"Great experience"Graham j.
My wife and I travelled from Barcelona to Madrid. We decided to go first class because it was not much more expensive than second class. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The seats were very comfortable, we received complimentary drinks and a snack and a movie was screened albeit in Spanish. The service was also excellent. The trip took only three hours and we wished it had been longer.
"Excellent"Carmelo t. 05/08/2014
travelled Nice to Paris, Paris to Barcelona on first class tickets. Carriage very comfortable and clean. the availability of power socket to charge phone and laptop very convenient. Needed to change original bookings although you can only communicate by email alterations were hassle free and prompt. Highly Recommended.

"Connecting to Barcelona from "David w. 19/10/2013
Make sure you have pre-booked a seat. There were a lot of people at the station hoping to catch this train - they were disappointed
"Seville to Barcelona by train"David w. 13/10/2013
This train was clean and travelled smoothly. The seat was comfortable with plenty of room. The advantage for me was that I could watch the scenery, without the hassles of finding my way. Despite being a long journey, I could wander down to the cafeteria car whenever I needed to stretch my legs. I would definitely travel this way again.
"Faultless trip"David a. 29/09/2013
Our travel from Seville to Barcelona, Spain was extremely comfortable. Train left and arrived on time to the minute. Facilities were also very good, and the train was quite new and clean.
"A comfortable way to travel"Andrew c. 25/09/2013
I travelled from Barcelona to Valencia on the fast train. It was very comfortable and connected to the metro at each end. Although at Valencia you need to take a shuttle bus to the north station or walk 500 meters to the metro. The signage was not too good but google maps helped
