Hotel Not Hotel in Rotterdam can be found at Schaatsbaan 83, just around the corner from Rotterdam Central Station. One of the most ideal places to have a hotel room. After your train ride, you can enter your room and walk to the heart of the city.
This hotel is just that little bit different. Why? Several (local) artists have set to work here in Hotel Not Hotel to make it quite an experience: it feels like an artistic village, with squares, houses and hidden front doors.
The hotel contains 36 rooms, something you wouldn’t think when you step inside. The rooms are so hidden that it seems that there are only a few rooms. Some doors have been transformed into bookcases or mirrors! Each room is in a different area, located on the two courtyards. You have a Hansel and Gretel house, a mirror house, a castle, an Italian house and more.
Eating out at Jesús Malverde
Of course, the hotel cannot exist without a matching restaurant. And not just any restaurant: a Mexican restaurant slash cocktail bar. No fewer than 85 visitors can enjoy dinner and cocktails here until the late hours. Mexican street food is paramount here, such as delicious fresh tacos.
But not only the tacos are impressive, the interior also fits exactly with the rest of the hotel: artistic and daring. Bright red walls, benches, tables and… what not? A real eye-catcher with only custom made furniture.
