Once accommodating the city’s bridge keepers, Amsterdam’s bridge houses have been converted into tiny abodes of comfort and luxury, after the introduction of an automated control bridge system. One can now enjoy the Amsterdam canals by being much closer to the waters.
What are these Amsterdam bridge houses?
There are 28 suites all unique in their own way which have been transformed by the Sweets Hotel. These houses are tiny two-person suites which have ultra modern interiors with an ancient 17th century exterior. The suites do not hold a typical kitchen but are fitted with a mini fridge and coffee and tea makers for the ease of its guests.
One can now choose the neighbourhood they want to live in and enjoy the architectural beauty and the historical charm of the place from these rooms perched on the bridge. The oldest bridge house which dates back to 1673 is the Amstel Schutsluis and is the only one with a kitchen.
These dainty houses exude the historic charm of Amsterdam with all the modern day amenities and are a perfect sojourn for a romantic getaway. Though these offbeat perched houses welcome guests only above the age of 21, they let you stay close to quaint environs around the lakes and far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Here’s what this fancy abode looks like from the inside:
Oh, did we mention? The starting price is only INR 12,915/-!
