The Set Hotels stay true to a beautiful message for the operation of their three hotels:
“These are places people love, want to return to and to tell others about. Simply put, they are the modern grand hotels of our time.”
On my recent trip to Europe I had the opportunity to experience 2 out of the 3 hotels they have. I did a quick stopover in Amsterdam and Paris. I was truly impressed with both of them.
I had heard so much about this hotel that I couldn’t wait to get off the plane to experience it. Located in the Museum Square district, the true heart of the city of Amsterdam, the Conservatorium is an architectural dream that combines a landmark heritage building that was once a bank with a contemporary design.
The masterpiece of this hotel is the open entryway where the front desk and main restaurant is located. I loved being surrounded by the contemporary design drinking my morning coffee and enjoying breakfast.
The room design has a very unique and modern design to it. You will find 40% of the 129 rooms/suites are a duplex with stairs that lead to the bedroom area. I loved that these rooms had 2 bathrooms, one having a large shower that you could dance in!
Throughout the hotel you will find symbols left behind reminding you of it’s historical bank days like bee’s on tile and a collection of piggy banks. The have a really cool bar that was the first Gin & tonic Bar in Amsterdam. Lastly the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Center/ Spa was breathtaking and the ideal place to take a step back to relax.
I was really anticipating my stay here since it was newly renovated and reopened about 3 weeks before I arrived.
Located in the Left bank it’s a well known landmark and the only luxury grand hotel in the area. Originally opened in 1910 and quickly became a place where the anonymous could be found alongside the famous, where art, philosophy, science and politics were continually created, discreetly and without ostentation. Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Picasso, Matisse and Josephine Baker where among regular visitors to the hotel.
It recently reopened July 2018 with a mixture of the original hotel and a new modern twist with highlights of white marble everywhere. This is a great place to stay if you have already been to Paris a few times and want to stay in an area that isn't full of tourists. You will feel the local vibe all around this area which I loved. It has a hip scene that now features an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars and lounges throughout the historical ground floor.
They have added on a 6 treatment-room Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Center/ Spa with a beautiful swimming pool and gorgeous marble treatment rooms.
The halls leading up to the guest rooms feel as if you are on a big ship and as you enter the room it has tones of dark navy blue with white marble giving it a luxurious feel. I recommend a room with a balcony that faces the Eiffel tower. All the bath amenities are Hermes which is especially picked for this hotel since the flagship Hermes store is located right next door!
The 3rd hotel in this “Set” is Hotel Café Royal in London which will be the next on my list when I visit London! This luxury hotel is located on Regent Street steps from Piccadilly. It's where history, culture, business and the stage are just steps away.
