Best Aranjuez Hotels
Aranjuez is a charming little town, south of Madrid. It sits where the Rivers Tajo and Jarama meet. The pleasant year round climate of Aranjuez attracted Spanish royalty away from the hot summers of Madrid and they chose to build a Royal Summer Palace here. Work started in the 16th century and continued through several reigns. Use our advanced filters to search for Aranjuez hotels.

What's Aranjuez Like?
Aranjuez has plenty to entertain its visitors. Originally only the aristocracy were allowed to build and live near the palace. This has left a historic centre, full of palaces, military buildings and churches. Some of these have been converted into boutique and family-run hotels, so you will find a good selection of Aranjuez hotels to choose from. Aranjuez achieves a good balance between nature and man. Beautiful buildings are set against a backdrop of rivers and streams, shady gardens, fountains and open squares. When you visit the Palace, be sure to see the Throne Room as well as the clock and porcelain exhibitions. Admire the impressive art collection as well. Outside, wander from the formality of the Flower Bed Garden to the shady Island and Prince's Gardens. These meander along the river banks. Adjoining the palace is the monumental Constitution Square and the Town Hall. Also of interest are the Royal Barge Collection and the Bull Ring, the first to be built in Spain.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Aranjuez
On warm evenings the locals in Aranjuez enjoy a stroll through the squares and gardens before dinner. Join them and take a glass of wine or beer along with some tapas. Don't try and eat too early, most restaurants keep late hours and don't start serving dinner until 8.30 or 9 p.m. If you fancy a picnic lunch, go to the central covered market in the morning and choose some local cheeses, breads and sausages. Add some fresh tomatoes and fruit for a delicious lunchtime snack. Aranjuez strawberries are particularly valued by the locals.
