A top-notch location for art-lovers, this five-star is just a stone’s throw from Amsterdam’s Big Three museums – the Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum and Stedelijk.

Italian designer Piero Lissoni transformed the 19th-century former music conservatory into a sleek, urbane oasis, while retaining many of the original Art Nouveau details of the landmark building.

A soaring, glass-enclosed atrium houses the lobby lounge and brasserie, outfitted with low-slung leather seating; a swanky gathering spot for well-heeled hotel guests and fashionable locals.

The 129 spacious bedrooms are modern and minimalist, dressed in muted tones and featuring luxurious limestone bathrooms. If you’re in need of pampering, the hotel’s Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre boasts a hammam and a Watsu pool for custom hydro-treatments.
