We’ve just opened our guesthouse, MAISON RIKA, across the street from the Rika boutique. Located in the ‘9 streets’ area of Amsterdam, you can enjoy beautiful views over the canals and the best shopping and dining the centre has to offer.
MAISON RIKA, a petite guesthouse with a twist, has set foot in a former art gallery outlooking Amsterdam’s historical canals.
The traditional townhouse is three storey-high; the ground floor serves as a reception area and lifestyle store, where pop-up events are organized throughout the year. The third and second floors each have a single, fully furnished bedroom, that overlook the Herengracht canal. Furnished and decorated by Ulrika Lundren, Rika label founder and a former interior designer, each room is warm, classically elegant yet modern, and with a vintage touch.
The ancient wooden floors are painted black with a sitting area by the large windows. Each room has a comfortable Queen size bed, and features unique art pieces by Sang Ming and John Derian on its walls. The bathrooms are tiled black with matching handmade black copper wash basins.
The multifaceted lobby offers lifestyles pieces Ulrika has collected from her favorite designers, artists and markets round the world – these include John Derian glass art, Maison Michel hats, scented candles, scrap books and cards from Rifle Paper and selection of jewellery – and let’s not forget a selection of limited edition Rika travel goods.
Its gallery section also gives up-and-coming artists the opportunity of showing their work through illustration on the windows.
Part of the charm is the personal touches, The Rika staff are happy to book restaurant reservations, recommend local hotspots and tips for enjoying the city as well as the more tradition services – arranging transport – our aim is for visitors to enjoy the genuine, off-the-tracks Amsterdam.
Room rate is € 250 per night with complementary WiFi, bottled water tea&coffee, chocolate, a copy of the latest Rika Magazine and other small treats in the room. Breakfast not included, but several little cafes can be found 2-5 min walk around the Maison area.
Gallery rate is upon request.
