New Amsterdam hotel opens in former music conservatorium

amsterdam hotelOne of our favorite spaces for hotels? Old buildings. News broke last week that Washington DC’s former Post Office Building will become a new Trump Hotel, and today we bring you Amsterdam‘s premier music conservatorium, recently re-launched as the aptly-named Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam, Design Hotels™ newest member property.

The hotel mixes old and new in a layering of of classic and contemporary, with new additions such as a glass-covered atrium and exposed beams.

The property, which is part of the new luxury hotel collection The Set, pays tribute to the Amsterdam Conservatorium’s legacy by playing soothing classical music selections throughout the hotel. Whimsical names such as the “Tunes Restaurant” pay homage to the building’s musical past.

The hotel’s 129 rooms and suites provide a respite for the weary while an Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Center serves as a spa.
