My journey from Lyon to Paris was very relaxing as the seats were very comfortable and cosy. The price wasn't too expensive either. The staff were very friendly and there was no need to change trains, which made the journey easier. Unfortunately, the noise level was not adequate and no attention was paid to hygiene. The toilets stank and were not well maintained. The reservation process was also complicated. Overall a good trip, as the good features outweighed the bad.

My journey from Paris to Lyon turned out to be very good. The wifi connection was very efficient and allowed me to do the work from my laptop. The price was very good. The staff were extremely friendly, respectful and polite. However, I did not find the seats comfortable. Unfortunately, the volume on the train was not appropriate. In addition, the train did not arrive on time in Lyon. Overall a great journey as the good points outweighed the bad.

The train journey from Paris to Lyon was satisfactory overall. The attractive price, the friendly staff and the good hygiene, especially in the toilets and seats, made the journey pleasant. Nevertheless, the volume on the train was not adequate, and the need to change trains and a weak wifi connection were noticeable. Nevertheless, I can rate the journey as positive overall.

My journey from Paris to Lyon was amazingly good. The staff were very friendly and always had a big smile on their faces. The wifi connection was very efficient and fast. This made communication and entertainment easier as I was able to make calls for example. The seats were very comfortable and well-maintained and attention was paid to hygiene, as the toilets were clean and well-maintained. The train also arrived in Lyon on time. Unfortunately, the volume was not adequate and there were several transfers which made the journey more difficult and I found the price a little expensive.
