Hotel Dwars – What a wonderful Hotel in Amsterdam!
THE STORY: Hotel Hotspot in Amsterdam: Dwars Hotel
I saw some pictures of the Dwars Hotel before my stay in Amsterdam and it was Love at first sight! I do always lots of research to find the right places to stay before I go on holidays but for Amsterdam i didn’t had to search that long. The right choosen colour and material mix that they had, a mix of wood-homey-feeling, industrial lamps, many green lively plants and some brick walls made me feel irresistable to the Dwars Hotel. Also the perfect mix-match blankets made me feel crazy immediately.
Normally, if you go to a city for 3 nights you stay at one Hotel for 3 nights, but since i wanted to visit & sleep in The Droog for pain and blood we decided to move at least for the last night to the Dwars. And im happy that I saw this beautiful, somehow very personal hotel by myself and not only from the pictures on the web.
The Dwars was actually years ago a hostel. I saw pictures of it and I swear, I would have never slept in this place before the big change. I maybe can also sleep in Hostels but hey, maybe (only maybe) a Generator Hostel with private room and private bathroom. Hostel-sharing-things are not really my thing. The Dwars was full of graffitti on the stairs and walls, dark rooms, beercrates everywhere. Im glad that they changed everything! I found a book in the Hotel which described the whole Dwars story and it was more than interesting to see this. The new owners took over the old Dwars Hostel in May 2012, the actual setting up of the interior began in October 2013. I love to see how things can change and especially interiors. And that in such a dramatic way. Wow! Because they really ripped off everything, which, let me repeat…. is more than good!!!!
THE COLOR AND MATERIAL MIX AT DWARS HOTEL IS AMAZING: CALM, NATURAL & COOL AT THE SAME TIME
If you walk into The Dwars Hotel and especially into your room you really feel like “home”. The colors, the materials, the little details (such as the toilet-paper-holder…) let you feel that there’s a personal touch in every corner of the room. Dwars Hotel is actually a really small Hotel, there are 9 rooms on 4 floors, all beautifully designed and decorated by/with the “Things i like Things i love“crew.
We had a wonderful room on the ground floor with a wonderful roof made out of glass. Fan-tas-tic! The beds are excellent, i slept better at the Dwars than at my own home. That’s for sure.
If youre staying at the Dwars you are in the middle of a shopping area: Utrechtestraat. From here you can go everywhere by feet and if you dont want to walk ( you should… lots of shops, bars and restaurants nearby) you can rent a bicycle. The Dwars is a really cool Lifestyle Hotel with a good price.
HOW FABULOUS IS THIS PLACE?:
DWARS HOTEL WAS ACTUALLY A HOSTEL YEARS AGO.
I love the whole Dwars Hotel. I love the interior, the feeling, the atmosphere, the location and we do love Mette, because she was so helpful to us when we arrived. Me and my college Philip had many questions and she helped us with everything. Thank you Mette! Only thing we recommend: People who are a bit rounder than us should and who have claustrophobic feelings should maybe book a room on the ground floor because the stairs are not really big. I am totally satisfied with everything and totally sure that I will come back at least 8 more times, because i want to see all of your rooms. Im sure they do have all something special!
