I was a nice trip. The bus had an entertainment system and outlets for charging. Also WiFi
I fell asleep on the bus and the driver had to wake me and he helped me get to the next bus. I was great full.
Perhaps one stop has been good
The bus drivers (2 of the three) were extremely rude, and would not attempt to explain things to non-Spanish speaking customers.. they were impatient and even made somewhat derogatory comments about the passengers. (I’m American but understand and speak Spanish, so I had no problem). Also, it was a 9:30 pm to 7 am drive and driver Number 2 played music and news so passengers close to the front couldn’t sleep/rest
Bus was lovely and clean! Comfy seats :).. Bus was on time. Driver was very grumpy and rude.
Turned out we had to change busses to go to the airport in Madrid while the ticket clearly stated the bus would take us all the way. The staff was quite rude about it too. Not the nicest experience at 11pm..
I was expected to be dropped at the aeroport but was dropped at the train station instead. I was not given any help by the bus driver as how to get to the aeroport.
A very comfortable night bus
The seating on the bus is very cramped. I recommend eliminating 1 row of seats on each side of the bus and re-align the seats to give more leg room.
Not enough leg room. The music was on during the overnight ride and it was impossible to sleep. The internet was quite slow
I was unfortunate to have a window seat (09) that was unable to recline. The consequences where,my seat remained upright whilst the passenger in front when was in a fully reclined position caused m total discomfort. I believe that Alsa have chosen max seating capacity and not passenger comfort,also exacerbated by faulty seating mechanism.
The bus ride was fantastic! The bus had free WiFi and a full entertainment system with videos and music. The driver was kind and helpful. Would ride Alsa again if ever I am back in Spain.
Good trip apart from 1 toilet break and no refreshememts available or time given to buy any in 7 hours !
Comfortable bus journey, although we should be advised that a change of bus is required in Madrid to reach the airport.
On time. Corteust. Helpful
Hi I didn’t realise there would be no stops for food or toilet break, also didn’t even know we arrived in Madrid with no English speaking on the bus. It would be nice to have an announcement in multiple languages and a flyer so we understand there are no stops for 5 + hours . But the bus was amazing and the time good 👍
The connection to the airport was a little confusing.
On a 9 hr bus trip i would have expected a better bus. The seats were cramped & I couldn't stretch my legs. The air vent wouldn't stay in place so i could get fresh air. No food or water supplied at all but other buses do, not sure why not.
Mycket hög komfort på bussen.
There was no stop break for the whole 8hour journey
Please make it clear which compartment to put our luggage in. The first driver did not tell us and we were not able to get off at our stop because our luggage was in the wrong place. The driver was very rude to us when I told him that no one informed us that there was a specific place for luggage, and that we needed our luggage from the other side. Don’t treat passengers like they are stupid if you did not give them the proper information. Also, you should explain where the bus is stopping. I am a foreigner, so i didn’t know which stop in Madrid I should get off at. All I know Is that I am Going to Madrid, and then I have 2 stops to choose from and I dont Know what to do and nobody will explain it to me
Luggage was stored by driver in incorrect area of bus resulting in failure to make destination. Instead we had to ride to next stop 30-45 minutes longer to access luggage at the wrong depot. Ticket clearly stated Moncloa and was presented to driver. Luggage offloaded at Sud.
Good service, comfortable modern equipment, good value
NeXT time for sure i get Your bus again ,iT is reliable
A lot of stops and had to change bus in Madrid to get to the Airport. Bus was comfortable, reasonable Wifi, good value.
Bus, seats and staff we great. Was disappointed that there was not one stop where we could have a quick break, a coffee and get something to eat. For those of us that had been up since 5.00am to catchbto bus from Santiago to Madrid it was a ridiculously long time without a break or refreshment.
Went smoothly. First bus driver was grumpy !
Thanks for excellent service
