It had been quite relaxing on the ICE. The staff checked tickets in a friendly manner and greeted people in the corridors. The on-board bistro was open and the staff were also friendly and prepared food quickly. In my compartment, however, many of the available sockets did not work. The internet, on the other hand, worked perfectly. The train was very clean, as were the toilets. The train itself was very quiet. The train was about 10 minutes late at its destination.

The wifi worked well on the train from Berlin to Basel. The seats were comfortable, but it was a bit too noisy.... Otherwise, friendly staff and good service. Hygiene standard impeccable. Price-performance ratio very good. I would recommend it to others. The facilities are great. The cleanliness too. The train was very punctual.
