Your own tram trolley in Hotel not Hotel Amsterdam
Sleeping in the cosiest rooms at Hotel not Hotel
The hotel scene in Amsterdam is in full movement! Hotel Not Hotel is a new hotel in Amsterdam West, at the Witte de Withstraat. The budget design hotel only has a few rooms that are all super small, but very unique. How about a night sleeping in a tram, in the Spanish Casa No Casa or in a secret room behind a bookcase? It is all possible at the Hotel Not Hotel.
The rooms at HNH sit inside the building’s superstructure like stand-alone cottages, and bear almost no relation to each other in their layouts or furnishings. Take for example the little semi-detached rooms that make up the Crisis Free Zone. One red, one blue, both bedecked in busy wallpaper, enough room for the bed and nothing else, and fronted by a wonderful carved wooden archway of hearts and skulls, the facade of the rooms themselves equally ornate with an almost church-like window/steeple arrangement. Then there’s the Crow’s Nest, which offers an unusual vantage point of the rest of the hotel through its scaffolding platform on the room’s roof. A secret room hidden behind a bookcase, another fashioned from an antique tram trolley… what will you discover next?
The name already indicates that they are more than just a hotel. “Events, birthdays, chartering the whole hotel for a party. But just for a drink and a nice cheese board at the bar or a nice lunch. In good weather you sit comfortably on the terrace, if you happen to be in the neighbourhood. Anything is possible, everyone is welcome is their message. “
