Pros
IconPleasant journey
IconFriendly staff
IconClean on board
Cons
IconMinimum delay
I recently travelled from Kiel to Berlin by train and had an overall pleasant experience. The train was clean and comfortable and I had enough space for my legs. The staff on board were quite friendly and took good care of you. The journey time was also quite short and there were enough stops and convenient to get on and off the train. One drawback, however, was that the train was sometimes a bit late. Overall, though, it was a good option for a quick and comfortable as well as carbon neutral journey.
Pros
IconClean toilets
IconGood wifi
IconPunctuality
This was a first class journey and I didn't notice anything negative, so I am more than happy to recommend this journey. My train arrived on time and I was greeted nicely by the staff. Then I sat down and I immediately noticed how comfortable the seats were. The wifi was also very good. Then I went to the toilet and I noticed how very hygienic and clean the toilets were. The volume on the train was also very pleasant. For a first class journey, the price was very good. I also had a power socket at my seat, which I could use to charge my mobile phone.

This Deutsche Bahn train connection from Kiel to Berlin is very good and punctual. The comfort of the journey was also very good and cosy. I was able to switch off during the journey for the first time in a long time. The train journey was quiet and not jerky. I also like the fact that the train was full and I was able to move around freely on the train. The staff in the bistro were also very friendly. The online booking was also very easy and quick

Already I can only say that I am passing on this trip and it deserves five stars because I liked everything. When I waited for my train, it arrived very quickly and I was greeted nicely. Then I tested the wifi and it was really great. I liked the food and it was very fresh. I was surrounded by nice staff. This was a great ride and the atmosphere was also great.

IconSeats soiled
The return journey from Kiel to Berlin was not as good as the outward journey from Berlin to Kiel. My seat had a brown stain (could have been a coffee stain) I pointed this out to the staff and asked if I could get another seat and the staff woman said I should pay for it. I was then standing for the whole journey, but no big deal, the train was on time, the food was good and the toilets were clean. I had to change trains again in Hamburg, which was no problem. The price was reasonable for a return journey.
Pros

IconPunctuality
That was my return journey and it was really great, as my train also arrived on time. I would like to give special praise to the service, as my food came very quickly, was fresh and very tasty. The wifi was very good and I could charge my mobile phone thanks to a socket. The whole train and especially the toilet were very clean. The atmosphere was great and so was the view from the train. This trip deserves 5 stars and also a recommendation.

The punctual arrival of the ICE was very commendable. The reservation went smoothly and the staff were very friendly at the ticket desk and also on the train. Unfortunately, the wifi on the train is very poor and there are clearly too few power sockets at the seats if you have to work with a laptop and mobile phone like me.

On the journey from Wifi to Berlin, the facilities were not so good, there was no wifi, but there were plenty of sockets. In addition, the comfort was not quite right, as the seats were broken and it was very noisy. The service was super nice staff and a good restaurant on board. The cleanliness was not good at all, unclean toilets. The journey time was quite good, no change of trains but the train was delayed but not for long. The price was fine.
