Conservatorium has got to be one of the best hotels I have stayed at, though also one of the most expensive.
The hotel has a great location just off Museumplein which means superb access to all the main museums in Amsterdam.
The hotel itself looks spectacular once you step inside the lobby. The entire lobby and cafe area is actually built in front of the building that houses the rooms, so it puts a very modern looking structure against something more old world.
The staff is wonderful. We were staying at another place when we first came to Amsterdam and were to travel to two more cities before returning to stay at Conservatorium. The hotel was more than happy to keep one piece of luggage for us for an entire week which enabled us to travel lighter as we went to Prague and Berlin.
And what can I say about the room!! We were staying in what I think was a deluxe room which is split over two floors - well one floor and a mezzanine. It overlooked the lobby and cafe, which was a really nice view actually from the room. The entrance level of the room has a large bathroom and sitting area, while you climb the stairs to go to the bedroom which has a smaller attached bathroom.
Plus factor for me - the room has a Nespresso machine. Waking up with a cup of that every morning was great. The room has a lot of modern switches which got me a little confused at first. But you figure it out quickly. The decor is very modern with a splash of Delft pottery in the form of plates on one wall. Those plates incidentally looked better than any other pottery I had seen in shops in Amsterdam!!
My only grouse was being woken up by the housekeeping guy in the morning, only to check when we wanted the room cleaned so he wouldn't need to disturb us!!! He sort of missed the point there by ringing the bell in the first place. And 20 mins later rung the bell again, claiming it was accidental this time. Not happy.
Apart from that one incidence, it was a great experience and if it weren't for the expense, I would stay here again.
