The hotel rooms at the Lloyd Hotel range from one to five stars and are priced accordingly, offers a different experience for each star rating. Each room is carefully designed, as a number of exciting Dutch Designers (Claudy Jongstra, Hella Jongerius, De Bazel, Marcel Wanders, Richard Hutten, to name but a few) have created several of the furniture pieces.

The 5-Star (Amazing) rooms are huge, each with their own special element: one has a four-meter-wide bed (sleeps eight); another, an enormous fibre-glass bath set in the centre of the room, another, a grand piano.

The 4-Star (Exceptional Rooms) are beautiful, spacious rooms with exceptional interior design. Some rooms boast original cupboards and come with a bed-in-a-cupboard while others offer atmospheric lighting through the ceiling-high French windows. The furniture is designed by famous contemporary Dutch designers, also complimented by classic furniture from the 20’s by architect De Bazel.

The 3-Star (Remarkable) rooms are also equipped with furniture from famous contemporary Dutch artists such as Richard Hutten, Ineke Hans and Tjalko Lokhorst. For the bathrooms Bureau Lakenvelder, Atelier van Lieshout and architects MVRDV came up with remarkable solutions: some rooms have incredible fold-away bathrooms while others are brightly colored and are in the middle of the room.

The 2-Star (Surprising) rooms have a surprising interior, offering plenty of room to take a shower. The designs by MVRDV and Seyferth have led to innovative solutions. Some rooms offer a surprising shower while other rooms have a magnificent view over the water.

The 1-Star rooms have been restored with much attention and love into their original state. The design by Christoph Seyferth ensures that every space has been fully utilized without losing its essence or originality. All rooms offer a view over the water and have specially designed beds, tables and lamps. Guests are offered the use of a bathrobe free of charge, for their little stroll to the bathroom.
