Volkshotel-Amsterdam-Eclectic Trends

Today we would love to take you on a trip to the Volkshotel Amsterdam. It’s not only the hotel that won us over with it’s contemporary look, but one of their gorgeous rooms, designed by the dutch product designer Hanna Maring. Hanna studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven, before she was asked to join the creative team for Volkshotel. The hotel has 172 rooms and only 9 of them are very unique from the rest. The ‚Bathing Bikou Room’ is one of the lucky rooms that was designed by various creatives like architects and interior designers.

Who doesn’t like to relax when traveling?

Most of the hotel rooms give too little attention to the bathrooms. Bathing Bikou gives importance to the bath and incorporates relaxing, sleeping and bathing in one space. – Volkshotel Amsterdam

The split-areas room is divided into different spots: a japanese bathtub in the middle of the room, the bed is behind a devision of colorful screens, these colors add a unique look to the room. Even though the bathtub is the centerpiece of this room, the main actors are the semi-transparent screens, designed to resemble the sky at different times of day. The dynamics of the concrete, the blonde plywood and the subtle coloring of the panels are a perfect mix-and-match and give this room an intimate feel.

They add interest to the room without being too loud, this fabulous split-level room emphasizes natural light through a neutral decor scheme punctuated by small pops of color. Would you like to stay at the ‚Bathing Bikou Room’  if you were in Amsterdam? We would, especially after the hotel says it’s the ‚perfect place to end a long day of exploring Amsterdam. Or maybe the room that makes you forget to go out sight seeing.‘ G, x
