Already the fifth edition of the Hotelnacht! (Dutch, meaning hotelnight) Because there are so many great Hotelnacht parties, Hotelnacht diners and touristique activities organized, we thought we had to write about it again. The people from Amsterdam can again enjoy a great weekend holiday in their own city in the weekend of January 14-15 against reduced prices.

Visit The Grand Budapest Hotel or go to the silent disco

At the Hotelnacht the Conservatorium Hotel changes in The Grand Budapest Hotel. Complete with the grotesque Mendl’s Pastry and Lobby Boy Cocktails. Do you want to learn how to make cocktails? The best female bartender in the world, Tess Posthumus will be giving a cocktail-bar workshop in The Tailor of NH Krasnapolsky Collection. And what about Cocktail Curling on the roof of the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel or a romantic wedding in the wedding chapel at the Renaissance Hotel? The Marriott Hotel, which is currently being rebuilt, will turn their site into a gruelling silent disco and will serve ‘deconstruction cocktails’ in their hotel bar.

Some hotels will maintain their great Hotelnacht tradition, because of proven success. Like for example the Hampshire Hotel American will be organizing an American Comedy Dinner for the fifth time, this time with none other than Greg Shapiro in the lead. The Conscious Hotel will repeat their successful Beer Festival. Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy presents in cooperation with RIGHTABOUTNOW INC. a brutal but soaring line-up of urban performers in spoken word, stand-up comedy and drag, with a good dose of absurd humor.

Hotelnacht Dinners

Naturally, most hotel restaurants will serve a festive Hotelnacht Dinner, as the historical Table D’Hote at the flexitarier restaurant Swych. You can play ‘tourist’ in your own city, with a tour at the Blue Boat Company or a tour with the famous red bus. Dancing till deep into the night is possible during the eccentric freakshow ‘Roomservice’ or at the new Oosterbar at the Generator hotel. Do you wake up early? From 06:00am Café Stock of The Exchange serves a Bloody Breakfast.

For the program and tickets, visit And just to be clear: to participate you need to find a friend in the region of Amsterdam! He or she must be the one to book online and has to identify as the ‘booker’ at the desk during the check in.
