I recently took a trip from Berlin to Prague with Deutsche Bahn. The staff on the train were very friendly. They were very nice and always had a smile on their face. Hygiene was extremely well taken care of and the toilets were very clean. The train also arrived in Prague on time. However, I found the price very high. There were many changes of trains, which made the journey difficult. It was also very noisy on the train, so I felt uncomfortable. Overall, it was fine.
Pro

IconQuick
Contra
IconNone
The ride was super nice and pleasant. Through beautiful countryside. It's worth doing the tour just for the scenery. We sat in a small compartment. Everyone was friendly and it is much more pleasant than travelling by car. We were able to work very well in our small compartment. Wifi was good most of the time, but there were periods where it didn't work. Booked spontaneously. Still a good price. Toilets were a bit old, but okay!
Pro
IconGreat food
IconBest connection without changing trains
IconNice, Czech staff
Contra
IconIn fact no disadvantage
Whenever I go to Prague with my girlfriend or friends, we use the old German IC trains from Berlin to Prague. You can get to Prague in 4.5 hours without changing trains. You can eat delicious goulash and Czech specialities in the board restaurant. The staff doesn't speak perfect German, but it's good enough for ordering. The train is much faster than you would get there by car. And it's also much cheaper.

IconNo stop at the main station
The train arrived on time and was pissed off. It was an old Czech Railways Eurocity model, which is common on the route. The toilet was also sour. The staff at the check called. The train arrived a few minutes late and unfortunately did not stop in Prague main station, but a little outside.
