Inspired perhaps by the success of Volkswagen, which sells millions of personal cars to a wide range of groups, Volkshotel is an open house for everyone.
From a typical tourist looking forward to smelling colorful tulips or freshly rolled joints to local entrepreneurs sitting down for a coffee hoping to change the world by typing quickly on their laptops. And like when buying from Volkswagen, a night at Volkshotel will not break the bank.
The "People's Hotel" is home to a wide range of creative rooms, suites, and shared workplaces with a café, restaurant, bar, and even a club. On top of it all (quite literally), a small spa on the rooftop - but we will get to this later.
Volkshotel is housed in the building where De Volkskrant newspaper was published for more than 42 years. After their relocation in 2007, Urban Resort Foundation turned this place into one of the largest creative grounds in the Netherlands.
From the moment you enter the building, you feel like you really are in Amsterdam. It's one of those unique hotels in Amsterdam where locals and tourists make a healthy mix rather than segregating into their own worlds.
