Hotels have made a comeback as venues for meetings and events. Especially in Amsterdam, hotels have recently developed quickly into hotspots of the city where locals, tourists and business travellers alike get together. With trendy restaurants and bars, atmospheric lounges and surprising event spaces, hotels are perfect places for meetings and events. We visited five of the most interesting design hotels in Amsterdam!


Room Mate Aitana is a paragon of a modern design hotel in the centre of Amsterdam. The hotel is set in a spectacular building with a striking glass façade, located on the artificial island of IJDock next to Central Station. The transparent exterior provides a lot of light and a beautiful view over the IJ. The hotel has 285 hotel rooms and suites. The Aitana Lounge Bar is the perfect place for drinks or presentations. In addition, there are eight modern meeting rooms with space for groups up to 200 people. Each meeting room features large windows, a modern interior and the latest AV technologies.


Lloyd Hotel is a quirky design hotel set in an iconic building. There’s no such thing as ‘standard’ here: every space is unique and flexible. Are you going for a meeting in the historic space ‘The Office’ in authentic 20s style, a room with piano decorated by Joep van Lieshout, or an event on the platforms above the restaurant, designed by MVRDV? What all rooms have in common here is free high-speed Wi-Fi and employees who think along with you: anything is possible at the Lloyd Hotel! With 117 hotel rooms and a great location along the IJ, Lloyd is the ideal base from which to explore Amsterdam.


QO is a new lifestyle hotel, with passion for sustainability and the belief that travel should be a pleasure. Every aspect of QO Amsterdam is designed to create a positive impact on the world, all while making the experience as pleasant as possible for its guests. The moving façade that automatically adapts to the weather conditions and guests is spectacular. In the restaurant you can enjoy vegetables grown in a rooftop greenhouse. The inspiring meeting rooms are located on a bustling event floor. Because of the innovative sustainable applications alone, Qo is a must see!


One of the most surprising hotels in Amsterdam is Zoku. Step into the elevator from the busy Weesperstraat to get out of a greenhouse on top of the roof. Not downstairs but here, high above the city, is Zoku’s atmospheric lounge. Enjoy the view on one of the roof terraces, but definitely book one of the rooms for meetings and events here. The meeting rooms are also a little different: how about a meeting room with a twister carpet for some necessary movement? Or a room with super comfortable sofas and a Wii U? Design was rarely so inspiring!


A hotel with an unprecedented green and sustainable design, in a beautiful place: Hotel Jakarta Amsterdam is impressive even to the most spoiled hotel visitor. Outside, the hotel has a beautiful view over the IJ. Inside it’s open, bright and green. The high atrium with a roofed subtropical garden not only provides beautiful photos for Instagram – it’s a surprisingly exotic backdrop for meetings and events. The three flexible meeting rooms can be linked together to make one large event space of 245 m2 and, like the rest of the hotel, they’re decorated in a beautiful sustainable-modern style.
