train #SE20 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Nov 18, 2019
Everything went smoothly. A worker approached us within the first 30 minutes of departing if we wanted to pay a little extra to get upgraded to VIP or get our own cabin. We declined and still had the whole cabin to ourselves for the whole trip. Would definitely do another overnight trip.

Train facilities great. Sadly there was a noisy drinking party in the car that kept us awake. Surprised the conductors didn’t stop the party.

train #SE20 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Nov 9, 2019
Unsere Zufahrt war eine Erfahrung für sich. Wir buchten ein 4er Abteil. Kurz nach dem einsteigen wurden wir von einem Schaffner gefragt ob wir für einen Aufpreis mehr Privatsphäre möchten. Das fangen wir sehr dreist, vor allem weil er und dann noch „gedroht“ hat, dass zwei Personen mehr in unser Abteil kommen. Wir hatten ja bereits gerechnet, immerhin ist es ein 4er Abteil. Die Nacht im Zug war sehr wackelig und wir rechneten damit, dass der Schaffner noch mal reinschneit. Die haben einen extra Schlüssel um aufzuschließen, eigentlich gut aber wir fühlen uns dadurch irgendwie nicht ganz so wohl. Nach dem Zug fühlt man sich ein wenig „seekrank“ weil es eben so gewackelt hat.

Went for first class sleeper, ended up with the cabin to ourselves although they did try get us to pay to keep it that way! "Soft" beds is a stretch and air con is definitely effective so bring layers. Rocky enough journey as most train travel is so quite difficult to sleep , Other than that to be honest it exceeded our expectations based on previous reviews, perfectly clean and bathroom kept clean and stocked with paper and soap throughout journey.

train #SE20 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Oct 28, 2019
The trip itself was straight forward and fine. We managed to sleep on the train which was good. We had the top 2 bunks which in my opinion were better as you could see out of the window from the top bunk and also store your luggage up above on the shelf too. We booked for 2 people in the 1st class cabin which holds 4 people. About 20 minutes after leaving the train station one of the train operators came round asking us if we wanted to have the whole cabin to ourself for 500,000 VND, and then lowered it to 400,000 VND and said if we didn’t pay that someone else would join us in the cabin. It was obviously a scam. We declined and no one did come to the cabin and it remained empty. Just a word of caution to anyone else.

We were lucky and got a 4-bed cabin all to ourselves. The ride was quite loud but we were so tired that we fell asleep easily. Service was punctual.

The space in the first class was good and beds were much better than expected with a nice pillow and a cover. Unfortunately there were lots of baby cockroaches on the train which we didn't notice until 6am. We also got someone trying to sell the whole cabin to us but we knew no one had booked one of the beds. Luckily we said no!

We booked the 1st class sleeper cabin from Hue to Ninh Binh. The blankets and pillows were nice, decent air conditioning, and I liked that each bed had its own USB port. I was under the impression that water and a small snack were included in the first class price, but all I saw was a water dispenser at the end of the train car which only dispensed hot and boiling water; and I saw no food. Bathroom was not very clean, but toliet paper was stocked. Our cabin itself was also not as clean as I would have expected, the floor was really dirty, and the trash can still had trash from previous riders. People in the cabin next to us started blasting music, yelling at each other, and smoking cigarettes at 4:30am. The behavior of other guests isn't the operator's fault, but it would be nice if staff made rounds to ensure everyone was behaving respectfully and following rules. Overall our ride was satisfactory, but a little disappointing given how much we paid for the first class cabin.

We booked a 4 bed cabin on the night train from Hue to Ninh Binh. Everything was perfect. We used the upper beds ans there was enough space to store our big Backpacks. The aircondition was Working well and the blankets and pillows were clean. On the trip the train stopped often. We could sleep well during the trip because all passengers were really quiet. The staff cleaned the floor on the corridor for several times. The train was im time. We can recommend taking the night train in Vietnam!

Soft sleeper for our family of 4 was perfect. Sanitary facilities basic but not too bad. 12 ours for 400 km means a lot of stops.

Got a dirty cabin with two Vietnamese locals who blasted loud music from their phones. Luckily it was possible to give the train personnel a little extra in order to get a upgrade to an empty VIP cabin.
