It offers an on-site restaurant and bar, “FRITZ's FRAU FRANZI” uniting casual extravagance with top-class cuisine by Benjamin Kriegel.

The DNA: The newly minted The Fritz is a textbook example of what happens when a single agency takes control of the entirety of a project – from the interior design right down to the design of the room keys, table linen and brand identity – to create a cohesive whole. The individuality of the property is telegraphed at check-in, the process taking place at the bar. Says Vivian van Schagen, the creative director of the Amsterdam-based The Invisible Party, ‘This is the sweetly nostalgic, Wes Anderson version of a fancy hotel. We wanted to create a place where locals could come for lunch, dinner, drinks and music, and where travellers could enjoy a great meal without leaving the hotel.’ (Wallpaper Magazine)
