“Very, very nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

This is an amazing hotel with so many good things. Sometimes a pros and cons analysis is simplest.

Pros:
-Amazing modern architecture in historic building
-Big room with comfy beds and gorgeous bathroom
-Really clean
-Helpful staff and lots of little perks in your room (fruit, water, etc.)
-Great location near Museumplein

Cons:
-Room electronics are a little confusing and sometimes flaky

The place really nice. We reserve for 5 guests, there were only other 4 people at the Restaurant when we arrive. We order two appetizers and five main courses, the appetizers were brought about 15 minutes, but for the main courses we had to want for an HOUR! The Food very plan, and with an HOUR wait, the experience was terrible!

The area in which the hotel is located is charming with museums, shopping and very close to a great canal ride. The staff were very helpful and our room was phenomenal. The hotel is quiet, luxurious, and has a wonderful atrium lobby to sit and people watch.

The hotel is stunning and the level of service I received was among the best I have ever experienced. I highly recommend The Conservatorium and would definitely stay there again if I ever make it back to Amsterdam! Although expensive, the quality of the amenities and level of service make it worth it.

The neighborhood is the museum district and a bit distanced from the hustle and bustle of the heart of the city. This may be a plus for some but could be a downside for those who want to step out of the front door and be in the center of shopping, cafes and nightlife.

This is a very good hotel. Created out of a vast former bank they have created the most amazing atrium that houses the (excellent) restaurant, bar and reception area. I could happily while away a few hours sitting in that space watching the world go by!
with 6-7 floors of rooms, they do stretch down rather long, dark impersonal corridors. But the (2) rooms we had were light and well designed with all the usual modern features. i never like rooms where you can't open the windows, i could just about on these, but if you desire fresh air you will have to rely on the air conditioning.
all the staff from the man that greats you, to the waiters and waitresses, reception, concierge were all superb. knowledgable, friendly and of course all speaking impeccable english. we particularly valued their restaurant recommendations, all local and 'just around the corner'.
we did not really use the spa, which looks like it is of top quality. there is certainly a beautiful relaxing pool with lovely facilities around it, and a top quality gym.
the hotel is located just off the canals, but is right next to the main museums, and being Amsterdam nothing is really that far away.
we will definitely come back

Room Tip: just ask. there must be hundreds of rooms!

This was our first stay at the Conservatorium and we had a wonderful experience. The hotel is beautiful and situated near all of the museums and close to the gorgeous Vondel park. Luxury shopping also close by. Easy to walk to city center. Staff was very helpful and courteous. The bar offered great drinks and a fun atmosphere. Lobby a great place to sit and relax after a long day. We would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a hotel that offers a contemporary upscale experience.

Room Tip: Our suite was over the top!

Stayed in the Conservatorium hotel for the second time. First time was December 2013, second time was April 2014. Beautiful rooms, perfect beds and bed linen. Second time, I stayed in a room with a separate floor for the bed. Nice concept but a very small room, I must add. Most important however, the windows cannot be opened but if that room needed anything, it was fresh air. Would not stay again in this hotel before being assured that fresh air can come into the rooms.

Dear guest,

First of all I would like to thank you for choosing to stay with us again. I am disappointed however that your second stay did not live up to your previous experience at our hotel. For any future stays please be sure to inform us about your room preference. We would be more than happy to give you a room that fully meets your needs including windows that can be opened. We really hope you will be our guest again to experience a truly memorable stay.
