The Lloyd Hotel Amsterdam

Lloyd Hotel Amsterdam outsideOriginally built in 1921, Lloyd Hotel was a lodging house for people waiting for a ship abroad, often migrating. Located near the Amsterdam harbor, it lost its function with the development of air travel. During many years the building served as an artists community. Only in the last decades the port of Amsterdam moved away from the city and the Eastern Docklands area became a scene of the rapid urban development. The whole new quarter of Amsterdam has been built and Lloyd Hotel has been restored.
