You don't need to be a philosopher to appreciate this boutique hotel, but knowing something about Plato and Kant would certainly enhance your experience.

Created by philosopher Ida Jongsma for philosophy lovers, Hotel de Filosoof (the philosopher), located in Amsterdam, provides testimony to the great thinkers of the past.

Each of the 38 rooms is uniquely decorated in different philosophical and cultural themes, with pertinent paintings, quotations, books, sculptures and murals.

The Goethe room has a framed passage from the poem Faust, the Zen room is inspired by Yin and Yang themes, while Plato room is furnished in black and white and decorated with trompe-l'oeil pictures.
A philosophical mood permeates even your breakfast, served in a room papered with sheet music where placemats are adorned with the words of the wise.

The hotel occupies three elegant, late-19th-century houses, and is endowed of a library, for those who desire to deepen their knowledge of philosophy, and a spacious garden, for guests' relax and, of course, meditation. Stats for Philosophy Boutiqe Hotel Trending: Older & Chilly
