Pros
Iconclean toilets
Cons
Iconlong ride
Unfortunately, my journey was delayed due to a technical defect, but it was fixed relatively quickly. The wifi was OK, could be better, but sockets worked and the seats were comfortable. The toilets were kept very clean and I found the price-performance ratio OK, but not necessarily the best.
Pros
Iconcool atmosphere
Icongreat view
Cons
Icontechnical problems
This was a trip in October, so it was cold, but the heaters worked great. It gets 4 out of 5 stars because there was a small technical problem and the wifi didn't work for a few minutes, but that wasn't too bad. I can recommend this trip and now we come to the reasons why I can recommend this trip: the toilets were very clean, the staff were humorous. It was very quiet on the train, the people were very empathetic and I had power sockets at my table. Then I had a table to eat at and the service was great. My ticket was cheap. These are all reasons why I can pass this on. Pleasant ride! Also, the view was great!
Pros
IconInformation
Cons
IconDelay
First of all, I would like to mention the negative side. It's about the fact that the train was late. In my opinion, this is a reason for the rating to be deducted 1 star. So now we come to the positive side. There were clearly more positive things. There were many good things, but the first thing I would like to mention is that I think it's great that we were always given information, for example when we would arrive, how fast the train was going and so on. Then I would like to mention the service, which worked great, because it was fast and cheap. Finally, I would like to say that the toilets were really hygienic and cheap. In general, I give it 4 out of 5 stars and can pass on the trip with love.
Pros
IconVery many ordering options.
Cons
IconThe delay of the train.
It was a cool ride as it didn't take too long, but unfortunately the train was delayed by 20 minutes. I travelled alone, but I didn't feel lonely at all because the staff were really there for me. The service was great because you had a lot of options to order, e.g. hot noodles. I also felt comfortable when I used the toilets. It was very hygienic. I can definitely recommend it as the price was OK.
Pros
Iconpunctual
Iconconvenient
Cons
IconVery expensive for the short distance
We took the ICE from Stuttgart to Frankfurt. We used the Young Sparpreis for this. The train arrived on time and was not overloaded. We didn't have a seat reservation, but we got a seat anyway. There was also room for our bags. We were able to charge our mobile phones at the sockets and connect to the wifi without any problems. The short journey was very pleasant, but in my opinion far too expensive!
Pros
Iconcomfortable seat
Cons
IconHeaters are out
It was a relatively good ride, but unfortunately the heaters failed. There were very friendly staff and the wifi was great. I can recommend it. The price was OK. There was a lot of attention paid to hygiene. The toilets were also very clean, I felt comfortable when I used them. It was very quiet on the train.
Pros
IconSympathetic staff, punctuality of the train
Cons
IconThe toilets were not clean
IconMy food was delivered cold
I had wifi on the train and several power sockets at my seat. My seat was comfortable and it was quiet on the train. Then I want to mention the sympathy of the staff, they were really so nice. When I boarded, I was not in such a good mood, but when the staff smiled at me, I had my mood back. Still, three stars out of five because the toilets weren't clean and my food was delivered cold. I can still pass it on to anyone because it was really cheap. Also, I was in second class and went at 7pm in the evening.
Pros
IconThe wifi was excellent, I had several power connections.
The wifi connection was excellent. It was a relatively relaxed train journey, with my seats also being very comfortable. I was travelling alone, but the nice catering from the staff meant I didn't feel alone. The toilets were very clean and there was a fresh smell of detergent. Visitor came only 1 minute late, but that is not so bad. I can recommend it as it was relatively cheap. In general, a great ride. There is also a lot of attention paid to hygiene and it was very quiet on the train.
Pros
IconPunctuality of the train, friendly staff
Cons
IconThe food was cold, the toilets were not clean
I had access to wifi on the train and had several power sockets at my seat. My seat was relatively comfortable. It was very quiet on the train. The staff were very friendly. However, three stars because my food was brought cold and the toilets were not clean. I can recommend it because it was very reasonably priced. If you needed food, you got it. What I also liked was that the staff smiled at me when I got in.
Pros
IconPrice-performance ratio
Cons
IconTrain was late, technical fault, change of train, no wifi,
This train journey was by far the worst train journey of my life. The train was 3 hours late. I had no wifi on the train and due to a technical fault, I had to wait 3 hours longer on the train. I didn't like the food and the toilets were dirty. Unfortunately, I can't recommend it because it really wasn't good, but the price-performance ratio is good.
Pros
IconGood wifi
IconNice staff
IconComfort
The train journey went really well. The train staff were helpful and totally friendly. The wifi worked perfectly, so I was able to wifi throughout the journey. The train was clean and very comfortable, which made the journey very pleasant. The food on board was very tasty and arrived shortly after I ordered it. Overall, this journey was an all-round positive experience and therefore deserves 5 stars. I am happy to recommend this trip to others.
Pros
IconPrice
Cons
IconOvercrowding
Very pleasant trip, even if we unfortunately had to start it slightly late. It was also a shame that it was so full. Understandable given the price, but still a shame for the travellers. The wifi was only partially working, but still often enough to load enough of the film. The toilet was not good, but it was okay. We were about 30 minutes late. The comfort was excellent.
