Standing on the famous site of Amsterdam’s former Sweelinck Conservatory of Music, the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam opened at the end of 2011. This magnificent Neo-Gothic building was originally built at the end of the 19th Century and in its new incarnation, it has been transformed into a contemporary luxury five-star hotel.
Located in the heart of Amsterdam’s museum district (Museumplein) on Van Baerlestraat, the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam is close to The Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Royal Concertgebouw. Also, the luxury shopping avenues, P.C Hooftstraat and Van Baerlestraat, sit right on the hotel’s doorstep as well as the charming Vondelpark and the lanes of the Jordaan neighbourhood. The historical centre of Amsterdam is within walking distance.
Designed by Piero Lissoni (leading Italian architect and interior designer), the Conservatorium Hotel is a true design hotel and combines historical architecture with modern design. The hotel features 129 bedrooms and suites, an array of restaurants and a bar, as well as a selection of cutting-edge events and banqueting spaces.
Conservatorium Hotel is also home to the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre – an urban retreat that is the perfect place to unwind, relax and enjoy. Spanning over 1000sqm, Akasha is the finest holistic spa in Amsterdam offering a range of signature treatments, massages, marrying innovative Western practices with ancient Eastern traditions and featuring 18 m x 5 m indoor swimming pool, a whirlpool, Hammam, sauna, Watsu pool and relaxation areas. Conservatorium Hotel’s contemporary design coupled with the hotel’s incredible location gives guests a unique experience – as soon as they step into the hotel, they are immersed into the city’s rich cultural and design legacy.
Conservatorium Hotel is the first member of The Set, a collection created to redefine the concept of the luxury hotel for sophisticated, design literate travellers in the 21st Century. Working to an uncompromising brief that called for hotels that were not only of the moment but that would define their times and locations, The Set works with leading architects and designers to rework the DNA of the grand hotel and create spaces that are contemporary in conception, whilst simultaneously evocative of the style and glamour of the past.
Located in existing landmark buildings, each member of The Set is rooted in the history and culture of its location as well as the contemporary needs and desires of its guests.
On Saturday November 16, 2013 Conservatorium Hotel will be the spectacular setting of our inaugural masked ball. More information to follow soon.
