Hi, my name is Irma Bucker, born and raised in Amsterdam, the wonderful city with which I still am madly in love.
In 1977, my parents started the Asterisk hotel which had only about 11 rooms at that time. Over the years they were able to expand the hotel, and nowadays we have 40 rooms in total.
When my father died, my former husband and I continued the hotel and moved in, so Lisa and Johan have lived in the hotel since they were toddlers. Many years later we divorced and I continued the hotel on my own. A few months later, Johan helped me out, enjoyed working in the hotel and never left. To complete the family team, Lisa joined us as well and the two of them brought new spirit into the hotel. We combined experience with enthousiasm as well as our different qualities to build a strong team and transform hotel Asterisk to a 3 star superior hotel.
Nowadays, all of our rooms have been renovated and all of them are accesible by elevator. The renovation of the lobby and lounge area have completed the make over into a boutique style hotel in which you will feel comfortable and at home immediately after entering the front door.
Now all of this has been done, it is time for Lisa and Johan to run the hotel and for me to only help out. So when Corona will be history, my future will contain spending my time with all of my favourite activities like baking bread, walking, playing golf, swimming and making long bicycle tours. I just cann’t wait to bike through Europe with my present husband Kees again. At home I spend a lot of time reading, trying to improve my handwriting, crocheting amigurumis and solving cryptogams with Kees.
Looking forward to welcome you in our hotel,
