Travelled from Barcelona to Madrid. Even though the website was in Spanish, Google translate translated the entire page to English for us, which made things a lot easier. Seats were comfy, food was great and free flow of drinks (including cava) for business class section....More

Fast, efficient, clean, economical. Left wishing our US trains could be like this. There is no better way to travel in Spain.

Hi You wrote a great review - Is there any chance you could share you itinerary and comment on it? We are going on a similar route in Sept and I think it would be great value if you would do so. Thanks either way! You wrote: Good trains We booked online prior to our Andalucía trip that included many cities including Seville, Malaga,Ronda,Granada and Granada in early April. The Medium Distance trains are sleek looking, clean and relatively quiet. The Seville to Malaga train departed Estacion San Justa, a clean modern station right on time. It made many stops along the way. Then half way to Malaga the conductor announced in Spanish (he held up iPad with English translation) that due to technical issue we had to switch trains in Osana. Turned out as soon we exited they used the same train to take another group of passengers back to Seville while we scrambled with our luggage crossing the track to the south bound platform and board another train. That was puzzling. The Malaga Maria Zambrano station was even more impressive. We took s day trip train to Ronda. Apparently only 1 daily round trip. 1000-1600. We finished our sightseeing in much less time but ended sitting the Ronda station cafeteria. We will try renfe again in the future
