We will be in Budapest in October and want to go to Vienna for a few days. We were seriously considering taking the bus (Volanbusz) because its so cheap and seems to take the same amount of time as the train, but after looking around a little bit I am worried that it would be not fun to take the bus. My questions are:
1. Is there THAT much of a difference between comfort level/cleanliness between the bus and the train?
2. Is it worth it to save some money and take the bus or is it really better to pay a little extra for the train.
My thought was that I have taken the train before in Europe, from Paris to Madrid over night, and I couldnt imagine that a bus would be that much different, but thought I would see if anyone had actually done it and what their thoughts were.
