“The best kept secret of Amsterdam” is now no longer a secret. Booking.com chose specifically for the status and allure of the island and will be establishing its new headquarters on ODE. The offices of TomTom, Vodafone, Adyen, and other companies already provide an inflow of thousands of employees every day. There are popular restaurants and terraces for business meetings, and easily accessible parking. Visitors and tourists can effortlessly find their way to ODE as well. In addition, the 4-star DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel holds 550 rooms and suites, as well as high quality conference facilities.
Due to its unique location, attractions, and contemporary architecture, ODE offers a superb setting for a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Tenants consist of both Dutch and international brands and retail formats. Besides the range in shopping and leisure possibilities, there are also numerous Dutch and international restaurants, varying in style from casual to haute cuisine. Due to the easy accessibility of the island and the parking garage, visitors and tourists can effortlessly find their way to ODE as well.
Over the course of the past years, Oosterdoks island has developed into a dynamic place where hundreds of people come to work, live, and socialize. It has become a modern part of the Amsterdam city center. It is therefore not surprising that there are several popular restaurants and cafés, many with a great view overlooking the Oosterdok, the IJ River, and the historic city center of Amsterdam. Besides the major tourist attractions and easily accessible Oosterdoks parking garage, visitors and tourists can also find several delightful options to satisfy their culinary needs.
City Council member of land administration Eric van der Burg: “Oosterdoks island is a beautiful, central place to live, work, and relax near to Amsterdam Central Station. We are pleased that we will be able to create sustainable public and residential areas here. Facilities such as the Conservatory, the Public Library, a hotel, restaurants, and cafés make this area attractive to a wide audience. We are also pleased that we have been able to provide Booking.com, a company that was initiated in Amsterdam, with a location that can accommodate their growth and innovative working style. Connections and mixing of functions comprise the basis of this project.”
ODE is easily accessible – especially considering that it is located in the heart of Amsterdam. All forms of transportation are available from the nearby Island Station.
