To start off, there is the neighborhood. We are situated smack dab in the middle of Amsterdam East. Here begins everything that the rest of the city will catch up on only next year. You can park your car in the large Q-Park underneath the building, and the Muiderpoort and Amstel train stations are just around the corner.
Then we have the building of Q-Factory itself. Here everything and everyone comes together: artists, musicians, tourists and the locals. Because of all the activities in the concert halls, the practice rooms, the café and the creative spaces, the building is filled with a vibe that we think is unique to us.
Third is the energy, and then we don’t mean all the creative energy. No, we mean the actual energy used by you to charge your phone and which heats up your room. It’s a bit of a technical story, but our building has a GSHP-installation which stores heat and coldness to be later used as heating or cooling. This saves a lot of energy. Much of our furniture is recycled (which is just a fancy way of saying it’s 2nd-hand). We also prevent a lot of unnecessary waste by not using single-piece packaging for soaps for example. More could be said still, but what it boils down to is that we’re a hotel with just a tiny little carbon footprint.
All this combined could possibly make you miss out on the rest of the city during your stay. That would be a shame, but at the same time it would also be a reason to come back. Then you’d just grab one of our slick Van Moof bikes, ready to explore the city after all.
