Reviews & ratings Vienna - Budapest
I love Railjet because of low prices and comfort
Hi the train journey was very good. the two hours flew and it was very comfortable
The train journey was really very comfortable.
A convenient and comfortable train ride with exclusive treatment when taking the first class coach. Food served was good and the ride was smooth. Only missing element was the wifi connectivity which was not working
We enjoyed traveling by rail from Vienna to Budapest. The trains are always on time, no queues and security checks at the airport. Lovely scenery too.
i total recomend to go by train!!
Everything is very smooth. The train is tidy and comfort. The only one thing is that it is better to have online print ticket rather than going to office to take it. It will be more convenient.
it was my first time to travel through Europe by train and it was awesome time. our seats was very comfortable , very quite train , we loved it.
The train is new, clean and comfortable but delay a bit. For the reservation, the website does not allow us to choose the departing station in Budapest. We would rather leave at Keleti station not Kelenfoe as shown in the ticket so I asked the customer service in Singapore as I booked via raileurope.co.th and they recommend us to take a metro to Kelenfoe station or go to Keleti station and ask the staff there ourselves. We don't find the answers very helpful so we contacted Customer Care at Rail Europe and received very clear answer from Mike that departing from either station in Budapest is fine.
I live in Puerto Rico and I bought the tickets via internet. I received them in two days. Very good experience in the train.
We arrived at the station in Budapest and a porter approached us immediately and asked where we were travelling and if we had our tickets and a reservation. We showed him our tickets and he loaded our bags, took us right to our carriage and transferred all our luggage on to the train. The train was on time and everything was smooth.
very good experience.No issues
We booked our tickets from Budapest to Vienna in January 2015 using the so-called RailEurope online service. We had to pay an extra 18 EUR for the tickets to be printed out and shipped to us in Germany from - wait for it - Mumbai, India! Furthermore, we could not reserve seats online and we had to pay Student fare for our 12 year old son. Once the got on the train, quell surprise, the train was packed and we had to stand in the crowded aisles for the whole 2 1/2 hour journey from Budapest to Vienna. Our tickets were never checked and we could and should have travelled on that train for free. I would never recommend booking train fares online with RailEurope to anyone. Just turn up at the local train station ahead of time and buy your fares there. The local train station are the only service that can let you know if you can reserve seats anyway. What a travesty. 0 points to you for the worst train experience I have ever had.
The station is not the main station. I should go to the Kelenfoe station to get the train information about the platform number , and then go outside the station and run to the railway platform with big luggage to take the train. It is more convenient to take the train from Keleti Railway Station (Keleti Pályaudvar)
