Very confusing, mass of buses and no information until minutes before departure, by then it was already 15 mins past stated departure time.
It appears I had a seat reservation but couldn't be sure what it was - my poor Spanish didn't help.
The trip was great and all the staff were very nice and helpful!
However when i booked it said the bus had wifi and I would receive a snack. I was not given a wifi password and there were no snacks included.
Otherwise it was a nice trip!
Retiro bus station is a tired place. The ticket says águila will be between platforms 55 and 66. At five minutes before departure time a bus arrives between this platforms. Is it ours? Who knows. No destination on the front of the bus . Wander up. Yes. The miserable git looking at tickets agrees that we have one that matches.
It wasn’t a great experience. Bus arrived on time. Toilet blocked
