Our partner hotel


#hotelfriends takes you on a journey through time to the school days of the seventies to meet an extraordinary and exciting world of design. The project is geared toward daydreaming travelers and raving city hoppers. No one room like another, no piece of furniture chosen without deliberation, not a single detailed disregarded; all forty guest-rooms tell their own, exciting history. You encounter here all kinds of familiar faces like Sherlock Holmes and Coco Chanel, and you take a field trip to the Hamptons and play vinyls from the music room’s collection.
