"Thalys Brussels to Amsterdam"Ann c. 22/12/2014
Train was very crowded on a Friday evening commuter hours and my seat was already occupied but I found a seat nearby. There were no problems with the travel but I would appreciate a catering provision of drinks/snacks trolley on the train. Ann
"The train was delayed "Seif El-din s. 16/11/2014
The train was delayed for 35 min on my return trip which is very risky if you have a plane to catch like I did. I almost missed my flight
"Thalys Trip Brussels to Amster". 15/11/2014
It was an excellent trip with helpful and courteous staff. The train maintained very good time and it was maintained well also. The best part was the WiFi on the train which helped me see mail and do some work too!!
"Just ok "Rishabh j. 09/11/2014
Nothing like first class in it. The steward in the train was very rude and was serving as if it was not his job to serve food on the train.
