nhow Amsterdam RAI
nhow is NH Hotel Group’s fast growing and disruptive hotel brand, we previewed their London debut last year.
Inspired by the cities in which they are located and designed by the leading creative minds of our times (Foster+Partners, OMA, founded by Rem Koolhaas, Karim Rashid, Sergei Tchoban, Teresa Sapey and Matteo Thun, among others), nhow is simultaneously a hotel and a creative hub.
Each nhow establishment becomes a landmark in its city, a melting pot for creativity.
Amsterdam, metropolitan and cosmopolitan city that it is, is also seen as a cultural melting pot.
Inspired by that idea, the first nhow hotel in the Dutch capital, an iconic four-star hotel, has opened its doors as a meeting place where “contemporary art, design, fine dining and cultural expression echo the multicultural spirit that characterises this great city.”
Cultural influences from all around the world are on display throughout the hotel’s 24 storeys.
A vibrant mix of colours, lights and patterns come together with international symbols such as the mandalas of India, skulls of Mexico and the cherry blossoms of Japan to create an exciting and striking cultural fusion.
The hotel’s 650 rooms have been designed to follow the six cardinal points to which the hotel points: north, northeast, east, south, southwest and southeast.
Its location, beside the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre and just a 10-minute walk from the city centre, makes this hotel an ideal destination for business travellers.
nhow Amsterdam RAI has nine meeting rooms, with capacity for 145 people, and all are located on the 23rd floor, giving them stunning views over the city.
The newly-built hotel is now the largest hotel in the Benelux market.
The iconic building housing the hotel was designed by Reinier de Graaf, an architect from the OMA Studio, founded by Rem Koolhaas.
It is made up of three overlapping triangles pointing in different directions, symbolising the multicultural backdrop that characterises the past, present and future of the city of Amsterdam.
