We were pleasantly surprised by our 1st class sleeper train journey. Cabin was comfortable and with clean bedding. Toilet was ok too and again clean. Beds are a little hard for a 'soft bed' but we had a good rest/sleep. Would recommend this way of travel.

Beds were what you expected but the blankets were too thin for how cold the AC was set. Also the door would not close/lock and the usb port on one of the two beds was broken.

Comfortable and clean beds. We got some complementary water, diet coke and beer when we arrived in our cabin. In the morning we got some pasteries, banana and coffee/tea for breakfast. Overall, we were really happy with the experience! Would reccommend!

Train was on time. Coach was old and worn down but clean enough. Toilets do smell, but that was to be expected. The train was full and we shared our cabin with a very nice couple. There was enough room for all our luggage within the cabin. The bed sheets were clean and we were able to sleep a little as well. It's a shacky ride and I recommend to take a motion sickness pill in case you are sensitive (as I am). Overall the trip was good and we would do it again.

Heel veel beter dan de nachttrein van Vietnam railway. Als je het kunt betalen zou ik je aanraden met Laman te reizen. Comfortabeler en schoner. Kregen zelfs een ontbijtje en koffie of thee. Ook zitten drankjes zoals water, fris en bier inbegrepen bij de prijs.

It was pretty much that what I had expected. The (soft} beds were okay, the toilets not so good (smell) and a bit noisy. So for us not too bad at all. Specially the view is sometimes breath taking

This was a great trip and the overnight sleeper train (VIP 2 berth) was worth every penny for my husband and myself. The berths were comfortable, the service was excellent and the ride was fun! In the morning, we had time to talk with our neighbors on the train, an opportunity to see the countryside and everything was handled by helpful and knowledgeable staff. We would definitely travel this way again!

The trip in the VIP sleeper was ok. However, when I booked it appeared we had two cabins. Instead my family slept in one cabin and I had a bed in a second cabin with a Vietnamese family with two children and an extended family who began visiting at 06:30. They were all extremenly friendly so I did enjoy meeting them. However, not being with my family was a bit odd. My advice is also to go to the bathroom before taking the overnight train. And if you are noise sensitive bring headphones. All in all though a good way to travel a longer distance in Vietnam.

train #SE19 Class II Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways, Jul 26, 2019
We were stupid enough to accidentely book the upper 4 hard beths. Below us, there were another 4 people sleeping. During the night there was a smell of smoking and at 5.30 we woke up with the smell of Vietnamees breakfast. Next time I make sure we book the soft beths. It made it worse that we were suffering from food poisening so we needed to use the dirty bathroom quite often. Lets say it was a trip to remember ;).
