Hote Pagi is situated in the heart of Amsterdam, just between the most popular and visited places in the city center: The Rembrandt square, the Dam square and Amsterdam’s most famous shopping street, the Kalver straat. It is right in the middle of all popular tourist attractions.

The client was specific in their needs and taste, wanting to bring in the Indonesian inspired elements to the lobby in order to maximise space and provide a personalised guest experience.


Indonesian inspired

The concept came from the Dutch Indonesian influence, we researched the architecture, colour and styling of the Dutch colonial period in Indonesia. The natural wood in a variation of colours was wrapped around the space, emphasising the wall of the reception desk.

Natural Materials

All the materials we sourced were from Amsterdam so that the client had less costs in shipping. Natural wood, natural fabrics, Indonesian inspired textiles and artwork all combined take guests into an era of the Dutch history.


The interior concept has taken elements of the Dutch Cape style with the light wood and white finishes with a mix of Indonesian favour. The colours are inspired by the Indonesian spices and Cape Dutch Architecture. Natural weave baskets and touches of green come from the Indonesian and Cape Town landscape.

We appointed FIG to take on this small lobby project which they did in only 10 days to our very tight budget. We and our guests love the result. Hilary even named the hotel for us after we had internally gone through hundreds of names! She is so talented!
