9 Designers Created 9 Rooms At This Hotel In Amsterdam

 

Once a newspaper headquarters, the Volkshotel is now a 172 room hotel in Amsterdam that has rooms ranging from small and cozy to large and inviting. While the majority of the rooms are standard and conventional, nine of the rooms have been designed by architects and interior designers that each feature unique details and themes. Here’s a closer look at all nine rooms…


 

1. You Are Here

This room concept was created by Swaantje Nijkamp, Linde Ex and Ella Gil and designed by Elwin van Heyningen. The futuristic room lights up in a number of different ways ranging from a simple illuminated bed to a full on neon party. The room also features an interactive map on the wall that allows you to select a point on it and have footage from that place be projected onto your walls.

2. Cabin in the Woods

As its name suggests, this room, designed by Gabor Disberg, was created for those who love nature. The bed sits in a treehouse or cabin-like structure, there’s a hammock with cozy blankets perfect for hanging out in, and plants in the shower create the feeling of actually being in nature without the risk of bugs or bad weather.

3. Bathing Bikou

A Japanese tub sits in the middle of this room, designed by Hanna Maring, and is separated from the living and sleeping spaces only by a sliding pink screen. The open and minimal room encourages guests to relax and unwind in the spa-like space after long days out exploring the city.

4. Edmund

Designed by Jos Blom and Jasper Eustace, this room was created for those who love adventure. Plants are scattered throughout the room and the bathtub is found at the top of a narrow staircase designed to mimic the climb up a mountain. Even the shower contributes to the adventurous feel of the room as it recreates the feeling of standing under a waterfall.

5. Johnny Jukebox

This room was designed with music lovers in mind. Remco Gonggrijp used geometic shapes, included surround sound, as well as a collection of vinyl, CDs, and cassettes to allow guests to feel like DJs as they lay in bed, lounge in the bath, or dance around the room.

6. White Bike Room

In an attempt to include one of the most quintessentially Dutch elements, Thijs van Oostveen created a room that incorporates bike elements into every detail. The walls are covered in white bicycles, the bed is in a bakfiets (Dutch bike cart), and the room comes with two white bikes that you can use during your stay to explore the city.

7. Danny’s Room

Named after the deer that occupies the room, this eccentric room, designed by Eva van Halewijn, includes vintage Dutch elements and fun colors to create a space that’s both whimsical and welcoming – the bed is in fruit crate to help you wake up feeling “fresh and fruity.”

8. Cinema Boudoir

This room, designed by Maja Markovic, uses black, white, and red to create an intimate and cinematic atmosphere inspired by the Electric Cinema in London. You can connect your laptop to a device in the room and have your favorite movies projected onto the wall and watch them from anywhere in the room, including from the bathtub behind the king size bed.
