IconBroken wifi
I travel very often with the Westbahn, but this time I have to say that it wasn't as good as last time because for some reason you couldn't connect to the wifi. On the other hand, the toilets were still clean, the staff were nice and it was again quick and easy to make a reservation. The train always arrives on time and had comfortable seats. The sockets at the seats work, and the volume of the announcements also, but because of the wifi only 3 out of 5 stars.

I would like to evaluate my train journey from Vienna to Prague. The train was state of the art and offered good wifi and power sockets, which I was pleased with and found convenient. The seats were also extremely comfortable, which also added to my comfort. Unfortunately, the atmosphere on the train was not pleasant. It was very noisy and crowded, which made the journey uncomfortable. Nevertheless, I was overall satisfied with the comfort of the train, as I could easily block out the noise through my headphones.
