The Convent Hotel sits in a 14th century building that, you guessed it, used to house not one but two convents. The hotel elegantly highlights the building’s history, which you can read more about in their collection of books in the lobby. Also featured among the books is a stone sculpture of the Virgin Mary, which was found in the building during renovations. It is only a replica however, as the original is displayed in the city museum. The interior décor is stylish, with warm tones and low lighting. The lounge is maybe a little too dark (or cozy depending on how you look at it), but it does create an intimate atmosphere, and it’s easy to pass the time on their comfortable large chairs of red velvet. The hotel does not have a restaurant for lunch and dinner but they do have a breakfast room. Nevertheless, there are plenty of options for eating out in the neighborhood: barely a ten minute walk to the Central Station or the Dam square. The rooms smell fantastic, with a light perfume that I thought was a wonderful detail. Also, the beds’ feathery interiors are re-plumped by the cleaning staff every day for extra cushioning comfort.

For a boutique hotel, it needs a little bit of TLC. Though comfortable enough, the Convent Hotel is small, dark, and reminded me of, well, a convent! (Not sure if the name implies its history...) The bar and lobby are old and dark, which gave the place a general atmosphere of loneliness -- although a few bookcases stand in the corner of the lobby for self-indulgent reading, when the atmosphere works to your advantage. However, the major redeemer is that the rooms manage to be elegant - the high ceilings and crossbeams were a lovely touch of architecture, while the pastel striped wallpaper and old paintings, coupled with the old-manor-style furniture added to the ambience in this case. Overall, the Convent has an old-world feel that takes some getting used to, but still a comfortable and convenient choice.
