Dutch real estate developer Being Development has begun construction on a Yotel in Amsterdam-Noord, the Netherlands. 

The hotel, designed by Studioninedots, Delva Landscaping Architects and DesignAgency, is scheduled to open in summer 2019 in the Buiksloterham district of the city. Ballast Nedam construction conglomerates Heddes and Ursem Modulaire Bouwsystemen will construct the new 202-room hotel on the waterfront. The partners will develop the upcoming Yotel Amsterdam to meet sustainability standards set by the Circular Buiksloterham Manifesto, which aims to develop the neighborhood into a sustainable district. 

Yotel Amsterdam follows this year’s additions to the brand pipeline in Istanbul, Turkey and Glasgow, Scotland. Yotel signed a management contract with IGA, the constructor and operator of Istanbul New Airport, to open the 451-room hotel inside the main terminal building. Meanwhile, Yotel’s second hotel in Scotland and fifth in the UK is slated to open in the center of Glasgow with 256 guestrooms in November 2019. 

Virtual Event

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


The new Yotel will be Amsterdam’s second Yotel. The first is a YotelAir at Amsterdam Schiphol, which opened within the airport with 55 guestrooms in early 2008.

The project also will be Being Development's second hotel under construction. The 650-room Nhow Amsterdam RAI hotel opening in the second half of this year is slated to be the largest hotel in the Netherlands. NH Hotel Group will operate the 25-story hotel under a lease agreement.

Being Development's pipeline for the Netherlands also includes the Aloft Utrecht, which is currently under development. The developer is partnering with Lakenvelder Investment Group to develop the 224-room hotel in the Leidsche Rijn Center. 

Construction on the hotel designed by Arizona-based OZ Architects began this summer. The Aloft Utrect—the first WELL Certified hotel in the world—is expected to open in 2020. Hotel management company Odyssey Hotel Group will operate the hotel under a long-term lease and a franchise agreement with Marriott International.
