Set in a neo-Gothic 19th-century building, the Conservatorium Hotel has taken the spirit of the original structure to create the framework for a truly contemporary hotel. Once home to a music conservatory, this property now sings a different tune, offering luxe accommodations in 129 bedrooms and suites. Original details such as uniquely beamed loft ceilings remain, while Italian interior design brings a streamlined but playful touch to the décor. Conservatorium Brasserie & Lounge feeds diners in a glass-ceilinged courtyard, and Taiko concept restaurant woos locals and visitors with Asian-inspired tapas. The hotel enjoys a prime Museum District location, and guests can easily walk to the Rijksmuseum and other notable attractions. A Watsu pool, hammam and signature therapies are just a few of the relaxing options at Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre. Dutch treat, indeed!
