"may ien" A. Posted on 21/03/2018The train was full. Lots of people standing in the bar area (which was next to the carriage I was in), so it was a bit noisy with people talking.
"jia min" C. Posted on 19/03/2018This was the first time that I bought the seats at comfort zone.
Adnan B. Posted on 19/03/2018Good Trip except validating my online booking.
Bruce I. Posted on 17/03/2018In first class, there is no service, just a bigger seat. On the outbound trip, there were no electric outlets. The wifi is limited. Thalys is never my train brand of choice and it gets worse as the years go on.
Christopher C. Posted on 16/03/2018The Wi-Fi was very poorThe train starts to look a little dated
Peter H. Posted on 16/03/2018Very full train.
