The QO in Amsterdam opened up its doors. In all its beauty, it is a hotel that blends luxury with sustainability. Read on to find out more about this special hotel in Amsterdam.
QO Amsterdam – A sustainable hotel experience
QO Amsterdam is not like the typical hotel you think of. Staying at the QO will let you experience their unique ways of doing things, considering the fact that they combined luxury with sustainability. With a circular approach to every aspect of their hotel, they are setting a new standard in the hospitality industry. In greater detail, instead of the linear approach of our society, taking, using and disposing, it is of great importance for QO to reuse and recycle products.
The most visible of all aspects is the façade. On the exterior of the hotel, you will be able to see fully responsive thermal panels that adapt and react to the climate. Furthermore, this will control the temperature inside the hotel. But it does not stop here; they used the same mentality when building the hotel. Speaking of, a big part of the concrete of the building is made up from Amsterdam’s iconic old Shell building. Moreover, the water utilized in the showers or in the sinks is always reused for flushing the toilets. And, to mention one more sustainable practice; the power is reduced immensely by making sure the rooms are light-flooded naturally with the help of floor-to-ceiling windows.
Thus, another advantage of this? You will have a breathtaking 360-degree view of Amsterdam! Definitely, something you want to check out during the day but also during the night. Hence, it is truly magical to cherish the view over the city when it gets dark and Amsterdam´s households turn on their lights.
