Pro
Iconpunctual
Iconvery fast
Iconquiet and comfortable
Cons
IconWC was slightly dirty
I booked the trip from Paris to Marseille in advance via the internet. This worked great and I received the tickets to print out by email. The station in Paris was clean, the time for boarding was calculated very adequately. There is nothing to be afraid of - once you have checked in with your card and you are on the platform, all you have to do is find your carriage and your seat. There is plenty of storage space for suitcases. The seats are great because you can also move them forwards and backwards. The backrest is also adjustable. The wifi is great and during the whole journey from Paris to Marseille it was only down once. There are also power sockets so that you can charge your smartphone during the journey. It was quiet in the compartment - no one made any noise. The conductors were friendly. The toilet was also ok so far, but with a longer journey it was no longer as clean as at the beginning. All in all, it was a quiet, comfortable and pleasant journey, which is a real alternative to the flight. I can only recommend this.
Pro
IconGood wifi
Cons
IconDirty toilets
I travelled from Paris to Marseille and was largely satisfied with the journey. The train was slightly delayed, which I didn't find too bad. What I found worse, however, was that the toilets on the train were quite filthy. On the positive side, the wifi had a very good connection and I was able to work well on the journey. The staff didn't make an appearance, so I can't say too much about the service.
Pro
IconCleanliness
Cons
IconPersonnel
I was a little disappointed as the staff were anything but friendly or helpful. However, the aspect of hygiene and cleanliness was all the better. The seats were very comfortable and I had plenty of room. The wifi and reception were very fast and constant. I bought the ticket on the website, which in retrospect I was very happy about. I recommend the connection.
Pro
IconCleanliness
Cons
IconDid not exist
I have nothing to criticise about the train connection. The train was on time to the minute. In addition, the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. I also like the fact that the toilets and the compartment were very clean and hygienic. The price for the ticket on the website was reasonable. In conclusion, I can only recommend the journey to anyone.
