Once an iconic music academy, now a chic stay with all that jazz.
Conceptualised and designed by visionary owner Georgi Akirov and Milanese starchitect Piero Lissoni, The Conservatorium Hotel pays homage to the hallowed halls of its history, but revamps the interiors with Dutch-meets-contempo Italian gusto.
Step inside to creamy, sleek suites and duplexes with wooden-planked floors and oriental embellishments like tribal masks, delft plates and vintage Asian rugs. Ranging from 30 to 170 sqm, each suite has comp WiFi, espresso machines, mirror TVs and funky custom-made Lissoni furny.
Hungry? Trot on down to Tunes Restaurant by Schilo for Dutch delectables whipped up by chef Schilo van Coevorden, or if you prefer a casual nibble or tea and cake, head towards the hotel’s Brasserie and the Lounge. Too stuffed for food? Simply get comfy on the oversized plushy sofas at the Atrium and soak up the delightful ambiance, or leg it to the spacious Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Retreat, a 1,000 sqm escape from reality.
Let’s say you’re not in Amsterdam for the dykes, bikes, waterways or cycleways. Bizzy-bees get perks like six meeting rooms equipped with state-of-the-art devices, signature Schilo cocktails and jam sessions at the intimate Tunes bar, and the largest cigar humidor in Europe, La Casa del Habano. Nice.
