Re: Buying a dream apartment without a lift?

View Post
The last place we lived in had a lift.

We used it when we moved in and again when we moved out.

I almost always take the stairs in hotels. Free exercise - what's not to like?

What is maddening is that a few hotels I have used in the U.S. have stairs that miss the ground floor entirely and stop one floor below that in a gated and locked outside area below the ground floor.
The stairs are basically for emergency use as an exit only.
Prime Tower in Zurich has lifts that only go to certain floors, you have to change to get to others. Idea being to spread the load on the lifts (maybe?), but then should have adjusted it so the linked floors matched the floors used by specific tenants, but they don't.

One of the office buildings in Canary Wharf had stairs which go to odd floors or even floors; no idea why, it's basically just the cost of a door on each floor, but it just meant that everyone used the "all floors" stair and the others were empty.
