We had a hotel out by the airport but came in by train; our hotel had a shuttle but it was much easier to get a cab, which cost $25 including tip. This is a busy station, it is always confusing on your first trip through but gets easier with use. My Spanish is fair but there are plenty of... More

Chamartin train station seems to service locations going north of Madrid, such as Segovia, Leon, and Gijon. Easy cab ride and drop off at main station doors, and taxi pick-up is same location out the main doors. Easy to navigate as all platforms run off separate doors on the main floor where all the shops are. Not much seating area... More

Like many reviewers, we got lost between the Metro station and the Renfe station but we attributed this to being monolingual Americans who didn't understand all the signs that said "salida". The actual station was nice. We would have liked some more diversity with restaurants and slightly cleaner bathrooms but overall, we found our connections without any problems.

Okay, here is the deal. If you are staying in Madrid and looking to visit Segovia, you should use the high speed Renfe (AVE). Some helpful hints: 1. You must take the Madrid Chamartin Station to visit Segovia. We were staying in the Prado Museum area and used the Metro (subway). You take the Atocha metro to Chamartin. The price... More

We arrived for our trip to Segovia and showed our electronic tickets as we had done previously and we're rejected from the line. We needed paper tickets. We were informed of the general direction we needed to head and we raced to where these could be obtained. The office was well hidden for further torment. The office people were delightful... More

Good that I was able to step out of the hotel and across teh road to be here. I love that it has a waterfall. It kind of calms you down after a long hard day.

We took a cab to Chamartin Station our last morning in Madrid to catch an early train to San Sebastian. I'd been here before years ago. The station is very easy to use: there are 2 large boards in the center of the station displaying departures and arrivals, Underneath the boards are the ticket and information offices. There is also... More

Taking the Avant Renfe high-speed train to Segovia. Coming out of the light-train, it was not intuitive to find where we had to go for our train. Free WC (but at the other end of the station) and free wifi.

Chamartin is a large train station with reasonably good directional signs throughout. It has many shops and places to eat, which are convenient for travelers. They don't have enough seating space, however, which makes it uncomfortable for travelers. It is functional, but not worth a visit if you're not travelling.
