Hotel de Hallen
Hotel de Hallen is a classy urban home away from home that recently opened in early 2013 as the 4th property of Vondel Hotels owned by Arjen van den Hof. Architect Andre Van Stigt brilliantly restored the historic building that used to be a tram stop and its original glass ceilings to its former glory. Designer furnishings like Thomas Bentzen tables, Jacobsen Egg chairs, mismatched sofas, steel works, and exposed brick walls create a retro cool ambiance.
All 55 simple and stylish rooms are arranged around a central corridor where people can look down and see the goings on in the lobby and lounge. Rooms have large tubs (unusual for Western European city hotels) and ultra-comfy eco-friendly Cocomat beddings. The hotel restaurant – Remenise 47 serves upscale pub fare which guests may choose to enjoy within the restaurant, at the bar, the outdoor café, the internet garden, or in the comfort of their own rooms. There is no pool, spa or gym, but visitors are sure to have a wonderful time exploring the nearby museum district, fashion district, and Jordaan district where the latest and trendiest shops and restaurants are popping up like mushrooms of late.
