British ‘City Living’ to open Student Hotel in Amsterdam

DutchAmsterdam.nl — Amsterdam will soon see its first private student hotel.

British company City Living is building the 625-room complex in the Jan van Galenstraat at the edge of the city center. It is renovating the former offices of the Elsevier publishing concern, adding new construction in the process.

City Living provides accommodation for people who are still studying or in the first two years of their professional life. The company already serves over 18.000 students in England. It also operates a student hotel in Liège, Belgium and is working on a similar property in Brussels.

In the Netherlands additional student hotels are planned for Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, Groningen, Nijmegen, Eindhoven and Leiden.

Up-scale student living

All City Living rooms are fully furnished and have en-suite showers or bathrooms. Rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi broadband Internet access and a flat screen TV.

Common areas in include modern kitchen facilities, living rooms, study areas, vending machines and in-house laundry facilities.

All areas are decorated with designer furniture.

Each building has its own, in-house manager along with a cleaning staff and handymen.

The buildings are secured with 24-hour CCTV and an electronic entry system.

Rental rates

Weekly rental prices are expected to range from 95 euro to 150 euro — based on a 9-12 month rental contract. Amsterdam news daily Het Parool says those rates do not include service- and energy costs, but says that each renter will receive a free bike.
