IconBus arrived a little late
Even though the bus arrived a little late, the journey was good. There were power sockets and free wifi, which was rather mediocre. Seats could be reserved in advance and suitcases could be taken along as well as hand luggage. The bus driver was friendly and the bus was clean. There was also a toilet. The overall journey time was as stated, but because the bus arrived a little late, the arrival time was also a little later. Overall, the price-performance ratio was good.
