The Zaandam Inntel
“This unusual hotel near Amsterdam was designed by architect Wilfried van Winden, has now been open a little over two years. Overall, it resembles cleverly interconnected and stacked traditional Zaans cottages, usually green. The blue section, in one top corner of the twelfth floor, pays homage to one of the several studies of the town, painted by Claude Monet in 1871, including:Bateaux en Hollande pres de Zaandam, A Windmill at Zaandam, and (not surprisingly) The Blue House.” via Tartuffe’s Folly
The Netherlands are always gaining cool points in my book.
