"Comfortable "Andrew c.
We travelled Madrid to Seville in 2 1/2 hours at speeds up to 290 km/hour Very comfortable and convenient form of travel
"Great way to travel"Michael s. 21/09/2014
We holidayed in Spain. The trip from Barcelona to Madrid was fast, comfortable and without mishap. The opportunity to travel in daylight by land gave us an chance to see some of the countryside of Spain. For trips like this, the fast train is a better option than air. We are non-Spanish speakers, signage in the train stations was clear and easy to follow in Barcelona, very confusing trying to locate taxis in Madrid. Booking via the web was easy although Spanish only ticket had us reaching for the translation book to check details were correct. I will recommend this service to others.
"Perfect ride"Dexter m. 16/09/2014
Taking the AVE train to Madrid was a good decision. Not only it was fast, the ride was smooth and hustle free. Traveling and at the same time looking at the beautiful countryside of Spain made it perfect. I would take the train again should I be back.
"So glad we travelled by train"Ian b. 23/08/2014
We weren't sure what to expect or how easy it was going to be. Bought the tickets to travel from Barcelona to Madrid online, well in advance. It was a very comfortable journey and no messing about when we arrived. Liked it so much, we caught the train to Toledo.
"Great experience"Graham j. 06/08/2014
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.
"lets see how fast we can go"Clive c. 09/11/2013
This was an excellent trip as we had to get from Seville to Madrid. if we went by plane we would have spent a little more time from point to point when you take the waiting to board and the bag collection for the plane into account, you would also have to travel into Madrid from the airport where as the train. you arrive board travel @260-280 klm/ hr and disenbark close to town centre with access to metro its a winner
"Barcelona to Madrid"Joseph m. 07/11/2013
We found the train trip very smooth and very comfortable and organized. Thankyou Joe
"Madrid to Seville"Robyn t. 30/10/2013
Train was comfortable, on time and the most efficient way to travel between Madrid and Seville
"Cadiz to Madrid"Merridy r. 23/10/2013
We had a great trip from Cadiz to Madrid, the 4hr 30mins went so quickly. The seating was all forward facing which was good and we had plenty of room. Would take this trip again tomorrow if we could.
"Easy travels!"Nancy h. 17/10/2013
We were extremely delighted with the efficient service of Renfe from Malaga to Madrid. The speedy train was clean, roomy and punctual.
"Train from Madrid to Valencia"Luciana s. 12/10/2013
A very comfortable trip and there were no problems with our tickets or train schedules everything was punctual and I would always recommend train journeys throughout Spain and Italy.
