Is it a hotel, not a hotel? Or one of Amsterdam’s newest restaurants and bars? You decide!
Hotel Not Hotel is located in the west of Amsterdam, more precisely in the up-and-coming De Baarsjes neighborhood. Perhaps this is not the first place that comes to mind when looking for a hotel in Amsterdam. However, staying at Hotel Not Hotel in Amsterdam will ensure you have a true local experience. You will find Hotel Not Hotel in a residential area and it is the only hotel in that area.
This new and stylish hotel is located in a beautiful building with classic arches and industrial style. There are very special rooms about the hotel! All rooms have been individually created by Collaboration-O, a group of designers from the famous Eindhoven Design Academy.
Have you ever heard of a place where you can spend the night in an antique Amsterdam tramcar? Or in a classic Volkswagen minivan, Tintin’s red and white rocket or one of the other luxury cottages. That sounds really special, doesn’t it? The rooms are gorgeous, but since they are completely themed, the bathrooms are shared.
