My journey from Prague to Vienna turned out to be a good one. The staff were very friendly, polite, respectful and they always responded to my concerns and interests. The train also arrived in Vienna on time. Hygiene was taken into consideration, as the toilets were very clean and well maintained. However, there were several changes that made the journey more difficult. Personally, I found the price to be a little on the expensive side. Also, the seats were not comfortable and well maintained. Overall though, a good journey.

My journey from Prague to Vienna was pretty good. Firstly, the courteous staff should be emphasised, as they were very nice and friendly and treated their guests very well. The train also arrived in Vienna on time. Attention was always paid to hygiene, as the toilets were clean and well maintained. The seats were also very comfortable and cosy. However, the volume was not adequate and the wifi connection was not efficient and was rather slow. Also, the price was a bit expensive. But overall a pretty good trip.

Cons
IconThe arrival was a little late
It was very easy to book the tickets from Prague to Vienna online. I booked seat 18 in carriage 3. As always, the journey was very smooth and the staff were very nice and chatty. The train was relatively clean inside, but the toilets are not very hygienic. The train left Prague on time and I didn't have to change trains to Prague once. The journey took a little longer on average (as I travelled via the city of Brno) at around six hours. It was quiet inside the train. The free power sockets and free wifi worked very well. As always, the price-performance ratio is very good!
