Amsterdam's Newest Hotel Will Be Millennial-Friendly and the Largest in Benelux

May 1, 2015 at 9:41 AM | by | ()

This is your Friday trivia question: What is Benelux?

Answer: It may sound like a butter-substitute spread, but it’s the abbreviation given to Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, three neighboring countries that aren’t always known for being the life and soul of the party (you might say boring, we would say underrated).

And Benelux has big news today: NH Hotels has announced plans to open the largest hotel in the region. Sadly for Belgium and Luxembourg, it’ll be in the most fun city of Benelux: Amsterdam.

Madrid-based NH Hoteles has just delivered its third child under the Nhow brand, the Nhow Rotterdam. It is distinctly different from its two siblings, Nhow Milan and Nhow Berlin… who can forget the gigantic pink musical note reception desk? Whereas the Milan hotel favored fashion, the Berlin destination focused on musicians, the Rotterdam hotel celebrates art and architecture. Ooh yeah.

Well, not a drop of pink in this new hotel and kudos to NH Hoteles for jumping right into Rotterdam’s growing modern architectural movement. Growing taller we might add. The 278-room hotel occupies 23 floors of a much larger development --- so large it is referred to as a vertical city. This project, De Rotterdam, was designed by award-winning Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and his firm OMA.

The “vertical city” that Nhow calls its Rotterdam home is oriented to offer great views of both the sunrise and sunset. As we have come to expect from any hotel in a skyscraper, the upper floors feature the restaurant, the bar and the killer views. The public areas throughout will showcase a rotating selection of artwork.

Berlin is known for their funky, eccentric, quirky and sometimes, just plain weird hotels but right now, we're crushing hard on this massive pink check-in desk at the Hotel nhow.

We found this snapshot in the HotelChatter Flickr Pool, taken by Ken E. Lee, one of our regular photo droppers. He mentioned that the desk is a work of DJ/designer Karim Rashid who has been populating design hotels around the world with his installations.

Indeed, the nhow, a "music and lifestyle" hotel, was touched by Rashid throughout from the lobby spaces to the guest rooms. Which is fitting considering that Rashid has a musical background as well. Here's some more on the concept of this nhow hotel (there's another one in Milan):

Nhow Hotel Keeps Boutique Trend Alive

And you thought there was a boutique hotel backlash. The NHow Milano begs to differ. A spin-off of the European chain NH Hoteles, it's got the mandatory sleek furniture, sexy artwork and post-industrial neighborhood location. And coming soon is the spa, which the hotel says will

cut guests off from their daily environment opening up their minds so that they can discover a fundamental sense of peace and positive energy.

Tré new age. In fact, looks like the hotel staff may have gotten into the body scrubs and aromatherapy oils a little early:

The staff are a real pleasure too. Smily faces, welcoming and very helpful, discreet. Yes, OK, perhaps a little more relaxed and easy going than what you would usually find in a big city, but hey, we are in Italy!
