The Conservatorium is set within a former music conservatory, a century-old redbrick landmark just up the road from Amsterdam’s boutique-lined P.C. Hooftstraat and directly opposite the Stedelijk Museum.

The building has been given new life by Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni (who also fashioned the Conservatorium’s sister hotel, the Mamilla, in Jerusalem).

Working within strict preservation regulations, Lissoni devised a dramatic lobby that inhabits a courtyard lined in pale-green Italian Lithoverde stone and capped by a glass-and-steel roof

A sleek steel staircase links the lobby with the rest of the hotel, creating a catwalklike transition.

The hotel’s restaurant, Tunes, is a reservations-essential spot helmed by Schilo van Coevorden, one of Amsterdam’s most celebrated chefs.
