Originally founded in 1275, Amsterdam is steeped in history.With its numerous museums and galleries, the city is nowundergoing a cultural renaissance that is feeding a resurgentappetite for travel to Amsterdam, both locally and from abroad.The Conservatorium hotel is part of this renewal.The building was originally designed by the Dutch architectDaniel Knuttel as the Rijkspostspaarbank (Dutch savings bank)and sparked the regeneration of the Museum Quarter at the endof the 19th century.

In 1897, the building was constructed for 120,310 florins

(54,600 Euro), and was soon transformed into a definingicon of the city’s architectural and cultural hub, whosedevelopment was further aided by the horse trams thatbegan connecting the centre of Amsterdam with the Van


When the Rijkspostspaarbank had to move offices followinga series of merges, the building was abandoned in 1978. Afterlying empty for five years, it became the home of the newlyformed Sweelinck Conservatorium, consisting of three musicalinstitutes. Some remodelling was required to modernise DanielKnuttel’s architecture into functional acoustic classrooms.

In April 2008, the Conservatorium of Amsterdam outgrew itshome and departed to its current location at Oosterdokseiland.In 2008, The Set purchased this heritage building, attractedby its glorious past.

In a vision to restore its former beauty, award-winningMilan-based designer, Piero Lissoni, guided the creation of thehotel whose rich historical narrative is woven with utmost careinto its very fabric. The Conservatorium hotel is once again onthe pulse of the city’s cultural and architectural heartbeat.
