Reviews & ratings Lisbon - Madrid
Very comfortable a great way to travel
My special thanks to the crew ! Very friendly at the restaurant !
My trip from Lisbon to Madrid was the return leg of the voyage. My wife and I showered at the Spa facilities in the hotel at which we stayed prior to boarding the 9:30 overnight train. Boarding in Lisbon was far more chaotic than it had been in Madrid: although we were on the platformprior to the train arriving, we received conflictingdirections from staff which had us running up and down the platform looking for the coach which contained our sleeping berths. We finally located the car at the very end of the platform where we had to lift our luggage across a nearly two foot gap to enter the train. Despite the hassle, the train is clean, comfortable and reasonably-ppriced. We'd definitely book again.
Clean toilets The seat allocated to me cannot be adjusted to recline position. The adjuster is broken I feel secure during the trip.
This was the overnight train from Lisboa to Madrid and we made a huge mistake not paying extra and booking beds instead of seats. Travelers with weak buts be ware!
RailEurope booking of train was fine. We took a night train from Lisbon to Madrid. It was very confusing booking the seats, not because of raileurope per se, more had to do with seat selection so I don't know if this was a raileurope or renfe issue. However, we ended up having to book turiste class seats rather than a sleeper and woke up to adult and baby bed bugs in our seats and crawling all over us. When we tried to tell the conductor they told us to sit in our seats because the train was full....which we did not. Gross.
This *particular train was good. The beds were comfy although the room was super tiny and you could not sit up at all. Maybe the top bunch a small person could sit up. Nice little bar, nice server, nice workers. Recommended though! There's a window in the hallway you could somewhat have privacy to just hangout. Maybe the bar, not sure if the bar closed by itself but not the room. *check out my music! - SoundCloud.com/MoodBeside
The train is comfortable and on time.
Pretty good ideia for everybody who is doing Europe trip, you stay all night long. Also the train is safe and kind of comfortable.
Very good value for money. But uncomfortable seats in Tourist class did not allow to have a rest especially having this train at night. Convenient arrival/departure. Lavatory was not clean. Good and not expensive restaurant. In general, nice trip.
Many passengers like me were not happy when we were told about the situation .Your staff at Lisboa Oriente was rude, arrogant and was agitated when she had to repeat the situation. She definitely irritated many of us. We were only told to take the train to Coimbra and then take a 2 hour bus ride to Formoso to catch the train to Chamartin. There was no proper co-ordination from the staff and there was a mad rush catching the bus. What made it worse was that I do not speak the language. Fortunately the staff on board the train to Chamartin was helpful
The train was dirty and the second class seats were terrible for an overnight train. They were difficult to recline and the recline was very uncomfortable for an 8 hour trip.
Trains were very old and noisy, no footrests, chairs were uncomfortable, reading lights didn't work. I wouldn't recommend anyone for overnight travelling, I have seen better inner city trains than these trains.
In general the service was good. The train was confortable enough, but for a long trip it could be better.
