Extraordinary hotels - best choice for your unusual city break in Amsterdam

Hotel Droog The development of design hotel Hotel Droog was made by Renny Ramakers, head of famous boutique shop and show room. The hotel is located in the centre of Amsterdam close to Waterloo Square. This is a very unusual hotel that looks nothing like ordinary hotels we all know. Its design was developed by Droog studio that specializes on avant-garde projects. The area of 700 sq. metres has become home to several shops, exhibitions and a beauty salon, all of which can be freely visited by guests of the hotel. Travellers are also welcome to rest in a wonderful garden that was created by French designers Claude Pasquer and Corinne Dtroyat.
Hotel Filosof is a thematic hotel in the central district of Amsterdam. Conveniently located on a calm street not far away from Vondelpark, the hotel occupies several buildings constructed in the 19th century. It has only 38 guestrooms, each of which is dedicated to one great philosopher – Aristotle, Spinoza, Nietzsche, Karl Marx, Confucius and others. All the guestrooms are furnished with awesome elegance and reflex the main idea of the hotel. There are books and busts of famous scientists on shelves, and walls are decorated with paintings and quotes of great philosophers. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
Qbic Hotel WTC The next hotel that is worth mentioning is Qbic Hotel WTC , which was recently open in the building of World Trading Centre. Guestrooms of this hotel were developed and furnished by Dutch designers, who were inspired by the idea of a capsule hotel. In such a hotel, not much is needed for convenient rest. All guestrooms come with comfortable beds, a work desk and a shower. Every guestroom has a stylish lightning system that adds futurism to the design and makes guestrooms look like a spacecraft’s cabin. This hotel attracts travellers with its relatively low prices together with high level of comfort. There is no better proof of popularity than occupancy, and guestrooms at this hotel need to be booked in advance as during its first year of work the occupancy reached 99%.
Royal Palace, Westerkerk, National Monument, State Museum, Church of St. Nicholas, South Church, as well as many others, they all become the world's cultural heritage objects and remain as iconic monuments for Amsterdam … Open
Faralda Crane One more unique hotel can be found in the northern part of the IJ Bay. This is Faralda Crane that is located on the territory of a former dock yard. The hotel is located in quite an original place – an old dockside crane that previously belonged to NDSM Company. Nowadays, the rebuilt crane has become home to a local TV studio and a unique hotel with only three luxurious guestrooms made in fantasy style. Guests of the hotel can select guestrooms located at the height of 35, 40 or 45 metres. All the guestrooms feature magnificent panoramic views of the area. The hotel has become very popular with couples. The roof of the crane was rebuilt into a spacious terrace with Jacuzzi. Such an original hotel will also be liked by fans of bungee jumping.
Hotel de Windketel Travellers, who prefer to stay in unusual places, will simply fall in love with Hotel de Windketel . 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. The guestroom has everything needed for comfortable long-term stay in Amsterdam – a cozy bedroom, well-equipped kitchen and living room, and the ground level of the water tower was turned into a dining room.
