Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam, is a recently opened amazing hotel in the site of the famous Amsterdam’s former Sweelinck Music Conservatorium, which was originally built at the end of the 19th Century and conceived by the renowned Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel as the Rijkspostspaarbank Building. Knuttel was praised for his ability to fuse simplicity and functionality, and the award-winning Milan-based architect, furniture and interiors designer Piero Lissoni has embraced this tradition through the re-incarnation of this spectacular building 100 years later. Lissoni made a quite espectacular work, capable of captivate even the most exquisite guest.
The hotel offers eight floors with 129 rooms of different categories in the property ranging from superior, deluxe, grand deluxe and suites of varying sizes unique spa facilities, dining and bar venues, an Holistic Center as well as events and banqueting spaces operating with leading technology. The several venues of the hotel blend sophistication and modern international style with the unique, rich and significant history of Amsterdam.
Ideally located in the heart of the city’s major museums cluster (Museumplein) and the Royal Concertgebouw, and parallel to the prestigious designer-fashion district of P.C. Hooftstraat and Van Baerlestraat, The Conservatorium Hotel offers unrivalled proximity to all of the capital’s cultural destinations. While nestled in “Oud Zuid” (The Old South), art lovers will be delighted by the proximity of world-class offerings from such venerated arts institutions as the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk, and the Van Gogh Museum. The opening of The Conservatorium Hotel shares in the wider renewal of this world-famous cultural hub, with the completion of the Rijksmuseum’s pivotal renovation and the re- opening of the refurbished Stedelijk now both firmly on the horizon.
For those seeking bohemian shops, independent restaurants and cafes, or a meander in the Vondelpark, the hotel is remarkably close by. It is also just a short stroll from the charming lanes of the Jordaan neighborhood.
Against the backdrop of the building’s incredibly rich history, the hotel has been consistently imbued with Lissoni’s signature style. Known for his austere lines, demure fabrics and shades of grey that are occasionally dotted by the appearance of bright accents, Lissoni is considered one of the most prominent and exciting contemporary Italian designers. At the Conservatorium Hotel he worked with Ninon van der Sande Studio, specialists in interior stylist.
Outstanding furnishing from leading manufacturers such as Cassina, Living Divani and Vitra sit prominently in all communal spaces and are complemented by Piero Lissoni’s own custom-made furniture and lighting while accent pieces such as vintage Asian rugs provide a sense of familiar comfort.
According to Lissoni “The sophisticated simplicity of the hotel was conceived with the hope of creating a personal atmosphere and ambience whereby guests and visitors alike instantly feel naturally at home. This balance of beautiful design and hospitable warmth is key to all of my projects and a key facet to my collaborations with The Mamilla and The Conservatorium hotel.” – Lissoni is right, better to take his advice and spend some days at this uncomparable hotel, in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.
