Un agent était à la gare et nous a indiqué quel wagon prendre. Wagon ne correspond pas à ce qu’il y a sur les images. Wagon en bois à l’ancienne mais propre. 4 petites bouteilles d’eau et l’équivalent de kit kat, prévoyez donc de quoi manger au cas d’une petite faim. Il ne faut pas avoir le sommeil léger car le train est tout sauf sans secousse et on ressens bien les rails. Malgré tout bien arrivé à Sapa à l’heure même si un peu endormi.

Nous sommes un couple de près de 70 ans chacun et nous avons effectué le trajet Hanoi-Hue en train de 4 couchettes. Bien que avons été un peu secoues, nous avons relativement bien dormi (oreiller confortable). Nous avons bénéficié d'un plateau avec eau, bananes, biscuits. Je recommande ce voyage.

It was easy to exchange voucher for ticket at da nang station, which gives coach and cabin number. The trip to Saigon went well. The standard didn't quite meet that of Laman Express, but it also wasn't as expensive as Laman. It was great to view vietnamese countryside along the way.

No Violette carriage from Da Nang to ho chi Minh city. So put in 1st class ac. Bed clothes strewn across carriage from previous occupants. Toilet unusable if you need to sit. Thankfully I didn't. Best thing were the train staff. Lovely helpful people. Oh did I mention sharing my bed with 3 cockroaches?

I had come to Vietnam to travel the country by train and was not expecting high standards of any type, The trains and station facilities are very basic and there is a definite lack of information for tourists, no help from staff at station not a word then again nobody in this country seems to want to engage with tourists or not me at least ??? I have enjoyed my train journeys and I’ve seen some fantastic scenery along the way and would recommend you for yourself however just don’t expect high standards that you may be used too in your own country. I paid for violette train SE3 which should have had luxury compartments as in the description and cost was far higher than standard price ??? Apparently this was the only ticket available so I had no choice, standard is always good enough for me. There was a woman sitting at a small desk at the station where I swapped my voucher and was given a ticket for getting through the automatic barriers. I boarded at Danang and my cabin was very dirty from previous occupants from Hanoi to Danang, there was lots of insects crawling on the walls, the bedding had been used already and just simply folded for me to reuse. I quickly realised that my compartment was no different to any other compartment on the train regardless of ticket type you paid for so makes me wonder why I had to pay far more for the same thing ? I arrived at Nah Trang 20 minutes late, not bad for over 9 hour journey. Go for it and give it a try but don’t expect too much, certainly don’t expect a Vietnamese to acknowledge you or speak to you, maybe push you out the way, give you dirty looks, run off with your change !

Per 60 euro mi aspettavo servizio diverso, invece le cuccette del treno erano tutte uguali. Se quello era un letto morbido poi... era semirigido diciamo. L'unica cosa positiva è che ti forniscono da bere e da mangiare qualche snack.

Following the instructions in the voucher, we approached the coach we had been assigned. However, we were not allowed to get on the train because we had not exchanged the voucher for a ticket and, after 15-20 minutes, we were asked to get on a standard coach which did not correspond to the VIP coah we had paid for. Very disappointed.

We travelled from Danang to Saigon on VIP TICKETS. The voucher that we had printed stated the carriage number but had no cabin number. It stated that on this trip, you showed the voucher as you boarded. Don’t do this! Ensure you know your cabin number before. We tried to get on our stated coach number (11a)for train SE 1 but were pointed in the direction of another coach. Now slightly panicked with lots of luggage in 38 degree heat, we rushed to coach 9 and boarded. We still didn’t know cabin number! Luckily the guard phoned through our booking number and found out. Unfortunately, we had been put in first class cabin, not VIP. We had the free drinks etc but had to share with a stranger. We payed £200 for three people and therefore expected to have the cabin to ourselves. The VIP cabins had all been taken by a tour company. The rest of the trip was as expected - beds a bit hard, bumpy , noisy ride, not much sleep, air con stopped for a while so everyone sweating (sorted quickly once we complained). The other difference between our coach and the VIP coach was the toilets. They had loo paper and western toilets, we had squat toilets. However, at least we could wander into the VIP cabin and use theirs!

