The Holiday Inn Zurich is relatively close to the train station, tram and bus stations. It is extremely easy to move to the historic centre and the airport. The surroundings of the near train station
have several restaurants, supermarkets and shops. Breakfast was good, plentiful and with good variety. The room was spacious and well-distributed, with an excellent desk and a good chair. The closet was very good, with shelves, hangers and an excellent safe that fit the computer. The bathroom has a good size and layout, and is well-lit, with easy water temperature control in the shower and a hairdryer. The mechanically controlled blinds let in plenty of natural light, without being intrusive, as there were thin white curtains. When closed, the blinds darkened the room very well.
Disliked · The lighting from the lamps in the bedroom is not good at night, as it makes the bedroom dark, even if the lamps on the bedsides and on the desk are good. It must be troublesome to pack without natural light. The shower box cannot be closed (!), which makes the shower quite uncomfortable: if you are not careful, the bathroom easily gets wet. There is no hygienic shower beside the toilet, which would help the people who cannot or should not use toilet paper. The space for the suitcase does not fit a suitcase that is not a handbag, as a larger suitcase would block the door - if the space were in reverse position in relation to the closet, it would be much more satisfactory. And the air conditioning has a limit of up to - 5°C in relation to the ambient temperature. If someday global warming leads to higher summer temperatures, such as 40 °C, there will be very uncomfortable room temperatures. It is not the hotel's fault, as it appears to be local law, but this limit is not warned at the time of booking. [Menos]
