The customer opinion was acquired via Cimenio. Cimenio incentivises its users for giving an honest opinion and proving the booking with a photo of the travel ticket.
Pros
IconSeat Comform
IconFast movement
IconFree internet connection
Both the cleanliness, the staff and the wifi equipment were of great quality. The train brought us to our destination on time and the price-performance ratio is unbeatable if booked in time. It was surprising that both the internet and the DB app announced an unusually high occupancy rate, but this did not materialise and we still had a seat without a seat reservation.
Pros
IconTravel relaxed without changing trains
IconSeats comfortable
Cons
IconTrain cancelled
Seats are comfortable. In some compartments you can even charge your mobile phone for free, the train offers free wifi. This is constantly available. I travelled from Aschaffenburg to Frankfurt and from Frankfurt to Leipzig. All the staff were also very friendly and understanding of the situation. You are notified 2 weeks in advance if there is a change to your journey. Toilets were fine. Train cancelled, still was able to choose another train to reach my destination. The price was not too expensive due to the Super Sparpreis. The only flaw: you can't cancel this ticket.
