The Conservatorium is a large centrally located former bank and music conservatory that has been converted into a luxury contemporary hotel. It is excellently located to all three of Amsterdams best and most well known museums..in fact, within easy walking distance...The Rijks, the Van Gogh, the Stedelijk.
The service-from doorman to reception desk to concierge-are extremely welcoming and helpful.
The Junior Suite on the top floor is like a medium size studio, repleat with old structural beams angling across the ceiling and floor. The automated shades work to shield the abundance of light at night. The bathroom is large, comfortable and very well equipped with lots of amenities.
The rooms are individually controlled and the AC is a welcome relief to the often warm and humid temperature outdoors. ( Although the common areas, like the hallways, are sweltering. They need to figure out how to fix this. ) The beds are comfy!
Their Brasserie has delicious croquettes..a dish made popular in the Netherlands. The breakfasts were disappointing.
The concierge hit it three times with his restaurant suggestions. Use him! Except make sure you confirm any cancellations of activities that you sign up for or you will be charged!
The trolleys are easy to take and right outside the hotel. We took it a few times to the town center-Old Town-and to the canal areas, as it rained the four days we were there.
Speaking of weather, beware. Holland is known for its' wet weather and it lived up to its reputation in May. Come prepared and leave the hotel prepared!
Would highly recommend the Conservatorium!
