We were lucky to board on the Strawberry Train on last Sunday. We were going to Aranjuez. The train was an old one with a steam engine. The interior decorations were all back to 1950-60's. I think the young people, in particular the children must find the journey very interesting and the very matured adults like me would remember our... More

Surprise was given when we waited at the platform for an hour and was notified the original locomotive broke down. The company finally used a new electrical model to bring me to Aranjeux. The whole trip was boring and the town is not as beautiful as Toledo. I was even regretted to bring along with my camera. Well, I do... More

Very disappointing and poor value for money. Old carriages with wooden seats, but not a steam train. The hostesses in period costume hand out a little plastic punnet of strawberries to everyone on the train. At the station in Madrid everything seemed a bit disorganised and you have to decide between the palace or the garden tour. I thought the... More

Ok, where to start... Booking: complete nightmare. Meant to be able to do this at Atocha Railway Station. Don't even go there... Eventually found our way to the railway museum - which is where it leaves from but you can't book tickets there. A very very helpful young lady helped me to book the tickets online - in Spanish -...

Tren de fresca (Strawberry Train) is a great (but expensive) way to leave Madrid and see the countryside, but you pay a big price in terms of time, comfort, and Euros. The 2 hour ride is in rickity old wood cars that allow you to feel every bump and bruise. The views are great..the strawberries, not so much. Cost is... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
