Conservatorium

Conservatorium

*****

Part 19th-century landmark, part 21st-century architectural showcase, Amsterdam’s luxurious but laid-back Conservatorium hotel houses a top-tier restaurant and hip holistic spa. Austerely seductive suites make for indulgent romantic breaks, and its location is perfect for city strolling.

Highlights:

  • Cutting-edge design

  • Upscale spa and dining

  • City-centre location

Smith extra

Continental buffet breakfast each day (usually €22.50) – or upgrade to an à la carte breakfast with hot dishes for just €5.50 a day

In the know

Also need to know:

A cardio room within the spa zone offers yoga and Pilates lessons daily, or you can book a session with a personal trainer (€85 an hour). In Amsterdam for the architecture? Start right here in your hotel. Italian interiors man Piero Lissoni’s razor-sharp mix of old and new is a real talking point, and has won the Conservatorium countless awards. And we love his quirky, playful touches: a bring-the-outside-inside line of trees separates the brasserie from the lounge, a suspended staircase next to the lift shaft goes nowhere, and a Ferrari-red hippo lives opposite reception. You may be standing in an austere 19th-century landmark building, but straight-laced styling this is not.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this hotel in Amsterdam and unpacked their designer Delftware, a full account of their romantic city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Conservatorium…

What a feast for fans of cool – and clever – design Amsterdam’s Conservatorium hotel is. At the front (which is now the hotel’s back), a grandiose old-school façade, originally a 19th-century bank and now meticul

Dining information

Restaurant:

Big-hitting Dutch chef Schilo van Coevorden leads the charge at both the casual Brasserie (all-day light bites set beneath soaring ceilings in the striking internal courtyard) and in Tunes Restaurant by Schilo (serious destination dining in the old part of the hotel). Tunes’ eight-course tasting menus might include baked scallop with celeriac gel and caviar, cappuccino crab with fennel or eel roll with kimchi, and there’s an à la carte menu too. Breakfasts are splendid, too: the Ice Bar buffet is loaded with fresh, seasonal goodies, home-baked breads, cheeses and cold cuts; supplement this with hot dishes, including black truffle eggs Benedict, or blinis with smoked salmon and caviar.

Top table:

Design is the talking point wherever you dine in the Conservatorium: you can watch the world go by the Stedelijk from a window table in Tunes but you might just as happily gawp at its floor-to-ceiling pigeon-hole shelving.

Last orders:

A quietly confident barman will mix you a martini until 1am Monday to Thursday, until 2am Friday and Saturday and until midnight on Sunday. Order food in Tunes, Monday to Saturday until 10.30pm (closed Sunday) and the brasserie daily until 11pm.

Room service:

Choose from a lengthy menu 24 hours a day: most bases are covered whether you fancy breakfast beneath the duvet, afternoon tea with a bottle of Billecart-Salmon, a straightforward burger or a bells-and-whistles dinner of lobster bisque and ceps risotto.

Hotel bar:

Thursday is the new Friday at Tunes Bar: it’s the start of a three-night weekender set from the hotel’s resident DJs and the weekly showcase for the hotel’s signature gin-based cocktails (think Hendricks with Fever Tree and cucumber, or No 3 Gin with elderflower tonic and mint). Don’t miss the upscale bar snacks – salmon sashimi, hoi sin duck spring rolls, shrimps with tarragon butter – and look out for the wall of backlit glass shelving given over to spirit bottles and canoodling little bird figurines.
