When it's busy it's the ninth circle of hell. Beautiful grove of trees in centre of station. Cafe de la estacion is excellent for coffee and croissants
A good place to informal meeting located at the heart of Madrid. Very well communicate with city transport system. Metro, Trains, High Speed Lines, local buses and taxi stop. Special bus service to Adolfo Suárez Airport. And directly connected to Méndez Álvaro bus station by train and 102 bus service where you can take buses to almost all Spanish and Europeans cities. A large selection of cafeterias and restaurants. Shopping stores with articles you might need to keep on your travel.
