About the company:
Original, robust and authentic, that is how Hotel van de Vijsel can be described. The hotel is characterized by elements of wood and vintage combined with art and design for a contemporary look and feel. In the monumental building located at the Overtoom 13-17 near Vondelpark, Houthandel Van de Vijsel was located since the 19th century. A merge of industrial and craft can still be felt in the powerful appearance of the building. The original wooden beams are numbered and replaced in the original place after the renovation. Wood dominates naturally, so different types of wood are subtly processed and interwoven in the hotel. In all the 82 luxury rooms, wooden elements can be seen with vintage details from the 19th century. The hotel has a cozy lobby with the ‘honesty bar’, where guests can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or a glass of wine at any time of the day.
