An old tram depot from 1901 has been transformed into an urban vintage design hotel, with cosy rooms, beautiful bathrooms & an excellent restaurant. The design is by André van der Stigt, who also did the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam. What’s better than a sleepover in a pretty design hotel in your own hometown?!
The 55 rooms are located on two floors on both sides of the light lobby. Some of the rooms don’t have windows, but we kinda liked it, it felt cosy! The bathrooms are spacious & some of them have a huge tub! There are coffee & tea facilities in your room, so after a refreshing morning shower, you can enjoy a cup, before heading for breakfast at Remise47.
There are expositions in the hotel that change every month, like photo & fashion expos.
Breakfast at Remise47 is a party! Pick your favorites from the buffet or order something off of the menu. I loved the croissants, fresh juices & scrambled eggs!
In this area of Amsterdam you find a lot of excellent restaurants & bars. My favorites are Panache, Bar Brouw, the Spaghetteria & Bar Spek, all within walking distance of Hotel de Hallen. The Food Hallen nextdoor are a must visit too! It can get very crowded in here, so go on a weekday. For a movie you simply open another door to the Film Hallen!
We were pleasantly surprised by our dinner at Remise47! The Chef’s Surprise Menu is highly recommended! I looooooved the fried mussels with mango sorbet & the champagne cheesecake…Yummm!! For a full post about our dinner click HERE!
Hotel de Hallen en Remise47 are great hangout spots for locals too! Enjoy a good cocktail & and a tasty dinner. Loved it.
