Sir Albert Hotel

Sir Albert Hotel conference room

A mind-expanding jaunt to Amsterdam – it sounds about as likely to get signed off by the board as a team-building beano to Oktoberfest. But thanks to the new, ultra-soothing creative space at the city’s Sir Albert Hotel, this is now a plausible proposition.

It’s Amsterdam’s status as one of the world’s most energetic start-up hubs that persuaded the hotel, a one-time diamond factory in the vibrant De Pijp [The Pipe] district just south of the city centre, to devote a new space to meetings, photo shoots, launches and other business-related gatherings.

With its natural daylight (thanks to the high ceilings and large windows), ping-pong table, corkboard wall and soft furnishings, it’s the antithesis to the stressful, imagination-stifling surrounds of the conventional office space.

Add to that the state-of-the-art projector and Apple TV (to which a mobile phone, MacBook or iPod can be connected wirelessly), plus a Smeg fridge full of drinks, snacks and nibbles, and it’s the perfect place for an overnight brainstorming trip.

When it comes to giving your team a wellbeing boost and renewed creative vigour, this is a place where work, rest and play can sing in harmony.
