Amsterdam, metropolitan and cosmopolitan city that it is, is seen as a cultural melting pot. Inspired by that idea, the maiden nhow in the Dutch capital, an iconic four-star hotel, has opened its doors as a meeting place where contemporary art, design, fine dining and cultural expression echo the multicultural spirit that characterises this great city.

Cultural influences from all around the world are on display throughout the establishment's 24 storeys. A vibrant mix of colours, lights and patterns come together with international symbols such as the mandalas of India, skulls of de Mexico or the cherry blossoms of Japan to create an exciting and striking cultural fusion. The hotel's 650 rooms have been designed to follow the six cardinal points to which the hotel points: north, northeast, east, south, southwest and southeast.

Its location, beside the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre and just a 10 minute walk from the city centre, makes this hotel an ideal destination for business travellers. The nhow Amsterdam RAI has nine new meeting rooms, with capacity for 145 people, all of which located on the 23rd floor, giving them stunning views over the city.

The food offering is spearheaded by The Entourage Group, an internationally renowned hospitality group. The nhow Amsterdam RAI brings the city two new eateries: a restaurant and bar on the first floor and a sky lounge and bar on the top floor, at a height of 91 metres with panoramic views out over the city.

The nhow Amsterdam RAI has taken up its place as the largest new-build hotel in the Benelux market. The iconic building housing the hotel was designed by Reinier de Graaf, an architect from the OMA Studio, founded by Rem Koolhaas. It is made up of three overlapping triangles pointing in different directions, symbolising the multicultural backdrop that characterises the past, present and future of the city of Amsterdam.
