  • Expensive Hotel Stay - Holiday Inn

    I stayed at the Holiday Inn, Eindhoven. They ripped me off in a large way!!!! I must not have booked the right kind of room, but I'm sure I would have told them there was only one person staying in the room. As I look at the website now, it looks like they gave me the King sized room. Be careful, as people might take advantage of you!From now on I...

Eindhoven What to Pack

  • aspierings's Profile Photo

    by aspierings Written Sep 12, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Just bring some Euros € (We DO have several ATMs but most of them are generally out of order).
    Everything else you need can be bought in Nuenen.
    (Maybe then eventually the City Council can convert their debts into profits)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Always bring an umbrella. You never know?!
    Even when there isn't a cloud in the sky: Birds are everywhere! Especially in the Main Park. I got hit twice in one hour!!
