Last month, a beautiful hotel opened its doors in the city center. The INK Hotel is located in a building that was formerly owned by HP De Tijd, a Dutch magazine. I must have crossed it a thousand times, but sometimes an invitation for a tour and cocktails is what it takes to actually notice it. The INK Hotel has turned into a beautiful lifestyle hotel and is quite possibly one of the best places to work and meet for coffee in this area. All of us online entrepreneurs are the PRESSROOM's - the name of the lobby and restaurant - target audience, so think copper tables, soft couches and sockets to plug in our laptops all over the place. Halleluja!

The cool history of the building plays a leading role in the design. Stories, ink and time are the foundations of the concept, that the Concrete architects got their hands dirty on. That is why you find pens and paper everywhere in the building, INK publishes its own newspaper, old copies of HP De Tijd are printed on the walls and ink blue is the predominant styling color. I particularly liked the copper detailing in the rooms as a contrast to wood and soft fabrics. It made me feel rich and a little like Gatsby. That is a good thing though. ;-)

When you are not staying in the hotel, the PRESSROOM is your place to go. Sipping on a coffee - or cocktail in the evening - the INK Hotel is a pretty nice place to hang with your friends, go out for dinner or get some work doneI will soon post an article about the PRESSROOM's menu. I have made my reservations  for dinner already. Whoop! 

It seems like I am developing a thing for hotel lobbies lately, as they often are so modern and well designed. This one plays with industrial luxury and elegantly mixes the indoor and outdoor spaces. It makes me feel like a true cosmopolitan. 

You find the INK Hotel on the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 67. So make sure to check it out when you are in the neighborhood. Happy Sunday!
