After a short stint in Europe, Lightfoot Travel’s Elgin came back into the office raving about his latest find in Amsterdam: The Conservatorium. This architectural masterpiece blends modern design and traditional inspiration seamlessly for a unique décor in the heart of the capital’s cultural centre.


Where is The Conservatorium located?

The Conversatorium is located within vicinity of the Museum Quartier, where you can find some of the city’s best museums – the Rijksmuseum, which recently opened after 9 long years of renovation, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk to name a few. This is the Old South Amsterdam, which is currently enjoying a renewal as the city’s cultural heart. Here, you are likely to find more locals than tourists who are busy sampling the excellent restaurants and cafes close by. Just two streets down you will find the compact luxury shopping street of Van Baerlestraat and of course, Vondelpark, the green lung of the city where our partners at the hotel do their marathon training -for a less intense frolic in the park, we prefer going there for a picnic. Amsterdam’s main attractions are all within walking distance, but should you prefer, you can easily hop onto the city’s trams to get around.


What makes this hotel unique in Amsterdam? What’s its history?

The hotel was originally built as the city’s Post Office Saving Bank. On the lower floors, you can still find the tiles of the original building, which interestingly features bees, the symbol of savings. These tiles have been painstakingly restored to its original grandeur in memory of its history. Later, it housed the Conservatorium of Amsterdam which consists of three musical institutes – and also how the building got its name.

The Set Hotels purchased the premises in 2008 when the institute outgrew the building, and opened in 2011 as one of Amsterdam’s leading luxury hotels. This is currently the only luxury hotel with modern décor, whilst still retaining the features of the original buildings, from the tiles to the stain glass windows and stone arches in the hallway.


Describe the architecture and general ambiance of the property?

Award winning Italian designer Piero Lissoni has done an amazing job, creating a hybrid design of modernist and contemporary chic which contrasts playfully with the natural day light that comes through. The entire courtyard of the building has been enclosed by glass, creating a bright, airy space and now housing the lobby and brasserie, a very clever concept and use of space merging modern with traditional.


Tell us more about the room you stayed in.

The original building has floors with high ceilings and large windows, and the hotel has made good use of the original architecture by designing several duplex rooms. I stayed in the Grand Duplex Suite, which has the bedroom on the upper level and a living space below with a sofa bed, two full bathrooms, two TVs, ideal for families. The bathrooms are all well hidden behind the walls by camouflaged doors, and some guests might think their rooms are not en-suite but there’s always a team member who will show you the room during check-in and explain the modern mechanisms.

All rooms feature a swivel-able TV which has been specially and exclusively designed for the hotel by Bose, and you’ll notice that the sleek gadget has zero cables; it’s so appealing that many guests have asked to purchase it for their homes.

There are also 3 signature suites that you should check out which are excellent value for money in comparison to what you would get in the best hotels in Paris or London.

The Concerto Suite is a unique 90sqm duplex with kitchenette, separate sitting and dining room and historic architectural window. I loved the I ♥ Amsterdam Suite’s rooftop terrace with gorgeous 360 views over Amsterdam and spectacular bathtub. The suite is spread over three levels and spans 155sqm. Last but not least, the Penthouse Suite, the largest of the three at 170sqm boasts a living room, dining area with 80-inch screen that can be your own private entertainment centre (which you can control using your mobile phone, how cool is that!), kitchenette, and make-up room. The entire floor can be privatised too, with 6 other rooms and the lift lobby area transforms into a private lounge. Absolutely brilliant! No surprise that the hotel has many celebrities as past guests.


How is the dining?

There are a few options to cater to everyone’s whims. The delightful all-day dining brasserie located in the courtyard of the building is where a generous breakfast buffet spread is served. It’s a wonderful place thanks to the daylight that oozes in, making in feel very open and not crowded – it’s a popular destination among the locals for high tea or just a drink.

Taiko is the gourmet restaurant of the hotel serving Asian-inspired cuisine. Do make your reservations in advance, but also note that they only open for dinners and take a break in the summer!

My favourite would be Tunes Bar, with 36 signature Gin cocktails, one wonders how long you will take the sample them all… And of course, there’s always in-room dining if you just want to kick back and relax.

Any parting words?

When staying here, do not forget to check out the wellness centre, the largest in Amsterdam, its different areas themed with the elements of earth, water, fire and wind. A generous 18x5m pool with jacuzzi, sauna, seven treatment rooms, 24hr gym, a lounge bar serving healthy food and classes ranging from pilates, yoga to boxing. You’ll view city hotels very differently moving forward!
