Any hotel that has undergone a serious and extensive sustainability certification, is welcome on iLoveEcoHotels.com without further ado.
A booking site with a heart!
We believe that tourism, one of the world´s largest and fastest-growing industries, has the potential to be a power for good. In order for that to happen, we need more facts, more transparency and less green-washing. iLoveEcoHotels.com aims to be a tool for the sustainability-conscious traveler, who values commitment and responsible actions equally to a good experience and a comfortable stay.
At iLoveEcoHotels.com, we practice what we preach! 10% of our commissions go to supporting The Travel Foundation – an independent charity working to ensure tourism benefits people and the environment in destinations.
-We recognize that it´s hard to navigate as a consumer in an online world where green-washing is not better controlled and limited.
-We understand the challenges facing hotel owners, trying to maintain their personal expression and financial health in a world dominated by huge online travel agencies and search engines going hand-in-hand to exact the maximum amount of bookings and highest possible commissions.
-And we understand that it´s hard to take in account all aspects of sustainability when traveling – what is more important to you: organic/healthy food, social commitment, a responsible environmental approach? Or all 3 – and more?
We have allied ourselves with the most trustworthy authorities within sustainable travel, and all hotel operators on our site live up to all criteria pertaining to the triple bottom line, as defined by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.
So dear hotel owner: we will support your business when you want it, and not cannibalize on your business when you prefer to stand on your own. And we will not charge you exorbitant commission rates for our services. We promise that you will only be in the company of dedicated sustainable hotels operators such as yourself – a community of tips, advice and best-practice sharing across the world, to the continued growth of responsible tourism.
We have offices all over Europe and we look forward to explore market opportunities with you.

By using ILE’s Services hereunder using our website www.iloveecohotels.com or any of our applications through whatever platform and/or by completing a reservation, you agree to the Terms.
1. Scope of the Service
Through the ILE website www.iloveecohotels.com ILE provide an online booking site through which temporary accommodation which fulfill the ILE standards can advertise their rooms for reservation, and through which visitors to the website can make reservations of such temporary accommodation.
By making a reservation the user enter into a legally binding contractual relationship with the accommodation provider at which you book. ILE act solely as an intermediary between you and the accommodation, sending the details of your reservation to the relevant accommodation provider and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the accommodation provider.
The information that ILE disclose on www.iloveecohotels.com and anywhere else regarding the accommodation is based on the information provided by the accommodation providers. They are fully responsible for updating all rates, availability and other information which is displayed on our website. ILE cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can ILE be held responsible for any errors, any interruptions of our website or otherwise, inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Each accommodation provider remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including the rates and availability) displayed on our website.
All prices on the www.iloveecohotels.com website are per room for your entire stay and are displayed including VAT and all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes), unless stated differently on our website or the confirmation email. Applicable taxes may be charged by the accommodation in the event of a no-show or cancellation fee.
3. Privacy and cookies
Please have a look at our privacy and cookies policy for further information.
4. Free of charge/Donations
Our service is free of charge to the guests.
Accommodation providers pay a small commission to us after the guest has stayed at and paid the accommodation.
If ILE has agreed to give a donation, the donation will be paid by us and the accommodation provider.
5. Payment/Credit card or bank transfer
Certain accommodation providers offer the opportunity for reservations to be paid (wholly or partly and as required under the payment policy of the accommodation) to the accommodation provider during the reservation process by means of secure online payment (all to the extent offered and supported by your bank). Payment is safely processed from your credit/debit card or bank account to the bank account of the accommodation provider through a third party payment processor. Please be advised that final payment will occur at the hotel. Please also note that when paying with credit cards fees may apply in accordance to national merchant and credit card terms. All debit cards are free of charge.
For certain rates or special offers, please note that accommodation providers may require that payment is made upfront by wire transfer (if available) or by credit card, and therefore your credit card may be pre-authorised or charged (sometimes without any option for refund) upon making the reservation. Please check the room details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
In the event of credit card fraud or unauthorised use of your credit card by third parties, most banks and credit card companies bear the risk and cover all the charges resulting from such fraud or misuse, which may sometimes be subject to a deductible (usually set at EUR 50 (or the equivalent in your local currency)). In the event that your credit card company or bank charges the deductible from you because of unauthorised transactions resulting from a reservation made on our website, we will pay you this deductible, up to an aggregate amount of EUR 50 (or the equivalent in your local currency). In order to indemnify you, please make sure that you report this fraud to your credit card provider (in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures) and contact us immediately by email). Please state 'credit card fraud' in the subject line of your email and provide us with evidence of the charged deductible (e.g. policy of the credit card company). This indemnification only applies to credit card reservations made using www.iloveecohotels.com's secure server and the unauthorised use of your credit card resulted through our default or negligence and through no fault of your own while using the secure server.
6. Cancellation and no-show
By making a reservation with an accommodation provider, you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of that accommodation provider, and to any additional terms and conditions of the accommodation provider that may apply to your reservation or during your stay. The general cancellation and no-show policy of each accommodation provider is made available on our website on the accommodation information pages, during the reservation procedure and in the confirmation email. Please note that certain rates or special offers are not eligible for cancellation or change. Applicable city/tourist tax may still be charged by the accommodation in the event of a no-show or charged cancellation. Please check the room details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation. Please note that a reservation which requires down payment or (wholly or partly) prepayment may be cancelled (without a prior notice of default or warning) insofar the relevant (remaining) amount(s) cannot be collected in full on the relevant payment date in accordance with the relevant payment policy of the accommodation and the reservation. Late payment, wrong bank, debit or credit card details, invalid credit/debit cards or insufficient funds are for your own risk and account and you shall not be entitled to any refund of any (non-refundable) prepaid amount unless the accommodation agrees or allows otherwise under its (pre)payment and cancellation policy.
If you wish to review, adjust or cancel your reservation, please revert to the confirmation email and follow the instructions therein. Please note that you may be charged for your cancellation in accordance with the accommodation provider's cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy or not be entitled to any repayment of any (pre)paid amount. We recommend that you read the cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy of the accommodation provider carefully prior to making your reservation and remember to make further payments on time as may be required for the relevant reservation.
If you have a late or delayed arrival on the check-in date or only arrive the next day, make sure to (timely/promptly) communicate this with the accommodation so they know when to expect you to avoid cancellation of your room or charge of the no-show fee. Our customer service department can help you if needed with informing the property. ILE does not accept any liability or responsibility for the consequences of your delayed arrival or any cancellation or charged no-show fee by the accommodation.
ILE has the right at any time to cancel a booking in case of a technical overbooking or failure caused by database/search engine.
