Traveled from Barcelona to Madrid. It was good experience. The trolley with coffee came only once. I think it could be repeated. Request online booking more friendly. Renfe starts in English, but by the time you come to the payment it goes Spanish. Pl check Over all it was good.
"Renfe train travel Madrid-Barc"James Joseph a. 29/08/2014
Travelled with family. Travel was very comfortable. Had a very nice experience.
"Barca-Madrid"Fadi c. 23/08/2014
I was pleasantly surprised by most of my experience. Excellent train. Comfortable etc. Two comments: (1) If we could choose our own seats as a family we would have taken the ones with a table in the middle, facing each other. (2) The English movie on the TV was both in Spanish (doublage) and had Spanish subtitles. As a courtesy to non-Spanish speakers, you could keep the English Audio on one of the many audio channels already available. Thanks
"Valencia to Barcelona"Kirsten v. 21/08/2014
Trip was comfortable, easy to get on train, no queues in Valencia to get on train. It is only very cold in the trains, but there is plenty of space and trains are fast, nice and clean.

"Satisfied"Maarten s. 16/08/2014
We used RailEurope to travel from Montpellier to Barcelona (and back). The trip went very smoothly and we enjoyed it. Comfortable seating, enough space, nice little bar.
"Madrid to Barcelona "Alan Todd v. 12/08/2014
Easy check-in close to town, comfortable and quick train to Barcelona. Easier and quicker then air travel.
"Value for money"Rashid s. 04/08/2014
I traveled with my wife from Barcelona to Madrid. We purchased tickets almost 2 months before thats why we got a good price. Everything was ok and we had a pleasant trip.
"Bright lights"Jo b. 10/10/2013
Please turn the bright lights off on the train at night. I caught the train from Barcelona to Madrid overnight and was hoping to sleep but the bright lights were left on all night which made sleep very difficult. This made my journey uncomfortable. If this one thing were resolved I believe the comfort of my travel would have been much higher. Please consider this hospitable practice. Thank you.
"Excellent Service"Andreas s. 26/09/2013
Thank you Rail Europe for the excellent service. You made our train travel from Barcelona to Madrid pleasant and comfortable.
"Barcelona to Madrid return "Nicholas e. 21/09/2013
Good return journey from Barcelona to Madrid and back, tourista class.. Comfortable seats. Speedy journey. Preferred to flying which overall would probably have taken longer. Would have been nice to have English subtitles on the film that was showing. The shared blinds (with the passengers in front and behind, meant that if one person wanted the window blinds closed it affected everyone. I wanted to see the view and that wasn't possible as some else wanted the blinds closed. Good facilities in the on board shop. Screaming children meant the headphones handed out free were worth their weight in gold !
"Kiwis on Italian trains"Vicky r. 20/09/2013
We had a great trip from Bari to Rome. This was a fast train and arrived in Rome on time so we were able to get to the airport in time for our transfer to Glasgow. Seats were comfortable, We loved the scenery - a good way to see a bit more of the Italian countryside. A good experience.
