Heritage in Amsterdam
The Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam is the latest historic monument to be transformed into a luxury hotel. The 129 rooms are housed within the iconic 19th-century iconic Amsterdam building, which was once the State Bank.
Revamped by Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni, the hotel has retained its core aesthetics while incorporating a modern, minimalist twist that includes an impressive glass roof, and a contemporary lounge with oversized coloured sofas.
Ultra-modern in design but set within a property steeped in heritage, has proved one of the most prominent design directions of the travel industry in 2011. Check out the Age of Heritage for more.
