About Zoku
Zoku is a new extended stay hotel concept. It is a hybrid between a hotel and a short-stay office for people who need to live and work in a city for a period between five days and three months. Zoku has been designed for international entrepreneurs, self-employed professionals, project managers, management consultants, entire project teams, start-ups and incubators. Zoku offers a global nomad’s home base through a smart loft (private areas) and communal spaces (public areas): areas to work, sleep, live and play in.

The first Zoku will be realized in Amsterdam and will open in Q2 2015. After this, the concept will be rolled-out internationally in cities like London, Paris, Berlin and Barcelona. For more information please visit

About HotelsAhead
Zoku has been developed by HotelsAhead, an Amsterdam based company specialized in hotel concept development, experience design and business model innovation. HotelsAhead is the initial creator of the award-winning citizenM hotel concept, with locations in Amsterdam, London and Glasgow, which is now being realized globally in places such as Paris, Rotterdam, New York and Asia soon to come.

HotelsAhead develops hotel concepts with the direct input of future guests. We have them walk around our prototype areas, brainstorm around the kitchen table and even test the beds. We envision and act upon their future needs, wants and desires, because we recognize that ultimately this new and connected customer will take us ahead in our constant search for innovation within our concepts. We focus on relevance and skipping the frills: the world is in need for smarter solutions instead of more stuff.
