Pros
IconTicket very cheap
IconSecondary seat can be booked cheaply
Cons
IconThe train was late
The train was about 20 minutes late at departure and this also pushed the arrival back a bit. Otherwise, the journey is good because the price is cheap compared to other train journeys. I always book the extra seat and then have a bit more space, as the seats are quite narrow. The train is older, which is noticeable, but everything is clean. There doesn't seem to be a properly functioning ventilation system and that could be uncomfortable on hot days, but everything was fine on my journey. Otherwise everything is perfectly fine, for the price I don't find much to complain about. Gladly again.
Pros

Cons
IconTicket inspector
My journey from Hanover to Frankfurt was quite satisfactory overall. There were some positive and negative aspects that I would like to share. The toilets on the train were clean and well maintained, which is important for me. Clean toilets definitely add to the comfort of a train journey. The seats on the train were comfortable and offered enough space. This made the journey pleasant, especially on the longer stretch to Frankfurt. The price for the train ride seemed reasonable, especially considering the cleanliness and comfort of the train. Unfortunately, the ticket inspector I encountered during the journey was quite rude. He didn't seem to be in the best mood and could definitely be friendlier. This marred the overall impression somewhat. On the positive side, the train arrived in Frankfurt on time, which was very important for me. The punctuality helped everything run smoothly. Overall, the journey went without any major problems, apart from the rude encounter with the ticket inspector.
Pros
IconCleanliness
IconInternet
Cons
IconDelay
My train journey from Hanover to Frankfurt was positive all round. The best part was undoubtedly the cleanliness and the strong internet connection on the train. The cleanliness made for a pleasant travel experience and the reliable internet allowed me to be productive and stay in touch with loved ones. One small downer was that the train arrived a few minutes later than expected. Although this slightly affected my plans, it was still acceptable and not serious. The positive aspects of the journey far outweighed this small loss of time. Overall, my train journey from Hanover to Frankfurt was extremely pleasant. The cleanliness, strong internet connection and overall relaxed atmosphere make this train connection a recommendable option for travellers, even if the train was slightly delayed.
Pros
IconClean train and toilet
IconPunctual train
Cons
IconNothing
I enjoyed the train ride very much from the beginning to the end. As soon as I entered the train, I noticed how clean everything was and the toilet was just as clean. When I sat down, I immediately noticed how comfortable the seats were and felt very comfortable. There were also plenty of sockets for charging my electronic devices. The staff were very friendly and always available to answer questions. The train was very punctual and arrived at the right time. There was also good wifi.
Pros
IconConvenient
IconRide is fast
Cons
Icon2 hours late
IconDespite the delay, the time was not made up but even slower
IconCould go faster for an ICE
Unfortunately, the ICE was delayed again, the reason was: late provision of the ICE, which means for me that the technicians did not get their work done and the train was provided too late. An absurdity especially on this route, many people go to Frankfurt to fly, so everyone would miss their flight. Then you look at the speed and no faster than 140 for an ICE really slow despite the delay. Too bad, once again it's proven that DB can't do it.

My train ticket from Hanover to Frankfurt am Main really surprised me in a positive way! The journey time flew by, the train arrived right on time and the comfort was great. I was also impressed by the cleanliness of the train, everything was neat and tidy. But, and here comes the "but", the wifi facilities left a lot to be desired, that was the only downside. If you value a fast and comfortable journey and can do without the wifi, this train ticket is definitely recommended. I had a pleasant journey and would book it again.

The journey from Hanover to Frankfurt am Main via Cologne went very well, apart from a minor delay when changing trains in Cologne. I was really impressed by the equipment of the trains in both ICEs, in addition to the upholstered, adjustable seats with plenty of legroom and sufficient storage space for luggage, the free wifi and the good organisation of the ICEs into: Quiet carriage, family carriage and dining carriage.
