European Travel Awards 2022

EU BUSINESS NEWS / European Travel Awards 2022 13 , Best Contemporary Travellers' Accommodation – Amsterdam Based in The Netherlands, BUNK bridges the gap between hotels and hostels by combining affordable luxury rooms and smartly designed private pods. We profile the firm in the wake of it receiving a 2022 European Travel Award. Two monumental churches, lovingly converted into a temporary home, are open to travelers, locals, and artists alike. With 200 rooms between them, the renovated historical churches are situated in Utrecht and Amsterdam and offer a place where those who wander will start to wonder, triggered by true art, social events, honest food, and sincere smiles. At BUNK, comfort and design are available to everyone, without the need for deep pockets. Where each visitor can feel free to be themselves and play their part in stories to be carried with them forever. Whether you book the biggest room or just a single-but-still-large private pod, you’ll always get the full BUNK treatment. Luxury bathrooms, supersized beds, and fluffy towels are included. So are helpful hosts, 24/7 security and free, furiously fast wireless internet, with power outlets and USB sockets tucked almost everywhere – all from a starting price of just €24 a night. While the rooms differ in size, privacy, and budget, every interior design element embraces each church’s original architecture and quirks that enhance spaces with high ceilings, ancient organs, open terraces, a dash of history, sweeping canal views, and airy lofts. You can get comfy on the quality beds made up with crisp sheets and set the mood with the ambient lighting system. You’ll have your own ensuite bathroom stocked with organic shampoo, body wash and a hairdryer, where you can refresh underneath a water-saving, high pressure rain shower. Check yourself in Jun22423 using our easy automated check-in system, store your personal belongings in a secret safe, and manage your room temperature with a remote that does more than just control the LED TV. BUNK also loves to bring people together by hosting inclusive social events, which are always free, in their sustainable restaurants and other communal spaces. BUNK is also the home of UNTOLD, a non-profit recording and broadcasting studio which artist, poets, musicians, and other creative professionals can use for free. It even has an artist-inresidence program in which artists can apply for a free stay. Recently, BUNK was recognised in the European Travel Awards 2022 and bestowed with the prestigious title of Best Contemporary Travellers' Accommodation for its Amsterdam location, and it’s easy to see why. Situated just minutes by free ferry from Central Station lies Amsterdam North – a neighbourhood which is alive and kicking, bursting with cultural hotspots and authentic urban life. Here, the Saint Rita church has always been a place where the North comes together. Now, it’s also where you’ll find BUNK Amsterdam. This monumental building is now home to 296 guests, 106 rooms, 50 private pods, eight communal dinner tables and one teddy bear! But that’s not all, BUNK Amsterdam has a secret vault plus it brews its own beer, vodka, jenever, and gin! What’s not to love? Regarding the future, the aim of BUNK is clear – to redefine hospitality by creating places for communal wonderment, and it might very well have succeeded!
