I went to Berlin, to Frankfurt, a month ago. The toilet was very clean and so were the seats. In addition, I could travel directly without changing trains, which was very good. The price-performance ratio was also very good. The staff were also very young. What was also good was that the journey was relatively quick. It was also very quiet, so I could work well. I would go again.
Pro
Iconcool atmosphere
IconHeaters
Contra
IconThe toilets did not have a pleasant smell.
I drove at noon. It was a fast and cool ride. I can recommend it because the heaters were on and I had a table at my seat. I travelled alone in 2nd class. But I deduct 1 star because the toilets did not have a pleasant smell. The price was OK. The midday rides are cool.
Pro
IconHeaters, windows and table at the seat
Contra
Iconthe train was too late
It was a journey with very empathetic people as it was very quiet on the train. I had a table at my seat and a window. The wifi was good and the heaters were on. The toilets were clean my ticket was cheap but unfortunately the train was delayed by half an hour so 4 out of 5 stars generally a great train journey. I can recommend it to anyone as I don't think the train will be late again. Also, a lot of attention was paid to hygiene and the toilets were clean. Great ride!
Pro
IconFriendly staff
Contra
IconPoor wifi
IconCompletely overcrowded
The departure was almost on time, only 3 minutes late. However, the train was very full, which was very noticeable with the wifi, as it was often barely usable. I suspect this was due to too many users. The comfort check-in was not usable via the app and was a bit more complicated via the website. Apparently, the train did not expect the rush or did not consider that many customers might also eat a lot. After a little more than two hours after departure, most of the small snacks were no longer available. Instead, it was so cold in the carriage that some people took out their jackets and hats. From Fulda onwards, however, this was no longer decisive, as the train was so crowded that it was hardly possible to get to the bistro anyway, as the aisles were blocked by standing people and suitcases. In Frankfurt, a small delay then extended, as it has done many times before, so that the connecting train in Mannheim was actually no longer accessible, but the railway solved this elegantly, it was also late, so it worked out again. But two stones for the friendly staff and at least I arrived.
Pro
IconCleanliness of the train
IconBoarding staff very courteous
IconWifi worked, so streaming was also possible
IconLarge selection of food and drinks
Contra
IconNone
It was a very interesting trip and we were on time at the destination station and at departure. I would like to emphasise the friendliness of the staff and the large selection of food and drinks in the on-board bistro. The train was very clean and so were the toilets. During the train journey, a cleaning employee went through and emptied the rubbish bins that were in the corridor. Our seat reservation was displayed on the seat so we knew immediately which were our seats.
Pro
IconVery nice staff
I had access to wifi on the train. My seat was very comfortable and I had my own power socket on my seat. It was very clean on the train and the toilets were also very clean. The food tasted very good. I had ordered a croissant, which tasted very very good. I can recommend it to everyone because it is great value for money.

IconPossible delays
I am happy with the journey from Berlin Hauptbahnhof to Frankfurt am Main Hauptbahnhof. There is no point in taking this route by car or by plane. It takes 4 hours to get there. And there is always something to eat and drink. Especially if you travel this route with work colleagues or friends, you can have a drink or two together. The cleanliness on the trains is always good. Sometimes there is dirt in the toilets. Price/performance is definitely unbeatable.
Pro
IconPunctuality
Contra
IconNo wifi
That was a very great train journey. I almost missed my train, but luckily the driver was nice enough to wait 2 minutes longer. Thanks to him, I was able to catch the train. The staff were very nice and the driver was also very nice. Unfortunately, I didn't have wifi on the train, but I used my mobile data. The toilets were very clean and I felt comfortable while using them. It was also relatively quiet on the train, with babies crying every now and then, but that's not a bad thing. It's great value for money. I can recommend it.
Pro
IconVery pleasant ride
Contra
IconToilet was locked
I travelled in 1st class from Berlin to Frankfurt in the ICE Sprinter. There was a 230 V socket at my seat in a separate compartment. The wifi was available, but depending on the region the ICE was in, it was not permanently stable and fast on the internet. However, the connection to the mobile phone was permanently maintained. The leather seats in 1st class are sufficiently large, comfortable and can be easily tilted backwards. Seat reservation is included in 1st class. It was very quiet in the compartment. The on-board staff asked 2 times for drinks at the seat. I ordered beer and coffee for an acceptable price. The taste was good and the drinks were served in glasses or cups. Staff and conductor were very friendly. Announcements were understandable and sufficient. The toilet was clean at the beginning but was closed halfway through the journey for an unknown reason. We had to move to the next carriage, which led to queues. The train left on time and even arrived 2 minutes earlier. There was no need to change trains. However, the journey was too expensive for the ticket price booked. Maybe it was because of the short notice.
Pro

Contra
IconDelays
I travelled from Berlin to Frankfurt a.Main by ICE. I had booked 1st class. Seat reservation included in this booking class. The train compartment was clean. Seats adjustable to a comfortable position for resting. Toilets clean, disinfectant available. Good proximity to the on-board bistro - but service is also offered if one wishes. Friendly and attentive staff. Direct connection with 2 short stops in Halle and Erfurt. Pleasant room temperature in the compartment. Free wifi included, but it is more bad than good - constant interruptions. There is a power socket and USB port in every seat. Sufficient stowage facilities.

The train from Berlin to Frankfurt am Main was a pleasant journey. It was a quick journey, right across Germany, without any delays. This was also due to the few stops in between. The train was also on time on arrival. Both in Berlin and at the destination in Frankfurt. It was also possible to purchase drinks and snacks. The only regret was the cleanliness of the toilets.

The train from Berlin to Frankfurt Central Station is a fast journey, and travelling across Germany. Compared to travelling by car, the train journey is very inexpensive. In addition, the train arrived on time and all other connecting trains could be reached at the destination. Unfortunately, the train was very full, so many passengers were unable to get a seat. However, this could also be due to a train that had previously been cancelled and the passengers then changed to this train.
Pro
IconCleanliness
Contra
IconPersonnel
Unfortunately, the staff on this train connection were not really open to questions and responded rather unfriendly. Otherwise, there was a good network connection and stable mobile phone reception. I found the train to be perfectly clean and hygienic. I was able to buy my ticket online without any complicating problems. Another great detail is that power sockets have been provided on the train.
