CBRE Global Investment Partners Acquires QO Hotel in Amsterdam

30 Jan 2018

CBRE Global Investment Partners (CBRE GIP) has acquired the QO Hotel Amstelkwartier in Amsterdam. The acquisition was completed by Invesco Real Estate on behalf of CBRE GIP.

The newly-developed 23-storey QO Hotel is a prime asset which features 288 rooms, conference facilities, as well as a restaurant and rooftop bar with a panoramic view of Amsterdam. The building incorporates best practice in sustainable construction and energy efficiency and the ambition is for it to become the first platinum LEED-certified hotel in Europe. 

The QO Hotel Amstelkwartier is well located in the Amstel area of Amsterdam and is easily accessible due to its excellent local transport links and proximity to Schipol Airport.

Sander van Riel, Head of Continental Europe, CBRE Global Investment Partners, said: “The acquisition of the QO Hotel Amstelkwartier is in line with a key GIP strategy – to acquire very well located and positioned hotels in liquid markets. As one of the core hotel markets in Europe and fifth most visited city in Europe, Amsterdam continues to perform well with robust market fundamentals which incorporate a relatively balanced mix of both corporate and leisure demand”.
