Hi guys! So here’s some big news I’ve hidden from the blog. I’ve sold my apartment and I’m moving….to Berlin. Yup! I’m taking a huge leap of faith and following my dreams (I dream of schnitzel apparently?). Anyways, I’m still here blogging but there are obviously some BIG changes afoot. I’m not sure how much I’ll be around over the next little while. But I’d really love for you all to join me on this next adventure. Love & light xx

Inntel Zaandam Exterior

Inntel Zaandam Lobby

It’s not often you come across a building this striking – much less one that is also a hotel. This one is an architectural breath of fresh air: both reverent and innovative, eye catching and classic. The Inntel Zaandam is seemingly 12-storeys of traditional houses stacked upon on another. The hotel is a part of a larger plan to create a newly revamped city center and it seems to be working. The facade does not seem out of place along the Zaanstad skyline. Instead it provides a welcome focal point while fully retaining a sense of history.

Inntel Zaandam Loft Room

Inntel Zaandam Living Room

As madcap the exterior suggests, the building was created upon a home away from home concept. The 160 guest rooms reflect this by giving everyone a tiny house rather than the traditional suites. But concrete floors and sharply contemporary bathrooms show the influence of more popular Dutch design sensibilities. Photography of local scenes and products has been blown-up and serves as huge graphic wallpapers. Rooms offer open concept bathrooms, some with rain shower heads and some with jacuzzi baths, as well as free wifi and flatscreen TVs.

The hotel also offers a bar and restaurant as well as a swimming pool,and wellness centre with both a Finnish sauna and a Turkish bath. Zaandam is a bit far removed from the center of Amsterdam but the hotel offers a handy and quiet place to stay for a night or two.
