Pros
IconWith long stops
IconVery comfortable seats
IconWork possible thanks to sockets and wifi
Cons
IconExpensive price
Timetable: TGV 9715 departed at 14:54 and arrived at 21:30. You didn't have to change trains for the whole journey, it went directly to Barcelona. You don't need to make a reservation, as this is automatically booked on such journeys. The comfort was very good, the seats and the table were all clean, as were the toilet and the floor. The noise level was a bit loud as many passengers were children, which didn't bother me. The price was the only thing I could really fault about the journey. There was wifi and power sockets to work from. The journey took around 6 hours and 50 minutes.
Pros
IconGood hygiene
IconGood price
Cons
IconService was okay
I travelled to Barcelona on the INT 09742. In my opinion, it was a very exciting journey from one country to another in Europe. For me as an experienced train traveller, it was a new adventure that I had never experienced before. The hygiene of the train was very good and the train's wifi also worked quite well. The service was available, but tended to take place in the on-board bistro. The price was also very good
Pros
IconGood wifi
Cons
IconLoud guests
Train number 7827 departed from Paris to Barcelona on 9 April at 20:09. The journey took 16 hours. The comfort of the journey included comfortable seats, wifi and power sockets. Which was very important for the journey, simply because of the enormous length of the journey. The staff were very nice and helpful, they helped me board the train. Despite the long journey, the toilets were always clean and hygienic like the rest of the train.
Pros
IconQuiet ride
Cons
IconLittle space for luggage
The train with the train number TGV 9715 departed from Paris to Barcelona with a delay. The connection is possible without changing trains. The service offered on the train is really super good and, to be honest, it amazed me. The journey took about 6 hours, which was very manageable with the very comfortable seats. The hygiene on the train was also very good.
Pros

The train from Paris Gare de Lyon to Barcelona Sants with the train number TGV 9715 departed on time at 14:42 on 10 October. The table on the train is very good, as the large table allows you to work in a relaxed manner. The hygiene on the train was really great. On a 7-hour journey, comfortable seats are important, which are also available.
