“Business trip to Eindhoven”
Just got back from Eindhoven in the Netherlands. Another business trip.
My agent booked the Holiday Inn in Eindhoven as it was located nearby the meeting location.
As you setup into the hotel the lobby area looked nice, nothing special but OK. The people at the reception was very nice and helpful and always tried to help you after any questions one asked.
I got a room on the second floor (207). The room as very clean and spacious. The interior was a bit worn out, especially the bathroom but very clean. One could see that this hotel has been there several years. Anyway, it was a fine room for a short stay.
I am very picky on the fitness centers as I train regularly regardless where I am. The gym had some Life Fitness cardio machines, OK with that. There were only a vertical dumbbell rack up to 10kilos, this was a very light set....not ideal for those lifting heavy like myself.
There is a bar and a "Brasserie" nearby the hotel lobby. Again people at the bar and serving the food were very nice. Breakfast was ok, I liked the hot-plate where one could fry eggs by yourself. It was possible to order food for Lunch and Dinner at the bar, the menu was quite limited, food ok but nothing special. Better to go out to the city center just 5 minutes walk.
Eindhoven seems to be an University town with a large research center and many students around. Looking at the tourist guide there seems to be interesting places to visit, just did not have the time, maybe next time. By the way they had free Wifi and always welcome service (all hotels shall have free Internet).
