Madrid, the capital city of Spain

With over one thousand years of history, Madrid is one of the Spanish cities that best reflect the mixture of cultures that have passed through it. Start in Old Madrid to see the imprint of the Royal House of Habsburgs at the Plaza Mayor (main square). Over time, the square has served as market place, outdoor theatre, bullring and even a place for executions.

    Very comfortable trip, excellent service and very clean. Definitely value for money. Very convenient as a group of five to travel by train to Madrid with ease.  
  • "Travelling by Train"

    Very comfortable and wide seats. Very easy getting to both the train stations at Madrid  
  • "Great trip"

    The trip was completely uneventful which is exactly the way it should be. Easy to make booking on the website, very comfortable seating and very cost effective. We had a little problem finding our way around Madrid station as there appeared to be very few signs in English but ground staff were helpful.

    The journey by train was very comfortable and relaxing

    Train travel is great for intercity journeys. unfortunately this service was an hour late departing. no explanation given either.

    I have travelled the train system 3 times on my trip and they were all perfect. Seats were comfortable,they have movies with different languages,and luggage was easily placed. Would happily travel it again

    No complaints about the trip, fast and clean train/ journey  
  • "Overnight Sleeper to Madrid"

    The carriage and compartment were noisy not smooth while in Portugal. the ride in Spain was much better. Perhaps the infrastructure in Spain is higher quality.

    A very convenient, pleasant, comfortable, easy and enjoyable trip to Madrid. Stations at both ends were easy to access and well signposted.

    fast train getting you there with no hassle.Better option than a plane for those with luggage, door to door city CBD locations.

    It was an enjoyable journey. The train was clean, comfortable and the journey, smooth. It left on time from Malaga and arrived in Madrid on time as well. I would highly recommend travelling on this train.
