Nhow Amsterdam RAI Hotel will be the main hotel for RAI Amsterdam convention and exhibition centre and a new urban presence in Amsterdam’s rapidly developing Zuidas business district. It is to be the largest hotel of the Benelux, with 650 rooms in total. The complex, including a restaurant, bar, and a live television studio, provides places for work as well as entertainment, also after the opening hours of events in the RAI.
The three shifted triangular volumes of the new Nhow Amsterdam RAI Hotel are a unique addition to Amsterdam’s skyline.
The hotel’s facade is made of aluminum and a filling of glass panels. The building has 24 floors, of which 19 floors are occupied by the hotel, each floor accommodating 24 to 36 hotel rooms. The hotel lobby is spread over two floors, with separately rentable retail spaces on the ground floor and a hotel lounge and bar on the first floor.
The building hosts public and semi-public facilities on its top floors, which are accessible through a lift from the hotel lobby and provide a spectacular panoramic view of Amsterdam.
