Famous Rotterdam Cube Houses become new Stayokay hostel
[INDENT]On Wednesday, 24 March 2010, Dutch hostel chain Stayokay will officially open a brand new hostel in part of the famous Cube Houses complex in Rotterdam. The houses were designed by the Dutch architect Piet Blom and were built between 1982 and 1984. The unique architecture has been an attraction for tourists from the Netherlands and abroad for 25 years now. In December 2009, the Cube Houses became the most modern of Rotterdam’s listed buildings.
Stayokay is eighty years old and will be celebrating its anniversary with the official opening of Stayokay Rotterdam. Rotterdam’s mayor, Ahmed Aboutaleb, will be unveiling a Cube House named after him in festive spirit. A special two-person room with private entrance has been built in this separate house on stilts.
