Used this Gym twice while in Switzerland. Located inside a large department store but easy to find and open 7 days a week. I used a voucher from my hotel and did not have any issues. I had to pay 1 CHF to use the lock (probably did not even need one) and also had to leave my driver's license.... More

I visited this place as a guest of a friend of mine, who lives in Zurich. We went in the after work hours for a bodypump training together. The gym delivers the usual Holmes Place quality, but beware that it can get really full in peak hours, especially on a beloved course like bodypump. If you have time and if... More

I just fall in love with the Kangoo Jumps classes in Holmes.\ It is so energetic, I am getting closer to my old nice shape week by week, and it is sooo much fun.

I understand why Holmes Place receives some negative points, as at the beginning, I was not very impressed by the non-standard pricing scheme they tried to run without transparency. However, after exploring the city around a bit and tried out several other options, I decide to use Holmes place, not only for its central location and terrace, but also for... More

The Spa Area smells like an animal zoo - absolutely disgusting. Faucets and furniture are broken and badly maintained. The team hates to work there - as customer, that can be felt every second of the stay. I have never seen a place that claims to be exclusive - international - high end and in fact is nothing but miserable.

- Really awful. - Every member pays a different fee for the exact same thing, and it all depends on the membership consultant you get and what they think you can afford. - I signed up for a premium membership that includes spa access; only to find that facilities are sometimes broken, there are insufficient lockers (and I was asked...

Cold water Jacuzzi, air temperature too cold and nothing special compared to other places. Small and overpriced. Staff were fine. Once was enough.

I do not go to spas often, particularly in Switzerland where doing can significantly lighten your wallet. So, when I do make that annual trip, I like to pick a spa with some personality. A bit of panache, even. Classy bevvies and cute snacks in a darkened relaxing room are particularly welcome. While this spa does have an attractive decor,... More

Badly maintained equipment; even new spinning bikes are worse than average. Really poor air conditioning in class rooms makes you sick when boosting your heart rate. Profits from reputation due to good location and brand name, but hardly for impeccable services.

The way they advertise it (and what they charge you for) you would think the spa area ought to be large - it's basically a small steam bath, two saunas and a small jacuzzi.
