Reviews & ratings Vienna - Budapest
While the train was good, we were booked to leave from a station other then the main railway station. Lucky the train conductor let us get on at this station and we had to stand until we arrived at the correct destination on our ticket (as the people in our seats departed at this station)
Luggage lockers were hard to find - better signage would improve that. The journey to Austria was great. Thank you.
Great trip - easy to organise through Rail Europe, was a little shocked though that i couldn't print my tickets at home, as i was leaving Australia much sooner than the planned train journey, we were lucky the tickets arrived by post within a few days, before we flew to Europe. Train was great seats were allocated luckily, as some locals who didn't have seats allocated had to stand most of the way and wait for a seat to become vacant. All in all very easy to purchase and travel. Would definitely use Rail Europe again.
We had to change trains and be bussed around the flooded area to join the next train as part of the journey. Dragged our cases over tracks and onto hot buses. I accept this is not really the fault of the rail system which is generally excellent.
The train was first class, modern and extremely clean. In addition to this there was a monitor in the carriage, which provided information on the arrival times of the various stations. The train left and arrived on time. Prague to Berlin The experience was poor to average. I had been asked if it was a German, or a Czech train (prior to the journey). It was a Czech train - and now I know why I was asked the above question. Information provided onboard was verbal and extremely difficult to understand. The station in Prague is magnificent.
From the time I booked this trip (Which included emailing me when the booking opens) to the time I got off the train in Vienna, everything was perfect. Avoiding the long check in times at airports, I found the rail trip was a substantial time saver and convenient as one ended up relatively close to ones hotel. A perfect way to travel over the short distances in Europe.
