Just a shame there was no wifi
I loved everything in the train. one comment i have is that when i tried to get something to eat from the cafeteria the guy who was working in there was not speaking english, so i had a hard time trying to order.
Mainly i travelled alone and my neightbour was a young women with a baby. During the whole way (3 ways) the baby distirbed me and I cannot sleep. I think that the client should have a possibility with whom to sit. I suppose that 2 women with babies would feel more comfortable together and would not distirb to anyone. Therefore to provide better service the system should have an access to choose the right place for each client.
Very nice trains, punctual, fast and clean. Not much to complain about. Although it was a surprise for us that we had to go to a security check as in the airports. Luckily we arrived early, but it could have been informed on the ticket that we should incorporate 20 minutes to security check point. In most European trainstations, security checkpoints is not common, so it must come as a surprise to many travellers not familiar with RENFE stations.
We took the train from Malaga to Madrid and from Madrid to Toledo. The journey by train is awesome and we rather do that than fly. We have traveled a lot over the years and its the best way as far as well are concerned. Clean, good scenery, and very spacious. Any awesome experience. Hope to do this again next summer in Italy, France.
I enjoyed the services in the train very much, they are clean, tidy and very comfortable, very ideal for a single traveler before I joined my friend in Malaga. I booked my ticket in the internet from Madrid Atocha to Malaga stations. However, I did not have any information regarding the connecting train from airport to Atocha. They are not available in the website I used in booking my ticket. Upon arrival, I learnt that there are more trains with less stops and shorter time. When I arrived, I tried to use Metro and paid 5 euros. Before entered to the gate, I saw the entrance of Renfe station, the customer services guided me for a free connection ticket. In fact, on my way return, I found the Renfe Line, C-1 is more convenient and cheaper than Metro line. I paid only 2.5 euros for one way to Sol and Principle Cio stations which are great for tourists. The other point I would like to raise is the time of train. As I have no idea for the travelling mode and time between the two stations that I booked, so I allowed plenty of time upon my arrival and departure from Madrid Airport. After I resolved the connecting train problem, I arrived early than my reserved train and i asked for taking an earlier train if there was available seat. However, the customer services told me that no change of train within the date is allowed even if there is available seat in an earlier train. So I struck in the station for two hours.
From booking the tickets via rail europe world to watching the world go by on the train the whole process was straight forward and pleasurable!
The train it self was fine and comfortable enough. But it was an expensive trip that we only made due to there being no other viable option. We had distinct problems with the tickets and were only able to obtain e tickets which had to be emailed, which was not pratical as we infrequently had access to a computer. I even called them to see if we could have them printed at the station but no we had to wait and find a computer. However once we had the tickets everything ran soomthly.
Simply the best way to travel from Madrid to Malaga.
This train travelling in "preferente" was well worth the cost. The comfort, speed and attention of the staff was excellent.
Very fast, quiet, on time and luxurious! We would not have been aware that at times we were travelling at 300 km h had it not been for the informative display. This certainly is the best way to get to Madrid, to fly would take longer because of the extra time checking in and then having to get to and from the airports. Would certainly go this way again!
The AVE train was a wonderful experience - so fast but comfortable, we were only aware of the speed by the display, as you look out of the windows it really did not look like we were going at 300 km h! Would certainly do this again!
Comfortable, fast and good service. Time flashed by.
on time ,very comfortable
Everything abut this trip was first rate and we would thoroughly recommend RailEurope to any prospective customers.
