Reviews & ratings Rotterdam - Paris
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.
The train was extremely comfortable, and very easy to book the tickets, which arrived very promptly . The only Down side was that the luggage area seamed to be not quite adequate for the amount of passengers, as many Passengers are arriving from a cruise ship and as a result have quite a bit of luggage.
Traveling with Thalys is very convenient, however, I think it is quite expensive and no always the best value. I find the Paris Nord terminal not very comfortable, crowded and departures are announced too close to the time of leaving. I am also disappointed that paying for the ticket is quite complicated for someone who travels as much as I do, since I have problem using my credit card issued in Australia, when I am currently in Europe. I haven't received satisfactory support from the Thalys Service team either. Due to those difficulties, I chose to travel by plane on my next trip from London to Rotterdam, and am still trying to figure out how to purchase Rotterdam to Paris ticket!
