Showhero Hotel | A feast of 3 days at the King’s Inn City Hotel

For three days the King’s Inn City Hotel in the heart of Alkmaar was dedicated to people with disabilities. The temporary hotel staff worked at the reception, served the most delicious dishes, worked at room service and cleaned hotel rooms.

In the pub of the Hotel Show Hero it was all about fun and entertainment. The pub was the platform for all musicians, local artists and bands. With performances from Alfon Oekie, Sweet Le Freak and Bernard Karsten. In the hotel rooms the visitors enjoyed the enthusiastic and creative staff: they listened to the stories of Annemiek in Annemiek’s Stories Room, sang lustily with tearjerkers in Eric Stam café or joined one of the many workshops.
