We recently made a return visit to the Lloyd Hotel in Amsterdam, a creatively designed hotel and 'Cultural Embassy' that also showcases contemporary art and cultural projects. A surreal combination of art school and boutique hotel, it's full of surprises. I loved the hand painted signage and wayfinding graphics (by Victor P. Wiertz) and the hidden tea cupboards in the corridors (more pics here). A great place to stay for an interesting break in Amsterdam - there's a pretty accurate review here.
