This hotel is located in an old water tower that was saved only thanks to efforts of local people. The hotel is located not far away from an old gas factory. Currently, this factory is a part of Westergasfabriek. The small octagonal water tower was built yet in 1897. With time, the tower was not used for its original purpose anymore and was on the verge of destruction. Several local people, who lived in neighbor houses, decided to save the historic building and open an original designer made guestroom in the tower.
