The Conservatorium Hotel took things to another level by mixing old with new. The critical elements that give the building its identity where preserved and cool new things were added with the use of glass, stone and steel.
The hotel is nested in the former conservatoire of Amsterdam. Within the already overcrowded luxury hotel scene of Amsterdam this hotel is still a league of its own as it doe not belong to a big hotel-chain and it does breath a certain history nevertheless the hotel being a couple of years old.
From a gastronomic point of view the Conservatorium does what is should do... serve high quality food served in a smart casual setting. the restaurant has reinvented itself recently after serving great food already for a long time. The new style restaurant is called Taiko and serves Pan-Asian inspired treats. The restaurant and kitchen is under supervision of the famous head chef Schilo van Coevorden.
