Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam

Is located in the heart of Amsterdam is the brand new five-star hotel and Amsterdam's best kept secret up to date: the Conservatorium. It features exclusive amenities unlike any other hotel you have visited before, so extravagant in fact, that it brings luxury to a whole new level.

129 Bedrooms and Suites

Originally designed by Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel, this iconic building first began as the Rijkspostsbank at the close of the 19th century. The full 4000 square meters of space were then purchased in 1897, and an additional wing was added to the building in 1914. In 1978, the Rijkspostsbank moved office, and after initially being abandoned for five years, the building became the new home for the Sweelinck Conservatorium, originally comprised of three musical institutes.

5 Star Luxury in Amsterdam

The modernized original architecture of the Conservatorium Hotel was upgraded to feature double walls, windows and doors which served to function as acoustic spaces for musical traning, up until the Sweenlick's departure in 1998. It remained neglected until 2008, when it was finally purchased by the team at Alrov, and with their visions for the epicurean traveller, the new Conservatorium was made a reality.
