Interaction with guests
There's always a member of staff around to answer any questions and give you some pointers on how to best explore Amsterdam. However, we have a very low key approach and only offer advice when asked.
Traditionally a blue collar neighbourhood just a stone's throw away from the heart of town, 'De Baarsjes', is what one calls 'on the rise'. All around us we see new initiatives popping up; from intimate coffee bars and restaurants, to cool boutiques with local designers. Please ask the staff for inside info on where to go!
Our house rules are the same as on any kindergarten playground: Have fun, respect the things and people around you, and don't smoke!
Hotel Not Hotel is a place in Amsterdam where a room isn’t just a room, but a work of art with its own creator, story, and identity. Most of them designed and specially made by Collaboration-O, a group of young designers that originated from the Eindhoven Design Academy, and one by Arno Coenen and his partner IRIS.
When you wake up, you step into an art-filled, exhibition-like space instead of an anonymous lobby or hallway. The entire hotel is one big living room, with cosy seating areas between the cottages. Combined with our luxury beds and other facilities, Hotel Not Hotel offers an unrivalled experience.
Besides all this, we feel that the value of a city lies in experiencing its local day-to-day life. As we are closely connected to Amsterdam and its numerous creative entrepreneurs, we know where to send you for a night on the town, a hidden culinary gem, or an upcoming artist’s exhibition.
The bar connected to Hotel Not Hotel is called Kevin Bacon. Just like the actor, the bar has zero pretention, it always delivers, and it makes sure everybody has a good time.
Kevin Bacon is not your typical hotel bar. It’s where locals get their morning coffee or a quick breakfast. It’s where friends meet for a cocktail or a beer before diving into the nightlife, and where hotel guests let their hair down after a long day in the city.
When the weather is good, the ‘Whitey the White’ terrace is sunny like a perfectly fried egg. The staff’s friendly attitude shines all year round.
