I stayed at the Hotel Conservatorium for a city break with my sister. We chose the hotel primarily for the amazing swimming pool and secondly for its location to museums. On arrival we discovered that the pool was closed for maintenance - and I had not received the email telling me as such. We were so obviously gutted and upset, that when we explained to the staff that this was the main reason we had chosen the hotel, they went out of their way to do everything/anything to make our stay perfect. We received an upgrade, and they organised for us to go to a sister hotel to use their swimming pool instead. On top of that we were given seriously delicious home made chocolate goodies in our room and a present for my 7month old daughter. We were basically spoilt rotten! Then best of all the pool was ready on Sunday so we got to swim after-all. It is the best indoor hotel pool I ve ever swum in, long, warm, clean and not busy. All the recommendations of restaurants were spot on, fun buzzy, and priced sensibly. We ate lunch at the hotel on our last day and that was delicious too. We also took advice on where to go for walks and what to see and these too were great recommendations. Three particular staff made our stay at the hotel the best ever, Pierre, Ruurd and Isabelle. We cannot thank them enough for their kindness, helpfulness, generosity and general all round brilliance. We could not recommend this hotel more highly and we cannot wait to return one day. It really is 5*. Thank you.

I have been reading so many reports on this hotel since its opening 2 years ago, so when i fianlly got a chance to make a business trip to Amsterdam, and am booked at this hotel, the expectation has been very high on my side.
And the hotel did not fail to deliver.
The recpetion was very friendly upon my arrival at 7am in the morning, though my pre booked room was sold, i was soon offered a nice duplex deluxe room and a glass of fresh apple juice. The concierge David was nice and attentive, could address to most of us by names. Impessive.
The room is nice, pretty well maintained, comfortable and could be managed easily by electronic devices (one of my senior colleagues was not too fond of this though). The bAthroom size is decent, very clean, filled with L'Occitane amenities, and fitted with a beautiful bathtub. For a hotel so determined to be e best, it is a pity that no scale is provided, not the automatic toilet flushing / boards system, and no ipod dock.
The bed was very comofrtable, sexy linen, but lousy pillows...
Generous fruits platter, cookies and complimentary mineral water is appreciated too.
The gym is really good for a hotel, with on site trainer, smartly designed so that one does not feel trapped exercising here even it is technically located at the basement. Unfortunately the spa and pool were under renovation, with no mentioning from the website, at the front desk, nor a note to guest left in the room, that was a bit disapponting too.
The location is excellent too, perfect for visiting museums ! Will definitely come back to this friendly, beautiful, convenient and stylish hotel !

Dear guest,

It is a great pleasure for us to read that we were able to fulfill your expectations and that you felt well taken care of. We are disappointed however that we have not been able to fully satisfy your needs for a truly distinctive stay. Although it does not help you for your past visit, for any future visits, please be advised that we allows guests to make an alternative pillow choice from our pillow menu. We would be happy to help you find a pillow that fully meets your needs.

I also apologize that our notification of the temporary spa closure had not reached you. Hopefully you can make it back to Conservatorium Hotel to experience the fully maintained Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Center. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back.

We stayed at The Conservatorium Hotel this weekend. It is truly a beautiful hotel, with superb design and in one of the best parts of town. The room we stayed in was situated on the 7th floor, very nicely designed. The staff is very welcoming, friendly and attentive. We would certainly stay another time and as an experienced traveller I would recommend it to fellow travellers who appreciate design, luxury and good service.

The Brasserie however is the only minor flaw: there seems to be enough staff around but still everything takes a lot of time. Not just at breakfast but also in the afternoon. One staffer was busy taking photographs of the buffet at breakfast, which seemed odd when service is slow to begin with. We assumed that our experience could be a one off, or a temporary problem. When flicking through other reviews I noticed however that the same experience has been noted since 2012. Something to seriously deal with, I would say. Roomservice on the other hand is very good with excellent staff. And since the rooms are beautiful, having breakfast in your room is a very good option.

Room Tip: The rooms on the Van Baerlestraat-side are light and an added bonus is the characteristic sound of t...

The hotel is perfectly situated for the RIjks Museum, Van Gogh and Staedlijk museums being just across the road from two of them. The building is impressive and the staff particularly helpful. The Akasha Spa was great, hardly anyone there so we had the 18m pool and the hammam to ourselves. Outside is the tram stop for the number 2 and 5 which takes you to most places. We took the museum package which included a Dutch afternoon tea, quite something and well worth sampling.

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room and it was first class
