INK hotel and Pressroom restaurant | Dam area

INK Hotel Amsterdam at Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 67 is the latest contemporary lifestyle hotel that opened it's doors downtown. Located in the former headquarters of the Dutch newspaper De Tijd, the hotel took it's name from this inspiring place where stories were created, written and finally pressed in INK. Themes such as ‘Stories, Ink & Time’ play a big role in the new story of INK Hotel Amsterdam and have been of great influence in the unconventional choices for interior. 

The interior
For the concept and interior the hotel worked closely with the renowned architects at Concrete Amsterdam. Concrete found inspiration in the history of the building and former printing house De Tijd. From the entrance to the rooms and facilities, everything resonates the rich history of the building and tells its own story.

The entrance  has a street -like reception with high bar tables and ‘check-in-tablets’ and on the beautiful patio gives an instant garden feeling. Exclusively for the INK Hotel Amsterdam, artist Jan Rothuizen designed an atlas drawing of Amsterdam. These chalkboard-like paintings on the walls of the 149 rooms present the city of Amsterdam and tell the amusing story of the hotel and its surrounding area.

Pressroom bar and restaurant
The contemporary interior of bar and restaurant PRESSROOM is an ode to the former printing house; traditional typewriters, glass ink bottles and large rolls of printing paper. With surprising breakfast recipes, lunch platters and free bar bites during the aperitivo, to surprising and colourful dishes at dinner and high-end cocktails until late at night PRESSROOM is the ultimate place to wake up and stay awake.
