The nhow hotel or as my niece Nina calls it 'Nientje hotel', because there is a big N on the building. 

The building consists of three huge floating triangles that are shifted from each other. 

A design by architect Reinier de Graaf (1964) OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture). 

The hotel is 91 meters high, has 24 floors and 650 rooms. 

The shape of the hotel is inspired by the high advertising column "het Signaal" stands

in front of the RAI (Bicycle and Automotive Industry) event, conference and exhibition center. 

The advertising column (1961) was designed by the artist Dick Elffers (1910-1990).

In 2015, the advertising column and the Europahal were designated as government monuments.
