Reviews & ratings Paris - Madrid

  • "Andalusian saga"

      Sujit j. 
    I boarded the train from Madrid Atocha station at 07:00 on the 14th Oct 13. The train left on time. Breakfast was served shortly thereafter. The Breakfast contained both continental fare as well as the local spanish flavours like cheese,olives etc. The train reached Cordoba on time. Overall we had an enjoyable trip. I would definitely recommend this to my colleagues and friends.

  • "A most pleasant journey"

      Jacob t.  14/10/2013
    Booking tickets online in advance from India was a simple process, and delivery by courier was dome promptly. The stations (Madrir and Cordoba) were very well signposted and clean, and the train itswelf excellent in style an comfort. I am especially appreciative of the high level of efficiency along with courtesy and warmth with which special assistance (wheel chair) was provided to one member of my family at both stations. Thank you. I look forward to traveling with you again. T Jacob  
  • "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.

  • "relaxed travelling"

      Carelina u.  23/09/2013
    We found the trip from Granada to Madrid very convenient We travelled first class and was supposed to get a breakfast served on the journey.The attendant didnt offer us coffee or juice and when I asked for some she was very rude.Apart from that it was very comfortable and clean.  
  • "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 !
