My journey from Paris to Amsterdam turned out to be excellent. I personally liked the price. The train also arrived on time. Although it was a long journey of around seven hours, there was no need to change trains. This made my journey much easier. However, the noise level was not adequate. Unfortunately, no consideration was given to hygiene. The toilets were not clean and well maintained. I also didn't find the seats particularly comfortable. Overall, a good journey.

My journey from Paris to Amsterdam was great as the price was quite reasonable. Also, the price was fair for me for the distance. The staff were very friendly, polite and respectful. They also helped me several times when I had some questions. The volume on the train was optimal and appropriate. However, the train did not arrive on time in Amsterdam. In addition, the seats were not comfortable. This of course made the journey more difficult. There were also several changes of trains, which made the journey more time-consuming. I had to change trains several times with my heavy luggage. But overall it was a good journey!

The train journey from Paris to Amsterdam was amazingly good. It offered reasonable value for money which gave me an affordable travelling experience. The staff on board were friendly, helpful and provided a pleasant service throughout the journey. The wifi connection on the train was stable and reliable, allowing me to easily access the internet during the journey. There were occasional long delays, which greatly affected the overall experience of the journey. The cleanliness of the train may have left something to be desired as some areas were not always optimally cleaned, for example the toilets. The booking system could be improved to provide passengers with an easier and more efficient way to reserve seats and change seat preferences. But overall a great trip.

The outward journey was much worse than the return journey, because this time my train was on time and quite well equipped. There was wifi on board and my seat was comfortable so I watched a film. The only thing that could be improved is the cleanliness, which was lacking, especially in the toilet. The service was satisfactory. In my opinion, it is a good option for travelling.

My journey from Paris to Amsterdam was pretty good. The staff was very friendly and they always did their best to clarify the concerns and interests of their guests. Therefore, I felt very well taken care of. The wifi was very efficient and stable. I was able to surf the internet and make calls, stay entertained or do important work at any time. What's more, there were only a few transfers necessary. This allowed me to relax as I didn't have to keep changing trains with my luggage. The train also arrived in Amsterdam on time. However, I found the price expensive and not worth it for the journey. Disappointingly, the seats were not comfortable and cosy. So unfortunately I couldn't rest and relax during the journey. The noise level on the train was not optimal and appropriate. The hygiene conditions were also poor, as the toilets and seats were not clean and tidy. But overall it was a good journey, with hygiene and price being important factors for me.
