Built in 1891, the Burgerziekenhuis is a former hospital that is located on Linnaeusstraat near the Oosterpark, in Amsterdam. The building was designed by Van Gendt, an architect also known for designing the Concertgebouw. The building is characterised by high ceilings, high windows, an amazing, authentic stairwell. Behind the building there is a peaceful city garden, which was part of the former hospital. Johan Cruijff was born in the building in 1947.

After the hospital closed in the 1980s, the building was renovated and until early 2009, served as an office building with desk facilities for the Oost-Watergraafsmeer district authority. Aedes Real Estate purchased the building in 2006, renovations commenced in 2009 and lasted until 2011. The monumental main building has been fully restored, and the ‘wing’ (established in 1970) has been demolished and replaced by a more fitting new construction.

The building has been given a new designated use: a four star hotel with 125 rooms, currently operating under the name ‘The Manor’. The hotel consists of a bar, an Italian restaurant ‘Enoteca’, a wedding room, conference rooms and beautiful terrace with a garden view.
