Reviews & ratings Bilbao - Madrid
Fast and comfortable, and a great way to see parts of Spain one normally does not see as a tourist
Taking the train is much more enjoyable than a flight. The train was clean and the seats fairly comfortable, and even though the journey was 5 hours it didn't feel that long.
I was misled to think that all 1st class tickets come with food. Was disappointed to find out on board that there is more than one type of 1st class tickets; in fact I was embarrassed cos I had other guest-travelers whom I purchased the tickets for. Renfe should make this clear in their ad.
We exprerienced mechanical breakdown during the travel. Maintenance shall be enhanced. No headphone provided and we were not able to enjoy the movie shown. It is possible to increase the speed of the train?
buy your ticket early, you will get a good rate for the trip. The train trips are always more comfortable compare to the bus trips. Renfe is no exception to that. Clean. Good connection between Chamartin and Atocha.
the staff are awesome, and look like they are working hard. the only downside is the seats they are really uncomfortable, other than that, it was a good trip, the amenities were clean so was the train
This was a very convenient and easy way to travel. I made use of disabled assistance which was very helpful and efficient.
