Train cabin experience
Sleeping in the train cabin was uncomfortable for 4 people (2 adults and 2 children). We had no shits and blankets and didn't want ot pay extra. The toilet and shower were clean, the continental breakfast tasty, and the service was very good.

Very good 8,0
I initially booked the train cabin for my family of 6 because the rooms were fully booked. Upon seeing how small they were, I went to the front desk to request a transfer to a family room. The place was fully booked that night, but they were able to get us into one for the following two nights. The staff was very helpful and quick to accommodate our needs.
