In our award-winning boutique hotel Torel Avantgarde you can live the Miles Davis experience.

The Executive Royal Miles Davis Room, with bathtub and a spacious terrace spectacularly overlooking the river, embodies the artist.


The artist is represented through the blue colour of the room, referring to his best-known album “Kind of Blue”, which is considered a revolutionary milestone in the history of Jazz.

The room's decor is also based on her laid-back personality and his musical career, with elements such as vinyl records and a trumpet.

Meet the artist Miles Davis...


Miles Dewey Davis III was an American composer and trumpeter, one of the most innovative jazz musicians of the 20th century

Over more than 50 years of career, Miles Davis had used the trumpet in a melodic and introspective style, making his sound unique and personal.

Some say that, after his death, Jazz was not able to grow any further.


Songs in which he participated:

  • Kind of blue;
  • Blue in green;
  • Flamenco sketches;
  • Senate I;
  • All blues;
  • And;
  • If I were a bell;
  • Bye, bye, blackbird;
  • It never entered my mind.
