I would like to say in advance that I am passing on the trip because everything came over positively. What I liked most was the temperature on the train, as it was very pleasant. The wifi was good, my seat was comfortable, I had power sockets and the whole train was clean. The train looked very nice and modern. The food was very fresh and tasty. There was also nice staff and my train arrived on time too.

A few weeks ago, I used Deutsche Bahn to travel from Hamburg to Frankfurt am Main. The journey was very pleasant. I was able to connect my mobile phone to wifi. Also, the seats were very comfortable and very well maintained. The service of the workers was excellent, you were very friendly and you also responded immediately to an important issue. The toilets were also very clean. The train arrived in Frankfurt am Main on time. In addition, the price was quite good. In summary, a very good trip after all.
Pro

Cons
IconNo wifi
I had two power sockets and a couple of USB sockets, but the wifi didn't work. The seats were very comfortable and the noise level on the train was very quiet. Making a reservation at the ticket machine was also no problem and the staff were very nice. The toilets were also very clean and easy to use. I found the price a bit overpriced, but what can you do?

I recently took a train journey from Hamburg to Frankfurt and overall it was an average experience. The price for the trip was unfortunately not very cheap, which disappointed me a bit. The trains were on time and comfortable, but I think there should be more for the price. The interior of the train was clean and well maintained but lacked a bit of atmosphere and charm. There was enough space for luggage and legroom, but the seats were not very comfortable and I had to change my position a few times during the journey to sit more comfortably. One of the biggest drawbacks of the train journey was the lack of entertainment during the trip. There were no entertainment options such as movies or music, and no practical amenities such as power sockets or wifi. Overall, the train journey from Hamburg to Frankfurt was a solid experience, but I think the price was higher compared to other train companies without any corresponding benefits.
Pro
Iconcool atmosphere
I travelled in 2nd class. There were no negative things, everything went solid and as expected, so it gets 5 stars, and if it gets 5 stars, I can recommend it. The train was very nice and clean. The view from the window was also very nice and the atmosphere was great. My coffee latte macchiato was cheap and very high quality. I also had no problems with the wifi, the staff had performed well. It was a great trip.
Pro
IconPunctuality
I drove this ride today and it was really great. I didn't notice anything bad. The train arrived on time and I also arrived in Frankfurt on time. The wifi was very good and the seats were very comfortable. I can happily recommend the trip to others, as my ticket was also relatively cheap. I travelled in 2nd class and the toilets were very clean. I also really liked my coffee, it had a high quality taste. The journey was great and the staff were very nice.

Cons
IconNot favourable
IconNot quite clean
On this journey in the ICE, the wifi worked and I had access to a power socket. The seats were comfortable and it was pleasantly quiet in the compartment. I had my own food with me and could eat it in peace. The staff were very friendly. I did not reserve a seat. I didn't have to change trains, but all in all, I don't think the price-performance ratio is that good.
Pro
IconGood price
IconSocket connection available
IconThere is wifi
Cons
IconIt takes a while until the papers are printed out.
I sat in a seat directly by the window, where there was also a power socket that was in almost constant use. Since I had to do some small work on the train, the good internet connection and the comfortable seats were a great advantage. I was not distracted by the noise as I was wearing headphones, but it was generally bearable. My seat was clean and for the price I paid for the journey, it was very good value for money. In the end, I arrived on time and was very satisfied.

IconUnfortunately not clean
IconUnpunctuality
I usually only book with a seat reservation. This time we didn't do that. We had nice and quiet seats the whole way. Unfortunately, the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The table was sticky and the empty coffee cups were left standing while the ladies were busy selling coffee on the train. The train was 25 minutes late. Compared to other train journeys, however, this is acceptable. The wifi is fast and it's very easy to connect. I will continue to leave the car behind more often and travel the long distances by train.

Cons
IconUnpunctuality
I bought the tickets for 2 adults (grandma and me). The price was unfortunately very expensive, well, it must have been the new year. The second class was not like the first, but it worked. The train ride was a bit late but the wifi on the ICE was a great connection. The comfort of the train was also ok, no noisy people and you could relax very well. The ICE service was friendly, but the prices of the products were very overpriced. However, I was very surprised at the hygiene, as DB is actually unhygienic, but at this ICE was very clean and no walls were scratched. Gladly 5 stars but the delays were very annoying.

This was a great journey in second class, which I would recommend. The wifi was good. I had a power outlet at my seat, my seat was comfortable. There was a button you could press to call a member of staff. The staff were friendly and personable and delivered my order quickly. It was clean, especially in the toilets. My train arrived on time and I also arrived on time.

On my return journey from Hamburg, I made a short stopover in Frankfurt. I have to say that travelling by train is really nice. Everything was very clean. The wifi reception was also excellent and there was a quiet atmosphere on the train. As on the outward journey, the staff were also very friendly and helpful. In terms of price, I have to say that the train ticket is cheaper than travelling by car, although the train journey is also much more pleasant.

It was basically a very pleasant journey. Power sockets were available on the train, the Flixbus had very friendly staff and it was very clean. The toilets were extremely clean. The journey time was exactly as advertised and the price-performance ratio, as you would expect from Flixbus, was excellent. My only complaint about the FlixTrain trains are the uncomfortable seats.

Iconstress
The train journey offered a pleasant and friendly staff, however space was limited. It was very noisy and after a while it becomes uncomfortable because the space is limited, this detracts a little from the comfort. On top of that, guests put their bags wherever they want, even if it's over your seat.
