Upcycling perfected

Inspired by the nearby Waterlooplein Platz and its popular flea market, the design concept of the Motel One Amsterdam – Waterlooplein draws heavily on the idea of upcycling. The One Lounge of our design hotel was created with the help of internationally renowned artist Piet Hein Eek and demonstrates how antiques and used items can be combined to establish a whole new character. Featuring walls covered with old windows, doors and cabinets, chandeliers that have been assembled from lights purchased at flea markets, and a fantastic workbench with specially created table lamps, the lounge is sure to spark your creativity and invite you to linger. Our motto: perfectly imperfect!
Even Rembrandt himself would have felt at home in our cosy box-spring beds, with linens made of 100% Egyptian cotton.

The famous Dutch artist lived a stone’s throw away from the design hotel in the Rembrandt House, and his style of contrasting light and shadows can now be seen in the One Lounge. Natural and handcrafted materials round off the design concept of the affordable Motel One Amsterdam – Waterlooplein. You can expect to enjoy the usual healthy organic breakfast, free WiFi and friendly service during your stay in Amsterdam.
Want to explore the city? Our design hotel is situated directly in the city centre, just around the corner from the National Opera & Ballet and the Rembrandt House Museum. It serves as the perfect starting point for venturing into the canals of the Dutch capital, exploring the central area or visiting the Zuiderkerk church. Experience upcycling perfected and book a stay at our design hotel in Amsterdam.
