- Eco hotels in Amsterdam
Celebrating 10 years of Conscious, take a look at our timeline:
// We are proud! We are listed in National Geographic Traveller, Earth Collection. It is just fantastic to see that we are lined up with these amazing places that make a positive and sustainable difference and to be called “pioneer in eco-friendly tourism”. A title we will gladly hold with pride!
// We are 10 years old. Happy birthday to us. Our teenage years are calling us. What’s next? We have big plans. We’d like to expand to other cities, like The Hague, Utrecht, or even outside of the Netherlands, Copenhagen or Hamburg. Working on it!
// Conscious Hotel Museum Square gets a total renovation. It’s looking good!
// Our founders, Marco Lemmers and Sam Cohen, win ‘Best Entrepreneur of the Year’ award by Entrée. The jury loved ‘Eco-Sexy. Big Smiles.’ We do too!
// TIME Magazine calls us one of the ‘World’s Greatest Places’. Wow! Just wow!
// Restaurant Bar Kantoor opens in Westerpark. Huge park outside, big terrace, terrific food. Fully organic, of course…
// Conscious Hotel Westerpark opens, making us a happy family of four hotels. This hotel is situated in an old gas factory in the middle of Westerpark, and here we also have a restaurant and a pink café and shop.
// Conscious Hotels wins ‘Best Hotel Concept’ Award from Entrée. Not bad for an 8-year-old. Entrée Awards are renowned Dutch awards for hotels and restaurants. Best Hotel Concept of course also refers to our sustainability concept, combined with our good looks (we sound quite vain now).
// Restaurant Moer opens. Great organic food that infinitely surprises your tastebuds. We all want more Moer! Enjoy the tastiest local food in our former auto repair shop all day long. With a sparkling cava or a nice glass of organic beer, your night is complete!
// Café Sticky Fingers joins us and, after a week, we all gain at least 2kg each. This pink coffee & sweets place is instantly famous, serving the best fairchain coffee and sticky sweets to the neighbourhood and our hotel guests.
// Conscious Hotel The Tire Station opens, instantly making us a proper hotel family. We can now call ourselves a ‘hotel chain’. This third hotel will also have a restaurant and a cafe in the lobby.
// Conscious Hotel Vondelpark opens. A big baby brother for Conscious Hotel Museum Square. It is so close to the Vondelpark that we can hear the squirrels dreaming…
// Baby Conscious is born at Conscious Hotel Museum Square weighing 70,000kg. It’s the first sustainable hotel in Amsterdam: small and cosy, with a cute garden.
