"Raileurope is the best"Chin En w.

"Enjoyable trip"Raymon C D s. 17/04/2014
I used Austria Night Train from Wien Westbahnhof to Venezia S Lucia with my wife and daughter. We took the T3 Sleeper. The cabin in seating position is a little bit small and cramp - not leaving extra space inside the cabin. We had 4 cabin size luggage and we were feeling lucky that we have the cabin size luggage because otherwise it will take up so much space. Once the seat changed to bed mode, then it is more comfortable. We can lie down and take a sleep. I was surprised with the amenities, we got water, slippers, tooth brush and sparkling wine. However, they were quite bulky and take up so much space. Overall, the bed is comfortable so we can sleep throughout the night. In the morning we got some breakfast but they were all very minimal. The staff was very friendly and make the trip become more enjoyable. So, I would recommend this mode of transportation: 1) you save your airfare cost and 2) you save on your one night hotel because you can sleep in the train :)

The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down!

Clean, comfortable, punctual journey. Good timings. A bit on the costly side. 4 stars
