Vervoordt has created a timeless space with incredible eye for details. The aesthetics in this hotel are breathtaking and nothing less of museum worthy. PURS hotel has been created with great attention to the architecture of the old chancellery – the play of light, the old wooden floors and the marble bathrooms with amenities from Aesop are just some of the things that make PURS hotel a remarkable hotel experience.
