I've heard of taking the AVE train, but wouldn't I have to somehow get from the MAD airport to the train station?

I am looking for a fast but safe route (I'm not sure how safe the public/city buses are but I am going to have all my travel bags and will look like a huge, foreign target). If possible, I'd like to save money. My flight lands at 1, and I have about 4.5 hours to get from Madrid to Seville, and I have to be in a place called the "Hotel Alcazar" which is about a 10-minute walk from the Seville Cathedral.

Can someone give me the least stressful way to get there? I was thinking maybe just taxi to the AVE, then get off in Sevilla and walk but if there's another great train that's fast that I don't know about please suggest!

  • Take a look at Rome2Rio for options. As @pnuts suggests, flying may be the best, least stressful option.

    why the 4.5 hours time restriction to get to Sevilla ?

There's the C1 train that goes from Barajas' Terminal 4 to Atocha.

I don't know if this is still vald, but if you already have your AVE train ticket, then you get a free pass on the C1:


This would be the simplest and cheaper way to do it.

From Atocha, take the AVE to Sevilla.

The AVE seems around $66 and 2-1/2 hours. Flights seem to start at around $43 and 1 hour, though timings might not suit.
