In order to realise this, the Museumhotel on P.C. Hooftstraat is currently undergoing a thorough renovation. All 188 rooms will be fully modernised and the historical exterior will be refreshed and rejuvenated. The lobby, bar and courtyard are also part of the renovations. Anna Pruijn, General Manager: “Here, you can sleep next to the Rijksmuseum and between the exclusive shops on the P.C. Hooftstraat. As well as updating our new rooms, we are expanding our facilities with a surprising new hospitality concept. This will not only be a fantastic new addition for our hotel guests, but also benefit local visitors to the Museum District!”

The first Leonardo Hotel with the ‘Boutique’ brand was opened in 2009. The portfolio now encompasses 12 Leonardo Boutique Hotels located in popular cities such as Berlin, Tel Aviv, Barcelona and Madrid. The Boutique lifestyle-brand combines characteristic design with a ‘homely’ feeling and personal service. For the purposes renovating the Museumhotel, interior designer Andreas Neudahm found inspiration in the rich history of the adjoining Rijksmuseum. Already a permanent interior designer for the Fattal Hotel Group, Neudahm is given the creative freedom to come up with made-to-measure designs for each hotel. During the renovation works, the Museumhotel will remain partially open. 

Alexander Kluit, Managing Director of Fattal Hotel Group, Netherlands & Belgium: “At the beginning of 2019, Leonardo Hotels introduced its biggest flagship, the Leonardo Royal Hotel Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. After its name change to Leonardo Hotel Amsterdam Rembrandtpark on 1 August, this is the second Apollo Hotel to continue under the European brand of the Fattal Hotel Group. With this renovation and name change, Fattal Hotel Group is raising the profile of Leonardo Hotels in the Netherlands; from April 2020, the portfolio will include 4 Leonardo Hotels with over over 1,200 rooms in Amsterdam.”
