The Hans Brinker Budget Hotel, Amsterdam

Not since the jokey Volvo commercials where they said ‘Volvo, they’re boxy but good’ in the film Crazy People, has anyone ever been quite so honest with their promotional material.

You get the idea from their introductory paragraph which reads “The Hans Brinker Budget Hotel has been proudly disappointing travellers for forty years. Boasting levels of comfort comparable to a minimum-security prison, the Hans Brinker also offers some plumbing and an intermittently open canteen serving a wide range of dishes based on runny eggs.”

And it just gets funnier and funnier as you read on.

I’m almost tempted to try it out. Almost.

  1. This is absolutely brilliant – especially the film on the green eco-friendly features. I think we may have all this carbon-technology wrong… this is the way forward!
