The Vermeer Room in historical Delft
© Hotel de Emauspoort
The 'Vermeer Room' in Hotel de Emauspoort has a picturesque view of one of the most painted places in Delft. The historical town of Delft, the city of Johannes Vermeer, William of Orange, Hugo de Groot (Grotius), Anthoni van Leeuwenhoek, the Delft Blue pottery & tiles, the royal Tomb in the New Church and picturesque canals is worth a visit. If Johannes Vermeer could return to his place of birth, he would soon feel at home in his very own 'Vermeer Room'.
