The Conservatorium Hotel
The Conservatorium Hotel is an unrivaled architectural masterpiece that exudes sophistication and historic charm. The hotel was designed in the late 19th century by leading Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel as part of Amsterdam’s Museumplein. Like its neighboring Rijksmuseum, and Concert Gebouw, the Conservatorium’s exterior is styled after late gothic architecture, combining the period’s grandiose gestures with more modest Dutch design. Today it contains a selection of restaurants, a bar, and a wellness facility, along with many luxury suites.
