Hotel Description

We tend to believe that small is beautiful, in hotels at least. And if that’s true, then logically it follows that Private Mansions is pretty much as beautiful as a hotel can get. It was, at first, that rarest of beasts, the one-room hotel — but to be perfectly fair, this particular hotel would be beautiful at any size. (Which is a good thing, because they’ve gone and increased the room count by a hundred per cent — of which more later.)

For one thing, it’s an insanely eclectic space, giving the lie once and for all to the notion that everything Dutch has to be bubbly and futuristic. The building’s rebirth and restoration was inspired by its 19th-century history as well as its pre-history as a 15th-century convent. Today it’s an events space, essentially, and thus designed for maximum atmosphere, maximum romance — and the same goes for its single apartment, spanning the top two floors of the building. And the service, such as it is, stays out of your way — the kitchen on the lower level means you’re responsible for your own meals, and the bedroom, all alone on the upper floor, is impervious to the dreaded early-morning housekeeper’s knock.

Newly added is the Secret Chapel, an option a short walk away for guests who find the original to be altogether too conventional a lodging. This one is more or less exactly what it sounds like, a chapel used in secret by Catholics during the 18th century, now upgraded with a kitchen, a claw-foot tub and a bed where the altar used to be.

In both cases the photos more or less speak for themselves. If anything its design seems closer in spirit to cinematic set design than to any identifiable hospitality trends. If you value consistency and predictability above all else, then Amsterdam’s got plenty of traditional luxury hotels for you. But if atmosphere and character are your primary concerns, Private Mansions is impossible to top.

Please note: Private Mansions and the Secret Chapel each sleep two guests, both of whom must be 18 or older. The minimum stay is two nights. The apartment is located on the second and third floors of the building and can only be reached by stairs. Guests checking in between 8 pm and 12 am will incur a €45 charge; guests wishing to check in after midnight must make arrangements in advance.
