19th Century School Turned Teaching Hotel
Housed in a renovated 19th century secondary school since 2005, The College Hotel is a teaching hotel where students of various hotel management schools are trained to work in the hospitality industry, under the supervision of hotel professionals. In its opening year, The College Hotel won the prestigious Prix Villegiature for ‘Best Interior Design in a Hotel in Europe.’ The 40 rooms are individually designed and range from Luxury Rooms to Suites. The building, beautifully lit by night, accommodates a restaurant in the school’s former gym, where both men in suits discussing business and couples getting ready for another day of exploring Amsterdam can enjoy ‘international dishes, rooted in the Dutch culinary tradition.’
The College Hotel is located on the Roelof Hartplein in the traditionally chic Amsterdam Oud-Zuid district. The Museumplein, with the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Concertgebouw, can be reached by foot in only five minutes, the Vondelpark and exclusive shopping street P.C. Hooftstraat in ten. Want to know where the real Amsterdammers hang out? Check out the Albert Cuyp Market in the multi-cultural De Pijp district, a daytime market open six days a week since 1912. Make sure to pick up some fresh stroopwafels before visiting the nearby Heineken Experience or returning to The College Hotel to get a good night’s sleep.
