For the curious traveller
Since 11 November 2004, the historic building of the Lloyd hotel is located along the river IJ in Amsterdam,
the first 1-to-5 star hotel in the world. From backpackers to business travellers, everyone is welcome here.
Lloyd Hotel is a gathering of individuals, in all shapes and sizes, who share a love for Amsterdam and the need to make you feel at home.
Although the Lloyd hotel originates from 2004, the building itself has a much longer and richer history. In 1921 architect Evert Breman was commissioned by the shipping company ‘Koninlijke Hollandsche Lloyd’ to design the hotel, which was meant to let emigrants stay for a few nights and a place from which ships could leave the dock. After the bankruptcy of the shipping company in 1935, the building was taken over by the municipality of Amsterdam, after which it got several functions; a shelter for refugees, a German prison, a house of custody, and in the 90’s it functioned as an art gallery. When the eastern port area went belly up, the Lloyd Hotel got monumental status and reopened in November 2004 as a hotel, but also as a place that opens itself up for cultural events and partnerships.
