IconOvercrowding
The train journey from Barcelona to Valencia was a remarkable journey. The extremely comfortable seats made the journey enjoyable, while the friendly conductors created a warm atmosphere. The punctuality of the train also deserves praise as it kept to its schedule, making for a reliable journey. The train was overcrowded, especially on busy sections, which resulted in cramped conditions

IconNone
A really great experience! During the journey I was able to watch the passing scenery. The train was clean and you had plenty of legroom at your seat, plus the seats were very comfortable. The facilities were also pretty good, there was working wifi and power sockets. I also didn't have to change trains, which was very pleasant. Overall, it was a very good experience and good value for money

Pro

Cons
IconSeats
Everything was actually great, but unfortunately the seats on this journey were very hard and I got quite a backache as the journey went on for quite a while. There were toilets on board, which were also very clean, as well as wifi and power sockets. As the train had large windows, I had a very good view of the passing landscape. The price-performance ratio was quite fair. I can recommend it!
Pro
IconClean
Cons
IconNo weaknesses at all
The positive features of the journey definitely include the excellent punctuality, the unique hygiene and the unrivalled comfort. The only downside in my opinion was that the wifi was unfortunately not really fast or constant. Apart from that, I can report that the staff were very nice. As a result, I would recommend the journey and give it 4 stars.
Pro

IconComfort
Cons
IconPunctuality
The train journey from Barcelona to Valencia was generally relaxed, but there were a few little things that bothered me. One was that the train wasn't quite on time, but that wasn't dramatic as it was only five minutes and that there was no wifi. The rest, however, was very good. The seats were really comfortable and I had enough space and the price was reasonable. All in all, it was a pretty good and relaxed journey.

I have nothing negative to say about the journey. So the advantages definitely include the fact that it was very hygienic and that the staff made every effort to make the journey as pleasant and trouble-free as possible. In my opinion, the price-performance ratio was definitely reasonable. As there were no negative points, I would give the train journey five stars. I can recommend it!
Pro
IconBeautiful view
IconNice reception
Cons
IconHygiene was not perfect
I travelled to Valencia on the so-called Euromed 01071. As expected, the view was simply wonderful and I was able to do my work on the train thanks to the good wifi while I enjoyed a snack in the on-board bistro. The service in the on-board bistro in particular was very nice to me. Unfortunately, the hygiene on the train and at my seat was not the best and could be improved. Otherwise I was completely satisfied, as I even got my journey for a cheap price.

I travelled from Barcelona to Valencia with my Interrail ticket. It was a very modern Spanish express train. Departure: 10:15 Arrival: 13:13. The journey took just 3 hours, which I think is remarkable. The route was very beautiful along the coast. Unfortunately, the toilet was broken and it was very hot on the train. Train number: EUR 1101

On the return journey, I was able to have a good rest before I had to get back to work. The train was a bit late, but that wasn't tragic as I was able to recover well on holiday.

IconNice conductor
Cons
IconHalf the time it was relatively loud.
We travelled a good 3 hours and arrived in Valencia on time. I liked the journey because the scenery was beautiful and the train was very clean. The only thing I would have to criticise is that it was relatively noisy on the train about half the time. I thought the seats were good and there were power sockets available. The conductor was very nice to me and the toilet was easy to use. I didn't change trains.
Pro

IconDid not exist
The journey had only positive features. The train was on time. In addition, the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. It was also very hygienic in the toilets, so there was no dirt.

    Trains from Barcelona to Valencia

    Trains from Barcelona to Valencia are as regular as clockwork, on weekdays and over weekends. Most of them are concentrated in the mornings, with a few spread out during the day and a couple towards the evening – you're looking at around 7 or 8 train trips available each day. Travel times vary from just over 5 hours to high-speed trips of around 2h40min.

    Barcelona to Valencia Train Time: Daily Departures

    A more detailed look at the timetables and schedules for Barcelona to Valencia trains will show you that you can get a train every 20 minutes or so with the first 4 trains of the morning from 8:10 a.m. to around 10:30 a.m. After that, you'll find a midday train, and then there's a bit of a hiatus until the next one around mid-afternoon. After that, there are two more: one at around 4:00 p.m. and a final trip that you can catch around 6:00 p.m. This schedule is the same every day, except for Sundays, when one fewer train runs – the early morning train trip isn't made, so the first train of the day is after 9:00 a.m.

    How long is the journey by train from Barcelona to Valencia?

    This is a direct trip no matter which train ticket you book, and the times don't vary very broadly, depending on the time of day. All Barcelona to Valencia trains take between 2h40min and just over 3 hours. The differences in train journey duration are due to some going to Valencia Joaquín Sorolla station and others to Valencia-Estacio Del Nord. The only exception is the 10:00 a.m. train, which takes a more sedate 5 hours to make the trip, at standard rather than high speed, even though it's also a direct trip.

    How to find cheap train tickets from Barcelona to Valencia?

    The cheapest tickets available on this trip are to be had on the five-hour trip. Booking in advance is the best way to ensure that you get a ticket for this specific train, so be a bit flexible on the day on which you want to travel, if you can, in case it's fully booked on any particular day. If you don't have that sort of time to spare, then avoid the early morning and the evening trains, and rather travel at midday or in the mid-afternoon. There is only one train company that runs on this line and you don't have the ability to choose between different providers, so besides choosing your train carefully, keep your eyes open for special offers on holidays. If you're a discount cardholder or hold a season membership ticket, then those fee reductions can be applied to further reduce the cost of the trip.

    What are the departure and arrival stations for trains from Barcelona to Valencia?

It's only 2 miles from the city centre, an easy 10-minute trip by public transport, and offers all the travelling amenities you could want, like Wi-Fi, disability services, restaurants, car rental outlets and tourist information services to help you on your way.

    Arrival train stations: The trains from Barcelona alternate their arrivals in Valencia between two train stations. The main Valencia-Estacio Del Nord station is a mere 2-minutes by public transport from the city centre, and Valencia Joaquín Sorolla will take you 8 minutes to reach. They're large tourist hubs, providing many amenities, like fast food outlets and coffee shops, car hire, pharmacies and mobile phone shops, as well as plenty of souvenir stands.
