Is Hotel Not Hotel a hotel? Or is it one of Amsterdam’s newest restaurant and bar hot spots? You decide! Hotel Not Hotel is located in Amsterdam West, more specificly in the upcoming neighbourhood De Baarsjes. Maybe it’s not the first location you would think of when looking for a hotel in Amsterdam. However, staying at Hotel Not Hotel in Amsterdam will assure that you have a true local experience. You’ll find Hotel Not Hotel in a residential neighborhood, and it’s the only hotel in that area. This new and trendy hotel is located in a beautiful building with classical arches and an industrial finish. Very special about the hotel are the rooms! All the rooms are 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 tram cart? 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 spectacular, but since they’re fully aimed at a theme, the bathroom is shared.
