Hello everyone. A short time ago I travelled with DB from Cologne to London. The price was very cheap and acceptable compared to air tickets to London. The staff was very friendly and served their customers well. The seats were very comfortable and clean and well maintained. The toilets were also very clean, which of course I was pleased about. What didn't go well was mainly the wifi connection. It was very poor. The volume in the train was so high and I couldn't relax at all. I also had to change trains several times, which I didn't really like. All in all, it was a good train journey with Deutsche Bahn.
