SWEETS HOTEL | 1 HOTEL / 28 BRIDGE HOUSES
Stay on top of Amsterdam's canals!
SWEETS hotel is an innovative hotel concept in Amsterdam, consisting of 28 individually designed tiny bridge houses, dotted through the city and connected by waterways. With structures dating from 1673 up to 2009, every bridge house has a story of its own.
For over a 100 years, Amsterdam's bridge houses accommodated the city's many bridge keepers who were responsible for opening these impressive structures for passing boat traffic. However, with the introduction of a centralised bridge control system, the bridge houses became redundant. SWEETS hotel brings the tiny houses back to life by restoring the historic exteriors and transforming the interiors into unique hotel rooms. With a digital Neighbourhood Guide available in every bridge house, SWEETS hotel offers curious travellers the perfect starting point to discover Amsterdam’s hidden gems.
SWEETS hotel was conceptualized by Suzanne Oxenaar, Otto Nan and Gerrit Groen of Seven New Things – initiators of Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy (sold in 2018) and Hotel The Exchange.
