Pros
IconHardly any delay
Cons
IconExpensive
IconPoor wifi
The train was quite full and there were problems with the seat reservation display, which led to a lot of confusion. I had a power socket available, which was great. I was able to charge either my mobile phone or my headphones. Which is necessary on such a long journey. The seats were fine, I sat on a 2-seater and so had a footrest, which was nice. However, this is not available in the four-seater seats. I sat in the quiet area as the other compartments were full. As I wasn't alone, it was a bit annoying as you couldn't have a conversation. However, it was very quiet and calm. We were a little late, but this was still within reason. I didn't use the toilets, so I can't say anything about the cleanliness here. The ticket inspectors and train drivers made a very pleasant impression and were friendly. Overall, I think the price was a bit expensive for the fact that the journey was so long and the wifi didn't work so well.
