Candy HouseBy Hans van Bentem
Welcome to the Candy House, where one classic story is transformed into a two-story building full of colorful delight. Over the top decorations in ceramic and sculptured wood lure in whoever gets lost in the urban forest that is Rotterdam. This room represents all the sweet temptations a modern day hedonists may desire. From cookie windows and chocolate stucco, to more adult treats such as ‘rave sweets’ and liquor bottles.
It’s Hansel and Gretel on steroids, a chemical fairytale, or an average weekend for Dutch youngsters if you buy into stereotypes about our country some like to advertise. One thing is certain, no other hotel in the world has a room like this.
