The Conservatorium Hotel to Open in Amsterdam

 

A new design hotel will be opening in Amsterdam this summer, and it's causing quite the stir. The iconic city-center building that once housed Amsterdam's premier music conservatorium has morphed into a fashionable 128-room property adjacent to the city's exclusive shopping street, P.C. Hoofstraat.

Owner Georgi Akirov hired the acclaimed Milan-based designer Piero Lissoni to mastermind the Conservatorium Hotel's interior design, combining a contemporary aesthetic with nods to the building's history.
 


Think exposed beams contrasting with a glass-covered atrium, and Classical music playing throughout the public spaces. Little wonder then, the hotel is a member of Design Hotels.

The 128 rooms, including Duplex and Roof Suites, will feature luxurious touches like super-sized towels, deep soaking tubs, complimentary mineral water at turn-down, and fully stocked private bars.

There will also be three communal dining outlets and a Holistic Wellbeing Centre with exclusive hydro treatments, a cutting-edge gym, and an organic bar.
