Located only a few minutes away from Dam Square, Amsterdam's INK Hotel is a stunning example of finding a compromise between accommodations that reflect local life as well as the desires of the modern traveler. The design-focused space is a space that formerly housed the head office for a large newspaper and an attached print shop, a history that is reflected in the hotel's decor, with typography being one of the main themes.
The INK Hotel also references the history of the building with the concept of its restaurant, The PRESSROOM. Largely, the INK Hotel aimed to embody the history of a place where stories were both written and printed. Like many Amsterdam lodgings, the hotel restaurant and bar have been designed to appeal to both guests and locals.
