The Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam is an architectural masterpiece that combines a landmark heritage building with graceful, contemporary design. The hotel is located in the Museum Square district, the cultural heart of Amsterdam.
Green Globe recently recertified the Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam for the ninth consecutive year.
Green Globe Accredited Auditor, Emilie Hagedoorn from Green Label Service offers an insight into the sustainability approach of this renowned luxury hotel.
The Host Department & Human Library
Guests are thoughtfully guided towards responsible and rewarding experiences in the city by a personal host and the Human Library provides a unique opportunity for guests to interact with colourful and interesting locals.
At the Conservatorium hotel, a personal Host is assigned to each guest. The Host Department is a combination of Concierge and Guest Relations, providing an individual service to guests. Hosts handle bookings and arrangements, give an insight into the city, offer in-the-know advice and can even introduce guests to locals. The Human Library is a select group of people and representatives who assist the Host Department and provide an exceptional service for guests to discover shops and restaurants or meet unique individuals who can help guests explore Amsterdam from a completely different perspective.
Sustainable Produce as Art
Much thought has gone into procurement from local and sustainable suppliers. Taiko – the hotel’s signature restaurant – is sourcing Dutch Yellowtail from Zeeland and has plans to feature more typically Dutch vegetables depending on the season. Artistically, exquisite dishes featuring local produce complement the artworks by old Dutch Masters displayed within the hotel and in guest rooms.
As a Green Globe Certified hotel, sustainability practices are well- implemented and supported by staff at the property. A comprehensive communications strategy includes the availability of The Sustainability Management Plan on the hotel website and distribution of guest directories in rooms containing information about Green Globe as well as energy, water and waste conservation. In addition, the hotel conducts regular ongoing staff training on environmental and sustainability initiatives and a wide range of sustainability topics are covered in e-learning modules.
The hotel reopened its doors in July after a shutdown period due to COVID 19 travel restrictions. For further information please see www.conservatoriumhotel.com
