This new five star hotel near the museum district opened its doors in the former Conservatory of Amsterdam. The beautiful old building was totally renovated and is a welcome addition to the hotel scene in the city. Ever since I was a child I’ve loved hotels, especially the ones which combine old architecture with contemporary design. The Italian architect Piero Lissoni did a great job in combining the past with the present for this hotel.
When entering the hotel from the Van Baerlestraat entrance, make a right to find your way to the classy hotel bar Tunes. If you want to start your night in Amsterdam in style with a good glass of wine or cocktail, I definitely recommend this place. The bar is not too big, which creates an intimate but urban atmosphere.
The crowd is mixed, but everyone in general is well dressed since it’s an upscale venue. Do realize the drinks won’t come cheap, but hey, sometimes you just have to spoil yourself and spend it!
