The Arcade Hotel, World’s First Overnight Spot Specifically For Gamers, Opens In Amsterdam
The landing page tells the story of the ideabehind the new Arcade Hotel in Amsterdam.
“Thelonious Monk meets the Eames couple meets Marty McFly and they all have a drink with Captain Sparrow. Gaming, mid-century design and a lot of heart & soul under one roof.”
Here’s a quick overview that will have you booking a room the minute you’re done reading.
We take a first look at the newly opened Arcade Hotel in Amsterdam, which combines mid-century design with all the necessary consoles and games that gamers could wish for. Each of the 36 rooms comes with a vintage gaming console and a special game rental system. Furthermore you can pick up handheld consoles from the reception or go for a battle in the lobby. If you want to take a step away from the gaming, you can also get a bit lost in the comic book library. The rooms are outfitted with vintage furniture finds and mid-century design classics.
The hotel offers a 1:00pm checkout because they “know those few minutes extra sleep are worth it”, a discounted breakfast of “local cheese, organic jams, Italian ham, fresh fruits, whole grain bread and honey and unlimited D.I.Y Waffles” free unlimited coffee and tea (for late nights or not awake yet mornings) and a free welcome drink (alcoholic) upon arrival.
