In cooperation with architect Jeroen Hoorn, Frame Vastgoed, as an investor and developer, has given Slaakhuys the luster it deserves after years of vacancy. The well-known national monument once served as the editorial and printing company of daily newspaper Het Vrije Volk and has been one of Rotterdam's newest hotspots since October 2019. The Slaak Rotterdam is now a luxury boutique hotel with 74 rooms and with restaurant & bar Didot34 it is also an asset for Rotterdam and anyone who is not a hotel guest.
The 'Rotterdam Architectuurprijs' puts the best buildings in the city in the spotlight every year. This independent prize is an initiative of the municipality of Rotterdam, organized by Architectuur Instituut Rotterdam (AIR). The best buildings are awarded the RAP jury prize and the RAP audience prize, which are intended for the winning teams of client, designer and builder.
From the 47 submissions, the jury selected ten buildings - including the Slaakhuys - that are eligible for both prizes. From November 1 up to and including December 1, anyone who cares about the architecture of Rotterdam can vote for the RAP audience prize.

Hotel The Slaak Rotterdam has opened its doors in the monumental Slaakhuys in Kralingen. The accompanying restaurant with bar Didot34 is also open. As the owner of the Slaakhuys, Frame Vastgoed has completed the redevelopment complex.
Frame Vastgoed has worked with architect Jeroen Hoorn for more than two years on the restoration, renovation and expansion of the Slaakhuys. Whereas in April 2018 the Lidl supermarket in the former printing company of the newspaper Vrij Volk already opened, the rest of the national monument has now also been given a new purpose.
Hotel The Slaak Rotterdam is a design boutique hotel under the Tribute Portfolio label of Marriott Hotels. The Slaak Rotterdam has 74 spacious hotel rooms, restaurant & bar Didot34, two meeting rooms and fitness Studio34. There is a public parking garage with 46 parking spaces under the hotel and the supermarket.
Completely in line with the architecture of the building from 1954, the 1950s style has been implemented in the interior of the hotel. The varied colors, wallpaper with prints and the use of materials such as marble, brass and wood give a feeling of warmth and luxury.
Tasting atmosphere at The Slaak Rotterdam is of course not only reserved for hotel guests; visitors can also visit Restaurant & Bar Didot34 for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. Paul John de Jong, commercial director at Frame Vastgoed, is therefore proud to speak about a new hotspot in town: "We think it's great that we have been able to restore an iconic building like the Slaakhuys in this place. We see it as an honorable addition and new hotspot for the city of Rotterdam. "
