0.31km from Soup en Zo (Spiegel)When I arrived at the hotel I was told, I would have booked a room without a window. I could not believe it and I rummaged for my records and, indeed, Booking.com confirmed to me to book a room without a window. So, I could have known, if I had read the confirmation exactly. But honestly, when you book a room, you assume that it has a window, right at the same time you do not question that it has no walls or furniture. It would not occur to any reasonable person to look for or doubt such criteria. There is legislation that requires, at least in Europe, that people's lounges be naturally exposed and that the law requires that the windows be at least 10 or 12% of the floor area. Even prison cells need to have daylight, and in animal law, natural light is provided in lounges. As I write, I am in this storage room, the air conditioning is turned off, as I assumed that their sounds prevented me from sleeping. In half asleep I have calculated how long a person can survive if there is no air supply. Still half asleep, I began to calculate the cubic meters of space and the amount of air a person consumes in an hour, I wanted to know how many hours I can survive in this room. There are about 30 m3 of air a human needs in one hour. I calculated that my room has about 40 m3, which means that the air is used up after about 5/4 hours. An overwhelming feeling came over me and I thought that I had slept for 3 hours and I ran out of bed and pressed the air conditioning, because now I was panicked and thought that this room will become a dying room. The Dream Hotel actually becomes a nightmare hotel. The price for this room is 155.77 euros per night. If you say, Zurich is expensive, but so I can live in Zurich in a new Boutiqhotel with balcony, large windows, small kitchen for 80 to 90 Euros per night. So literally at half price. It is interesting that Geneva and Zurich rank in the cost index as the most expensive cities in the world and Amsterdam takes 11th place. I think after my experience it should be the other way round.
