For SteemFest we have found a great hotel with 130 rooms available. It's called the (SteemFest) Volkshotel and has been built in the renovated former editorial offices of national newspaper "De Volkskrant" (hence the name).
The hotel is located on the south-east center side of Amsterdam very close to the River Amstel (from which the boats towards the conference venue depart) and boasts 2 clubs, a lobby cafe, obviously free wifi, three elevators, rooftop sauna's and hot-tubs with a fascinating view over the city.
This hotel is not your regular straight forward hotel. Here is the summary of Telegraph's review: (8/10 rate):
"The former offices of De Volkskrant newspaper have been given vibrant and stylish new life as an affordable hotel, with a club, restaurant, and even artists-in-residence. The rooms are thoughtfully designed, seeming more spacious than they really are. A rooftop bar-restaurant offers adventurous new-Dutch cuisine."
The Volkshotel is only 2 years old and opened it's doors beginning of July 2014 and grown in popularity ever since. It's quite extraordinair to be able to have such an availability.

We have opted for the 'Sir Standard' Rooms (Rack Rate € 149 / night):
"A double bed, a shower and toilet, what else do you need? Well, maybe a tv and a safe are a nice addition. And with 18m2 there's enough room to do the Waltz (or roly poly). Not much else to say, just the perfect kind of ‘standard’"
For this room a package price of € 285 for 3 nights per room was arranged.
How to book the € 285 / room / 3 nights - package at SteemFest Volkshotel?We have an exclusive block on 130 of 140 rooms until 12 OCTOBER 2016, be sure to book your room before that date!
