This 5 star hotel is superb.
Traditional 5 star hotels are usually full of chintz, with a stiff atmosphere. Boutique style hotels tend to be too dark, too noisy and full of fashionistas, which I hate. However the Conservatorium is a comfortable & contemporary hotel with the right mix of modernity, style and comfort.
All the staff were helpful, particularly David and Isobel at reception.
I had a lovely quiet room on the 7th floor, having specifically requested that I did not want a duplex room. The steam room & cold shower in the spa were great, and treated myself to a shiatsu massage and a watsu.
Breakfast on two occasions was delicious, lunch in the brasserie was very good & had a well balanced menu.
The hotel is in a good location for museums, whilst the adjacent fashion shopping streets may be great for some, but not for me. These 'conspicuous consumption' brands do nothing for me.
It is worth visiting Amsterdam, just to enjoy this hotel.
