The whole familiy traveled from Amsteredam to Brussels by train and the experiance and time saved is much more than taking a jet plain. Lots of space, food and drinks. Overall good experiance also for the kids.
"excellent train conncetion"Yoav h. 20/10/2013
Amsterdam CS is centrally located in the heart of Amsterdam, access to this station from any hotels in Amsterdam in convenient using the tram. Train schedule is very punctual and it is value for money if you were to book a first class cabin when the offer is not too far off from the price of normal cabin. Lunch is served for the first class cabin with wine and all the extra. It is a comfortable ride all the way to Brussel Midi station.
"Nice Trip"Alexandre c. 02/10/2013
I enjoyed my trip from Amsterdam to Brussels very much. The train was on schedule and it was very comfortable. The only aspect I did not like was the fact that we cannot choose our own seat and coach.
