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.

Yotel

The designers of the Airbus have developped cabins that you can push and shove into a building.

Push 20 cabins in a warehouse and you have a Yotel.

Hoteliers can order the cabins at Yotel.

Fashion makers into hotels

Analik has her own fashion label and a shop in Amsterdam (9 streets shopping area).

Now she has purchased a property in Antwerpen where she will start a new shop and a hotel. In autumn she will open a hotel next to her Amsterdam shop. More to follow under the name: Miauw Suites.

Other fashion makers preceded her:
