"BARCELONA SANTS - MADRID PUERT"Mark s. 04/11/2014
"A great trip"Jacob v. 28/10/2014
The train was very comfortable, lovely and on time. We had no problem with our luggage. Lots of storage space. It is certainly quicker than flying from Barcelona to Madrid as you spend so much time in the airports. The scenery was very interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed the 300 km per hour speed. Departure at BCN SANTS was very efficient and so was the arrival at Atocha in Madrid. Easy to get a taxi to our hotel. All in all most enjoyable and to be recommended
"Malaga to Barcelona return"Alice u. 28/10/2014

"good memories"Irakli b. 25/10/2014
I traveled first from Barcelona to Madrid, then from Madrid to Toledo, both trip with Renfe was excelent
"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.
