I have been coming to Amsterdam since 1978 and l can say my stay at the Dylan has been the most impressive and memorable. The attention to detail is exceptional the atmosphere enchanting and the Staff like family. I was entertaining Dutch friends at the Vinkeles which was just amazing. They loved it !! Well Done !

Sitting outside in the Dylan courtyard with a whiskey and a cigarette. What a lovely hotel. Great service, wonderful food in Vinkeles and a buzzing atmosphere in the bar. My favourite place to stay in this fantastic city. Perfect in both summer and winter.
