Ecomama allows joyful, conscious living in the heart of Amsterdam. It’s the right combination of the coziness of a community, the luxury of a hotel and meaningfulness of a social business.

Whether you are travelling with your crew and need a few beds or you're on a romantic escape, looking for some luxury while exploring the world – Ecomama offers unique and personalized accommodations and 7 room types to choose from. They all range in size, privacy and budget.

There’s plenty of communal space to get inspired, dream, meet, share & connect. A living room, fully-equipped kitchen, communal table, indoor swinging-chairs and the teepee-tent (perfect for movie-nights) – the place is yours during your stay.

Mama does green and conscious in a way that makes sense, as according to Anika Jacobs (who knows quite a bit about travelling), is no rocket science. It's about sharing and making conscious decisions in everyday life that will lead us to a more sustainable world.

Some of our facilities include: book exchange, movie lounge, fully equipped kitchen, bike rental and so on. On top of that, there's THE FIX - serving Beans Bowls Bagels & Booze .