A good way to travel longer distances. With our family we had a 4 person sleeping room. That was great. The train was clean, only the toilets not. But it as about you could expect in a full train. The continuering annoncements on every stations could better be skipped. Food was good and for a good price. Booking in avance was easy. We also tried to book from Da Nang to Hue, but all beds we occupied. So make your reservation as soon as possible.

When I tried to pay online my bank tagged this as a possible fraudulent site, so that was a pain getting that sorted, but once I had my ticket, it was an easy process. Counter to exchange your voucher for a ticket was well displayed once you enter Hanoi Station and there were clear instructions provided prior. I would have liked the opportunity to select my bunk, as I was on the top and apart from it being an acrobatic feat to get up there, your view is very limited. I ended up in the dining car for breakfast and had a good view from there. Bunks were hard, certainly not soft as advertised. But all in all a great experience.

We had a ticket, but the coach nummer was not mentioned. So, very confusing by which coach nummer we need to check in. The train is ok. Airco on the train to hot or to cold (you can not set the temperature in each separate cabin). Next time I would take the plane, but the kids loved the train

We booked the SE3 train from Hanoi to Danang. We booked 2 berths, aware that we could be sharing our room, we had read about roommates who weren’t so good and recently were told of an unpleasant experience, yes it’s a gamble. We were fortunate to have a lovely young couple from our own country. Clean sheets and duvets/pillows. Bananas, a chocolate bar, water and hand wipes were provided. Just as I had read about. The toilet was ok, I have seen worse in other other country’s, yes it’s small, yes it’s old, the water level is quite high so that can splash about, we took our own toilet paper but there was some provided. Yes the train goes clickity clack, we had ear plugs and that helped, all 4 of us thought we had a reasonable sleep. There was a lady with a food trolley selling drinks and snacks. Ticketing was easy, we handed our voucher over and our carriage and bed numbers got written on it. The train left on time but arrived 30 min late. We had a good experience, as I had hoped from reading other positive reviews.

Very nice train, clean, with helpful staff that tells you when it's your stop. The train arrived at its destinatioon only 15 minutes later than planned, so overall pretty punctual. Check-in procedure was very nice, I didnt even have to wait in line in Hanoi station (but then again I got there well in advance). You get food on the train, but it's only 1 banana and 1 cookie so make sure you take something for yourself as well. Much less noisy and uncomfortable than the 'regular' sleeper trains by Vietnam Railways. I recommend!

The trip was well organised and easy to exchange vouchers. Clear and accurate information. The only reason I’m giving a 4 is because I was in a top bunk on the train - close to the air con (which is centrally controlled) and I was freezing all night despite wearing several layers. Not 12go Asia’s fault but the train company won’t ask for feedback so have to write it here.

Boarding was very quick and smooth and the train left on time. Like other travellers have commented the train was very noisy and rattled and bumped its way to Da Nang where we departed for Hoi An. Shared the cabin with a number of insects and a tiny mouse who was intent on eating our complimentary chocolate bar which he had half achieved by the time we got off. It was an experience but an ok one!

You know, lots of negative comments on here and I’m reading some validity in many, but I think some expectations might have been off. Did Hanoi to Denang sleeper with hubby and two sons, so had a cabin to ourselves, which I think makes a HUGE difference. You can’t control for bunk mates. Bedding clean but not sparkling white. Toilets sloshed a bit yup. It’s a wobbly train. We brought wipes and toilet paper and were prepared for that. The boys LOVED the experience and the views for the last couple hours of the trip were fascinating. Boarding the train in Hanoi was fine. Had arranged for a driver with the hotel at the small Denang station, so the logistics worked. Really glad we did it. A fun part of the trip. Would I do it agaiin? Since flying is similar price and so much quicker probably not, but really am glad we did it for this leg. Bring your own food. Particularly breakfast.

