This iconic building houses rooms in all shapes and sizes, and literally every room is unique. When you make a reservation, the room type is your choice, but the exact room you will be allocated to is a surprise. Each room has been individually designed in a different design concept but local and iconic artists. Prepare to be blown away.
Architect Evert Breman designed this eclectic building, in which all kinds of architectural styles are mixed. The symmetrical building served primarily as a hotel for emigrants. Large groups of (Eastern) Europeans departed from the Royal Lloyd Hotel onwards to South America. When, in 1935, the Royal Lloyd went bankrupt, the building was taken into use by the Municipality of Amsterdam. After this, the building’s story becomes a little more interesting, once a shelter for refugees, a German prison, house of detention (for adults and later also for minors) and in the 90's, squat used as artists studio’s.
