Reviews & ratings Rotterdam - Paris
Our train left on time, was comfortable and quiet
Whilst only half an hour this trip was on time and comfortable. I would certainly recommend the rail network to travel.
Comfortable seats. Clean train. Friendly service. Much easier than going by plane.
We travelled first class and the trip was comfortable, punctual and the staff very good. The seats were more comfortable than the Thalys. Boarding and disembarking was a lot easier than flying. It was a great way to travel, However, in contrast to the Thalys, there was no offer of drinks or snacks during the journey. If we wanted anything to eat or drink we had to go to the Food/Drink bar and pay for desired items. We were expecting it to be like the Thalys and at least get a cup of tea or coffee but it was not offered to us at any stage of the journey. Also, we were unable to connect to the free WiFi for reasons unknown. Considering it was a first class ticked I was rather disappointed in that.
Everything was easy, pleasant and comfortable, plus a free wifi!
I love these fast trains: they are on time, the staff is very friendly and helpful and they are very fast!
We had to make travel arrangements at the last moment before leaving Australia. Not receiving the tickets and full confirmation for 3 working days is not very reassuring as we had to book and pay for a hotel as well at the same time, whilst not knowing whether we had a secured seat on the train. In this day and age booking should be instant. Train trip to Paris was excellent. Return trip had some major issue in regards to cleanliness in the toilet department with the ladies toilet closed and the gents with almost an inch of liquid on the floor. In the final analysis - booking process for Australians is poor, train, seating comfort and speed of transport is fantastic and then the toilet issue - we leave that up to your imagination.
From the centre of one capital city to another - the ease of catching a train rather than the hassle of airport transfers and time wasted for check in and boarding. This is the most efficient use of time when travelling. And it was quite comfortable - sure it's not a limousine but it's more than appropriate for the price.
Fabulous experience on Thalys. Highly recommended.
Booking easy, tickets received by mail within a few days. Great price and good value for money. Travelling in peak summer season train was full but that is expected. Would definitely book with Rail Europe again.
The TGV is fast, but I found the second class legroom insufficient. I am a tall 183cm person, the problem was with the footrest, if that was not there or could be tucked away better I would have had enough legroom. The 2nd class German ICE had fantastic legroom.
The Thalys was fast and comfortable.
Excellent value for money trip.The one thing I would like to see improved is some indication of the carriage numbers.Your ticket may state carriage no 17 but the train may only have 10 cars. If you have heavy suitcases and you get on carriage 15 instead of 17 you have a very difficult task to get where you belong. Once bitten twice shy , so ask the the station attendant where the carriage you are on where it normally stops
We travelled with Thalys twice. Firstly from Paris Nord to Rotterdam which was great. Seats are extremely comfortable and service was great. Our trip from Rotterdam to Bruxelles was not as good. There was someone in our reserved seats and we were told to stand and wait until the train started again and then they would move them out of our seats. Not good enough. There was also luggage everywhere because they allowed people to bring more bags than they were supposed too. It was cramped and disorganised until we were able to sit in our seats.
Signalling problem caused the train to shut down on the track 3 times making us 1 hour late into Paris. Luckily we still got to Charles de Gaulle Airport on time. Space for luggage is limited. The designated area was full and several of us had to leave our bags in another doorway. Apart from that the train is comfortable and pleasant to travel in for a couple of hours.
