Pros
IconGood hygnene
IconFriendly staff
IconSimple reservation
IconOn time
Cons
IconBroken wifi
I travel very often with the Westbahn, but this time I have to say that it wasn't as good as last time because for some reason you couldn't connect to the wifi. On the other hand, the toilets were still clean, the staff were nice and it was again quick and easy to make a reservation. The train always arrives on time and had comfortable seats. The sockets at the seats work, and the volume of the announcements also, but because of the wifi only 3 out of 5 stars.

IconVery many people (loud)
I would like to evaluate my train journey from Vienna to Prague. The train was state of the art and offered good wifi and power sockets, which I was pleased with and found convenient. The seats were also extremely comfortable, which also added to my comfort. Unfortunately, the atmosphere on the train was not pleasant. It was very noisy and crowded, which made the journey uncomfortable. Nevertheless, I was overall satisfied with the comfort of the train, as I could easily block out the noise through my headphones.
Pros
IconComfortable
IconNo delay
IconBistro
Cons
IconDirty WC
The journey from Vienna to Prague went without complications and was quite relaxed. The train was in good general technical condition, although the toilets could have been a little cleaner. Otherwise, the train was clean. It was a historic train, which I found quite nice. The comfort was excellent, as the seats were soft and extremely comfortable. As far as I know, there were no delays.
Pros
IconHistoric train
IconCleanliness
IconBistro
Cons
IconNone
My journey from Vienna to Prague was a very pleasant and positive experience. The ticket was reasonably priced for this route. The journey time was also relatively manageable at just under three hours. The train itself was, let's say, historical. However, I found it quite interesting and something different. Technically, it looked good and the cleanliness left nothing to be desired. There was also a bistro on board, where I treated myself to a delicious coffee.
Pros
IconGood service
IconWell-kept train
Cons
IconNone
My journey by train from Vienna to Prague was characterised by positive impressions. Firstly, I have to say that we particularly enjoyed the picturesque scenery. The train itself was in good technical condition and was also clean and well maintained. The staff on board were always friendly and polite. They also helped me with my luggage. The train did not have any delays during the journey.
Pros
IconCleanliness
IconToilets are clean
IconMostly nice conversations
Cons
IconVery loud
IconA little too late
My train number was 1141, the train arrived on time, but a little late at the stop. Everything worked perfectly with the ticket and the cleanliness was very good. The price-performance ratio is very good because you can get anywhere with little money.
Pros
IconComfortable seats
IconGood wifi
IconTrain very clean
Cons
IconThe journey took a long time
You can easily book tickets for the journey online. I bought tickets for seat 15 in carriage 3. The staff were very nice and the journey was very pleasant, as were the seats on the train. The train was very clean inside and the toilets were very hygienic. The free wifi worked very well, as did the free power sockets. As I travelled to Praga without changing trains, it took me about six hours. The train departed on time from Vienna. The journey itself was very quiet without any disruptions, and it was also very relaxed on the train itself. As always, the price-performance ratio is excellent!
