An excellent way to get from Madrid to Barcelona or vice versa. Clean, comfortable and well priced method of transport. Departed and arrived on time with booked seats it is definitely the way to travel in Spain and I would certainly book it again.

We were very happy with our train journey from Madrid to Cordoba in October. The online ticket purchase and entire journey went very smoothly. The train left exactly on time and the carriage was comfortable. we would be very happy to recommend train journeys in Spain for ease and convenience.  

"Granada to Madrid"

  Mary-anne s.  31/10/2014
Luggage storage is always a problem, just not enough space. Seats were comfortable and carriage service was regular. Access at both stations was very good. (This was not a High Speed Train.)

Took the fast train Madrid Barcelona, train left and arrived on time, it was no hassle travel without the "airport stress". I recommend the rail service.  

"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
