Stadsvilla Mout, a renovated 18th-century patrician house, has recently opened its doors to the public as a boutique hotel in Schiedam's historic city centre.
Spread over three floors, are seventeen hotel rooms, including suites, family rooms, double rooms and an apartment that are suitable for both short and long stays. The rooms are large in design and luxurious, bright and equipped with their own pantry. The rooms are equipped with TV, handy (hotel smartphone) and cooking facilities. The larger rooms are equipped with a more spacious pantry, seating area and dining table.
For guests staying longer, a washing machine and a dryer are also available. The hotel supplies fresh local products every day with which guests can prepare their own breakfasts.
Stadsvilla Mout also has two meeting rooms which can accommodate 22 people and works of art by Greek art & fashion photographer Igor Vasiliadis adorn the hall on the first floor.
Stadsvilla Mout is housed in a national monument from 1750. The building features a marble hall, high ceilings complete with original details. The building has an extensive history. In the 18th century, it served as the residence of the patrician family Van Pelt. Later, the Volksbond, a Roman-Catholic charitable organisation moved into the building. During WOI, Belgian refugees came here to cook and eat. In the seventies, the building was home to Arcade; a famous nightclub. At a certain point, the building became abandoned.
A tribute to Schiedam
Schiedam is a great source of inspiration for the hotel. First of all, the name, 'Mout,' is inspired by the grain (malt) that is the basis for gin (jenever), a flourishing industry in the city. In fact, when in Schiedam you will find warehouses, distilleries, grain mills, waterways as well as the grain exchange. In addition, each room is named after a well-known product or company in Schiedam such as Bonte Koe (chocolate), Nolet (distillery), Molen de Walvisch (museum) and Huisman (ship installations).
Passion for historic buildings
The hotel is part of the Finehotelsandsuites.com chain, which includes Stadsvilla Hotel Mozaic in The Hague and Casa Julia in Delft. All of them are hotels with a monumental and authentic character.
Stadsvilla Mout was founded and is run by Corina Waaijer. "I was looking for a location near Rotterdam and ran into this beautiful, but unfortunately very dilapidated monument that has stood empty for 20 years. The thorough renovation, with the necessary challenges, lasted three years. My personal motivation is to transform historic buildings into special places where guests can enjoy and where they feel at home" says Corina Waaijer.
- Room prices per night range from 79 euros (small double room) to 155 euros (family room for four people) including coffee and tea, excluding breakfast.
