On a wet autumn day, two members of the ESC team were biking through the Vondelpark, Amsterdam’s central park. Just outside the cast iron gate exit to the right stands the Vondelkerk, one of a number venues planned for the upcoming European Shiatsu Congess in 2020. To the left is De Roos, a 19th century former residential building, and another venue we are considering for ESC 2020.

We had been dreaming of a place to stay for our shiatsu guests and found it hidden just outside the park on a little path where cars are not allowed. In a former school for domestic science lies a most charming hostel. Clean, simple, practical rooms for 4-6 people, with breakfast prepared from organic produce. The interiors are brightly coloured, with lots of light and green plants. Definitely not a standard youth hostel, and a real eyeopener for us, Stayokay Amsterdam Vondelpark lodges anyone from backpackers to whole families – and in September 2020 – a part of the European Shiatsu family!

Stayokay Vondelpark is within walking distance of all the ESC venues. A little further from the centre is Stayokay Oost.

As Amsterdam is a very popular city and hotels are usually fully booked, we urge you to think about your accommodation well in advance.

We have reserved 50 beds in shared rooms in Stayokay Vondelpark and Oost for ESC attendees. If you would like to book one of these beds, please complete the form below and you will hear back from us shortly.
