The Tire Station - Facts you might like to know
For those who like to eat, Sticky Fingers, our eco patisserie, and MOER, our organic restaurant, are here to tempt your tastebuds in healthy and satisfying ways. If your first question is ‘what’s the WiFi password?’ you’ll be happy to know we have high speed WiFi up to 450 MBps. If you need to book somewhere for a meeting, we can help. The Wubbo Room (named after Dutch astronaut, Wubbo Ockels) may not be in outer space but it’s high-tech and seats up to 60 bored attendees. Our elevator – we call him Mr Elevator - has a personality, which makes those short journeys seem a little less claustrophobic. Oh and we have large, flatscreen 40” and 50” satellite TVs if you prefer watching TV to long games of chess or singing light opera in your room at night.
The Tire Station - Sustainable stuff
We’re an eco designer hotel and to prove it we have solar panels on the roof just hoping for a little bit of Dutch sunshine. The rooftops are green, which means they support a diverse range of plant life, kind of like a mini jungle, in which the occasional pigeon lands appearing like a god among the tiny wildlife. All our lighting is low heat, low energy, bright LED which stands for Low Energy Doorbells from which are lights are made. As well as capturing wind energy we have ATES (Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage) sustainable energy system. It uses naturally occurring warmer water found many metres below Amsterdam to feed a system that regulates heat and cold, which sounds like it shouldn’t work but actually does brilliantly.
The Tire Station – A little bit about our rooms
Our rooms come in a very wide range of colours – white, pink and a sort-of-bluish - enabling us to match them to our guests’ personalities after a short psychological test. We have 112 of them the last time we counted and they also come in different sizes – double, twin and triple. For those who like details we have 16 triple rooms each containing 3 single beds, 90cm x 200cm. 85 double rooms containing 1 big double bed, 180cm x 200cm. And 22 twin rooms each with 2 single beds, 90cm x 200cm. All our beds are very comfortable Royal Dutch Auping beds suitable for both right and left-handed guests. Loud snorers can be relocated to Vondelpark for a small extra charge on request from their partners.
The Tire Station – The Wubbo
The Wubbo meeting room is suitable for meetings up to 60 people. It suits product launches, off-sites, team building exercises and those meetings where nobody knows exactly why they are there but everyone agrees with the boss it was a good idea. We have a high-tech beamer projector, a big presentation screen and state-of-the-art audio equipment plus a 55” LED TV for smaller meetings or watching the golf when nobody’s looking. With a pantry full of beverages and a coffee machine all you need supply are your own pie charts. For those who love to write on whiteboards we have a 16m x 3m wall which most organizations find a delightful challenge to fill. There’s also a moss wall which is there to remind attendees of the slow pace of organizational change and the need to innovate. Daylight entry occurs through 3 roof windows so, vampires, please hold your shareholder meetings elsewhere.
