Hooray! It’s our 3rd birthday


On June 27th 2014 Volkshotel opened its doors to welcome all. Let’s celebrate by bringing an ode to all things three. Find out where your 3rd eye is, which Dutch sayings have the number 3 in it or what room 303 looks like. Ready? 3… 2… 1…


Volkshotel has 3 managers, whose names all start with the letter J. They get nicknamed the 3J’s. Which is also a famous Dutch band of folk singers from Volendam.


The meaning of ‘threesome’ according to the dictionary: ‘Something in which 3 persons participate, at certain games.’ Let’s keep it at that.


Traffic lights have 3 colours. Red, orange and the beloved green. At Werkplaats you’ll also find red and green lighting. We never realised that this could cause confusion for at least one sleepy neighbour in the early mornings. She’d send us an email saying that while she was waiting with her bicycle to cross the street, she only payed attention to the red lights at Werkplaats. Not noticing when the traffic lights had already turned green.


This is Bobby Rose. She’s 3 years old and was present at the opening of Volkshotel in 2014. In her mommy’s belly that is. Nadia & Thijs are her mom and dad. Who were a part of Volkshotel in the early days.

In Dutch there are many sayings that involve the number 3. Here are 3:

  • 3 keer scheepsrecht
    • Literal translation: 3 times ship right.
    • Meaning: After 3 times, you get it right.
  • Driewerf hoera!
    • Literal translation: 3 times hooray!
    • Meaning: a 3 time cheer when it’s someone’s birthday.
  • Dikke lul, 3 bier
    • Literal translation: fat cock, 3 beers.
    • Meaning: I’m never ever ever ever going to do that.

This is Volkshotel bike number 3. If that saddle could talk… Want to rent it? Ask our reception for more info.


Some people take cycling to another level with this tandem bike, fit for 3.


A triangle has 3 angles and comes in many forms. Don’t be square.

Your 3rd eye is hidden in the middle of your forehead. It’s kind of your sixth sense. Without seeing dead people.


On June 11th, talented street artists take their talent to the stage. For one day Volkshotel turns into Busker’s Inn. Where street musicians check in, take stage and get the spotlight they deserve. Here are 3 musicians of the band Trikosis. Who’ll show off their skills at Volkshotel on June 11th.


Some people have 3 nipples. They’re an automatic member of the exclusive Tripple Nipple club.


This is room 303. It’s located on the 3rd floor of Volkshotel.
