Set in a former tram depot built in 1902, the 55-room Hotel De Hallen is an upscale boutique hotel that combines a mid-century modern aesthetic with a dose of industrial-chic courtesy of the cavernous interiors of this warehouse-like space. Common spaces are filled with Scandinavian furniture, modern art installations, and an abundance of fresh plants and flowers, and there are plenty of chic lounge areas to relax in, including the lobby bar and the hip Remise47 restaurant. Rooms are comfortable and stylish, though many don't get a lot of natural light as windows overlook interior corridors. Bathrooms, though modern and chic, might pose privacy issues as they have glass doors. Though a bit removed from Amsterdam's city center, this residential area is full of restaurants and cafes and the building itself is also home to the adjoining De Hallen complex, which includes a large food market, movie theater, and a library. For something of a similar nature, but more central location, travelers should consider some of the other properties from the Vondel Hotels chain, such as Hotel Roemer.
