Apart from the slight delay I had to accept, my journey from Frankfurt to Paris was very pleasant. Thanks to the seat reservation, there was plenty of room for me and my two suitcases even in the hustle and bustle. In addition, the train staff were extremely friendly and the wifi was fast.

Pros
IconQuiet rides
IconFast arrival
IconSeats are always clean
Cons
IconSometimes it is a bit dirty
IconThe train is often late
IconBut it also often comes too early
The facilities were very good, I had very stable wifi and I had four power sockets. It was very comfortable, the seats were soft and clean as always. The volume was good, no one was shouting around and I could read my books in peace. The service was very friendly, the reservation options were great, I had many options and lots of information about them. It was clean and I didn't have to travel long as the train was very fast as usual. I didn't have to change trains either, and the train was unfortunately a bit late. The price-performance ratio was actually very good on the whole
Pros
IconVery fast
IconComfortable
IconBeautiful
Cons
IconToo full sometimes
IconA little loud sometimes
IconSometimes late
The facilities were great, you have wifi and a power socket. It was very comfortable, the seats were comfy, the sound was good, the food was good. The service was also good, friendly, you could make reservations and you had information. It was very clean. Was on time, didn't have to change trains. Price-performance ratio was good
Pros
IconPunctuality
Cons
IconTime of departure
The trip to Paris was very pleasant for the price, but it should be noted on the negative side that the wifi unfortunately only worked very rarely and then only fragile, I would have liked a more stable network here. The hygiene was okay, even if the toilets could have been cleaner. In total, we were on the road for about 4 1/3 hours, which in my opinion is really very good for the route.
Pros
IconFastest train
Cons
IconRelatively high price
The price I paid for the ticket was almost double the price of a normal German ICE train, but it was by far the best journey. Nice staff who spoke English and German. A clean train and arrived in Paris relatively quickly at almost 300kmh. It definitely justifies the price and as I travelled on it on holiday, I'm happy to pay the price. I was really happy!
Pros
IconSimple booking
Cons
IconVery expensive
I liked the journey because I arrived at my destination very quickly without having to change trains. I also liked the wifi and the toilets were clean. I also thought it was great that I could simply book the ticket online. However, I found the price too expensive for a train ticket.
Pros
IconNice staff
IconPunctual
The journey took just under 4 hours. The conductor was friendly to me. We arrived at our destination station Paris Est on time. I found my seat good and comfortable. There was wifi on board and it worked okay. The toilet was clean and easy to use. I was able to travel on my train and didn't have to change trains. It was relatively quiet in my compartment, which made for a relaxed train journey.
Pros
IconRelaxed train journey
IconQuiet on the train
IconClean
Cons
IconToilet dirty
The train journey was relatively relaxed and took about 4 hours. The train staff were friendly and there was a power socket by my seat. It was also nice and quiet around me. The train itself was well cleaned and it didn't stink, which wasn't the case with the toilet. It was quite dirty and smelly, but another one was fine to use. I didn't have to change trains and am very happy with the train journey.
Pros
IconShort journey duration
IconPunctual
Cons
IconDirty floors and seats
The train journey from Frankfurt to Paris was okay, but not outstanding. The train was not particularly well maintained and the floors and especially the seats were quite dirty. There were also a lot of travellers on board, so there were hardly any seats. I can't say much about the service, the staff were hardly ever around. On the plus side, there were no delays. The ticket was also reasonably priced. The journey time was also good at just under 3 hours.
Pros
IconBeautiful view
Cons
IconPricewise okay
I travelled a good 4-4.5 hours to Paris. The journey was very pleasant and the train service was also very nice to me. I travelled on the TGV9560, which I have taken to France several times before. The train was very decent. I would have liked to have paid a little less, but it wasn't too bad. The train's wifi was also great and I did my work on my laptop during the journey.
Pros
IconPunctuality
Cons
IconCleanliness
The only negative aspect of the journey was that the toilets and benches were unfortunately not really clean. The positive aspects, however, were the quick reception, the helpful staff and the quiet atmosphere on the train. I was able to book the ticket online in advance without any problems. The price was definitely reasonable. The train was punctual to the minute. I give it 5 stars
Pros
IconClean
Cons
IconAccording to
I really enjoyed the journey on the ICE 9556. The journey only took four hours, which I thought was great. It meant I could concentrate on my work, even if it was a bit noisy, but you have to expect that with a four-hour journey. It was nice and clean.
Pros
IconShort journey duration
IconGood service
IconClean train
Cons
IconNone
The journey from Frankfurt to Paris was part of a business trip and went absolutely smoothly. The modern train was in excellent condition, both visually and technically. In addition, it was clean and tidy, which contributed to the general feeling of well-being. There were no delays, to my knowledge. The service on board was good, as the staff were always friendly and helpful. The journey time was manageable.
Pros
IconSmooth ride
IconReservation worked perfectly
IconThere was wifi
Cons
IconNo long stops en route if you want to buy something
IconToilets were a bit disgusting
The journey went like this: I boarded at 06:56 sharp, just as the ICE 9586 was leaving, and sat down in my reserved seat. The comfort was really great and the volume was reasonable. Thanks to the wifi, I was able to get my work done, but unfortunately I had the wrong plug for charging. I recommend checking online to see which sockets are available. The staff were also very friendly. The toilet on the other hand was a bit disgusting as there was toilet paper on the floor, but it wasn't too bad. The journey took around 4 hours with no delays.