The booking process was efficient. We were shown to our carriage and compartment efficiently. The bunks were hard however and this should not be called a soft sleeper! We suspect ours was not a Violets coach. but a Vietnam Railways coach. However it got us to our destination in Hue a a reasonable cost.

Changing vouchers for tickets and boarding the train was well organised. The train itself was way below the standard we were advised of and the standard shown on the Internet. We booked January 8 for our March 22 2019 train trip and we were told we could not book the Livitrans train but 12go would book our sleeper on Violette train as it was the same as Livitrans trains. We did enjoy the experience, must try it once. Be aware of the guy offering wine in the evening and coffee in the mornings as you assume it is part of the service and after you accept he will advise you of the payment. He also offered us our own cabin for an extra payment but we did not accept the offer. To summaries the trip, we enjoyed the experience but felt let down by what we were given. Carriage 12A was well below the standard of the carriages before us ( eg carriages 9 to 12). The costs we payed should relate to the standard of the carriage and in this case it did not.

Given the extra cost, I wouldn’t was my money on using one of these private carriers in the future. Just go with the locals still in a soft sleeper. 12go Asia provided very clear specific instructions allowing us to easily redeem our tickets using the voucher.

Après avoir été très inquiète vu certains avis extrêmement négatifs de ce voyage, je tiens à nuancer les propos suite à mon expérience. Déjà la communication a été plutôt fluide en gare de nha trang et le train n'a eu que 20min de retard. Certes les draps n'étaient pas propres et le lit dur mais en prévoyant notre nuit cela a globalement été. nous avions prévu des vêtements longs sur nos bras et jambes, recouvert l'oreiller avec un de nos tshirt, prévu des épaisseurs pour pouvoir jouer avec le chaud froid de la clim et du papier toilette au cas où... Pas de souris ou de cafards n'ont croisé notre chemin donc rien que pour ça je suis heureuse ! Clairement ce n'est pas un voyage très fluide mais suffisant vu nos attentes.

It was a big hassle to find our beds as the wrong coach was indicated and people at the train station in Danang where incapable of printing us proper tickets indicating the coach and bed numbers. For a VIP train the room was very dirty as were the toilets. It is not worth spending the extra money for the Violet train. Felt a bit like a scam! Save the money just buy regular tickets for 4 bed soft coach. Should be cheaper!

All in all a good experience no problem exchanging voucher for boarding card train was on time and the cabins were clean a lot better than I had been led to believe. Bed was a little hard but I’ve slept in worse hotel rooms. 1st time I’ve slept on a train so wasn’t the best nights sleep but still got a good few hours. Took my own food but there is a trolley that comes round with some snacks. Plenty of hot water available for pot noodles. Toilet on our coach was blocked and almost overflowing but the next one was working fine. If you want to sit down make sure you take a seat cover and take some toilet paper with you. The views between Hue and Danang are breathtaking! I’d advise any one to to do this just be prepared and you won’t be disappointed

The Noise from the broken (stuck open) doors between carriages was annoying. Beds were comfy on this service, but l needed my own blanket as the 1 sheet provided was not enough for the cold aircon

The boarding process was fine. The toilets were blocked and disgusting. The beds were uncomfortable because the mattresses were too thin and, in consequence, we could feel every bump on the train track. Drunken Germans in another couchette made a lot of noise until late at night. Definitely not a first class experience

Conductors smoked all night next door to our room and smoke came in through air vent. We had booked non smoking. We were not assigned to the berths that we had booked.

Train departed and arrived on time. Service at Hanoi station was good. Berth was comfortable. But not very clean, there was a mouse running around.

Got us from Hanoi to Hue. 12go Asia booking/instructions were great. As for Violette "superior service" not sure what that was as never saw a sole.....maybe the small bottle of water?...
