Sonder opens doors to its first property in Amsterdam

From stunning architecture to beautiful art, Amsterdam inspires travelers around the world. Founded as a fishing village in the 13th century, this cultural center is one of the most popular travel destinations today in Europe. We’re pleased to help showcase some of Amsterdam’s history with the opening of a historic building, built in 1860. 

”We are thrilled to launch Sonder in Amsterdam, one of the most vibrant and unique cities in Europe,” shared Chris Kok, General Manager of Sonder in the Netherlands. “We are eager to introduce a new hospitality option for travelers in Amsterdam who are interested in exploring the local businesses and experiencing the true culture of the city. We look forward to collaborating closely with the local administration and cultural and social organizations in the city, as we do our small part to help Amsterdam recover from the negative impact that COVID-19 has had on our economy.”

The fully renovated, 83-room Sonder Park House adorned with artwork from local artists is an inspiring location to have as a home base for any Amsterdam experience. Park House has views overlooking Vondelpark in the center of Amsterdam and is close to the Rijksmuseum and The Royal Concertgebouw. The location is a short walk from the canal district and features amenities like a spacious garden terrace, a lounge, and a bar.

The hotel features contemporary art from local Dutch and global artists, including Hyland Mather, whose work can be found throughout the building. As part of a broader effort to introduce guests to small boutique art galleries, as well as the famous ones in the Museum District, Sonder has partnered with the STRAAT gallery to offer guests a 25% discount when they book through the QR code found in our lobby.

Eveline Doornhegge, regional manager Amsterdam Koninklijke Horeca Nederland (KHN) adds: “We are pleased with the arrival of the new Sonder hotel in Amsterdam. A hospitality company that is already well known in the US and several European cities, Sonder distinguishes itself by applying new technology and is looking for cooperation with many local partners.”

Jan Schrijver, chairman of the Residents’ Association of the Museum Quarter is glad to have this new hotel in the neighborhood: “It’s interesting to have the new Sonder hotel with its special formula in our quarters. Hopefully, its residents will enjoy the Museum quarter and liv in it as we as citizens do. Then they are most welcome.”
