The Hoxton Amsterdam
Shoreditch Vibe, Amsterdam Style
When the popular Shoreditch mainstay Hoxton Hotel opened a new branch in Holborn in 2014 and called it The Hoxton Holborn, we were mildly bemused and wondered whether out-of-town visitors would be confused by this geographic mesh-up. Now the same team has taken the concept one step further by launching The Hoxton Amsterdam and we are impressed by how well this cross-border transplant works. Made of 5 canal houses at the corner of two grand canals in central Amsterdam, The Hoxton Amsterdam somehow manages to combine the industrial cool of Shoreditch with the laid-back vibe of Amsterdam to create a space perfect for hipsters. We particularly like The Apartment, a set of multi-functional event spaces designed to evoke the atmosphere of different rooms in a house (kitchen, library etc). We can't think of a cooler venue to host our board meetings. Smoking, especially of herbal products, is definitely not allowed.

The archetypal loft apartment might have been born in New York, but this apartment shows that when it comes to effortless cool the West coast is hard to beat.
The multi-talented Soren Rose may be based in New York, but his aesthetics are firmly grounded in his Danish roots.
This quirky 101 square metre apartment may look industrial with its concrete ceilings and brick walls but the design inspirations are more 1001 Arabian Nights.
