  • A city with no shortage of historical luxury hotel landed one more with the arrival of the Conservatorium Hotel, a 5-star design property within the historic Sweelinck music conservatory originally built by Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel in the ever-gentrified Museumplein. Retaining its period details and architectural grandeur, visitors arrive to a towering lobby chamber under 50-ft. ceiling arranged in Chesterfield leather sofas and cushy Italian club chairs with a modern edge by Milan designer Piero Lissoni. Light echoes through oversize panes of glass framing lofty design spaces of exposed brick walls and concrete floors thrown with period Oriental rugs.

    With no shortage of culinary attractions, the hotel is home to Conservatorium Brasserie featuring a more modern design palette with herringbone floors framing interconnecting rooms with living room style lounge. Nearby, more formal Tunes Restaurant by Schilo serves locally sourced regional cuisine in a dressier setting. Additional standout amenities include Akasha Spa offering full-service fitness center, hammam spa with line-up of facial or massage treatments and impressive indoor lap pool.

  • The Room:

    A total of 129 business-minded rooms suitable for hotel snobs or European banking elite offer entry-level Superior rooms with a little under 300-sq. ft. of space with interiors by Piero Lissoni that mix Italian minimalism with the historical architectural aspects of this period building. Larger Duplex rooms feature more optimal split-level layout with first floor living area and upstairs bedroom. Top-of-the-line suites include the Concerto Suite with Steinway Baby Grand Piano and dramatic bathroom with oval freestanding tub overlooking Stedelijk Museum.
