With its vibrant and cosmopolitan social life and extraordinary cultural treasures, the Netherlands’ capital frequently tops international league tables in terms of the quality of life enjoyed by its ever-growing student population. With institutions ranging from the heavyweight University of Amsterdam – six Nobel Laureates and counting – to the Rietveld School of Art & Design with its big-name alumni such as design legend Wim Crouwel, the city has an impressive array of world-class centres of learning. With the opening of The Student Hotel, Amsterdam finally has world-class accommodation to match its credentials, a place where students of all stripes can make connections across the academic and social spectrum.
Of course, the need for affordable, quality accommodation doesn’t end on graduation day, which is why The Student Hotel is proud to offer rooms to recent graduates and those undertaking internships in the Amsterdam area. With its superb facilities and nurturing environment, The Student Hotel is the perfect springboard for emerging talent for the new generation of mobile minds finding their place in the global employment landscape.

Neighbouring café-restaurant The Kitchen – from the team behind popular Amsterdam eatery De Stadskantine – serves nourishing, modestly-priced meals in a relaxed, sociable environment.

Flashpackers welcome!
Why should students have all the fun? It occurred to the founders of The Student Hotel that the blend of cultures and personalities present in the international student population makes The Student Hotel an ideal destination venue for the so-called ‘flashpackers’. This new generation of backpackers is young, adventurous and design-savvy and seeks affordable luxury in the company of interesting people in a sociable environment. A proportion of The Student Hotel’s accommodation is at their disposal all year round. Guests are welcome to join in with the wide range of social activities throughout the year, from summer barbecues to film screenings and dance parties in the hotel’s basement. Take note, however: a sign by the entrance warns ‘some never leave’.
