Pro
IconFriendly staff
IconOn time
Contra
IconA little dirty
Due to the many people who had logged into the WiFi, the network was overloaded, which was of no use to me. The power outlet worked. Seats were ok, table and floor a bit dirty. The staff were very friendly and helpful and often gave out information for trains and the like. About the toilets were intact but slightly smelly. The train was on time. Price was ok for short term booking but in my eyes it could cost 20-30% less.
Pro
Icontasty food
I immediately noticed that the train was very nicely decorated. You had a lot of space. The food was particularly tasty and came from different kitchens. There was also a lot of attention paid to hygiene, for example with disinfectant. The staff were very friendly. The wifi was great and my ticket was cheap for what I got. My train was also on time. Great journey, I'd be happy to pass it on. What's more, the journey was in 2nd class.
Pro
IconSuper fast
IconVery clean
Contra
IconVery expensive
The train was on time and it took us just under 4 hours, which is very remarkable. The facilities were as expected. There was wifi, an on-board bistro and electricity. The hygiene was good. The price-performance ratio was reasonable, even if the tickets were quite expensive.
