WSHS is an upcoming luxury boutique hotel. Located in the oldest part of the center of Gouda, the former Weeshuis that dates back to 1599 will be transformed into a stylish sanctuary and open next spring.
In addition to the hotel, owners Sharon and Lennart van Gastel will open a restaurant and cocktail bar, all under one roof. The building’s history is reflected in the interior in a modern way. Interior designer Judith van Mourik, also known for the design for Parc Broekhuizen, imbues the design with a sense of luxury featuring several historical treasures such as Gouds Plateel and creates an elevated eclectic unity. A black and white check complements a bold colored wall, while an attention-grabbing art installation cozies up to the brass coffee bar.
