“Personal and over the top detailed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

From the moment we arrived in our taxi from the airport we knew we had found an absolute gem. The valet and doorman both knew our names and greeted us with sincere pleasure. The hotel was a beautiful example of preserved architecture in a modern environment. We had a deluxe room with a wonderful soaking tub that was a treat after a cool, rainy day of eating and sight seeing. We will definitely go back as Amsterdam is one of our favorite city/villages in Europe!

The hotel has a great location, right in front of the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum around the corner. You can shop till you drop on the PC Hooftstraat just one minute distance walking.
The rooms and suites are all great and very luxourious equiped. One small issue: there is not enough wardrobe space. The staff is very friendly and the congierge is great, he will fulfill all your needs.
The bar in the hotel is very popular with the Amsterdam incrowd and the atmosphere is just amazing.
One small detail: to me, the breafast seems very overpriced.

The spa is just one word fantastic and beyond belief! The hotel is very good, one of the best hotels in the city... it may just be the best, in fact. But all this comes with a huge pricetag.... and you must be willing to pay for it.

If you love a great hotel, with international allure, the Conservatorium Hotel is the place to be!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the side of Van Baerlestreet, they are much lighter!

The Conservatorium Hotel is a perfect weekend retreat - even if you live in Amsterdam. While staying there, you feel like you have discovered a hidden treasure in the heart of this vibrant city.

The historic building offers a stunning modern interior, that gives it an edgy touch without looking forced. The rooms offer everything you can dream of. I loved the bathrooms: one had a big spacious shower and the other one a super modern, but comfortable bath tube. And you should not forget to slip into one of these super cosy bath robes.

Their room service offers an excellent range of dishes and all of them were delicious. If you like gin tonic, you should so order one while there. It is next level and so refreshing. I am totally in love with them.

Also check out the spa. Its minimal design are a treat for the eye and the soul. So are their massages, steam bath, Hammam, whirlpool, sauna and Watsu pool. It is pure relaxation. The massages are pretty expensive, but yes, they are also heavenly.

We arrived here late one evening. Everyone we encountered at the hotel was extremely courteous and helpful. We were upgraded to what they call the "apartment suite", which was a living room, bedroom, very large bathroom and an exterior deck approximately 10' x 12'. Everything was extremely modern all the latest gadgets. It was a lovely suite and in fact we extended our stay an additional day.

Room Tip: We stayed in the fifth floor apartment and loved it.

Chic hotel with lots of mod cons and gadgets. V helpful staff. Bit of a maze with lots of levels and lifts that don't go to all floors which can be confusing but overall v good hotel. Had dinner in Tunes the restaurant which was nice quite modern food with concepts. Good!

When you think back about your holiday or citytrip you may very well think about your hotel. It is your home away from home, the start of each new day and the steady base at the end of each day. The Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam is the kind of hotel that's so good it may well be your fondest memory of Amsterdam.

The location is sublime. This hotel is situated next to the important museums, near the famous canals and parallel to Amsterdam's most luxurious shopping street. Do mind that this means parking is a challenge, to put it mildly.

As the name implies The Conservatorium is build in an old Conservatory. The hallways are big and open, while the rooms are spacious and very luxurious. The wooden floor and straight panels create a very exclusive atmosphere. Even the scent in the room is just so thanks to carfully placed perfume dispensers. The TV is integrated in a wall-panel, with separate speakers above the bed. And this being The Netherlands, everyone speaks English and the TV offers channels in just about every language known to man.

Being a vegan I'm always a challenge for the restaurant. The hotel restaurant insisted I'd eat with them, eventhough I wanted to go to a nearby Indian restaurant (always a safe choice). The "Tunes" restaurant rose to the occasion and served a wonderful vegan dinner. Well done Dutch cuisine! Breakfast includes a traditional Dutch topping: do try the chocolate sprinkles on freshly baked bread, a real Dutch treat.

Room Tip: The sixth floor doesn't seem to have the noisy rooms some reviewers are complaining about.

Impeccable!

I am so pleased to be able to share with you the wonder that we experiences at The Conservatorium Hotel! My husband and I decided to host our wedding Lunch at the Tunes Restaurant in September. The wonderful staff assisted us in creating not only a wonderful day but a magical experience! We had an impressive 4 course lunch that had our guests salivating with pleasure. And our over night stay in the Van Baerle Suite was absolutely glorious! Never have I been so pamper and felt so special! Every single moment was thought out by this very tentative and warm team. They are not only professional but were willing to cater to our every want and need. Nothing felt impossible at this great place, who knows they might even let us get in flying trapeze for our 10 year anniversary! A huge thank you for a perfect experience!

Room Tip: The Van Baerle Suite is by far the best! THAT BATH TUB...
