I Have to Smile

The architecture of the new Inntel Hotel in Zandaam deserves nothing less. It’s the best form of kitsch.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    It looks like great fun!

    I’m almost tempted to spend a night in the hotel to see it for myself. What I like about it, is that it has no pretensions. It knows it’s a bit of fun, and invites you to share in the joke. Unlike po-faced Disneyesque architecture that pretends to be something that it ain’t. Prince Charles’ Poundbury springs to mind.
