    Budapest to Vienna |
    "My train trip from Budapest to Vienna was very quick and quiet. I didn't really enjoy facing in the opposite direction but that was the seat I was allocated. I was also told that the $82 that I paid for the journey was a lot more than others had paid. It was good that I could buy the ticket on the raileurope site but found it inconvenient that I couldn't just print the ticket. I had to have it posted to my address. I would have preferred a few options for eg being able to just print the ticket or check in by mobile or have bought the ticket and picked it up at the station and maybe 24hrs before choose at seat like a plane. The train was comfortable but facing the wrong way. Value for money - being told that I could have bought the ticket cheaper (I bought it 3 months before I travelled). The convenience - being able to buy the ticket but there were no options other than mailing to my address. "

    Budapest Keleti /Wien Miedling |
    "Did this trip with a family of five on the 20th of June.Trip was supposed to be approximately 2.5 Hrs but ended up being 3.5Hrs due to a portion of track that was flooded.We headed to the next station(cant remember offhand) after keleti and were told to take coaches to Gyor,where the awaiting Railjet would take us to Wien.This caused an additional 1 Hr travelling time.There were no warnings beforehand in Keleti whatsoever of the change in routing and we were only told once the conductor did his routine checks.Would appreciate if perhaps sms warnings of disruption could be provided in the future.Without the disruption however,I would be well satisfied with the entire process.Definitely recommended, "

    Great train ride |
    "Our experience on the Railjet from Vienna to Budapest. We had reserved seats which were reasonably comfortable. There was Wifi and electrical power, a waitress taking orders for snacks and drinks, and even a complimentary Twix bar when we embarked. The only negative was after our arrival in the Budapest station when we were greeted by a dishonest taxi driver who seemed to be aware that Americans might be confused by the currency and wanted 18,000 forints for a one mile ride to our hotel, about $90. He told us this when he stopped for us to get cash from an ATM a block from the station. When I returned from the ATM, I took our suitcases from the trunk and my family and I walked back to the station where customer service got us a driver for a flat fee of 1800 forints. The dishonest driver seemed to have rigged his meter which had gone from 300 to more than 3000 in a block. In short, enjoy the train ride, but beware of taxi drivers in Budapest. "
