Yotel is preparing to open its first city centre hotel in mainland Europe on Monday.
Yotel Amsterdam Noord will have 202 “cabins” divided between doubles, triples and suites.
Located in the Buiksloterham neighbourhood beside the Tolhuis Canal, the hotel will have an all-day restaurant and public space called Komyuniti, which will serve large and small plates as well as drinks by Workshop Coffee.
Rooms will have beds with memory foam mattresses, amenities from Urban Skincare, rain showers, adjustable mood lighting, free wifi and HD Smart TVs with Chromecast.
The hotel will offer electric car charging points, a 24-hour gym, space for mooring boats and bike and e-bike rental. It says the property has “top notch sustainability credentials”, with a system to collect, filter and recycle water, and LED lights operated by sensors throughout.
It plans to host events including yoga, running clubs and outdoor film screenings.
“We opened one of our first hotels at Schiphol Airport, so it was only natural for us to return and introduce our city hotel concept to a nation who has always embraced us,” said Yotel CEO Hubert Viriot.
“Amsterdam Noord is a thriving cultural hub offering global travellers an exciting opportunity to discover an alternative side of the city.”
Yotel opened its first European city centre property in Edinburgh in August. Properties are due to open in Porto, Glasgow and London early next year.
The brand launched as the UK’s first ‘capsule hotel’ in 2007 in Gatwick airport, and has since grown to 30 properties operating or under development.
The Yotel group now has three brands: Yotel for city centre hotels; Yotel Air for landside and airside airport hotels, which it has recently opened at Singapore Changi and the new Istanbul Airport; and Yotelpad, its new extended-stay concept, set to make its European debut in Switzerland next year.
