Mouthwatering local and seasonal foods, exquisite suites and a fine range of gins and tonics for sophisticated palates: the accessible Conservatorium Hotel in the centre of Amsterdam offers all the luxury you need when on a day trip to the Dutch capital. Housed in the former music academy, Sweelinck Conservatory Amsterdam, the Conservatorium Hotel still reminisces of its rich musical history. “There’s live music events, hallway walls are covered in pictures of famed musicians and our praised gin and tonic bar is called Tunes,” explains renowned chef Schilo van Coevorden.
