Dutch Design (4): More news from the College Hotel

college hotel

Opening of the Amsterdam College Hotel is now scheduled for March 1, 2005.

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.

Ruin….Just 2 Suites

Janneke and Peter Schoenmaker had set up and sold Spaarne 8, a two suites hotel in Haarlem, The Netherlands. The new owner discontinued the operation of Spaarne 8 as a hotel.

In the mean time Janneke and Peter are rebuilding a mansion in the South of France, “Just 2 Suites”.

Getting there with a front that looked like this:

Just 2 Front Old

and changed into this:

Just 2 Front New

Update: In the meantime they sold this B&B as well and bought another building project.

The new owners of Just 2 Suites renamed the premises into Tresbos Farmhouse and it is now for rent on a weekly basis.
