Recent guest reviews

Visited here for a weekend away. Service was absolutely first class. Hotel is cool, rooms really modern and luxurious. All the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Would definitely return. Quite expensive and breakfast wasn’t included but available at 42 euros per head!! But plenty of nice cafes and bakeries nearby so no issue.

Location great, room is everything you wish for, great food, nice spa, lovely and helpfully staff and the doorman(Jean)...with his smile he lets the sun shine in your heart. I will be back for sure !!!

This homework is located in the museum district of Amsterdam and is a beautiful hotel. The decor is gorgeous and our room was fabulous. One of the best rooms we have stayed in - two floors with two fabulous bathrooms. The staff were also lovely. The pool was also a nice place to visit too. I would definitely stay here again.

Well located grand hotel, excellent service and staff, wonderful rooftop suite, ideal for that self indulgent short city break to Amsterdam, and superb restaurant for that relaxed evening meal after a long day of walking the city. This is one of those few hotels who actually make sure they get all the small things right because they know that adds up to a bigger experience. Yes it is at the pricey end of the range but when it goes well like this it still feels value for money. Worth noting that we could walk to all parts of the city from here whilst being lucky with the very sunny weather and just follow the tram lines into the centre. This or cutting across the park would also take you to the nearby Blue Boats open boat canal tour. We would not hesitate to return with confidence and to look forward to staying here again and for the city.

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Conservatorium and highly recommend the hotel. Upon arrival it's impossible not to admire the historic architecture and music-themed decorations all over the property, but what made our stay exceptional was the service provided by the wonderful staff. Traveling with a child under 2 can be daunting, but the staff went out of their way to ensure our trip was as seamless as could be. From recommending kid friendly restaurants to warming up milk and food on demand, we could always count on them to be there for us. Additionally, Isabelle at the concierge desk even gave our daughter a stuffed animal as a keepsake to remember Amsterdam! The hotel's location is outstanding as well: close to a number of quality museums and other must see attractions, but not in an overcrowded and touristy area. We cannot say enough about this lovely hotel and its incredible staff and hope to be back soon!

Beautiful hotel in the south of Amsterdam in the museum area, opposite the Van Gogh. Lovely area, a small walk to Vondelpark, a nice cafe in the park for morning coffee and people watching. Hotel very expensive, trendy and although old building very contemporary inside. Staff helpful, any problems soon sorted out. The bar was lovely and great staff and the Taiko restaurant was beautiful as long as you like this type of food. Check you bill on check out, we were charged twice for a visit to this restaurant until I pointed it out to the receptionist. A few negatives, there was no door at the top of the stairs, it would have been easy for someone to fall down the stairs in the night especially after a drink or two. No hand rail into the jacuzzi in the spa and no hand rail down the stairs into the spa and my husband tripped and fell. The modern sofas in the reception and outside are too low and quite uncomfortable. Tea and coffee served in the reception with added chocolates and biscuits was very nice. The Brasserie restaurant was OK food but certainly overpriced. Service in the reception area was a little slow too. Airport transfer with Hotel costs 125 euro get your own taxi for 43 euro. Overall a lovely hotel but very pricey.

We travel to northern Europe twice a year, and we always stay at least a few days in the Conservatorium Hotel on the Museumplein in Amsterdam. This hotel provides easy access to the best museums, the Concertgebouw, and great restaurants. Our previous reviews have noted the splendid exterior and interior architecture of this interesting and unusual hotel. But, once again, we must note the terrific people are what make this perfectly located, exquisitely designed hotel, such a wonderful place. Of course we are prejudiced. By now, some of the staff remember us by name, the computer knows our favorite room and reserves it. But, you simply cannot praise too much the thoughtfulness and and friendliness of the people. They quickly and quietly attempt to meet your every need, from a firm pillow, to fast laundry, to daily fruit. On this trip, Colette at the (sometimes hit, sometimes miss) Brasserie went out of her way to get us a super quick breakfast, since she knew we were on the run that day. Of special note, the in-hotel Taiko, which had been a disappointment on an earlier trip, was outstanding when Amsterdam drizzle caused us to cancel a planned dinner.

Amsterdam is about canals or the grachts. The problem with this hotel is it does not represent the character of Amsterdam. It is isolated away from the canals. Its kind of land locked. And you end up going to restaurants that are 20-30 mins away near the grachts. Rooms are pretty small as well. Concierge needs a bashing for suggesting places across town without consideration of distances i.e. lunch would be one end and the next event would be other end. The only positive was the breakfast layout. If you have the inclination to spend this kind of money, do it on a hotel room on a gracht.

The Conservatorium is a trendy, hi tech, luxury hotel within a beautiful historic building. We liked almost everything about the hotel. The staff - friendly and professional in every aspect. There was a slight problem with checking in that we were scheduled for early check in but our room wasn't ready until after 3PM (the usual check in time). We were told the room was ready when we arrived at 2:20PM except for the sign off by the supervisor. We checked back close to 3PM and were told it would be an additional 10 minutes. When we were shown to our room the staff member was very helpful in showing us all the rooms features. The room - high tech and very trendy. You could almost say edgy. The room was a duplex with a sitting area on the main floor with the bedroom and a powder room in the loft. The room had floor to ceiling windows and a very large master bath with a full tub and spacious shower on the main floor. The room was very well appointed with lots of amenities. The quality of the bedding and linens was superior. Overall we liked the room but it was not without its issues. There was a minor problem with the WIFI and the televisions (it was eventually corrected). One of the reading lamps next to the bed was out and had to be replaced and the swivel on the makeup mirror in the master bath was faulty. These were all minor issues and most were resolved quickly. The bigger issue with the room was overall design. It offers very little in the way of storage - only a small cupboard with 5 hangers and no real room for suitcases. We also found the layout of the loft perplexing. The door to the loft powder room opens to the stairs instead of the bed. One could easily get up during the night to use the facility and accidentally open the door and fall down the stairs. Not sure that much thought went into the utility of the design given the possibility for serious injury if only one person fell. We liked the separate sitting area but given the layout of the loft we would have preferred one floor. Restaurants - the included breakfast was quite good with an ample selection of items. We also had dinner one evening at the Brasserie. Service was impeccable. The selection of entrees was varied and reasonably priced. We shared the Tomahawk steak for 2, It was on the rare side of medium rare but otherwise excellent. Overall we enjoyed our stay but would caution about the layout of the duplex.

I stayed at the Conservatorium last month on business. I loved the location in the Museum District and different than city center. Its a luxury hotel with great art work . The historic building gifts it a one of a kind touch that it unique to any other hotel. I was in a Jr Suite loft - 2 story. Bathrooms are most likely the best I have seen in any luxury hotel . Staff was friendly and attentive. I loved the location of lux stores in the back entrance of the Hotel .
