About this accommodation

This magnificent water tower stands as a historic relic of the "Koninklijke Plateelfabriek Zuid-Holland" (1898 to 1965) in Gouda. Originally serving as a water reservoir to boost firefighting efforts, this 1920s tower has undergone a complete renovation and now offers guests the unique experience of staying in the smallest residential tower in the Netherlands.

Step inside the tower and be captivated by its interior, perfectly in harmony with the century-old structure. The entrance leads you to a well-equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, sink, and electric stove. On the first floor, you'll find a spacious bathroom with a toilet and shower. Ascend the beautiful steel spiral staircase with old wooden steps to the cosy lounge area, furnished with a comfortable sofa and a TV. French doors open onto a wide balcony, inviting you to bask in the afternoon sun. Finally, climb to the tower bedroom, where a double bed awaits. From here, four large windows offer a breathtaking view of the square, a glimpse of Gouda's harbor, and the charming streets of Koningshof, all visible right from your bed. Unwind in this comfortable space, perhaps enjoy a film after a delightful day exploring the city centre of Gouda.

During your stay, you can enjoy unlimited coffee, tea, and water. The booking includes a bottle of fine wine, and if you find it to your liking, you have the option to purchase additional bottles from our exquisite selection. A light self-service breakfast is also provided, featuring orange juice, crackers, gingerbread, cold cuts, cheese spread, jam, and chocolate sprinkles—enough to start your day. Additionally, there is a 1-pan electric stove and two small pans available for heating up any food you bring along. Of course, you can also explore nearby dining options or have food delivered right to your doorstep.

The water tower serves as an excellent base for discovering Gouda and the surrounding region. Located in a pleasant and peaceful neighbourhood, it's within walking distance of the train station and the charming old town. There, you'll find a wide array of restaurants, shops, and the bustling Gouda market. Embark on a bike ride to explore the picturesque "Green Heart" region or take day trips to neighbouring cities such as Oudewater, Utrecht, Rotterdam, or The Hague.

Please note:
One day prior to your arrival, you will receive a personal pin code to access the tower.
Kindly be aware that the tower features a steep staircase, which may pose challenges for individuals with mobility issues reaching the tower bedroom.
