    Lovely station. Direct train to airport available. Free if you have a Renfe ticket. Just ask readily available officer at the machine how to get one.

    Beautiful, efficient train station 👍🏼 Buy tickets in advance if possible, the lines can be long.. You will pass security for instance, think "airport" when calculating the time needed!

    Lovely shops, restaurants and bars. Watch the TV monitors to find out what track your AVE train comes in, it is not on your ticket.

    Big train station. Metro closed till Nov 2016. Use the "cercanias" service. Slow but useful

    Trains in Spain arrive and leave on scheduled time. Departure trains close the access 2 min before scheduled time. Don't be a lazy ass like me and arrive at least 30 minutes early, no refunds if late.

    Station among others for the fast train: Renfe Ave (arrival is brilliantly located separately from the departure). With good sign it's easy to navigate.

    Hard to find your way to your platform if you do not know Spanish. Not everyone speaks english in renfe customer service.

    Too crazy for my taste. Two different floors, poor food offer (6.5€ for a Spanish omelette sandwich) and a bunch of people swarming around all lost. But the turtles are very cute.

    Very big and nice station. If you want to go to Barcelona or Sevilla just take the AVE and in 2-3h you are at your village/ city/ town.

    A bit confusing how to get to the right railway section and the roof in the main area is leaking so watch out that it doesn't drip on your head!

    Get the city map, metro map from the information center. Taxis are plenty but be careful. The taxi driver I got was not honest. Short changed me and when asked for the difference, just drove off.

    Nice architecture. But the reservation process was sooo slow. We waited about an hour and half to get our ticket to Barcelona.
