Yesterday something cool happend in the Teleport Hotel near Sloterdijk station in Amsterdam. The Teleport Hotel opened in the summer of 2016 and is situated in an old office building. This meant that a lot of work needed to be done and they decided to pimp their hotel by organizing a graffiti art event held on the 27th and 28th of November with amazing results..
They really promote their guests to discover Amsterdam
The Teleport Hotel offers 143 studio rooms and each of those have a small kitchen so you can feel right at home and save money by being able to prepare simple meals. Each room has a Flat Screen TV, free Wi-Fi and safety box. Bathrooms include a shower, hairdryer and toiletries. The hotel features a chill area, colorful dining room and even a small gym. But they really promote their guests to discover Amsterdam so the hotel offers a lot of tours like the art tour where local graffiti artists walk you around the city discovering the coolest street art. The hotel is located near Amsterdam’s 2nd largest trainstation with only one stop from Amsterdam Central. If you want you can rent a bicycle for €15,- per 24 hours. The hotel mainly accommodates young people on the go but sees more and more travelers from all sorts of ages and backgrounds, as long as they love to explore. It’s also a great location for a business stop as the Schiphol Airport is only 2 stations away from Sloterdijk Station.
Because it used to be an office building, the rooms looked a bit dull and this is something the management really wanted to change. By inviting several local street artists, the hotel is getting a total make-over. At the event graffiti artists like Dotsy, Sket185, Sjem Bakkus and Press One sprayed 20 rooms into a colorful display.
Be sure to check the last day of the event which is being held today (28th of November) and see the artists finishing the rooms. If you can’t make it this time, keep an eye on their website as a second event will be organized in the new year!
