The train from Granada to Seville was sold out on Christmas Eve so we decided to try Bus.
It was clean, efficient, and a nice bus experience.
Small space for a wide shouldered 200 lb man, but overall good experience.
There is no bathroom on the bus and it is over 3 hours, so make sure to prepare beforehand and not drink on the bus
WiFi on the bus was not great.
There should be a stop at the airport given the City traffic, the bus route was going close by anyway.
As a person who is 183 tall, it was hard to relax my neck during the ride.
I found it all ok. The facilities were good. The wifi was good, as was the entertainment. My only issue was the driver. He pulled over early into the journey and told a passenger to stop eating and that no one was allowed to eat on the coach. Now I don't know about ALSA but every other coach I have taken around the world has never enforced a rule such as this. Adding to the fact that this journey was between 12pm and 3pm, it left a lot of us feeling very hungry and delaying any lunch we planned to have on our journey.
Our trip from Granada to Seville was very easy to book online, we turned up 10 mins before and there was already an orderly queue but the bus left and arrived on time. The bus is much faster than the train and good value. The only improvement would have been
Rude staff and no one to help indicate which of the difference buses leaving at the same time to the same destination was ours. Also no staff to help put the luggage on the given compartiment of the bus, resulting in people throwing their stuff everywhere
We booked our specific seats months in advice for the sole purpose of sleeping during our 3am bus ride. When we boarded, someone was asleep in one of our seats. We notified the bus driver. He did not even slightly attempt to wake them or ask them to move. He instructed us to sit in the front two seats of the bus while he played loud music the entire ride. We did not sleep and never sat in the seats we paid for months in advance. If we’d known our booked seat number did not matter, we would have used a different company.
We are a family of four from Australia and we found the bus was an excellent way to see the countryside from Granada to Sevilla. The seats were very comfortable, there was enough space and wireless access was appreciated.
We found the bus station times and gate board confusing and we almost got on the wrong bus, which also said Sevilla. However we were directed, fortunately, to the right bus, which was in the next gate. The ride was smooth and uneventful.
We reached the bus station in Granada on time and checked with a staff who directed us to information center as he couldn't respond in English. We were told to go to platform 14/15. However, when we reached there, we found some other buses these platforms. Or bus to Seville was on the adjacent platform. We placed the in the hold area and then headed to our seats. Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg room. Bus started on time and the journey was fine. We reached some 10 minutes before scheduled time. What I didn't like was that there were no charger outlets. That would have been nice. On the whole the trip was fine.
