarril MadridCan you imagine travelling on a real journey on an early-20th-century train from Madrid to Aranjuez? You can actually do this thanks to the legendary Strawberry Train, El Tren de la Fresa. It leaves the Railway Museum, the Museo del Ferrocarril, at 10.00am and returns from Aranjuez at 6.00pm. The price includes the historical value of travelling on such a machine, and it costs 29.90€ for adults and 14.95€ for children.

That is why it’s always good to know that when we receive one of them, they leave our hotel satisfied and share their experience with us with the rest of the world.

Recently, we had the chance to have Isaac and Paula among our guests -the authors of the travel blog, who chose our hotel to stay in Madrid, as part of an activity that they defined as “social-romantic soiree” and during which they interacted with the hundreds of fans that follow their publications in the social media.
