“A unique hideaway in the cultural and historic district of Gouda, “The City of Cheese”, which lies perfectly in the heart of the Netherlands!”
Next to the famed Jerusalem Chapel, this 16th-century orphanage is now home to 25 intimate, atypical and fairly eccentric suites. With elegant original details and a wink to the 21st century, Weeshuis Gouda celebrates the discrete charm of this city nestled in the country’s “Green Heart” and in easy reach of The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht. Carefully conceived to underscore the city’s rich heritage, it is not only the old and authentic that you will find at this design hotel. A voyage through the ages, it blends beautifully with the soul of Gouda’s historic district — its maze of narrow streets, bridges and canals, its fascinating museum, its cheesemakers and its sweet aroma of hot syrup and waffles in the air. Delighting your senses with world-class dining, chef Martijn Kajuiter’s fresh creations and focus on local ingredients add the final touch to your stay at this magical place.
