The Tribe and Mercure brands are moving into the Amsterdam Noord district. Pictured here is the Mercure lobby.
Accor and its lifestyle hotel subsidiary Ennismore are making their joint entry into the Amsterdam-Noord district with the opening of a Mercure hotel and a Tribe, a new brand whose lifestyle spirit is in line with the evolution of the northern part of the Dutch capital. Long occupied by the NDSM shipyards, this district separated from the city center by the Ij is undergoing a revival with a blossoming of bars and restaurants and as major points the opening of the Eye Film Institute in 2012, the A’dam Lookout in 2016, a former office tower of the Shell company revisited as a tourist lighthouse with its viewpoint dominating the whole city, or the inauguration in 2018 of the Noord metro station, adjacent to the new hotels and linking the district to the south of Amsterdam.
So it’s in this dynamic environment that a Mercure hotel has taken its place, whose decor, designed by Dutch designer Charlotte Emmerig, is inspired by water, which is omnipresent in Amsterdam. ” We used many products of Dutch origin in the design of our hotel, from wallpaper to flooring to the unique interior lighting elements in our 110 rooms

I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
