Oud Zuid

Hotel Patou


63 Pieter Cornelisz. Hooftstraat,

1071 BN.

Although named after 20th-century French fashion designer Jean Patou, the 12 rooms of this small, boutique hotel in the upscale Oud-Zuid district bear the signature of minimalist architect Jen Alkema and include blond wood floors, soft lighting, platform beds, and original photographs of models dressed in Patou’s designs. Three sizes of rooms are available and all are accessible by elevator, making the hotel comfortable for guests with mobility issues. For meals, the Brasserie Patou downstairs serves “snacks” of oysters, truffles, and champagne, perfect for watching the customers go in and out of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Gucci across the street.
