Dutch brand Hotel V has thrown open the doors to its latest outpost in Amsterdam – a former office building that’s been empty for over a decade.

Situated in the Amsteldorp neighbourhood, next to the river, the building was originally designed in the 1970s by Dutch architect Piet Zanstra – who’s also responsible for the enormous concrete ramps of the city’s Europarking car park.

Hotel V Fizeaustraat’s interiors hark back to the building’s heyday, with parquet floors and a green and brown colour palette that’s repeated across the hotel’s lobby and each of its 91 rooms.

Views across the water are framed by long green curtains, and guests can kick back in cane furniture or enjoy fur-draped seating in the hotel’s larger suites.

Well-placed plants, a lavish oversized chandelier and walls covered in geometric-patterned tapestries and tasselled hangings complete the retro styling.

The 1970s vibe continues in the hotel’s restaurant – described as a ‘culinary living lobby’ – which opened earlier in the year. It plans to blend dining with a programme of creative events.

Fizeaustraat is the third addition to the hotelier’s portfolio in Amsterdam.
