Its location in the fashionable Strijp-S neighbourhood is perfectly situated for exploring the nearby art galleries and design stores. A rock ‘n’ roll theme means that you’ll find bourbon barrels, cowboy portraits and authentic industrial features such as light fixtures and hardware from its factory days scattered around the hotel, which also sometimes hosts live music performances.
Inntel Hotels Art Eindhoven
This luxury 4-star hotel is housed in the former Philips Light Tower, where the world’s first light bulbs were developed. More than a century later, the centrally-located Inntel Hotels Art Eindhoven blends its industrial past with elegant design, gourmet cuisine and a luxury spa, sauna and wellness centre. Among the various styles of rooms, the lofts are particularly unique with 4-metre high ceilings, accents of exposed concrete which pay tribute to its factory past and stylish Italian-designed bathrooms.
