Hello, my travel giraffes! How are you? Summer is coming to an end shortly which seems insane to me but nothing lasts forever which got me thinking. I’ve done a travel bucket list before of which city or country I would like to visit but, I’ve never done one for places I’d like to stay at. So I’ve decided to do a regular hotel bucket list and this month’s feature hotel is the QO Hotel in Amsterdam.
Hotel Bucket list, OQ Hotel
I stumbled across this hotel when I was looking for accommodation for my boss in my day job. I immediately fell in love with everything about this hotel.
Firstly, the OQ Hotel is a sustainable hotel which I’ve never had the pleasure of staying in before but would love to pop that cherry there. They house a greenhouse on their roof-top which produces food that is served in their restaurant. The interesting bit is that they refer to the hotel as a ‘hotel that lives’. Essentially, the hotel has been created to reduce the impact on the environment.
Secondly, it is in Amsterdam which is a city I thoroughly enjoy visiting.
The QO Hotel has a few suites that are all beautifully decorated in a modern yet, warm interior. They are spacious, filled with light and some even come with stand-alone bathtubs. A winner in my books to be honest! The rooms are absolutely stunning and scream high tech luxury.
The room features; from the lighting to curtains are all controlled by an IPad.
The QO Hotel seems to have a nice balance between luxury and sustainability which can be really difficult to achieve. It is admirable in this current climate of overpriced luxury, that they have managed to create high-end quality which actually gives value for money.
There are other hotels on my hotel bucket list, which I will be sharing on a monthly basis (hopefully) and I’ve provided enough to wet your appetite. Do you have a hotel bucket list? Will you stay at the QO Hotel? Who knows, maybe I’ll see you there one day 😉
Remember to leave me a comment and thanks for stopping by. I have a weekly newsletter and if you’re new here, be sure to sign up for it.
Until next time, be well!
