Mediamatic is a cultural institution. We are interested in cultural developments that foster new technologies, and new technologies that spur cultural developments.
We made a booking 2 days before we arrived and with a very late night check in, but Mascha was very happy to let us stay. Very happy and thankful she did. This place is an amazing experience! We arrived at 11.30pm and were meet by a guy called Tim who was having a few drinks for a leaving do for one of the Mediamatic designers. He gave us a beer and a long tour of warehouse and what Mediamatic was about / did. The bed was upstairs in a massive open space next to a few on going projects -there is a massive 60 ft swing! We had a great sleep and the breakfast they gave us was excellent, had a glass of amazing orange juice. I wish there was more beds like this on Airbnb, I would pick this over a hotel, hostel or normal night.
Spending the weekend at the Mediamatic Headquarters was a unique experience. Looked a bit like living in one of the pavillions of the Biennale of Venice. Mascha was nice and helpful.
Ideal for adventurous short stays (the camping shower is not very comfortable :)!!!
Mascha was lovely and so was the space. Experience wise it was 100% but if you're looking for a normal staying experience this isn't for you. The bed is in the middle of the downstairs bit of the warehouse and the open plan office is right next to the bed. So once in a while even out of business hours (we were never in the building during office hours) someone might walk by you sleeping or lounging in the space which is only covered by sheer curtains. The shower is a jug with a spray hose on it, which was fine but we forgot I ask where to turn on the lights so after sun down we were pretty much in all darkness. The area is super cool and a great alternative to the very touristic city center. Really cool bar just next to warehouse.
Mediamatic is an interesting collaboration of artists and activities and events and it was a very different experience staying here for 3 nights. If you're interested in having an 'experience' rather than just accommodation than this is the right place as there are interesting things happening all the time. Lillian and staff went out of their way to make sure my stay was comfortable. The area is very industrial but there are people around all the time so I didn't feel at all isolated. A unique experience.
It was an interesting stay in Amsterdam. It's for people that a round bed in a hall isn't a problem. :) the breakfast was excellent.
Lilian was a great host and I really loved meeting the Mediamatic artist team. The Mediamatic warehouse space is full of interesting projects and people to talk to about them. The neighborhood was very central and easy to explore the city bike from. The breakfast was amazing!
funny and adventurous. The experience is good if it is what you are expecting : an adventurous night with limited confort. I went there as part of a european adventurous trip and the experience fits with the overall concept ;-). Lillian and her team was very helpfull and she waited me even if I was very late.
If u are looking for something different to stay, this is the place!. Me and a friend were the first to be here. The experience is unique!!. Sleep in an old factory with the bedroom in an open space, great decoration and style. All the staff were very kind with us, especialy Andrea, the chef, who made for us a very nice breakfast!!.
Also you can join differents workshops that are happening at the place.
Thank you so much to the Mediamatic for that great experience.
All the best for the future!.
Hopefuly see you again!.
