“Great Hotel and Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Arrived to Amsterdam for a short weekend and was lucky to have booked my self in to this great hotel. Staff was very helpful and the concierge actually gave great recommendation.
The standard rooms was very modern and nice. But after peeking on one of the suites, I just had to upgrade. It was well worth it.
A big surprise was also the restaurant. Served delicious dishes.

Spa facility was great in general. The Sauna could have been a bit more warm.

We stayed in this hotel which is near the museum district. We loved the location. Five minutes by bicycle to the heart of the crowded and touristy canal district. The neighborhood around the hotel had a great neighborhood vibe. We rented bicycles and were a twenty minute bike ride from anyplace in the city. What we loved about the hotel were the "hosts" the very helpful concierge service. In general they found us just what we wanted and got us in to some difficult restaurants. The one thing that i would note, not all of the rooms are great. Our initial room was on two floors with a bathroom only on the downstairs. We ended up in a fantastic room so don't be shy about asking to change.

What a dream. Everything a hotel should be. Spectacular old building with soaring ceilings, art nouveau tiles and the latest in design courtesy of Lissoni. We had a superior or deluxe room. It was very spacious, beautifully designed. Ditto for the bathroom. There are many different styles of rooms so check the net to see what works for you. the location is minutes from all the must see museums. The staff is exceptionally friendly. Do double check on reservations made by the host team. They made us a reservation for a tuesday at Fyra. Oops... Turns out Fyra is closed every Tuesday. The hotel's own restaurant : Tunes offers an exceptional gourmet experience. Oh the lemon tart.... a sensational surprise.
The spa is wonderful, great massages. The spa itself is not well managed. Do double check on your appointments. They had one of ours for the wrong time.
Would I return to the Conservatorium ? DEFINITELY?

Room Tip: Do double check on dates made by host team and spa

This is a top hotel ! It is such a well designed place from the cool New York style cocktail bar to the super Tunes restaurant. It is international and lively. I also very much recommend the amazing spa that is literally out of this world. I had great workouts then would completely chill out in the spa and pool. I have been to Amsterdam often but this is my favorite hotel by far. Great for business or for those fun times. The location is great easy to get the museums as well as the business districts in the south. Best of all, the professional staff are all cheerful and there to help.

A very spectacular part of this urbane and sophisticated hotel is the Akasha Spa. It is large and very luxurious . The indoor pool is about the best I have seen in any hotel or club I have been to. The gym is large and has all the weights and equipment and allows a very serious workout and training. The sauna and hamman are spotlessly clean and of luxury materials. The Spa area exudes a peaceful and relaxing ambience that is more like that of an exotic and oriental atmosphere than of a clinical european spa.Just as important the staff are all so friendly and cheerful and extremely energetic. This being Amsterdam, everyone speaks very good English. It is a great place for either a workout with one the the super trainers or for a relaxing spa and massage treatment . It was a real joy in what is a great hotel. If you are lucky enough to stay here also make time for the Akasha Spa.

Our first trip to Amsterdam was made even more enjoyable with this property. Don't expect over the top pampering, which we quickly learned isn't a Dutch tradition, but you get top notch responsiveness, great food and very effective concierge and manager.
Got upgraded due to works in the facade of the hotel...a stunning duplex suite!

Room Tip: The duplex suite are sinfully good!

This spectacular hotel exceeded my expectations. The staff is exceptionally gracious and hospitable. The ambiance in all areas of the hotel including the lobby and public areas, the dining rooms, terrace, spa, bar, lobby, rooms are each uniquely appointed. The designers of this very sophisticated hotel have incorporated traditional Dutch antiques and treasures with contemporary art and furnishings resulting in the utmost style. The Conservatorium is a gallery, a museum and historical experience, while enjoying an elegant stay at the finest hotel.
