Where to Stay in Amsterdam: The Conservatorium

The Conservatorium Hotel is one of Amsterdam’s leading luxury lifestyle properties, evoking glamour and elegance for sophisticated, design-literate travelers.

The property is location right across from Museum Square, the luxury center and cultural heart of the city, where the renowned Van Gogh and Rembrandt galleries are held. The Conservatorium is an architectural masterpiece of a landmark building, thoughtfully designed and offers guests a selection of restaurants, a bar, Lounge and a spa & wellness facility. “A destination hotel with a real sense of place, the Conservatorium is known at home and abroad as ‘Amsterdam’s Living Room’.”


Design lovers won’t be forced into the cookie-cutter type room layouts. The hotel offers guests their choice of room layouts to accommodate solo travelers, couples, and families. Choose from twelve different suite themes, including the Royal Duplex suite,, the I <3 Amsterdam suite, and an impeccable Penthouse suite.  As a result of our last minute booking we found ourselves in a standard Deluxe Guestroom. The room was modern and delicately designed for optimal comfort. Our room had a view of Museum Square and was hidden in a cozy corner at the far end of the hotel.

Dining + Bar

The highlight of this hotel is their selection of cocktails and cuisines. Taiko is an Asian fusion restaurant steered by the mind of the talented chef, Schilo Van Coevorden. The restaurant offers a menu of savory, delectable and delicate bites, including their prized aged Japanese Waygu beef, sushi rolls, dim sum, and soups. Their house bar, Tunes, offers a chic decor matched with an elegant, contemporary ambiance. Guests are obliged to sit back and enjoy champagnes, cocktails, and tasty Asian Tapas. For the daily breakfast seating, you have your choice of the buffet or ordering from the a la carte menu. The buffet offers a wide variety of meats, cheeses, fruits, fresh juices and grains.


Most noteworthy, the spa facilities were by far my favorite part of our stay. The Akasha Wellness Facility offers an 60 foot long lap pool, steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi. They’ve seemed to create an oasis in the heart of Amsterdam. Most of all, the spa evokes sensuality and relaxation thru enhanced further by mood lighting, restorative sounds and uplifting aromas. The Wellness Center has seven treatment rooms, including a double treatment Akasha suite for couples. There is even a private Hammam for purifying scrubs and massages and a Vichy shower for cleansing hydrotherapy rituals.

We booked their 90 min couples Hot Stone Massage and it was the best massage experience I have EVER had! There is no better pampering that what is done by the staff at the Akasha spa. I highly recommend booking one (or more) of their signature treatments!
