Hard to understand the driver's announcements. Seats were very crampy. Only one stop to go to los accesos.
There is hardly anyone speaks English, if we ask anything they respond in Spanish which is making everything impossible. Who is working with foreigners should speak English
Very good trip
Always pleased with the service from ALSA no hassle easy and relaxing
The first could have been a little friendlier. The service had a very intense stench from the start. Summarizing, the trip was long but pleasant despite the drivers awful taste in music (local radio stations).
Would be Nice if the driver could just a little English
Очень удобно и быстро
Overall great experience. After reading not great reviews we were concerned about our 10 hour trip, but delighted by the experience. Friendly and helpful driver in Santiago, on time departure, efficient and skilful drivers, arrived 20 minutes early in Madrid. The wifi was not great and kept dropping out, but this may have been due to the traveling through countryside. Highly recommended.
A driver was very nice and helpful. Answered all questions . He was a best!
Prompt service with no faults carried out efficiently.
Excellent drivers and good coaches.
Good service, uncomfortable seats, rude driver
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 👍
