The train journey from Vienna to Bratislava was a good value ticket for me. The staff were extremely courteous and made for a pleasant stay on the train. The stable wifi connection allowed passengers to easily stay online during the journey. However, the comfort on the trains left a lot to be desired, which detracted a little from the travelling experience. In addition, the limited availability of reservation options was somewhat disappointing and led to uncertainty when planning the journey. There were also several transfer necessities which made the journey more difficult as I was constantly changing trains. But overall it was a great trip!

My journey from Vienna to Bratislava was great. The price of the ticket was very good. The wifi connection was very efficient. I was able to make calls and work on my laptop. Hygiene was always taken care of, as the toilets were very clean and smelled nice. There was also no need to change trains, which made travelling easier. However, the staff were not very friendly and ignored my questions. Unfortunately the train did not arrive on time in Bratislava, the seats were not comfortable. But on the whole a pretty good journey.
Pros
IconQuick way to get to Bratislava
IconConvenient way to travel
IconGood price-performance ratio
Cons
IconSometimes older trains
Booking the ticket is very user-friendly and easy to do. You can book your seat reservation directly when you buy the ticket. The capacity utilisation of the trains varies greatly depending on the day. The train staff were friendly. You can arrive very comfortably without changing trains and the train was in good condition

Cons
IconNothing known
The journey from Vienna to Bratislava was flawless. The train was modern and clean, the journey fast and pleasant. The train was operated by ÖBB. It was a direct train without changing trains. The ticket price was €18.40 (2nd class, adult) and was therefore very fair. Crossing the border into Slovakia was seamless and without any further checks. The train runs several times a day (often by the hour) and the final stop is Bratislava-Petrzalka. The journey takes about an hour.

Last year I travelled with my climate ticket from Vienna to Marchegg and from there on to Bratislava. Buying the ticket was straightforward (simply in the ÖBB app) and cheap. A reservation was not necessary, but we had to stand for the whole train journey. The connection from Vienna is very good (direct train). Tickets were checked, the ticket inspector was friendly and we had no complaints. I can only recommend it to anyone who wants to take a short trip abroad. Fast, cheap and worth seeing.
Pros

IconPunctuality
Cons
IconDirty toilets
Travelling from Vienna to Bratislava on the Austrian ÖBB was not bad at all. Especially because the train was very comfortable and well soundproofed. You could even take a nap. The journey took just under 2 hours. I reach my destination on time. However, it's not without its faults, as the train was quite messy and dirty, especially in the toilets.
Pros
IconFree sockets
IconFree wifi
IconComfortable seats
Cons
IconTrain is a bit dirty.
Considering that I've only travelled abroad a few times so far, I was really pleasantly surprised at how smooth the journey was. It was very easy to book tickets online. I had seat 12 in carriage 4 and the journey took about 1 hour and 30 minutes as I travelled via Bruckneudorf, Parndorf, Gattendorf & Pama. As always, the seats were very comfortable and the sockets worked as usual. The train was a bit dirty, but it was still a very pleasant journey. The price-performance ratio was very good for a journey abroad!
Pros
IconSimple booking
Cons
IconExpensive
The only good thing about my journey from Vienna to Bratislava was that I was able to book my ticket very easily online and found a ticket that didn't require me to change trains. However, I didn't like the fact that my train was delayed and I therefore arrived at my destination later. I also didn't like the fact that the ticket was very expensive and the wifi didn't work. The toilets were very dirty.

I really enjoyed the journey from Vienna to Bratislava because I was able to book my ticket very easily online and had no problems. What I liked best was that I didn't have to change trains on my journey. However, the ticket was quite expensive. I arrived at my destination very quickly, which I also liked. The wifi worked perfectly. The toilets were very clean.
