Students of the Hotel Management School Maastricht in the Netherlands can look forward to learning within a contemporary, creative environment since the recent opening of its new Teaching Hotel.
The Chateau Bethlehem, a converted castle has been redesigned by myriad Dutch design firms including Studio Job, Makkink & Bey and Richard Hutten. Designers were given free reign to create their own spatial concepts in the room of their choice. Bath Room by Richard Hutten is one of three that follow a specific theme blurring the lines between fantasy and reality, rest and play.
The school, which teaches hospitality and hotel management holds the hotel on campus - open to the public. The 26 rooms, bar, restaurant and meeting rooms act as training ground where guests are encouraged to interact with the students to better their experience.
The opening of the Chateau follows that of Kirkwood Community College teaching hotel in late summer of this year.
