Your Eco Hotel in Amsterdam

You know you are here when your eye catches a scenic 10-storey building overlooking the serene horizon of IJmeer lake. You will see yourself basking in the sun at the waterside terrace, 'watching the ships roll in' from the lobby lounge, or savouring a local delicacy under the green ceiling of Restaurant FIVE

Our new Amsterdam hotel has 195 rooms, all of which are fully powered by nature. Thanks to our groundbreaking natural ventilation system a quiet and relaxing night is guaranteed.

Stunning views, surprise gigs and signature cocktails await you at the emblematic Wind Sky Bar. A unique location in modern district IJburg to meet up with your friends and relatives or to organize an event against an environmental friendly background.

What Good Life is Made Of

Sustainability is our driving force and the compass on which we make our decisions. What might be a distant future for most, is in the Four Elements Hotel Amsterdam a reality.

Fresh air, fresh food, zero waste and undeniable quality are the cornerstones of our ambitions. It is what good life is made of, and good life is our promise to you.

So if you are looking for a cool hotel in Amsterdam here we are.

Where Thought Goes, Energy Flows

The Four Elements Hotel Amsterdam uses gravity, wind and sunlight to form a natural air conditioning system. It is the first hotel in the world to do so. The concept of transforming the building into a ‘climate machine’ is based on the natural ventilation system found in termite mounds. 

This concept is the brainchild of Dr. Bronsema and is the backbone of the hotel: providing fresh air, heating, cooling and energy, with excess thermal energy being stored underground.


Here you can see the services we provide and learn more about them.

Book a Room

All 195 rooms offer a revitalizing, healthy and allergy friendly environment. All are fully powered by renewable energy with the wind and sun providing for a natural and refreshing air-conditioning system. Down to earth aesthetics are graced by unique small-space design, calming neutral colours and clear lines. Each room features a desk, a flat-screen TV and a private bathroom with shower. All selected materials are reclaimed or recycled and allergy-free tested including the linen. A set of eco bio cosmetics in every bathroom awaits our guests. The salvaged timber floors are ideal for barefoot walking and daydreaming.

Hold an Event

Four Elements Hotel Amsterdam provides 7 different spaces in total, each with a unique sustainable character, but all of them have the same exquisite, monumental atmosphere. Our meeting rooms can accommodate approximately 200 people. 

Meeting by the water or on a lake: water has a calming effect. Enjoy the expansive views and let your creativity flow.

Restaurant FIVE

While the chefs might be the stars of restaurants these days, it’s the equally ‘gram-worthy interiors that always set the stage. You’re essentially dining in an elegant greenhouse when you take a table at Restaurant FIVE, which serves up seasonal farm to table dishes that combine rustic Dutch fare with Mediterranean influences. The restaurant is a greenhouse, and a garden oasis all in one, decked out with a mix of industrial and earthy materials. Enjoy a delicious dinner in the stylish restaurant, with its open kitchen and fantastic view of the harbor of IJburg.

The hotel is very nice and the staff was very friendly! We had a balcony room but it is too chilly in March to properly use it. It would be nice in the warmer months to actually be able to sit on the balcony, since there is no furniture there. The rooms were overall nice, just a tad bit chilly too. It would have also been nice if the cleaning staff left more coffee pads for the machine (but I'm just an avid coffee drinker). The sky lounge was very nice, the view and the drinks are amazing! I was surprised that you can't smoke on the balcony but you can smoke on the sky lounge balcony.

Hier 1 nacht verbleven i.v.m. vlucht vanaf Schiphol. Prachtig hotel, erg smakelijk ingericht, zowel de algemene ruimtes als de kamers.

Vriendelijk personeel en uitgebreid ontbijt. Wij waren er op een woensdag in maart en toen was het parkeren onder het hotel geen probleem. Dat is prijzig (20 euro) maar je kunt er ook voor kiezen om je auto aan de weg te zetten, dan is het 's avonds/'s nachts gratis.

Prachtig hotel, heel sfeervol. Heerlijke bedden en mooie kamers. Ook totaal geen last van geluiden van andere hotelgasten. Ontbijt was ook super. Uitgebreid aanbod en lekker vers. Met het openbaar vervoer sta je zo in het bruisende centrum van Amsterdam. Al met al een aanrader.

Sehr modernes Hotel mit tollem Ausblick und guter Anbindung. Das Frühstück ist ganz große Klasse!!

Winziges Manko: meine Freundin meinte, das Licht im Zimmer reicht nicht, um sich ordentlich zu schminken. Und Parken ist sowohl im Hotel als auch an der Straße recht teuer. Aber ist eben Amsterdam, da gehört das ja fast dazu.

4 nuits passées dans cet hôtel. Petit-déjeuner varié (sucré et salé). Chambre correcte et bien aménagée.

Localisation de l'hôtel un peu excentrée mais 15min de tram suffisent à rejoindre la gare centrale. Nous cherchions justement à nous éloigner du centre et c'était parfait. Avec une vue magnifique de la chambre et du bar situé au dernier étage.

L'hôtel est très calme.
