I always feel sorry when I take a train from this station! It's just too out-dated. True that it's historically old, but it needs a lot of work at so many levels.

The old station is beautiful and worth visiting even if you are not catching a train from Oran. Well kept, clean, original features intact, just like in the old postcards.

Apparently the French built this pearl of a station. It's rather small, but the exterior and interior are definitely worth a look.

Used it on my trips to Algiers, very-well preserved old building dating back from French occupation times. People always on the move, taxi drivers slightly agressive to "catch" a customer, train workers kind and helpful. Even if you are not taking the train try to...More

It's worth getting some exercise and walking out to the train station to soak in the slow decay of Oran's colonial heritage. The station building is quite attractive and in relatively good condition. No-one objected to me walking around inside and clicking some pics.
