Dutch Design (3): Lute Suites to open 13nd January, 2005

Lute Suites
After Haagsche Suites (Suites of The Hague) that opened 29th September 2002 and after Maison le Dragon in Bruges, we now see a new Dutch small all suite hotel initiative in Ouderkerk a/d Amstel, just outside of Amsterdam. Ouderkerk is boarding on the small Amstel river from which Amsterdam derived its name: The Dam in the Amstel.

Lute Suites is developed by Peter Lute, from Restaurant and Marcel Wanders of Marcel Wanders Studio

Seven picturesque small houses for rent as suites with or without breakfast, with or without personal shopper, with or without dinner in either the restaurant or served in your suite. No lobby, but a mini reception desk, because it is not supposed to be a hotel. More suites to follow in Amsterdam.

I like the idea and the design, but not the Lute website design, because of its cumbersome accessibility.

Update: Discovered the term Notel, created the Notel category and added this post to it.

The College Hotel is being created by a local hospitality school in the Amsterdam Musea Area. It is expected to open officially on December 22, 2004. Not only a hotel in an old school, but also a hotel that will serve for the students of the hospitality school as practice on the job. It will be operated by the Spanish Stein Hotels Group.
